So I am bummed after missing Tori Amos’ sinful act — including a rendition of Britney Spears — at the Paramount. Actually, I don’t care but I heard it was camp-a-licious. My consolation prize:
From Oakland to Emeryville, more than a dozen urban wineries will be opening their bottles to all during the Urban Wine Experience without  all the snooty pressure or price of Napa Valley. No driving hours to slurp, sniff and sneak the sacred grape juice. On Saturday, August 8, from 2pm-5pm, the 4th Annual ‘Urban Wine Experience’ will take place. Fourteen wineries will be camped out at the Meadow at Jack London Square, pouring their wares with an opportunity to try upwards of 50 different delectable wines. Participating wineries include: Adams Point, Andrew Lane, Aubin Cellars, Dashe Cellars, Eno Wines, Irish Monkey, JC Cellars, Periscope Cellars, Prospect 772, Rosenblum Cellars, Tayerle Wines, Two Mile, Urban Legend and Urbano Cellars.
