La Rana Rossa Hosting Wine Night; Movie Night; Santa, Too!

La Rana Rossa is having a very busy December, as the Green Street restaurant is holding a wine night with Blanchards Wine & Spirits, hosting a movie night of a beloved holiday classic, and Santa will also be visiting later in the month. On Thursday, Dec. 8th at 7 pm, La Rana Rossa is hosting its second wine tasting featuring John Paul Kaminga of Blanchards Wine & Spirits. For $30 guests will enjoy three wines, salad and their choice of pizza from the evening’s menu. After La Rana Rossa received its wine and beer license in September, Brad Brown, chef/owner, of La Rana Rossa and the Blue Frog Bakery, wanted to start hosting monthly wine dinners.

‘Forest Hills Fine Wine’ Aims to Replace Shuttered Convenience Store

A Hyde Park Avenue space that most recently housed a convenience store where you could get beer, wine and booze along with your salty snacks could morph into "Forest Hills Fine Wine." The proposal for 18-24 Hyde Park Ave. is among the items on tap at Tuesday's meeting of the JP Neighborhood Council's Public Service Committee. The meeting is at 7 p.m. in the community room at the E-13 police station at 3347 Washington St. Formerly "Forest Hills Mart," the location is currently empty, aside from old shelving.
