Wine About It, Why Don’t You?

Once you hit age 21, adult socializing tends to mean one thing: drinking, and lots of it. You can linger in your average bars and pubs. Then you have your clubs, dark and mysterious places, where it’s all about imbibing and dancing until the wee hours of the morning. The next step up, it’s concerts and shows; sure, there is a strong cultural component, but we both know you’re throwing back some adult bevies during intermission. We hope. What you rarely see, however, is someone under age 30 sitting around with a glass of wine, deliberating about books. (We’re not saying it doesn’t happen; it’s just not the social norm.) The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale is working to change that around with its Read Between the Wines series. The next edition on the list for consideration is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Bring it yourself, or pick it up in the museum store. The event takes place from 6 to 7 p.m. in the café. Participation is free with museum entrance. General admission to the museum is $10 per person. The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale is located at 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-262-0204, or visit
