Happy holidays, Wino fans. There's not a lot going on this week with regards to drinking in public, but we imagine that you'll enjoy plenty of merriment in front of your own yule log. But all is not lost for those of you seeking communal wine tasting activities.

Vinea in 12South is holding their final Saturday tasting of the year this weekend from 3 to 5 p.m. They'll be pouring Champagne and port (most of the major houses will be represented: Taylor, Fonseca, Croft, Nova). They didn't really mention where the tasting will be in their email, but knowing our arcane state liquor laws, it won't be in the wine store. That means probably either at neighbors Mafiaoza's or Corrieri's Formaggeria. (Which are both dastardly venues to attempt to spell. Thanks a lot, Vinea.) In the spirit of holiday charity, I'll forgive them and maybe even drop by for a snort.

While it's not exactly a wine tasting, there will be wine and beer and Boozeballs available at tonight's third Night Market at the Nashville Farmers' Market. Finally giving in to the weather, they have moved all the vendors inside and some of the restaurants in the Market House will be staying open late for your dining pleasure. The event runs from 6 until 8 p.m.

I can personally attest to the deliciousness of the Boozeballs from Fleur de Lis, a spiked version of their New Orleans-style Snow Balls. Pick your favorite flavor and then pick your poison. Then pick your favorite taxi company for a ride home.
