Diner’s Agenda: Educational Drinking

Diner’s Agenda wants a hot drink on this cold and rainy day.

Friday, April 27
•Tonight’s Wine 101 event at the Back Bay Events Center feature seven top Napa Valley wine makers and “luscious” hors d’oeuvres, all to benefit women with breast cancer. So, let’s check our list of what makes an event great: wine: check! Food: check! Charity: check! Yeah. You should probably check this out. The event starts at 6:00 and tickets, which cost $50, may be purchased by calling (978) 456-3532. [The Virginia Thurston Healing Garden: Events]

•Make new beer buddies and sample the best of what Allston bars have to offer at the Boston BeerAdvocate Social which begins at 4:00 at Sunset Grill & Tap. At 7:00, participants will move to Deep Ellum, before ending the evening (or, at least, the pre-scheduled portion of the evening) at Common Ground at 9:00. No reservations are necessary.

•We apologize deeply for the song we are about to get stuck in your head, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the reception that Rialto will be holding at noon for the authors of On Top of Spaghetti. There will be demonstrations and there will be nibbles and the whole thing costs $35. Call (617) 661-5050 to save your place. [Rialto: News & Events]
