THU 8/4 For many high school students, the transition from sheltered teen to frat-ready adult usually involves the switch from home-cooked meals and freshly scented laundry to dining on cold cereal and wearing boxers so stiff they could stand up and walk to class themselves. But for students exhibiting artwork at the Norton Museum of Art (1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach), their progression offers a little more promise. In "Mindscapes: Seeing Our Lives in Transition," the 2005 summer interns display works reflecting the landscapes and personal memories that inspired them to put down the remote control and pick up a paintbrush.
FRI 8/5 Watch out for those folks down at Las Olas Gourmet and Wine (111 SE Eighth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). They're trying to put the whole world in a food coma. For example, when we order lunch -- like Italian Caprese sandwiches or goat cheese and cranberry salads -- they deliver it to our office in, like, 90 seconds. The one time they messed up our order, they apologized in the form of free cheesecake. Now they're really out to get us, as they present a tasting of fine wines -- specifically, California Cabernets. Can't make it? They'll deliver bottles of wine or any of the international beers they sell (Belgian, Russian, German, Italian, Japanese...). Today's winetasting lasts from 6 to 9 p.m. and costs $10.
