Weekend Roundup

Tonight we get our first on the field look at the Black & Gold, but even if pre-season NFL football doesn't make your weekend fun list, there are still plenty of ways to fill up your calendar.

Tonight from 5:00 till 6:00, Le Meritage will host its free "Summer of Wine Forum" where Sommelier Kevin Durand leads an educational and interactive tasting of wines. This week's theme: Off the Wall Whites.

Tomorrow the French Quarter fun continues with the 10th Annual Dirty Linen Night when the galleries and shops along Royal Street open up their doors for both shopping and general revelry. When the clock strikes 10:00, head on over to the official Dirty Linen Night After Party at the Royal House, where you can taste the official Dirty Linen Night martini, the competition for which was judged by Rene, the arbiter of all things dirty.

Finally, on Sunday, Swirl Wine Bar & Market and A Mano partner up to present "Un Assigio di Campagnia", a walk around tasting featuring 15 different bubblies, whites, reds and roses paired with dishes from the Campagna region in Southern Italy. All wines can be special ordered at the end of the event at a discounted price. The price is $50 all inclusive and prepayment is required to book your spot. Call 504-0635 for reservations.

Have a good weekend.
