SPOOKY SIPS: Wine drinking, with a touch of the weird thrown in, doesn't happen nearly enough. If you're sipping a chardonnay, chances are you're on some pretty porch staring at, like, a begonia. Which is great. But sometimes you want a bit of seasonal scare with your shiraz, especially the night before Halloween, especially when that night falls on a Saturday. Which it is doing in 2010.
LORIMAR LARK: The Lorimar Winery is throwing a Halloween Party on Oct. 30, and if a party in a winery setting makes you put index finger to chin and wonder if vino will be part of the event, wonder no more. There will be bites (make of the word "bites" what you will; there IS a picture of a ravenous vampire on the winery's site). And entertainment. And costume-wearing, on your part. If you like the winery scene, and Halloween, and having been waiting for a match-up, read on, fine wine/fright night lover. Read on.
