Many of the spirits we know and love are made from grain. But what do you do when you've got more grapes than grain? You make brandy! In this class we'll learn all about spirits made from grapes and other fruits, like brandy, cognac, pisco, applejack and various eau-de-vies. And of course we'll mix up some cocktails with them too! Class is hands-on with lots of tasting opportunities.

Peter Wolf: The Ark.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less Peter Wolf

May 4 (sold out) & 5. Best known as the longtime frontman of the durably semipopular 70s R&B-based blues-rock group J. Geils Band, Wolf is an distinctive vocalist whose style is an engagingly seductive blend of blue-eyed soul intensity with the devil-may-care ethos of garage rock. He has since fashioned a quietly impressive solo career: his 2002 CD Sleepless, made Rolling Stone's list of the 500 best albums of all time, and his latest record, the 2010 CD Midnight Souvenirs, is a typically mongrel collection highlighted by duets with Shelby Lynne, Neko Case, and Merle Haggard.
8 p.m., The Ark, 316 S. Main. Tickets $35 in advance at the Michigan Union Ticket Office (mutotix.com) and theark.org, and at the door. To charge by phone, call 763-TKTS. [map]
