Lost your passport? Can't swing a weekend in Mexico? The East L.A. Meets Napa tasting event on Friday at Union Station is one way to try some of L.A.'s finest Latino-owned restaurants, meet chefs like John Sedlar and try pairing Latin flavors with wines from both Baja and Latino-owned vineyards in California. East L.A. Meets Napa is a benefit for AltaMed, which gives access for health care to underserved populations. Tickets are $150, and the outdoor patio setting at Union Station is a lovely Spanish-style setting for the event.
