May 6 San Diego Press Club Event Features 22 Top Area Chefs

For the past several years, the Press Club has hosted an annual salute to locals who've had a significant impact on San Diego journalism and media. And, every year, the event, which is open to the public, has featured close to two dozen star chefs and regional wineries. I've been to each one and it's a great time with an opportunity to taste wonderful food and wines.

This year's event is on May 6 from 2 to 5:30 p.m. at SDSU's Hepner Hall Quad, and will honor local radio personalities, including Jerry G. Bishop, Joe Bauer (Hudson & Bauer) and Reid Carroll. Tickets are a deal at $40 per person until April 20 and $50 thereafter for an afternoon filled with dining samplers from Bernard Guillas (The Marine Room), Paul McCabe (J. Taylor's Restaurant, L'Auberge Del Mar), Riko Bartolome (Asia Vous), Patrick Heymann (Loews Coronado Bay Resort) Stephen Window (Roppongi), Ryan Johnston (Fresh), Victor Jiminez (Jordan Restaurant, Tower 23), Andreas Nieto (U.S. Grant Hotel) and more.
