Diner’s Agenda cannot believe last night’s Wire.

•If the press releases we receive every day are to be believed, Boston just can’t get enough of Spanish wine dinners. There’s another one at Tasca at 7pm. $49 gets you five courses with wine pairings, including a delightful sounding herb crusted lamb chop over a white bean and duck casoulet. Call (617) 730-8002 to save your spot. [Tasca]
•Hey, service industry readers! Sel De La Terre is hosting a leap year party/service industry celebration from 11pm-2am. There will be food and drink aplenty, as well as live music. The best part? It’s all free. [Sel De La Terre]
•We don’t know if you’ve heard, but Starbucks nationwide will be closed from 5:30pm-8:30pm. We are of the mind that the world will not end (hint: you can patronize neighborhood coffee shops!), but Dunkin’ Donuts apparently feels slightly differently. In order to capitalize on the Starbucks spillover, they’ll be offering 99 cent lattes and cappucinos from 1pm-10pm. Hot. [Dunkin’ Donuts]
