As we get older, and the space between now and college graduation gets bigger and bigger, the life of the twenty-something seems more and more elusive.  Don’t get us wrong, we have great lives here in Southern California, but the roadmap to navigate through life is certainly less defined than it was in school several years ago.  We look around now and there’s clearly a lot going on in the world—new presidents, healthcare reform, fight for marriage equality, wars, and the like.  And not to mention what’s going on around in our personal lives. As we try to establish meaningful personal relationships and climb the ladders in our career, it seems everyone around us is getting married, having babies, being promoted left and right, and traveling all around the world.

If there’s anything that can bring it all back down to earth for us, it’s the food!  Having a medium to cook meals of our choice and share it with the world is something we’re immensely thankful for (thank you for your support!).  In addition, we love to get involved with a good cause whenever possible.  Combining a food experience with a worthy cause is truly a wonderful thing.  We are happy to share with you our participation in the one of SoCal’s biggest food events and meaningful causes of the year—The Saban Free Clinic’s 12th Annual Extravaganza for the Senses!

This event is a food and wine extravaganza to raise funds for high-quality, free medical care for the uninsured and working poor (something we all can agree is important).  On Saturday, July 18, 2009 at 20th Century Fox Studios, more than 2,000 guests will sample unlimited food and wine, enjoying the music of DJ Scott Silva as we all mingle beneath the stars.  Last year’s sell-out event raised more than $200,000 to help provide free health care and social services to those in need. More than 100 wineries and 40 prime Los Angeles-area restaurants donate fine wine and food for the event, which is presented by The Wine House and the New Friends of The Saban Free Clinic, a group of young professionals who volunteer to help raise funds for the Clinic.  One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the Clinic.

It’s an understatement when we say “We are crunk!” for this event.  What a great reason to dress up “grown and sexy,” experience gourmet foods from the best of Los Angeles and wine from all of California!  If you’re in the area this weekend, you should check it—here’s the ticket information, they are available until 5 pm on July 18th.  If you decide to come out and support the Saban Clinic, tap us on the shoulder.  We’ll do a toast to those in need.  Stay tuned for more!
