Tonight: Free Wine Tasting at Whole Foods
If your happy hour plans for tonight include lame coworkers or a douchey bar in Uptown, you need to reconsider the definition of happy hour. If you want a truly happy hour, then go to the Whole Foods in Highland Park (4100 Lomo Alto) tonight for a free Francis Ford Coppola wine tasting. It's not all about complimentary Claret, because the evening is also a celebration of the film Somewhere, directed by Sophia Coppola, Oscar-nominated director and daughter of Francis Ford Coppola. The film opens in select theaters on Friday, including The Magnolia Theatre, and you can win tickets to see the movie during tonight's tasting. The first glasses will be poured at 5:30 p.m., so you've got plenty of time to drink and do some buzzed grocery shopping afterward.
