An entire class of shopping has been built on the concept of affordable luxury, and now your stomach has the same opportunity. Avenues Bistro (338 West 63rd Street) has two new deals: a $5.99 breakfast and lunch menu on Saturday, and a $25 Surf and Turf dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. Reservations are recommended for the Surf and Turf, which is a filet mignon with your choice of lobster tail, crab legs, or lobster and crab cake. Grab a late dinner - wine is 50 percent off after 8:30 p.m.
Candy corn and merlot? Twizzlers and pinot grigio? End the debate in your house over what Halloween candy goes with what wine. Jowler Creek Vineyard & Winery (16905 Jowler Creek Road, in Platte City, Missouri) will be helping people pair candy with wines during tasting sessions offered Saturday and Sunday from 11 am. to 5 p.m. The tasting is $5 per person.
You can lend a hand and your back to area farms for the 2012 Food Day Crop Mob tomorrow. Volunteers will get together at 15 urban farms and gardens around the city tomorrow from 9 a.m. to noon to help with fall farm chores in an effort led by Cultivate KC.
