Free Wine Tasting
5-7pm at CoolVines (Grove St & Powerhouse locations)
There was a (some may say, dark) time in the wine world when many people only considered the biggest, boldest wines to be of high quality. Luckily, that myth has been dispelled and the rise of fresh, juicy wines is in full swing. A style that has been popularized by the carbonic maceration of Beaujolais has spread its approachable arms to every corner of the planet. This week, we'll be sampling some of the freshest freshies we have on the shelves.

“Among Friends: Cinematic Portraits of Mekas” Screening
3-5pm at Man Contemporary
Jonas Mekas has always been known as a filmmaker making sketches, notes and portraits. In the 2000s, he started to exhibit photographic blowups of frames from his 16mm films presenting portraits of his friends cinematically imprinted in his life.
Pretty rarely, however, one can see narrative and non-narrative film portraits of Jonas Mekas made by other filmmakers throughout the 20th century. In this first screening we present a few famous portraits of Mekas done by his friends.
After the screening, the discussion on the films and the importance of portrait for the American Avant-Garde cinema will follow. Some portraits Mekas made of his friends will be exhibited at the Mekas’ Studio and presented by Sebastian Mekas.
