Kazimierz World Wine Bar Tuesday, December 30

We can't think of a better way to wind down at the end of the year than by listening to live music while sipping on a glass of wine -- and conveniently, you can catch a live show at Kazimierz World Wine Bar every night of the week. On Tuesday the bar will host Sassy and the Sneak Attack (a "unky-hip-pop-rock-neo soul-r&b" band) from 9 p.m. to midnight or later and the kitchen stays open until 1:30 a.m. From 6 to 8 p.m. you can also catch the 'The Elite Eight,' a selection of 8 items available for $8 each. And by the way if you've never stepped inside this speakeasy-style spot, prepare yourself to be impressed by the wine menu book, which includes thousands of wines from all over the world.
