Bits and crumbs

Sullivan's Steakhouse starts a social hour 5-11 p.m. each Wednesday and Thursday with a new bar menu (ahi tuna nachos with avocado habanero salsa; kale and artichoke dip; sriracha-glazed shrimp), live music and $7 "signature drinks," such as the Knockout Martini (Svedka clementine vodka infused with pineapple). (Drinks are discounted all day, for those of you who worry about state happy hour laws.) 1928 South Blvd.; 704-335-8228.

July equals "31 Days of German Riesling," we are told, and Charlotte wine shop Vin Master will comply, with a tasting 6-9 p.m. July 17. 2000 South Blvd.; 704-307-5565.
