Why Don't You Just Wine About It?

There's no rule that says you cannot drink wine any way you like. The oenologic police will not show up at your door on a Tuesday evening and arrest you for drinking cheap red from a Mason jar. Wine should be approachable and enjoyable, not intimidating, and after an evening with world-renowned sommelier Charlie Arturaola, you will feel intimidated no longer. The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale and Nova Southeastern University are hosting Arturaola as part of their "Art of Wine and Food Series." Arturaola will take part in a question-and-answer session with resident wine educator Stephanie Miskew after a screening of the independent film El Camino del Vino. Learn about where wine comes from, how it is made, and what the hell a bouquet is from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday. The museum is located at 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Admission is $50, and reservations are required. Call 954-262-0249, email gvilone@moafl.org, or visit moafl.org.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
