The place for cheap pizza and wine on Wednesdays? Woodinville, as it turns out.

For the calendar: Tini Bigs has introduced a series of cocktail classes called Sunday School. Held on Sunday afternoons, logically enough, the classes cost $35 and include appetizers and drinks. We just missed a tequila lesson last Sunday, but here’s what is coming up: On July 31 the bar will be hosting a Tiki tutorial, and on August 28 it’s market-fresh cocktails. Call Tini Bigs for details and to reserve.

Also: Coa in Maple Leaf is now selling tickets to July tequila tastings, the first one is on July 7 and will be taught by Eric Lorenz—an agave expert from Vancouver, BC. It’s $40 for the tasting plus snacks.

Now onto events for the next week or so:

Between noon and 2pm on Tuesday, June 28, the Dry Soda Tasting Tour stops at 1st Avenue and Stewart. There, someone will make you a float with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and of course Dry Soda. And here you were going to have salad for lunch.

Super Deli Mart in West Seattle is doing a wine tasting on Tuesday the 28th, pouring 10 varieties from Woodinville-based Novelty Hill/ Januik from 6 to 8pm.

Currently on Wednesdays, Columbia Winery is offering half off flat-bread pizza and wine by the glass from 5 to 7pm. This is kind of weird, since neighbor Novelty Hill (the one doing the Super Deli tasting) offers special flat-bread pizza and wine deals every Wednesday too. A side-by-side comparison seems to be in order.

Smith, purveyors of poutine, that famous Canadian fat-bomb of deliciousness, celebrates Canada Day on Friday, July 1. The 15th Ave E Bar suggests you wash down all that gravy-laden goodness with a Canadian brew. Molson, Labatt Blue, and Kokanee will all be on offer.
