    So how dangerous could stamp collecting be? Head to Theatreworks tonight to find out.

    SERVED UP: Come for the tennis, stay for the food and wine.  At least that's how the Pilot Pen tennis tournament is selling it.  Besides some of the best tennis players in the world, The Pilot Pen is showcasing some of New Haven's best cuisine.  They're hosting the New Haven Food & Wine Festival today.  It features some of the area's most eclectic and international restaurants, award-winning wines from Australia's Wolf Blass wines, and guests will have a chance to meet Jacques Pepin.  It's $105 per person (which includes a box seat for the day's tennis).  12-2 P.M. & 5-7:30 P.M.

    MAN AT WORK:  Best known as a member of the '80s supergroup Men At Work, (okay, supergroup may be a bit strong) Colin Hay is bringing his talents to Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den.  Since going out on his own, Hay has made a successful solo career with a number of albums to his credit, TV appearances, and even his own record label.  Tonight's show is free, but show up early since seating is limited.  8PM.

    FIGHTING PHILATELISTS:  Enter the rough and tumble world of stamp collecting!  In Mauritius playing now at TheaterWorks in Hartford, a pair of sisters are locked in a battle of wills over their recently deceased mother's book of stamps.  One wants to sell, the other thinks they are a priceless treasure.  Of course, things get dangerous when shifty stamp collectors get involved.  The show runs through October 4.  7:30PM.
