Attention! Calling all black sheep, bad seeds, outcasts and rejects! Next Tuesday, Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds will be rockin’ the grand interior of the Masonic Temple. No strangers to the constant ebb and flow of life, this alternative group has seen a multitude of members come and go and has experimented with every form of rock imaginable: punk, grunge, garage, gothic, no wave. You name it; chances are they’ve played it. We love Cave’s slow, haunting drawl in “Wide Lovely Eyes” and his metric story telling in “Red Right Hand”. Each song showcases different styles, sounds and instrumentals, leaving the listener constantly guessing what’s to come. Forest Gump could have alluded to Cave and the Bad Seeds because, like a box of chocolates, with this band, you never know what you’re gonna get.

It has been 50 years since San Francisco ad man Louis Honig bought his 68-acre ranch in California’s Napa Valley, planting it with grapes to sell to neighboring wineries. It has been 30 years since his grandson Michael Honig took over the vineyard and winery. And 25 years ago, the family began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, the sustainable, successful family winery now produces wines that appear on lists throughout the country. Those bottles will shine when paired with a menu from chef Alex Wannemacher’s 5-course dinner at Ann Arbor’s Chop House. Expect such choices as fennel-scented diver sea scallops, cardamom-crusted rack of lamb, porcini-dusted prime New York strip and more. It’s pricey, yeah, but what do you expect for a five-course meal with wines from a vineyard whose owner is right there with you?
