The ability to pair wine with a meal is an important skill, much like pairing a left shoe with a right or a birth certificate with its baby. Avoid mismatching misfortunes with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a wine and food pairing class for two people from Bottled Grapes (a $70 value). Classes run on Mondays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Beijo de Chocolat, and on Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Splice Kitchen.

Bottled Grapes owner Krunch Kretschmar, one of 24 people worldwide to be recognized as an International Grand Confrerie Sommelier, instructs students in a two-hour seminar that teaches neophyte gourmands how to properly pair food with wine. A globetrotting grape enthusiast, Krunch brings more than a decade of pairing experience to his fun and educational sessions, which include wine samples and a meal. Grab a date or ask them nicely and learn to savor the bitter tannins of an aged merlot, the crisp fruitiness of a chilled riesling, and the compact portability of a fine boxed zinfandel. With a newfound wine connoisseur's vocabulary and palate, students will master the art of using flavor profiles to make informed pairing decisions. Upon completion, tipplers won’t once again make the mistake of pairing a rare 1984 oak-aged cabernet sauvignon with a pizza Lunchable when the occasion calls for turkey and cheddar.

Fun, interesting, laid-back evening. Krunch, you are totally cool.

Though it was hard to find availability in one of the classes, once we got in, I enjoyed the event. The crowd was friendly, the food was unpretentious but tasty, and the venue - Dank Haus in Lincoln Square - was a hidden gem in the city. Overall a nice date night for my husband and me.
