San Francisco Magazine Fall Fest 2011

Hello, I attended San Francisco Magazine Fall Fest 2011 on Sunday.  The event was held at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.  Thanks to my friend who was working at the event, she invited me as her guest. 

Boy, was I glad I went!  It was a foodies' heaven, the outdoor venue was taken over by a congregation of local restaurants, wineries, vendors, and music.  There were also chef demos, cocktails competition, and wine tasting seminars, etc...all in one place.  Meals on Wheels was one of the partners at the event.  Their mission is to provide isolated home bound seniors in San Francisco with nutritious meals, daily human contact, and supportive services to prevent their premature institutionalization.  The volunteers were on hand to accept on the spot donations.  Also, the proceeds from the raffle sales from the event all went to Meals on Wheels.

All in all, it was a perfect Sunday afternoon spent in glorious weather with the Blue Angels flying over us for only a short while (the air show was cancelled due to fog).  I managed to taste and drink almost everything in sight and snapped up some photos from the scene.

Until next post......
