If you haven’t gotten your tickets for Charlie Palmer’s annual Pigs & Pinot in San Francisco CA, time is running short. The event takes place Friday March 21st and Saturday March 22nd.

A sellout each year, this year’s luxe event features chef Palmer and Dry Creek Kitchen’s Dustin Valette, Amanda Freitag (New York’s Empire Diner, multiple TV chef competitions), Bryan Voltaggio (Washington DC’s Volt, and Frederick, Maryland’s Range), Frank Crispo (New York’s Crispo), and Philippe Rispoli (of PB Boulangerie and Bistro on Cape Cod).

Featured winemakers include CIRQ, Domaine Pierre Gelin, Roth, Rochioli, and Pyramid Valley Vineyards.

Events include:
– Taste of Pigs & Pinot, Friday March 21st, 6:30pm-9pm, $175
– Tournament of the Pig, Saturday March 22nd, 10:30am-12:30pm, $125
– Ultimate Pinot Smackdown, Saturday March 22nd, 1pm-3pm, $125

Of course, this isn’t just a ridiculous eat and drink fest; it’s a fundraiser for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, scholarships to the CIA and Sonoma State’s Wine Program, The Healdsburg Education Foundation, Children of Sonoma Vineyard Workers Scholarships, and a whole lot more (including sending a local cheerleading team to the national championships).
