Like peanut butter and jelly, soup and crackers, and of course, Blair and Serena, wine and cheese have been bosom buddies for some time. At Vinalia's Wine & Cheese Wednesdays, starting at 6 p.m., the restaurant offers complimentary samples from the bar's wine list. Throw in some cheese and fruit, and ta-da! — you've just classed up another night out on the town. And for someone who doesn't know a Merlot from a glass of Yellow Tail (like me), there's be a professional wine connoisseur on hand to present the wines and offer info on region, flavors, and pairing recommendations. Best of all, there's no admission fee. Check the website for all the details.
