If you live in the Bay Area, PS I Love You’s Dark & Delicious Event provides an amazing food and wine experience.

It’s on Friday, February 19, 2010, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

This year the event is returning to Rock Wall Wine Company in Alameda (Kent Rosenblum’s new winery).

With 40 preeminent Petite Sirah wine companies and about 30 fabulous Napa and Bay Area restaurants and/or food caterers,  there’s nowhere else that you can have this much fun for only $60 per person.

Free parking, no gratuity… It’s awesome. One year someone asked me if we had doggie bags. I got his point, but we don’t do that, because it’s just too complicated… Yes, it’s that good!

Check out Dark & Delicious 2009 for a retrospective view.

There are also people from all over the US that fly in for this one, too. For them, it’s not about the value, it’s about the experience. One guest from last year told me that he’s beginning to find friends from one year to the next, as this has become their “annual gathering.” Dark & Delicious attracts a small, but passionate crowd each year.

Tickets can be purchased on the Dark & Delicious Event Website in the left hand column. Just scroll down a bit.

Tickets sell out each year, and this year is already showing great promise. Again, $60 per person.
