Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
The Passover seder involves drinking four cups of wine, and yeah, you could go the bargain basement route and pick up a couple of bottles of Manischewitz at the corner store, but don't you (and Elijah) deserve better? Problem is, most of the really nice bottles you'll find in the city's better wine shops aren't certified kosher, so they're not suitable. With a couple weeks to go before Passover, the Jewish Study Center is offering a solution at the Sixth and I Synagogue Thursday night: a sampling of kosher red, white and dessert wines from Israel. Instructor Jay Caplan plans to offer some wine tasting basics, including what makes a wine kosher and why you should care about different vintages. It sounds like an interesting chance to try some hard-to-sample producers, and besides, you know that once the wine starts flowing, the whole event could turn into a JDate live chatroom. You may even wind up with a seder date. Class runs from 7 to 9, and tickets are $30, or $25 for members. Sign up on jewishstudycenter.org.
This is one of the events featured in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, where you'll also find information about a free show by R&B singer Tamia, a late night with DJ Armin Van Buuren, and concerts by Swedish indie-electro duo Lo-Fi-Fnk, Canadrian rockers Ladyhawk and the uncategorizable Dionne Farris.
