Candler Park (Wine?)Market
Candler Park Supermarket, the neighborhood grocery affectionately known as Mr. Lee's, shelters a surprisingly extensive wine selection. This month, the market teams up with some outstanding restaurants for a series of wine dinners. The first dinner (at Sotto Sotto) is booked solid, but space is still available for the following: Tiburon Grille on Oct. 16 with French Burgundy Wines out of This World; Harvest on Oct. 18 featuring California Wines to Die For; and the Flying Biscuit Cafe (Candler Park) on Oct. 22 featuring Esoteric California Wines. Dinners include a five-course meal with a wine paired to each course. $65 per person. For more info or to make a reservation, contact James Lee at Candler Park Supermarket, 404-373-9787.

Putting the vin in Vinings Inn
Savor the flavor at the charming Vinings Inn, where every Monday is flight night. Enjoy three wines for $15 with food. To start, allow me to recommend the curly spinach with Vermont goat cheese, toasted pine nuts, red onions and sun-dried tomatoes in a black currant vinaigrette. The Old Vinings Inn, 3011 Places Mill Road. 770-438-2282.

Eno, meenie, minie moe
