Taste a world of difference with Wines of Portugal in San Francisco on Wednesday April 6th, from 5:30pm-8pm. A unique tasting of 150-plus wines—from the dry reds of Bairrada to the delicious whites of the Minho, and from the newly renamed Tejo and Lisbon regions to the progressive offerings from Alentejo and Duoro. Wines are paired with Iberian appetizers, and a Master Class by Master Sommelier Keith Goldston at 6pm has spaces available.

All proceeds from ticket sales go to Meals On Wheels of San Francisco. Tickets are $35 online for the Grand Tasting only, and $50 online for the Master Class AND the Grand Tasting (what a deal!). Buy your ticket here.

The tasting will be held downtown at the One Leidesdorff Building, 344 Pine Street (between Sansome and Montgomery), San Francisco.

One month ago, yours truly launched Deep Dishing, a new kind of forum about Bay Area restaurants and bars. What’s different? Well, to start, this community is based on positivity. It’s about what to order, not what to avoid. It’s about sharing what’s good, what rocks your socks off, and why you’d want to return somewhere—not why you want to run away. It’s also about sharing secrets, like what’s off the menu, or your favorite super-duper sandwich combo.

Before heading over to a new hotspot, like Cotogna or Prospect, or maybe a place that’s been on your list, like Out the Door on Bush, take a peek at Deep Dishing first to see what dishes the community recommends. You may even pick up a hot tip or two.

You can post (and drool over) pictures, vote and comment on dishes, share hot tips, and even ask questions in the Tip Please! forum—and help solve the dilemmas of your fellow diners.

Content will also grow (obviously) since we just started, but I’m already so impressed with the quality of the content on the site. So check it out, create a profile, start voting and posting, and I hope you have fun dishing it up.
