* The transition from BYO to liquor-licensed can be tough on a restaurant's loyal following. So say the folks at Francoluigi's Pizzeria & Classic Italian Dining (1549 S. 13th St., 215-755-8900 francoluigis.com), who are letting their clientele down easy (even though it's been nearly two years since they got the license) by pricing all bottled wines at $23 in January, $24 in February.
* Need an excuse to spend three hours sampling brews and apps? We have one! From 6-9 p.m. Jan. 31, Growlers Bar (8th and Fitzwater, 267-519-3242, growlersbar.com) will host a fund-raiser for Camp Wilbur Herrlich, a nonprofit camp for disadvantaged kids in upstate New York. $40; tickets at http://sendomatic.
