Spring spronged all over the place and allergies are in high gear again. Will a lot of alcohol help relieve these watery eyes, itchy ears and non-stop sneezing? I’m not a doctor, but yes. Yes it will. So strap in and call your designated driver, because it’s an extra-boozy edition of Eat This Calendar!
As always, you can stay current with upcoming events on our events page right here.
It’s the battle we’ve all been waiting for. France, home to escargot and berets, vs. California, where everybody is a struggling actor. Join the party people from Thirst Wine Merchants at V2 for Wine for the People, 5:30-7:30 p.m. See which wines you prefer while tasting food from the culinary savants at Vast. Tickets are $35 and available here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wine-for-the-people-france-vs-california-tickets-43001293025?aff=efbeventtix
Starting at 6 p.m., glass lovers will descend upon The Root to tip pints of Texas-based Rahr & Sons brews and walk away with branded glassware. The Root, the little craft beer bar that could, will have Iron Thistle, Adios Pantalones and Paleta de Mango on tap.
It’s also a stop on the Prost Y’all Crawl. Hit up The Root for a punch card and get ready to visit a few more establishments over the next couple of weeks. Get nine or more punches on your card and you can get a Prost Y’all Crawl T-shirt at Oak & Ore during the March 30 wrap party. Get all 12 punches and you’ll be entered into a Rahr & Sons swag drawing.
Nothing makes reading better than wine, so Commonplace Books and Thirst Wine Merchants are teaming up for a book signing of “The New Wine Rules” by author Jon Bonné.

Thirst reps will pour samples of some wines featured in the book.
The Boozy, Bluesy Brunch returns to Stella from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Sunday. The Judge & The Jury will bring the music. Stella will serve up your favorite brunch dishes, wines and set out an incredible Bloody Mary bar.
Say what you will about John Elkins: he’s tall, he smells nice, he can solve a Rubik’s cube with one hand while brewing beer with the other. Most of those are true. Best of all, he makes some really great beer and you can try them alongside some excellent food at McNellie’s Elk Valley Beer Dinner, 7-10 p.m. Tuesday. You get four courses paired with four Elk Valley beers for $45. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space.
