It’s best not to keep things bottled up. Everybody needs a little time to un-wine. Yes, we like our puns cheesy. So cheesy you might want some wine to wash it down. Here are three events that won’t let your glass go empty this week:
The national organization Wine, Women & Shoes is back at the Daniel Island Club (600 Island Park Drive) from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday to benefit Florence Crittenton, a local nonprofit that helps young mothers become self-sufficient. Women are invited to sip reds and whites from some of the top winemakers in the country as they browse shoes, handbags, jewelry and other accessories from a variety of labels. There’s a runway show, a shoe competition, an auction and a raffle. Tickets are $100 for general admission, $150 for VIP tickets, or $1,000 for a VIP table for eight.

Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission gives another glimpse of its future West Ashley property, Old Towne Creek County Park, with its seasonal Wine Down Wednesday event from 5-7 p.m. this week and again on Oct. 14 and Oct. 28. There will be hors d’oeuvres, live music by Henri Gates and of course, wine. Right now, the 67-acre property is only open during special events, but it will eventually become a county park available for regular use. Charleston County residents can register in advance for $15. Non-Charleston County residents and day-of admission is $20 per person. For more information, visit www.charlestoncountyparks.com or call 843-795-4386.
Over at the Glass Onion, 1219 Savannah Highway, Grassroots Wine will taste selections of “lesser known and affordable” wines paired with small bites for $10 per person from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Bottles also will be for sale. AFor more information, visit www.ilovetheglassonion.com/events
