Thursday nights are wine nights when you’re wiling the evening away at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Sponsored by a rotating cast of local businesses (Bacaro, the Corkscrew, Friar Tuck, jim gould and Sun Singer) who know a thing or two about top-quality inebriants, the “Krannert Uncorked” tastings offer the opportunity to spend your happy hour sampling new wines and taking in some live music.

Tonight’s featured wines, selected and supplied by Sun Singer, all come from South Africa: a 2006 Bon Cap “The Ruins” white; a 2005 Bon Cap Pinotage; and a 2006 Bon Cap “The Ruins Red.” Sips are free and glasses are available at a discounted price.

Local jazz ensemble, the Darden Purcell Quartet, will provide the music. The event kicks off at 5 p.m. in the lobby of the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, 500 S. Goodwin Avenue on the University of Illinois campus.
