My Big Obsession: Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop. Eatin’

An evening of unforgettably unique dishes and cocktails. Grab a glass and help us kick off another year of San Francisco’s premiere food, wine and spirits festival! A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the Golden Gate Restaurant’s Scholarship Fund.
