Wine — Film — Music — Food — A&E

Don Quixote promises love, laughs – and a windmill
When the Colorado Ballet performs Don Quixote, opening Oct. 16 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, you can bet on plenty of humor and romance.
By Maria Cote

Dave on film: Couples Retreat should be voted off the island
You go to a resort with visions of jet skis and palm trees, just to find that you have to attend obligatory relationship-building activities. Sound funny? Well, it's not. By Dave Taylor

If it tastes good – pair it
I can't help but roll my eyes at some wine aficionados who tsk-tsk at what foods to pair with what wines. I'd really just love to run into one or two of them out on the playground. By Cathie Beck—The Wine Wench

A&E best bets: Genghis, Miss Saigon, Poe and plenty of pumpkins
You’ve got everything from museums to musicals to marathons on this weekend’s jam-packed agenda. By Lisa Ryckman
