Two events next weekend at the Oak Creek Community Center offer a variety of tastes to whet your palette.
On Feb. 15, the community center will host its fourth-annual Valentine's wine and beer tasting event, which features more than 20 quality wines and 20 Wisconsin craft beers, commemorative glasses and appetizers.
The event also includes live music from Sweet Music of Oak Creek. Tickets are $35 per person and $15 for designated drivers and can be purchased online.
The next night, the Taste of Italy returns to the community center.
Chicken Parmesan, four cheese ravioli, Italian sausage, penne pasta and much more are on the menu. Raffles and musical entertainment will also be part of the evening.
Tickets, which are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $6 for children, must be purchased in advance at the community center, 8580 S. Howell Ave. All proceeds benefit children's programs in Oak Creek.
