Celebrating 19 years, Race for the Arts' premiere event, Off to the Races Food & Wine Tasting, takes place on Saturday, August 19 as the tradition continues in style, at the California Railroad Museum (125 "I" Street, Old Sacramento).  New this year is the food and wine pairing to be judged by the "three tenors", the well-known and respected culinary experts Darrell Corti, David Berkley and Mike Dunne.  During the blind tasting, the judges will determine the best pairing of food with wine (one brewery) and present the Judge's Award to the winner.  Additionally, as guests sample delectable delights from select restaurants, wineries and brewery, they are encouraged to vote for their favorite pairing for the People's Choice Award.

As guests enter the museum, they will be greeted by the sounds of Rio Americano Small Jazz Ensemble, pick up their souvenir wine glasses (courtesy of Grebitus & Sons Fine Jewelers) and enjoy the engaging exhibits at the California State Railroad Museum.  The innovative Capital Dance Project will perform, followed by a musical performance  from Kitty O'Neal and Kurt Spataro.
