WOW! What a magical day at our signature event, The Main Dish, featuring our Palate Pass Tasting Experience: 15 featured chefs paired with diverse winemakers, plus even more wineries, a Marketplace, DJs, live musical performances, and more!

We know you all left FULL – stomachs and joyful hearts – as we did too! We started the day with an epic “Circle Up” Make It Mariko style with all our chefs, vendors, winemakers, and partners. Tears we shed as we remembered that none of us are alone on this journey, trailblazing new spaces and territories that people like us never have before.

Thank you to everyone who came through to our first Main Dish event! We will never forget this magical day of connection and community.

Thank you to our amazing Event Partners!
