It’s going to be pretty chilly outside this weekend, but there are some fun events that are worth bundling up and heading outside.

Wine Tasting for the Holidays

If you need help finding the perfect wine to bring to Thanksgiving or holiday dinner, this is the event for you.

The event is Saturday from 4 p.m. to 6p.m. and prices range from $35-$40.

Holy Mole
