The weather is warming up (in theory anyway), and two Newport hotels are running a couple of events to move things along. The Chanler at Cliff Walk continues its tasting series March 23, one where liquor and wine experts from around the world spend a Sunday afternoon eating, drinking and teaching. The next is a “Taste of Southeastern New England,” from 1-4 p.m. where participants, for $95 each, get eight courses with wine pairings from Southeastern New England wineries and cuisine from The Chanler’s Spiced Pear Executive Chef Thomas Duffy. For reservations and info, visit www.thechanler.com or call 401-847-1300.

Over at Vanderbilt Grace, a 33-room restored mansion, they’re hosting an Easter egg hunt and brunch April 20. The hunt will be in the hotel’s garden, followed by a spring-inspired brunch buffet on the terrace, with items like strawberry ricotta muffins, blueberry-stuffed French toast with maple pecan sauce, and local crab cake with poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Cost is $65 per person. Check if out at www.gracehotels.com/vanderbilt or call 401-846-6200.
