Shopping is fun. Drinking is also fun. Any event that brings these two activities together is a match made in heaven. The Grapevine Wine Walk, a monthly wine tasting held in Over-the-Rhine, must have a hotline to God. This month’s event will be held in OTR’s Gateway Quarter, centered on the corner of 12th and Vine streets. Get some holiday shopping done at 4U Urban Fashion Boutique, Joseph Williams Home, MiCA 12/v and Switch. If the December night gets a little too cold for comfort, let the wine provide some artificial — but no less satisfying — body heat. Each merchant will feature a special wine to fit the month’s unique theme. In addition to the shopping and wine, holiday treats and choral music will be provided to keep the party going. This month’s Wine Walk will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday.
