Celebrate 15 seasons of Check, Please! Bay Area with our first-ever virtual Taste & Sip event!

The Bay Area has always been the culinary heartbeat of America, bringing together diverse and delicious flavors. Check, Please! Bay Area and its annual Taste & Sip event have been dedicated to showcasing dining experiences — from upscale to earthy — that reflect the distinctive character of our community for fifteen seasons.

Now, as local restaurants and their staffs face unprecedented disruptions to business because of the coronavirus, Check, Please! invites you to celebrate their resilience by ordering takeout from restaurants that have appeared on the show and joining host Leslie Sbrocco for a virtual event.

We’ll revisit favorite moments from the show’s fifteen seasons, and we’ll speak with Chef Tanya Holland of Brown Sugar Kitchen and others about industry relief efforts. Then, viewers can taste and sip along with an at-home version of the Check, Please! show, featuring special guests reviewing takeout, and tutorials in cocktail mixing with Range Life and in wine pairing with Leslie.

Join the event on Twitch or catch the livestream on Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Enter to win fabulous prizes announced by Leslie at the end of the event with our “Show Us Your Receipts” raffle!

Just post photos or screenshots of your receipts for takeout orders from Check, Please!-affiliated restaurants (for purchases dated from August 20 to the night of the event on September 3) on Twitter or Instagram and tag @KQED with the #TasteAndSip.
