You know that a heaping plate of poutine pairs well with a Red Racer IPA, but you're lost when it comes to less conventional blends. Broaden your horizons with today's deal: $50 (regularly $125) enrolls you in the Bar Chef program at Metropolitan Bartending School in Kitsilano. Held each Monday at 6:30 p.m., this 3.5-hour course offers hands-on instruction on innovative cocktail crafting from master mixologist Micah Drew. Fill your shaker with spirits, syrups, and seasonal ingredients, and discover how fruit infusions and herb reductions can help you man the bar with a certain je ne sais quoi. Or, for the same price, pop the cork on a wine-tasting certificate class (a $125 value). Held from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday nights, this sipping session presents basic identification terms and cellar techniques in a mellow environment -- giving you the confidence needed for living large in the world of food-minded mixology.
