Have you noticed in past few mornings that when you step outside, you’re not hit in the face with a blast of hot steam? Yes, I know you are by lunchtime, but it sure is nice to be teased by the promise of fall.

Here in Baton Rouge, fall means football and parties. On Friday, the Baton Rouge Irish Club invites you to come sample a plethora of wines and good eats at its annual wine tasting. The fun starts at 7 p.m. at the Celtic Media Center. Hope to see you there!
