I just got back to town in time to order my Summertini Tickets and they are selling like…hmmm…free infused martinis? This is one of the Bay Area’s best events.
Sooper creative drinks, a great auction (I’m bidding on the Michael Bauer dinner so WATCH OUT!), delish food from some of my fave restos, tons of excitement and ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

(Ok….I suppose I should disclose that I’m one of the founders of this superb (if I do say so myself:) culinary vocational program. CHEFS is a program of Episcopal Community Services that provides culinary vocational training to prepare homeless and formerly homeless adults for employment in food service.

So better hurry and order your tickets if you want to join us in a toast to a special cause. Sip cocktails, sample food from top Bay Area restaurants and participate in live and silent auctions.

Stunning Silent and Live Auctions Hosted by Bob Sarlatte and George Noceti

Featuring: A week in Provence, a week in New Orleans,
a week in a Tahoe City lake-view home for 20, fine wines,
original artwork, a restaurant “review” dinner with
renowned food critic Michael Bauer, a glamorous weekend
