NAPA—If you're still bumming about those Douglas Keane dinners at Jardiniere that sold out almost immediately, get excited: the former Cyrus chef is popping up again, in a team-up with La Folie's Roland Passot and La Toque's Ken Frank at the latter restaurant next Friday, April 12. The seven-course "It's the Principle" meal will benefit CHEFS, the Coalition for Ethical and Humane Farming Standards; wine lovers will be particularly stoked to note that you can either bring your own bottle with corkage waived, or purchase any of La Toque's bottles at 50% off. The trio will also be auctioning off a private dinner, cooked by them, at Keane's home. Tickets are $300; call La Toque at (707) 257-5157 for reservations. Update: The dinner's been cancelled, and the trio are planning a more lavish event for the charity down the line. [EaterWire]

NAPA—Wine-tasting fans will be happy to learn that Oneotri is now open for lunch on weekends from 11 am-2:30 pm. A pizza and a couple of pastas should provide excellent ballast for an afternoon of sampling the local vintages. [Inside Scoop]

THE EMBARCADERO—Giants opening day is fast approaching, and the folks at Waterbar are reviving their Friday-afternoon outdoor bake sale benefit for kids' cancer charities for the occasion. For $5, you can score a goodie bag with a chocolate sandwich cookie, caramel popcorn, a chocolate chip cookie, and an old-fashioned-flavored snickerdoodle. We got to sample the lineup, and can confirm they're all good, particularly the snickerdoodle, which we wanted about ten more of. It's totally kosher to bring food into the stadium, BTW, so save them for dessert after you sample one of our stadium food picks. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—Acclaimed Sacramento chocolatier Ginger Elizabeth is making an appearance at Four Barrel's alley space on Caledonia Street this Saturday, with treats like an opera cake with Four Barrel coffee mousse, chocolate macaron lollipops, marshmallow batons, gateaux maison, and more. They'll be in residence from 9 am-3 pm. More info here. [EaterWire]
