If you answer “No”, that’s perfect because:
A) You must be a really nasty person with no passion for life, so we don’t want you anyways!
B) And — since the Annual Fundraiser La SoirÃ©e 26th Beaujolais and Beyond Festival is definitely gonna be a sell-out event — it just means more tickets available for all of us Foodies, Winers, Shoppers and fun Francophiles!
Some people cross off the calendar days until Christmas or their Birthdays but I’ve always X’d out the days until “Beaujolais Nouveau” (first wine of the year) hits town. And there is no “Funner” way to take advantage of this opportunity than to:
Come and celebrate the launch of the First French wine of the year at the annual fundraising event organized by the French-American Chamber of Commerce, San Francisco. This is a time to celebrate the harvest in a grandiose atmosphere of Food and Wine tasting. If you can’t make it to France in time for the traditional celebration of the uncorking of the first wine of the year, join 1000 avid party-goers for an evening of celebration right here in San Francisco.
