Tonight: Wine and ale at the Lobby, Lala's and Le Central

Lovers of beer and wine might find it difficult to choose between tonight's events, so choose wisely:

Another light option takes place at Lala's Wine Bar + Pizzeria, 410 East 7th Avenue, when the restaurant steps outside the wine box with Summer Apps and Ales -- house-made apps paired with uncommon beers. It runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and costs $20; call 303-861-9463 or visit

And you'll find a full meal at Le Central, 112 East Eighth Avenue, which is offering a wine dinner featuring white, rose and Colorado bounties paired with a five-course meal. Admission is $35, and reservations are required; the dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. Call 303-863-8094 or visit
