This year the Red Cross Gala is honoring local heroes Tyler Florence, Jackson Phillips, Patrick Foley, Unity Council, and Wells Fargo for their extraordinary contributions, and although the gala is sold out, the (much more affordable) after-party is not — yet. There will be dessert, late-night bites, cocktails, and dancing, with all ticket sales benefitting the American Red Cross.

If you love cheese, you gouda go to the California Artisan Cheese Festival. It’s a, ahem, grate event celebrating artisan cheese via tours, pairings, and tastings throughout the weekend, including the finale on Sunday where there are over 100 artisan cheese and food producers, winemakers, brewers, and chefs serving up their goods. Best of all, it doesn’t cost too much Cheddar… we’re done. Thanks for coming out.
Cost: $45 to $135 (pricier tickets include tours/ info sessions as well as wine/cheese pairings)
