If any of my readers are located anywhere near San Francisco, you should save the date of Friday, February 9th, 2008 from 6-9pm local time. That day is when we are all encouraged to shell out $50 and go PSycho about Petite Sirah.
That is, at Dark & Delicious, the consumer Petite Sirah event, featuring 35 different wineries pouring their delicious, mouth-drying, teeth-staining, liquid perfection at the
Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. This quasi-religious enological experience will also feature 20 different food vendors, and will offer enough different types of meat and dessert to balance out any Petite Sirah.
You can only purchase tickets at PSILoveYou. Don't delay your purchase, because last year's event sold out and this year's is expected to sell out as well.
If I were even in the Midwest, I would be there. Unfortunately, between the time off from work and the cost of plane fare and accommodations, I am not able to go this year. I am, however, blocking off the date so I can be there in '09.
For those who are able to attend, I would love to hear all about it, in the comments, via email, or even in a post on here if you'd prefer.
