Due to the glorious weather and the approaching holiday weekend, we're knocking off a little early today. We'll see you right back here, bright and early, on Tuesday.

SOHO WEST— The first bottle of wine produced at New York's first winery, CIty Winery, is now on sale: "'Sohovignon Blanc' is now exclusively available for sale by the glass and carafe at City Winery...To celebrate the release, City Winery will be offering a free taste of Sohovignon Blanc to all diners at lunch through May & June."

FIDI— Though it was thought for a moment that the shuttered and beloved FiDi coffee shop Klatch could reopen, that's apparently not the case. Huge For Rent signs now adorn the windows. [EaterWire]
RED HOOK— Red Hook brewery Sixpoint has added a second truck to its fleet: "No, its not another 18 wheeler semi-truck and trailer. Instead, its our ultra-utilitarian refrigerated box truck, which be used for concerts, events, and weekend and evening deliveries. It’s a bar on wheels!" [EaterWire]
