Drink to Kidney Health


No one wants to go to wine-and-cheese tastings at your house anymore. Yes, it's harsh. But consider these four words: Boone's Farm and Velveeta. You served them together — to people you like. That's your wine-and-cheese legacy, your cross to bear. But chin up: Despite your epicurean foibles, you still have plenty of friends, and they'd all love to see you tonight at the Wine & Cheese Place (7435 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton). From 7 to 9 p.m., sample 25 internationally acclaimed wines at the PKD Charity Wine-Tasting. The Wine & Cheese Place is donating a portion of your $30 ticket to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation, thus furthering that foundation's incredibly important mission — to help the more than 600,000 people living with the life-threatening genetic disease. And bring extra spending cash, because the evening's silent auction also benefits the foundation. Yes, your generosity and kind spirit more than make up for that processed-cheese-and-fortified-wine debacle. Just don't do it again, 'kay? You can learn more about the PKD Foundation by visiting To make your reservation, call 314-420-7767.
