Gear up your taste buds. The 29th Annual San Francisco Wine Auction is in 2 weeks, and there are about 100 tickets left. Tickets for what? How about a wine tasting, for starters, that features some of California's most prestigious wines from the likes of Staglin, Caymus, Silver Oak, Far Niente, Cakebread, Duckhorn, Flowers, Joseph Phelps, Jones Family, Jordan, Heitz, Patz & Hall, Quintesa, Spring Mountain, the list goes on. Then after the tasting (and the silent auction) you'll sit down for a dinner courtesy of Michael Mina, one of San Francisco's current celebrity chefs. The whole event benefits at-risk San Francisco youth, which is a great cause. If you enjoy wine and food and can afford to, it's a great way to spend an evening.
