Hey, Hey, Beaujolais

Some of us age gracefully, mellowing into supple silvers and golds, wearing each year as a pearl of wisdom rather than a battle scar. Unfortunately, many of us, like Beaujolais, are bright and crisp when we're young, but quickly turn to unenjoyable vinegar. All the more reason to enjoy life--and young wines--now, rather than banking on the future. Join the Symphony Orchestra of Richardson at their 2010 Beaujolais Bash, and enjoy the traditional tasting of the year's new Beaujolais, along with food, art, a silent auction and, of course, music. The bash begins at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Renaissance Hotel, 900 E. Lookout Drive in Richardson. Reservations are required and dress code is "fun party casual." Requested donations are $40 for advance reservations, $60 at the door, or $75 to enjoy VIP amenities. Call 972-234-4195 or visit richardsonsymphony.org.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
