* In celebration of Spirit World’s 3-year anniversary under new ownership, the longstanding wine and spirits store is launching a new Scotch Lovers Club, with the initial meeting Friday, Feb. 11, 5-8 p.m. at the store, located at 75th and Pacific. The single malt tasting event will be led by Spirit World’s own Scotch expert, Devin Coyle, with special guest Scotch expert Monique Huston, formerly of the Dundee Dell. It’ll cost you $15 to get in, but you’ll get $5 back toward the purchase of any of the featured scotches. Membership is free, and comes with benefits like a discount program, discounted prices for future tastings and advance notice of hard-to-find and limited release scotches. Go to spiritworldwine.com to learn more or call 391.8680 to sign up. * Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and if you haven’t made reservations, now’s the time. Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are two of the busiest for restaurants. Not only does that mean it’ll be hard to score a reservation, but if you do, know that the restaurant you’re at will likely be operating at full capacity: completely full with the kitchen working harder than Courtney Love’s lawyers to stay on top of orders. It’ll also mean that you might not get the fawning, personalized attention you’re expecting. It’s a special night for everyone, not just you. Adjust your expectations accordingly.
