Next Saturday, May 1, celebrate the area’s best in food and wine at Festa di Vino, an event held at the Aerospace Museum. The entire museum will be transformed to host more than 20 local restaurants and 20 area wineries, each serving up samples for you to feast all night long.
Restaurants include 33rd Street Bistro, Il Forno Classico, Iron Steaks, Mamma Susanna’s, PF Chang’s, and more. Wineries include (my favorite) Rail Bridge Cellars, Madrona Vineyards, Todd Taylor, Scribner Bend, and others. Last year’s famous fudge made by nonprofit Women’s Empowerment will also make a guest appearance this year. Trust me, you don’t want to miss that fudge! (I helped make it last year. And helped eat it. By the pound.)
Best of all? You can attend FREE! I’ve got one ticket each for the first two people… …to send me an email to greenbeet AT SacRag DOT com that includes 1) “Festa di Vino tickets” in the subject line, and 2) your favorite fudge recipe. (Just kidding about the recipe! Unless you really want to.)
If you don’t win, you can always buy tickets for $50 each at http://www.festadivino.com or at http://www.womens-empowerment.org. And save some fudge for me, will ya?
Finally, for the purposes of full disclosure, I am on the planning committee for this event. That’s all the proof you need that it will be a killer event! Hope you will join us!
