    Rock and wine, together at last.

    You love wine. But you also love rock and roll. What’s a grape-quaffing Ledhead to do? Come down to City Winery for a night of shredding and sipping, as classic-rock radio station Q104.3 offers up a pairing of 20 international wines with live renditions of its 20 most-requested songs of 2009. (And yes, “Stairway to Heaven” is on that list -- at no. 1, with an imaginary bullet in our minds.) From the organizers:

    "On-air personalities will be joining the City Winery wine experts throughout the festivities, guiding the audience through the pairing of individual wines to every song. [...] Godfrey Townsend will cover all of the classic Top 20 songs, with special guest artists to be confirmed."

    And this list, to whet the appetite:

    1 Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven
    2 Beatles - Hey Jude
    3 Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run
    4 Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird
    5 Who - Baba ORiley
    6 Derek & The Dominos – Layla
    7 Eagles - Hotel California
    8 Who - Won't Get Fooled Again
    9 Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
    10 Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road
    11 Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
    12 Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil
    13 Beatles - Let It Be
    14 John Lennon - Imagine
    15 Rolling Stones – Satisfaction
    16 Led Zeppelin – Kashmir
    17 Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    18 Billy Joel - Piano Man
    19 Bruce Springsteen – Rosalita
    20 Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter 

    City Winery will also be serving a six-course tasting menu at the event – then again, you could be all Keef about it and skip food in favor of more booze and cigarettes. That’s really rock and roll.
