SAN FRANCISCO—The details have been released for Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation, always one of the top charity events of the year (see last year). This year's edition—at Acme Chophouse on April 23—is headed by honorary co-chairs Traci des Jardins and Jamie Lauren, and will feature over 20 local chefs in a tasting event. Then, the Gala Dinner is a multi-course meal by Iron Chef Michael Symon, Chris Cosentino, Gavin Kaysen (Cafe Boulud), Koren Grieveson (Chicago's Avec) and Elizabeth Falkner. And again, it's for charity. Tickets and more info here. [EaterWire]

CASTRO—Starting in mid-April, Home will be open for lunch service, meaning it will be open daily from 11am to midnight (except weekends, when it's open at 10am for brunch). [EaterWire]

WINE COUNTRY—How's the wine industry coping these days? Unsurprisingly, not well: "For the short term, it is as tough as in any other sector. Many tasting rooms are quieter than usual, sales are off for the premiere wines that Napa Valley is famous for producing. Sales tax revenues are down in several local cities, in part because visitors are fewer and are spending-shy." [NVR]
