Tuesday, March 16: My favorite cat rescue organization, Forgotten Cats, is celebrating its sixth anniversary Tuesday with a blarney-themed St. Catrick’s Day hootenanny. (Sadly, St. Catrick’s Day didn’t fall on a Caturday this year.)

Join Forgotten Cats at Public House Restaurant in Wilmington beginning at 5 p.m. sharp for drink specials and free hors d’oeuvres. A $10 tax deductible donation is suggested at the door (or $7 with unopened kitty food or toys).


Wednesday, March 17: Fresh Thymes Café, Wilmington’s popular lunch spot for all things local, seasonal and organic, is hosting a holiday dinner Wednesday in honor of Ireland’s patron saint.

The second annual St. Patrick’s Feast is a four-course dinner filled out with potato-leek soup, corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and much more. All yours at the tiny price of $38 a head. Call the café at 656-2026 to reserve your spot.


Wednesday, March 17: Union City Grille and Frank’s Union Wine Mart are teaming up for another in their popular series of Grapes and Cultures dinners Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Join the whole lot of them, including entertainer Sean Riley as Frank Sinatra, at Union City Grille Wednesday for sampling of more than 40 wines, 15 cheeses, traditional antipasti, live music and lots of other goodies.

Click your way over here to reserve your place (only $24 per person).


Thursday, March 18: New Digs: Ah yes, finally a restaurant that combines the smooth, goes-down-easy accessibility of cheesecake with the bland, industrial qualities of a factory.

I keed, I keed. I’m speaking of course of the Cheesecake Factory, the popular chain restaurant that happens to be opening up shop in our very own Christiana Mall (132 Christiana Mall, Newark, 454-9444).

The grand opening is Thursday, so head over for some good, family-style cuisine and, like, 30 varieties of cheesecake.
