Piedmont is a popular Italian region for local wine dinners this season, and that’s a good thing—the wine there is terrific. All the more reason to ponder Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante’s wine dinner on Dec. 13, starting at 6:30 p.m. It’s a four-course meal with winemaker Batasiolo pairing each course. Cost is $95 per person, excluding tax/gratuity.

This is a holiday gift all wrapped up in a nice cocktail glass when you buy a brunch entrée. Henry’s in Delray Beach just started a $5 bottomless mimosa (pictured) or bellini deal that will last the rest of the season.
