Unlike Similac Baby Formula, which is unfairly reserved for babies and experimenting teens, wine can also be consumed by adults. Separate the towerers from the toddlers with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two tickets to a two-hour wine tasting (a $10 value) at The Wine Cellar in Vestavia Hills. Tastings are every second and fourth Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. Call ahead to reserve your spot. The Wine Cellar carries a wide variety of wines ranging in price from $5.99 to $200, with new tastings taking place every other Friday night. Let an expert in all things vino take you on a magical mystery tour through a maze of fermented reds and whites. With an ever-changing roster of experts, each tasting is a chance to learn something new. On May 20, Marion Saxton of The Wine Source imparts fermented knowledge and expands palette horizons clean through the skull's occipital region. Sip, sniff, and swish your way through bottles, discovering new favorites as well as how to successfully pair wine with food. Check the event schedule to plan your tannin trip––when oak and citrus undertones will seep into your subconscious, filling your mind with dreams of cabaret dancers swilling cabernet while hailing cabs on top of a cobbled cabinet.
