Foreign Cinema's Spiffy New Wine Room, Taste of the Nation Tickets For Sale and More

THE MISSION - Foreign Cinema just put in this new walk-in wine cellar full of 2,500 of wine director Zach Pace's favorite bottles. Mike Lederle of Good Wood in Berkeley custom-crafted the thing, which is quite a looker now on the mezzanine level. "Our regulars can come in and peruse the storage room before making a selection for the first time," says Pace. "There's room for me to pour tastes in there and it will be a great addition to private dinners." Oenophiles may also be interested in the six-vintage vertical of Radio-Coteau Pinot Noir, Savoy Vineyard, Anderson Valley he's now holding and a 1996 Champagne Salon. [EaterWire]

COMING ATTRACTIONS - Tickets are now on sale for Share Our Strength's annual Taste of the Nation event, co-chaired by Traci Des Jardins and Chris Cosentino. Considered to be one of the better tasting events of the year, this year's table parade will inhabit the Bentley Reserve on April 7th. Confirmed restaurants to date include A16, Bar Tartine, Michael Mina, RN74, Fifth Floor, Incanto, Baker & Banker and Spruce, among others. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION EXTRA - The idyllic Heirloom Cafe will host a "Late-Late-Winter Supper Club" on March 20th with a $35 three course menu and a special cellar list of wines to accompany it. No corkage fee is charged if you bring in an opened bottle. Email for reservations or more information. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND - Eating About Beer underground dinner club is hosting a dinner next Sunday featuring six courses paired with their home-brewed beers (and one sake) at Commonwealth Cafe & Pub (2882 Telegraph Ave). Find the menu and tickets, which just went on sale today, here. [EaterWire]
