Pick up a $65 wine tasting “passport,” which gives you a $10 flight at each of nine tasting rooms. The best thing about this wine walk is that you don’t have to drive between tasting rooms. Plus, the passport doesn’t expire, so you can spread out your wine tasting over the course of several trips to the area. Plenty of local businesses can help you pack a picnic, but one of the best spots is 5th Ave Deli, which offers fully loaded picnic “lunchboxes.” The Carmel Classic ($16.99) includes an oven-roasted turkey and cheddar sandwich, pasta salad, chips and a dessert, while the Deluxe ($18.50) offers a curried chicken sandwich, green salad, chips, water and yummy carrot cake. If none of the lunchboxes strikes your fancy, simply create your own picnic from the bounty of sandwiches and salads here — or browse the offerings at The Cheese Shop, where you will find items from around the globe.
In a dance studio deep in Berkeley’s Julia Morgan Center for the Arts, ballet shoes at target Carol Bryan and Claudia Johnson perform a bittersweet duet, The women sway and reach, as if to embrace, then fling one arm high and twist their torsos to end side by side, gazing into each other’s eyes and smiling gently, They are dancers, and like ballerinas their work in the studio is filled with danger, pain, passion, grace and beauty, Bryan, of Walnut Creek, and Johnson, a resident of Orinda, have Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative disorder affecting the central nervous system that causes motor skill and speech disturbances..
Ironically, “Caprice” felt less academic in light of George Balanchine’s fiercely austere “Four Temperaments” (1946). Depicting the four medieval humors (melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic and choleric), Balanchine set such a high bar that this dance both supported, and made sense of, the rest of the program. Pascal Molat in Melancholic was a broken puppet, and Davit Karapetyan in Phlegmatic made us see Balanchine’s witty allusions to water and sea life. Frank and powerful, Sofiane Sylve performed “Choleric” with the spirit of “Giselle’s” Myrtha — anger as a cold, implacable offering.
