For those heading back to work today, give yourself the gift of tonight’s Wednesday Night Flight at 51 Lincoln in Newton Highlands. Each Wednesday the sommelier picks a varietal on which to focus, and pours three different wines so you can taste the nuanced differences. Chef/owner Jeffrey Fournier prepares small plates to pair with the wine. Price depends upon the wines (617-965-3100). Another way to get over the hump? Head to T.W. Food after 8:30 PM for chef/owner Tim Wiechmann’s “Kitchen Improv” dinner series, when he’ll whip up a personalized chef’s tasting (five courses!) for a nominal fee; vegetarian options available, too ($45 per person; add $25 per person for wine pairings; 617-864-4745).
