I had the opportunity to attend the Saturday Evening Grand Tasting of Eat Drink SF. This is its eighth year, and they had four tasting events spread over three days. Each of the tastings featured dozens (if not hundreds) of incredible restaurants, breweries, and distilleries. Show up hungry and thirsty because its unlimited food and drinks the second you walk in the door. Here are just a few highlights from an unforgettable night:
By the end of this, I was completely immobilized. I’ll be dreaming of this night until Eat Drink SF 2017 comes around.
