Besides Bravo music festival (Dallas, Philadelphia and NY symphonies, plus dance), the one event I’m willing to spend bucks on every year is the Larkspur Wine University. Kevin Futado, wine guy at Larkspur, runs very interactive and fun session about the “grape of the night” every Thursday. The wines he pours are terrific. The schedule is on the Larkspur web site:

Besides, this spring has been very wet, so the wild flowers should be killer.
