Award-winning Sacramento chef Evan Elsberry loves to host themed wine dinners. They’re his way of socializing, since he “lives at the restaurant,” he says. He matches ethnic cuisines with the appropriate wines, and there are always surprises. In past months, he sold out his Italian, French, Spanish, German and cheese-centric dinners.

Now he’s preparing a “Pick Your Poison” dinner, with your choice of wine or beer to go with the food. It will start at 6 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. March 17, for $75 per person. Reservations are at (916) 452-3896. The previous wine dinners filled up fast, so...

Evan’s Kitchen is at 855 57th St., Sacramento, in the Antiques Mall; www.chefevan.com.
