Santa Barbara -Wine

This Saturday, August 26, top wineries and restaurants will gather at the Malibu Civic Center for a showcase of the best wine and food from Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Ventura and Los Angeles counties. It will take place in the courtyard of the civic center, which overlooks the Santa Monica Bay.

Benefitting Childhelp, the largest non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention, education and treatment of child abuse, will be over 60 wineries and 20 restaurants in attendance for the “Grand Tasting.” Summerland and Michael’s? Tablas Creek, Water Grill and STK? I am there!

This will be an afternoon event from 1 pm – 4:30 pm, so make the most of the sights, smells and tastes right on the coast. (And is that Emilio Estevez and Cindy Crawford I see on the front page of the site? Admit it. It wouldn’t be an L.A. event if not for potential elbow-rubbing with some glitz!)

Tickets are available for $79 each, $50 of which is a tax-deductible donation to Childhelp.

Valet parking for the event is $8 per car.

Hope to see you there!
