Like most Columbia beer lovers, the ladies of Girls’ Pint Out can’t wait to get their hands on some beers from Columbia’s second post-Prohibition production brewery. They will be out at River Rat Brewery on Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m., tasting its beers and taking a special tour of the brewery facilities. Ladies, if you missed the River Rat grand opening on Monday, you should do your darnedest to get there for this event. The beer costs money, of course, but the tour is free.
Spring has most definitely sprung, and that has lots of us thinking about what to do with our yards and gardens. I know I spent far too much time with a rake in my hands this past weekend. If you’re looking for a little home improvement inspiration, you should check out the Carolina Classic Home & Garden Show this Friday through Sunday at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds. If you’re like me, though, just thinking about how much mulch you need to buy and how to repair that tricky stair on your deck gets you a little anxious. So why not enjoy the second annual Wine Walk at the show this weekend? On Friday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., participants will be able to walk around the 250 exhibits and stop for wine tastings at various stations throughout the show. It will certainly make talking about vinyl siding more enjoyable. Tickets for the Wine Walk are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate. You can find out more about the schedule and exhibitors and get your advance tickets at columbiabuilders.com.
Snake Charmer Shiraz
One of my favorite wineries over the past couple years has been Australian winery Vinaceous. If you’ve been in a wine store recently, I’m sure you’ve noticed their evocative carnival-poster-style labels. It certainly made the brand stand out to me, and first led me to its Snake Charmer Shiraz. This Tuesday, March 18, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Gervais & Vine, you can taste six of their wonderful wines, enjoy some light tapas, and meet Vinaceous owner Nick Stacy. To attend, you must RSVP either by calling Gervais & Vine at 799-8483 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is $15 per person.
