Food + Wine Events in Los Angeles and Elsewhere, June 2009

Especially since June is my birthday month, I’m keeping track of as much fun as an embedded google calendar and blog post will allow. From the looks of it so far, that’s a lot of fun.

If you happen to hear/read/know of more food+wine events in Los Angeles, just let me know in the comments so I can add it to the calendar and pretend like my social calendar is this full.
