  2. ....And if you can't make the morning session - attend the same workshop at the West Roxbury Library tonight at 6:45 p.m. Also for free. Refreshments will be served at both sessions.
  3. On Tuesday, attend Wine 101 at Blanchard's Wine & Spirits. $15. A beginner's wine class based on an introduction to tasting. Approaching classic wines made from the most popular grape varieties grown in their typical regions in order to give the novice a good idea of what to expect from the most commonly encountered bottles on a restaurant wine list. Discuss the basics of wine and food pairing and introduce the concepts and tools that will help you. The point of this class is that the students walk away with an appreciation of wine that goes beyond the feeling that "it tastes good", because while we love tasty beverages we also find a lot to appreciate in the greater context of history, geography and culture that surrounds wine. Tickets can be reserve here.
