Local folks love to add lowbrow flourishes to high-class functions — it keeps us grounded and reminds us of our hoosier heritage. This type of synergy may reach perfection with tonight's Hot Wings & Wine Tasting
, which unites two ends of the culinary spectrum. You can impress your friends with comments like, "Don't those sparkly finishing notes of the Riesling pair nicely with the tongue-blistering fury of these hot wings?" Just try to keep your smudgy, Buffalo-sauce-stained fingerprints off of the nice wine glasses. The networking event is a fundraiser for the National Hospice Partnership Foundation, which assists families dealing with terminal illness by offering home-health alternatives. The fundraiser takes place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Cabanne House in Forest Park (5300 Lindell Boulevard). Admission is $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and reservations can be made online at www.nhpfdn.org
. For more information call 314-815-3410.
