Help is on the way: Let's raise some funds for our Northern California winemaker friends! The flames may have subsided, but the need for help has not. Join a cluster of local food and wine leaders for a Wine Feast for Fire Relief at Oyster Ridge in Santa Margarita this Dec. 8. You'll dine on local eats crafted by chefs Mateo Rogers and Brittney Yracheta of Heirloom Catering, and Chef Spencer Johnston and Chris Batille of The Monger and the Chef. Plus, you'll enjoy wines, appetizers, desserts, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing you lent a hand when the stakes were high. For more information, email email@example.com or find the event on Facebook ... Libertine Brewing Co. on Broad Street in SLO is gearing up for Caskmas this Dec. 2!
