Roundup: Wine Tasting, Robot …


If it’s a day that ends in “y,” it’s a good time for wine.

The Westport Woman’s Club plans a wine tasting for Friday, July 23 (6-8 p.m., 44 Imperial Avenue). Net proceeds benefit Staples High School scholarships, and grants to community organization. A portion of the wine orders at the event will be donated to the WWC, too. Door prizes are donated by Castle Wine and Gaetano Catering.

Tickets are $30 each. To order, and for more information, click here.


Robots: They’re not just for Stop & Shop. Mark Mathias, his wife Kim and dog Loki spotted one on Washington Avenue. He writes:

“Luckily Loki was on guard, ensuring it stayed on the owner’s property. These robots start at about $1,200, and go up to at least $4,800. I’d like one that pulls weeds, too.”
