    Jazz on the Plazz

    Strike up the band. Pack your picnic basket. It's time for some jazz. Los Gatos' own Jazz in the Plazz has become a world-renowned music series. Best of all, it's still free!

    We sat down with Jazz on the Plazz's Executive Producer, Michael Jacobi, to see what's in store for the 2011 season.

    Here are the scheduled performances this summer:

    Come one, come all. Come chardonnay, and come brie. We'll see you there!


    An Event to Remember

    It was a very successful event...the wines and food plus the tequilas were excellent.

    The evening turned out to be a very romantic evening...



    Sabor del Valle

    Sabor del Valle is having a Gala wine and Tequila Tasting on July 29,2010, at History San Jose in Kelly Park. It will be a fun and exciting fundraiser for four local non-profit organizations:

    We will be showcasing Latino vintners from Napa Valley and Sonoma County, as well as a variety of unique Tequilas. The students of the Center for Employment Center Culinary Arts School will be preparing and serving gourmet appetizers. Music and contemporary Latino art will also be featured. The Guest of Honor will be the Mexican Consul General David Figueroa O.

    Several years ago, I was at an event in Napa where the local vintners were having a fundraiser for some local non-profit organizations. I felt that we could do the same in the Bay Area, especially since our economy has been in a slump since 2007. This has hit our local non-profits hard, making it difficult to continue with their services to the communities.

    Sabor del Valle came from a dream... now it's becoming a reality.

    It's a FUN-raiser... for a great cause.
