The written word can be better appreciated with a glass of wine in hand. On Sunday, October 14 from 2-5pm, WriterHouse hosts its third annual Words and Wine fundraiser at Glass House Winery. Tickets, purchased in advance at writerhouse.org or at the door, cost $30 and include a tasting of Jeff and Michelle Sander’s wine and artisanal chocolates, some light bites, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win prized prizes.
Dine and disco
Where can you eat borscht and baklava, play pool, and get your groove on? The new M&M Lounge and Restaurant that opened in the Outback Lodge space last week serves Eastern European specialities (24-hour marinated kebabs cooked on an outdoor grill and Russian hors d’oeuvres with caviar) every day from 11am-10pm. When you’re feeling sufficiently spicy, grab a cocktail and hit the dance floor or hustle your friends in a game of eight ball.
Down the hatch
Pork usually, er, hogs the spotlight, but at Rapture’s Second annual Pig & Whiskey dinner, it’ll have some competition at the table. On Tuesday, October 16 at 7pm, Executive Chef Chris Humphrey will pair five pork-centric courses (from amuse to dessert and snout to tail) with five different whiskeys (from bourbon to rye) for $64 a person (excluding tax and tip). Call 293-9526 for reservations, but don’t mosey: Seats for this dynamic duo are bound to go fast.
Step on up
There’s a new buffet in town, perfect for Downtown-ers looking for a new place to lunch. At Henry’s on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am-2pm, $7.95 gets you a hearty lunch from the soup and salad bar plus access to rotating themed buffets. Specialities from the country buffet include white chicken chili, roasted pork with mashed taters and gravy, and sweet potato pie. Expect hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, and fries this week and an Italian-theme next week.
