ART & WINE

Jessica Hagadorn, founder of Young Winos of D.C., wants you to join her Capital region 20- and 30-something group of wine enthusiasts -- that is, only if you are actually a wine enthusiast. This group is co-hosting this week's Corcoran Uncorked from 5 to 9 p.m., a series of late-night programming every Wednesday evening at the fine-art museum. For just $15, you'll receive one drink ticket redeemable at the museum's restaurant, Muse (500 17th St. NW), along with access and tours of many of the museum's exhibits. The wines featured this week include a local rose from Middleburg, Va., and a Shindig Vidal Blanc from the Finger Lakes region of New York.

If you're interested in learning more about Young Winos and what it takes to join, email Jessica at youngwinosofdc@gmail.com. To see the full schedule of Uncorked events, go to corcoran.org/uncorked.

MOVIE BUFFS

Movie fans are in heaven this time of year as we fly from awards show to awards show. If you're like us and participate in red carpet fantasy leagues, you'll want to check out the Academy Awards Trivia Night on Capitol Hill, sponsored by National Geographic Live and Brightest Young Things. The sure-to-be-fun evening will be hosted by BYT's movie editor, Alan Zilberman, and will feature question categories such as "Get Your Snob On: Movies With Subtitles" and "Romantic Comedies Without Katherine Heigl or Kate Hudson."

The event will be held at the newly renovated Tune Inn (331 1/2 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) -- they sadly removed the beloved taxidermy. Get there early for the 7 p.m. event because seats will be very hard to come by.

If you're a movie buff and can't make it, remember National Geographic shows the Foreign Language Film nominees Feb. 15-17, and the National Archives will be showing the nominated Documentaries and Short Subjects Feb. 20-24.
