Lucky for you they’re offering early bird tickets until June 15th. And they’ve almost sold out of the early bird rate so hurry up and get your tickets now before the price goes up! Event tickets found here.

What’s new: This year, Eat Drink SF has added a special Grand Tasting on Sunday, August 28, to celebrate the Golden Gate Restaurant Association’s 80th anniversary and honor the legacy restaurants in the Bay Area. The Sunday Afternoon Grand Tasting will feature Bay Area bars and restaurants that have been open for at least 25 years and that have helped shaped the distinct flavor of the local culinary experience, such as including Scoma’s, Sutro’s at the Cliff House, and Goat Hill Pizza. Additionally, the San Francisco Brewers Guild will be pouring local craft beers at all Grand Tastings in a dedicated beer garden.
