The Incredible Friday night Grand Tasting at Eat Drink SF 2016

Eat Drink SF is always a weekend of amazing eats, drinks and fun. Not only is this special because of my passion for food, chefs, wine, cocktails and everything in between but this really feels like a Homecoming party for us in the industry plus the locals of San Francisco who attend and enjoy this incredible weekend. A huge congrats to my dear friend Gwyneth Borden, Director of The GGRA and her team on yet another amazing Eat Drink SF. As they say, it takes a village and they partner with DPEM Event Marketing, Wagstaff Worldwide San Francisco amongst many other vital members to put on this festival so a HUGE thanks to those who worked so hard to make this possible.

See all of the fun I had and some of my favorite Eats and Drinks below. If you want to see what Saturday night’s Grand Tasting was like, read more here.
