I know this event seems a bit more arty than food and winey, but read on! I got this from Julia, a waitress at Delfina who is also the event coordinator for this place. Here’s the dealio:
“Come experience a vibrant representation of the creative culture of San Francisco: ~THE RED POPPY ART HOUSE~ is auctioning off a beautiful collection of works by some of the Bay Area’s most talented artists, in an evening set to celebrate art, music, and food. Five composer/musicians improvise an evening of jazz, classical, Argentine tango, and Balkan music, while five artists craft works and draw from a live model. Delicious wine and culinary creations by three up-and-coming chefs from a variety of top Bay Area restaurants: Delfina, Chez Panisse, and the Radio Africa Kitchen. We will begin with a silent auction (from 6:30pm–7:45pm), followed by a live auction at 8pm. Come out to support and be a part of the San Francisco artists’ community!
The Red Poppy Art House is a working artists’ studio, gallery, classroom, and performance space. We are dedicated to providing an accessible and intimate experience of the arts, and are convinced that the joy and power of the arts lie in the creative process much more than in the creative product. We are committed to bringing that process to public light. The Art House hosts interdisciplinary arts events, collaborative exhibitions, workshops, small concerts, and private parties."
