Looking for something fab to do tonight? There are still a few tickets left for Chenin-igans, a class led by the vivacious Vinny Eng at ~18 REASONS~. You’ll taste and learn about chenin blanc from someone who is very passionate about the wines being poured. 7pm-9pm, $30-$40.

Next Monday June 30th, ~STONES THROW~ is hosting another night in their Eat Like a Chef, Drink Like a Somm charitable dinner series, with a special dinner and wine pairings from Perbacco guests co-owner and chef Staffan Terje and co-owner and wine director Umberto Gibin. It’s $75 per person for the multicourse meal (inclusive of tax and gratuity), and $50 per person for beverage pairings. All proceeds benefit the SF-Marin Food Bank. Make your reservation from 6pm-8:45pm. Guests joining are also encouraged to donate a nonperishable food item to the drive. Look at the menu and reserve your spot here.

On Sunday July 13th from 4pm-9pm, head to Bloomfield Farms in Petaluma with David Lynch, Bill Niles, and the crew at ~ST. VINCENT~ for a three-course farm dinner with lots of wine (but only if you’re not still drunk and rowdy from the World Cup final game at noon that day!). They’ll transport you to the farm, with HenHouse Saison, Wind Gap rosé, and a snack for the ride. Then, you’ll get to tour the farm, hang out in the sunshine, and enjoy dinner in the barn. The menu features produce from Bloomfield Farms and their neighbors, and there will be lots of wine from Wind Gap, Kutch, and Banshee. Tickets are $165 and include tax, gratuity, and transportation (but not the $10 service fee).
