•We don’t mean to brag or anything, but we’re really super awesome at trivia. Trust us, you don’t want to go up against us at Trivial Pursuit. We would, however probably not be any good at tonight’s Wine Trivia competition at Gordon’s. If you are a bigger wine nerd than we are, however (and really, who isn’t?) you might want to check it out. It’s at 7pm and it’s free! [Gordon’s Fine Wine & Culinary Center]
•The Hello Stiletto Shoe Club and Hampshire House team up with the Accelerated Cure Project to present the Glow and Behold Ball at 8pm. It basically sounds like the best ever excuse to get dressed up, dance and eat a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres. Tickets, which cost $65, may be purchased online. [Accelerated Cure Project]

•Love the brunch at the Oak Room? Want to learn how to make it for yourself? Then check out this week’s installment of the Celebrity Chef series at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, which will feature Arwi Odense, the Oak Room’s chef. As always, the fun starts at 1pm, and your $60 reservation may be made online. [Boston Center for Adult Education]
•The French Library hosts Roland Mesnier, White House Pastry Chef, for a book signing and reception (complete with delicious desserts, naturally). Mesnier has been in the White House for a whopping 25 years, so we’re betting he has some pretty excellent stories. The event starts at 2pm, and tickets, which cost $35 for members and $45 for the general public, may be reserved by calling (617) 912-0400. [The French Library of Boston]
