10/19: Wild Things and Wine



    Screening Mammography: What's Your Excuse?
    Warner Bros. Pictures
    Didn't want to fight the weekend movie crowds? Tonight may be the perfect night to see "Where the Wild Things Are."

    DO THEY PLAY "WE ARE FAMILY"?:  They're one of the most popular wedding bands in the state, but you don't need a tux or a bridesmaid's dress to see The Cartells tonight.  They are playing Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den.  The group boasts the ability to adapt any style, from Toni Braxton to Tony Bennett.  It's a free 21+ show.  8pm.

    WHAT FOLIAGE MIGHT TASTE LIKE:  Head to Bellini's tonight in South Windsor for their "Flavors of Autumn Wine Dinner."  The four course meal includes pan-seared scallops, almond and chestnut bisque, braised pork belly and chocolate semi fredo.  Of course what would a self-respecting wine dinner be without wine?  Each course was carefully crafted to be paired with wines.  Michael Petrizzo from Vias Imports will be your host for the evening.  It's $49.50 per person, and reservations are required (call 860-432-3461).  6:30pm.

    WILD THINGS:  Tonight may be the perfect night to run to your local multiplex, and catch "Where the Wild Things Are."  It may be a kids movie, but hey, we're all kids at heart (and who hasn't read the book?).  It's playing across the state, on regular screens and the uber-screens, IMAX.  By all accounts, it's a beautifully shot movie, and should look great on the big screen (we have a slide-show of images from the film).  And going to a show on a school night will probably help you avoid all those wild and crazy kids!
