When Penelope Shackelford asks if you want to be her date for the SOCO Uncorked event (or any for that matter), there is no answer to give other than ‘yes.’ The intriguing writer has more than been around the block; she’s matriarch of the neighborhood and everyone at the Mix knows and adores her. I’m elated that our paths crossed there and have morphed our relations from acquaintance to client to teacher to friend.
So I joined her, camera in one hand, wine glass in the other, for the second annual food and wine festival at SOCO’s OC Mix. Please visit her blog to read [a more well written recap of] the story. And be sure to scroll all the way through to view the awesome dance party that broke out at the end of the evening, thanks to Matt Mauser and the Tijuana Dogs. Thursday night entertainment at its finest.
