There's a benefit for Slow Food tonight from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. Admission to "Food from the Heart" is free, and the marketplace's merchants and restaurateurs will be offering seasonal hors d'oeuvres for $2 each, while Slow Food will pour interesting wines to taste for $5 per glass. A bunch of other Valentine's Day-themed events will also be held at the Ferry Plaza farmers market this weekend.
The Potato and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day — he's averse to advertising pressure, and me, I'm just lazy — but we plan to be there, scoping out the snacks and pretending to know varietals, if the rain will let up enough.
Also, just a reminder, if you're hosting or know about an event in the United States (or anywhere, although we have few readers outside the U.S. and the U.K.) that you think our readers would like to know about, drop us a line through the Contact Us e-mail over to the left. We'll add it to the Google calendar and if it's big enough, let people know here how and when to get tickets.
