Three great things about the wine and cheese tasting happening at the Public Market House Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

There will be food.

There will be alcohol.

They'll both be free.

When you finally get the pile in your in box down to a manageable level - or when your co-worker gets distracted for long enough for you to pile them into his in box instead - head over to Monument Square to sip and nibble courtesy of Maine Beer and Beverage Co. (offering wines from New Zealand and South Africa), K. Horton Specialty Foods (providing the cheese) and Big Sky Bakery (providing the bread).

What better plans could you possibly have on a Thursday?
