.‘Clue’ in the Cue


Taste of Sonoma

The Taste of Sonoma—a day that promises a deep dive into the region’s vinous treasures, hosted at the Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens—features over 100 wineries, complimentary food trucks and themed lounges (spanning everything from a Cadillac Luxury Automotive Lounge to GlassTats—temporary tattoos for a wine glass… Gotta love wine country). Among the highlights is the Bohemian’s fave sommelier, Christopher Sawyer, who will lead one of several add-on “Insider Wine Tours,” guiding attendees through a 30-minute tasting journey, “From Wind to Wine in Petaluma Gap.” The Taste of Sonoma, organized by Sonoma County Vintners, provides a comprehensive experience of the county’s diverse wine offerings. With access to over 60 varietals and 19 unique growing areas, the event showcases the craftsmanship of local winemakers. The event commences on Saturday, June 22, at Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens, 5007 Fulton Rd., Fulton. For information and tickets, visit tasteofsonoma.com.

Mill Valley

Get a ‘Clue’

Complementing its Adult Summer Reading program, themed “The Game is Afoot,” the Mill Valley Public Library adds a little more mystery for seasoned sleuths and the casually curious alike with a series of “fully interactive” movie screenings, starting with the 1985 hit, Clue, inspired by the original Parker Brothers board game. “Don your best Mrs. Peacock or Colonel Mustard costume, grab a bag of goodies from our ‘concession stand’ and enjoy an evening of madness and murder,” entices the library. ‘Clue’ plays at 6pm, Tuesday, June 25, at the Mill Valley Public Library, 375 Throckmorton Ave. Reserve a seat at millvalleylibrary.org/293/Attend.


Radio Days

The Marin Amateur Radio Society (MARS) will demonstrate how radio operators become a lifeline, connecting communities and relaying vital information, during the nationwide Field Day competition beginning at 11am, both Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23, at Stafford Lake Park, 3549 Novato Blvd., Novato. “Ham radio functions completely independently of the internet and landline phone systems, and a station can be set up almost anywhere in minutes,” says Steve Toquinto of MARS. Founded in 1933, MARS operates in coordination with the Marin County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) to provide independent radio communications during emergencies. Experienced operators will demonstrate how this network springs to life during Bay Area disasters. The event is sponsored by the National Association for Amateur Radio.
