Waiting for Bacchus

Sure, it's about nine months away, set to take place on March 21-23 in 2003. But right now you can whet your appetite for Boca Bacchanal, Boca Raton Historical Society's first annual winefest and auction to benefit children's charities in Boca Raton. The Website -- www.bocabacchanal.com -- is up and running. View details of the festivities, which will include seminars, a food-and-wine tasting at the new Centre for the Arts at Mizner Park, and a grand reception at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. But make sure you bookmark the page, because unless you're in the publishing industry, chances are you don't have an appointment book for 2003 just yet.
