Don't forget there's more than one holiday going on right now. Friday, Dec. 18, is the last night of Hanukkah, so don't miss this opportunity to get a festive gift for your Jewish friends. Nashville Wine and Spirits is offering 15 percent off of any one bottle of kosher wine through Saturday, Dec. 19. They have a great selection of kosher wines, including vintages from Chile, Israel and Italy, so you're not limited to just Manischewitz.
Tell them you saw the details of the discount here on Bites, and I'll bet they let you buy it without the coupon they sent me. Nashville Wine & Spirits, 4556 Harding Road, 292-2676
If you're looking for a more traditional Christmas drink, drop by F. Scott's in Green Hills and sidle up to the bartender and whisper their current Speakeasy term, "It's a Wonderful Life," for a special discount on F. Scott's homemade eggnog, with bourbon and brandy.
For those who consider eggnog to be a waste of good bourbon, you might want to head over to at Corrieri's Formaggeria 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19, for their last bourbon tasting of the year. Here's what they've got lined up:
Four Roses 80 Blended - $18.99

Four Roses Single Barrel - $33.49
Four Roses Mariage - $71.99
Pritchard's Double Barrel - $42.99
Jefferson Reserve Small Batch - $59.99
Brad from Vinea wine store next store will be on hand to answer questions, along with special guests Phil Pritchard, master distiller from Pritchard's Distillery, and Dan Gardner, manager for Four Roses Bourbon.
Just show your tasting ticket at Vinea next store to get 10 percent off on all the tasting bourbons. For this particular tasting, Corrieri's will be charging $10 per person.
