<b>SOFA Fun:</b> On Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m., Santa Rosa's South of A Street — hence, SOFA — hosts their annual Vine Art. It's one of the hip neighborhood's best events of the year.

When you pony up twenty-five bucks, you get to sip and nibble your way through the studios, chatting with artists and representatives of participating wineries, running into friends and enjoying all manner of surprises. The areas cafe's and restaurants are participating, too, and it's really anyone's guess at this point what they'll be offering.

Whatever it is, it will be interesting, delicious and fun, as things here always are.

It all takes place just south of Juilliard Park, on South A Street at the intersection of Sebastopol Ave. If you drive to the event, arrive early or be prepared to walk several blocks.
