Weekend Wine Tastings!

Before I write about your local wine tastings, I'd like to tell you something you already know:
Haiti Needs More Of Your Help
There's an "SOS" Concert and Telethon for Haiti at the American Airlines Arena going on tonight (Friday February 5th) from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Contribute in any way you can to this cause.
