And up the street at Café Balaban (405 N. Euclid, 314-361-8085), the newest midweek shtick is called Tuesdays Tastings, featuring an extended small-plates (and relatively small-priced) menu complemented by a specially priced list of about 20 half-bottles of wine, topping out at $20 for a Mumm's Cordon Rouge or a 1998 Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir.
A bit farther west -- in Chesterfield, to be exact -- R.L. Steamers (14156 Olive Blvd., 314-439-8060) is hosting a moderately exotic wine event of its own on Monday, April 30, featuring hors d'oeuvres, three courses and dessert complemented by five wines from New Zealand. Cost is $48 a head; reservations required, Maori full-body tattooing optional.
