DOUBLE SHOT WINE DINNER: Justin Basel of Basel Cellars and Josh McDaniels of Sweet Valley Wines team up for a five-course wine dinner at 6 p.m. Friday, March 4 inside El Gaucho (2119 Pacific Ave., Tacoma). The cost is $80 per person. Reserve your spot at 253.272.1510.

FAT TUESDAY: Morso wine bar (9014 Peacock Hill Ave., Gig Harbor) celebrates Fat Tuesday from 4 p.m. to close March 8 with an authentic New Orleans menu featuring red beans and rice, shrimp and grits, crawfish gumbo and King Cake flown in from Haydel's Bakery in New Orleans.

LET'S DRINK SOME RUM: Hemingway drank it in doubles and Bluebeard pirated the seven seas fueled on the stuff. It's rum, and it's on a comeback in the South Sound, thanks to Stonegate Pizza and its huge Rum Bar. The Nosh League will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10 to taste rums, nosh and drawing raffle numbers. A representative from Martinique Distributors will lead us through the variant spellings and tastes of rum. The cost is the standard $15 a person. Flaunting your sugar plantation-style in tropical threads earns admiring glances/batted lashes. So let's flip the fan on, elevate the feet and sip the night away. You must be a Nosh League member to attend the rum tasting. To join, check out Nosh League on Facebook.
