Wednesday, July 25th: At the W Hotel, XYZ continues its tradition of Sip and Splurge. It’s decadent, rewarding and has something for everyone, from rare champagne paired with tuna carpaccio to vin santo paired with chocolate hazelnut cake.

Saturday, July 28th: Every Saturday, Jack Falstaff’s Executive Chef Jonnatan Leiva goes to the Farmers Market, whips up something nice from the day’s finds and then shares his bounty. Tastings are a mere $5 and wine pairings are just $3. More information, including reservations, can be found on the official website.

Wednesday, August 1st: The first Wednesday of the month means wine class at the Fifth Floor. For the August edition, Sommelier Emily Wine (real name) is putting together Wine and Cheese 101. Room in the class goes quickly, so hop to it.

Saturday, August 18th and Sunday, August 19th: It’s a cooking class … for singles. TWO presents Hot Summer Nights. It’s $80 a pop. Saturday is for the straights and Sunday is for the gays. People attending probably won’t want to mix up the days. That’d be quite the waste of $80. But it would be a good story.

• And while we’re in the area, an FYI: the restaurant at ballplayer haunt Roe is currently undergoing renovations, but the club is still up and running.
