I don't drink much champagne, a habit I desperately need to break. I hear it goes well with pizza among other things. I need to research this theory. And if any of you need evening plans, you can do some champagne research yourself! *Note: Perrier-Jouët may or may not be on the menu. My lack of champagne leads to a lack of champagne photos.*
Tour de Champagne debuted eight years ago in Washington, D.C., but it only began touring the country last October starting with San Francisco. Each stop benefits a local charity while highlighting different champagnes and cuisines. This evening at la.venue, forever known to me as The Tunnel, the party starts with a champagne seminar and tasting, then it's culinary treats including La Maison du Chocolat, a silent auction benefiting Action Against Hunger, and a raffle for two round-trip tickets to Paris. Tickets are still available at many price points, to get yours click here. For more information on everyone involved, click here.
