If it’s Tuesday, April 12, then it’s Sexy Syrah at Salty’s on Alki. You pay $45 for the right to sample syrahs from 40 Washington wineries, proceeds go to Farestart.

Meanwhile, two parties will happen at little Liberty bar this week. The first takes place Wednesday, April 13 in the back room and celebrates the new local cocktail app Seattle Cocktail Culture.

Also on Wednesday: 12th and Olive Wine Co has planned a free champagne tasting from 4 to 8pm and will offer a deal on bubbly: $19.99 for a bottle of G. Chopin & Cie champagne, usually $29.99.

Brouwer’s hosts its Blind Lion Scotch and Cigar night this Saturday, April 16. A $100 ticket buys you a cigar, access to the buffet and—ho, boy—two hours of unlimited scotch tasting. Details here.

Looking forward to next week: The Absinthe Soiree returns to the Sorrento, and Bookstore Bar hosts a single-malt scotch tasting on Monday, April 18 from 7 to 9pm. It’s $30 for “flights and bites.”
