WINE TIME: So you've made it half-way through the work week. How about celebrating with dinner and a nice glass of wine or two. Head to Barcelona in New Haven for their "Wine Down Wednesdays". The Temple Street restaurant offers a $29 price fixe menu, which includes a choice of Churrasco Steak or Chicken Pimientos. Or try any four tapas, ensaladas and desserts. You can also get great deals on wine. It starts tonight at 5 p.m.
BLUE BACK BLUES: Or if you're in the mood for a little music, head to Blue Back Square in West Hartford for the Wednesday night music series. Tonight the Colbys play the Square. The R&B/jazz party band is led by Grammy and Emmy Award winner John Colby. For what did he win his awards you ask? He's been the musical director for ESPN's ESPY awards, and for the NASCAR awards as well. The Colbys will cover everything from Aretha Franklin and B.B. King, to Van Morrison and The Commodores. Enjoy the music from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
