I have plans for Saturday, now – Chef Mark has invited me to help him do the tasting at this weekend’s Wine and Dine for the Arts benefit at the Crowne Plaza in Albany.   The tasting runs from 1-4pm, and tickets are $50 per person (available on the event website).

There will be photos forthcoming – Chef Mark instructed me to show up at his restaurant “at 11am, with a camera and casual pants”.  Woo-hoo!
