TREASURE ISLAND—It's time for the Make-a-Wish Foundation's annual WIne and Wishes fundraiser, which takes place Saturday on Treasure Island. The dinner is already sold-out, but there are still tickets for the gourmet food and wine tasting from 6pm-9pm. If you're so inclined, sample food from over 50 local restaurants like Barbacco, Farallon, La Folie and Nopa and enjoy wine from the likes of Gundlach Bundschu, Heitz, and MacPhail Family Wines. Tickets to benefit the folks that brought you Batkid are $150 each. [EaterWire]

BAY AREA—Three Bay Area restaurants made Food and Wine's list of America's 23 Best Diners, including Fremont Diner in Sonoma for its "throwback charm," Hopscotch in Oakland for its buttermilk fried chicken and "thoughtful" cocktails, and Plow in San Francisco for its "breakfast-centric all-day menu."

Expect an array of tater tot options like Philly cheese tots and poutine tots, plus sliders, buffalo chicken skewers and more from 11am to 11pm. [EaterWire]
