It's Zinfandel season in San Francisco this weekend January 24th. The 13th annual ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates and Producers) festival is going on at Fort Mason. The main event (melee?) is a trade and public tasting on Saturday. Wine businesses and media from 10 until 1, public from 1:30 until 5. If you're interested in going and you don't have the connections or the credentials to get a press pass, put on your football pads and athletic supporters and brave the crowds: at 11:00 AM on Saturday the 24th a limited number of tickets will go on sale for $55.
