Extravaganza For The Senses: July 16th, Los Angeles

OK all you wine lovers in Los Angeles, listen up. July 16th marks the 8th annual Extravaganza For The Senses, which is basically LA's version of some of the big wine and food events that take place every few months up here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Like some of those events, this one benefits an extremely good cause: the LA Free Clinic, which has been providing free medical care, counseling, and legal and social services to needy folks in LA since 1967.

Held on the main lot of 20th Century Fox, this 3 to 4 hour evening extravaganza draws a sold-out crowd of nearly 2000 wine and food lovers each year. It's mostly about eating and drinking, but there are a whole lineup of DJs spinning tunes, fortune tellers, henna tattoo artists, and all sort of interesting things added to the mix.

Tickets are $75 General Admission and $175 VIP admission until Friday (July 1st) at which point they jump to $90 and $200. VIP admission allows you to enter one hour early, special parking privileges, a separate seating area, and some food that the general public doesn't get.

I've never been to this event but it sounds like fun, albeit maybe a bit crowded.
