Port Tasting Seminar

6:30-8 p.m. at Randolph Wine Cellars; free

If you’ve always been curious about port, but too bashful (or broke) to try it out, stop by this West Loop wine shop to taste a number of varieties for free. In keeping with the demystification of the drink, this informal seminar does not require you to show up on time.
