4. Wine Tasting and Bottle Repurposing @ Practical Art If Pinterest hasn't made your crafts-to-do list a mountain of under achievement, maybe a little wine will loosen up those creative juices. Tonight Practical Art hosts it's Fourth Friday swirl.sniff.sip wine tasting in conjunction with a class on morphing all those old vino bottles into vases and votives.

Bring along an empty, washed out bottle to the free event, starting at 7 p.m. See details here.

3. The Ro2 Lot: Neighborhood Mural Project It's no secret that we have a soft spot for murals (in fact, we recently listed our favorite street art) and on Saturday fellow fans can get their hands dirty with some fresh paint on Roosevelt Row from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Break out the brushes to help in creating a new public work of art at the Northeast corner of Second and Roosevelt streets alongside local artists including Colton Brock, Lalo Cota, Thomas "Breeze" Marcus, and Pablo Luna. The event is open to the public, and it's free to participate. See more here.
