Let them eat cake. Then throw in some wine. 

Free cake. No, that's not a complete sentence, nor is it gratuitous use of the words simply to get attention. Pamela's Bakery in Eagle is celebrating its third anniversary, and to show a little appreciation for you Pamela's fans who've made three years a reality, Pamela's is hosting a reception with free cake and champagne this Wednesday, Dec. 9, 4-7 p.m. You'll find Pamela's at 360 S. Eagle Road in Eagle.

Also this Wednesday night from 5-7 p.m. is Boise Weekly's BW Card Member appreciation party at Idaho Botanical Garden. Your BW Card is your ticket to the heated tent at Winter Garden aGlow, where BW Card members get free food, wine and beer, a free wander through the half-million lights in the garden and waived fees on any BW Cards you buy as gifts with a minimum of $60 credit. Card members may also bring a friend and we'll waive their sign-up fee, too. For more information on the party or to get a card, call BW Office Manager Shea Sutton at 208-344-2055 for info.

Because two cool events on the same night aren't nearly enough, here's one more way you can while away a Wednesday night: Melting Pot's Bordeaux wine tasting and food pairing. But this ain't your run of the mill wine tasting. For $45 per person, you'll get a pate or cheese fondue pairing with a taste of six wines, including Barons de Rothschild, "Reserve Speciale" France, 2007; Chateau Meyney, France, 1989; Chateau Lynch-Bages, France, 1994; Chateau Cos d'Estournel, "Grand Cru," France, 1995; Chateau Gruaud Larose, "Grand Cru," France, 1989; La Mission Haut-Brion, France, 1985. Call Melting Pot for a reservation at 208-383-0900.

On Thursday, Dec. 10, you can continue on your merry wine way with Downtown Boise Association's inaugural Winter Wine Tasting, a clever new addition to Christmas in the City. Idaho Wine Commission has paired up (heh, heh) with the DBA to gather 10 Idaho wineries on the Grove Plaza from 5:30-8 p.m. Find one you like, and you can buy it by the glass. With traditional caroling and fire dancing, it's like winter's version of Alive After Five. Info at downtownboise.org.
