This Saturday, August 20, there will be a wine event at Terroir Tribeca, sponsored by Chamber Street Wines, to raise money for Lydia Tillman, the former Casa Mono sommelier and dear friend to the New York food world who was brutally assaulted in her Colorado home by a man who then set her house on fire. The event is from noon until 3 p.m., and there will be a variety of Spanish wines — including sherry, Rioja, and a range of older vintages — in her honor. The minimum donation is $20, with proceeds all going to Tillman, who is in ICU at a hospital with no health insurance and has lost all of her belongings. Donations can also be made through the Friends of Lydia Facebook page. [Fork in the Road/VV]
