Beverly Hills Wine Tasting To Fight Hunger (?)
If you happen to be in the area of the Greystone Mansion tonight, looking for something to do and have $75 burning in your pocket, check out the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank’s Wine Tasting and Silent Auction. Great wines are being featured from boutique wineries around California and there will also be (according to the press release) “fine chocolates and gourmet cheeses” too.
Now, here at LAist, we are all for doing good in the community but in carrying on with the day’s theme of the slightly weird, does it seem slightly off to have a benefit for people without food occurring at an opulent Bev. Hills mansion where there will surely be food going to waste? But who knows, we could be wrong and it is for a good cause. Right?
