Some quick notes about upcoming events on this Wednesday morning...
  • De Luca Fine Wines is presenting "East Meets West" with a dinner tonight (June 18) at the Manitoba Club (194 Broadway). The four course event will feature wines from both Quails Gate Winery (BC) and Henry of Pelham Winery (Ontario). Cocktails are at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets are $99.95 and are available by calling 783-9463.
  • Mona Lisa Ristorante Italiano (1697 Corydon) is the place to be tomorrow night, as they host the "Cut for the Cure" starting at 6 p.m. There will be live music, prizes, and a special buffet dinner. But the real draw is the hair cut/head shave available for willing participants (the event is a fundraiser for the Carol Shields Memorial Breast Cancer Research Fund). And if you've ever seen Mona Lisa's owner, Joe Grande, you know that the $75 ticket price is a steal to see a guy with such long locks get his head buzzed. Two years ago, Joe had a full body shave at the event (yikes!), which raised nearly $3,000. Staff are also donating either their wage or tips for the night to the event as well. Call 488-3687 for tickets.
  • Next Tuesday (June 24), Fude Inspired Cuisine and Wine Bar (303-99 Osborne) is hosting their first annual Beer n Dine Dinner, a five-course event featuring beer and food paired by Dave Rudge, brewmaster at Half Pints Brewery. Things get underway at 7 p.m. You can check out the menu here. Tickets are a paltry $59.99 (plus taxes and gratuity) and are available by calling 284-3833.

About Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson

When he wasn't bashing on a drum kit in local punk rock bands, Ben spent the mid '90s hucking cases of wine around to pay for two English degrees. Now he's the Winnipeg Free Press wine columnist and blogger.

The extent of Ben's wine experience in the mid-90s was memories of accidentally leaving a bottle of White Zinfandel in the freezer overnight, and the ensuing mess he was left with. Between 1996 and 2005 Ben absorbed all he could about wine while working at wine shops to pay for school. Meanwhile, he was churning out papers for his BA and MA in English (from the Universities of Winnipeg and Manitoba, respectively).

Ben became the Winnipeg Free Press' weekly wine columnist in 2005, and two years later joined Wine Access magazine as a contributor, a member of their national tasting panel and a judge at the Canadian Wine Awards and International Value Wine Awards until the magazine closed up shop in 2013.

In 2013 Ben joined the Winnipeg Free Press as a copy/web editor.
