New place to drink

If you haven't been to We Olive's adorable wine bar be sure to stop by OC Mart Mix in Costa Mesa soon. Their discreet little space has a tasting bar and just enough spots to perch on stools with a few friends. They're rolling out the welcome mat with these August tempters. I think the biggest hit will be the free bubbly. But you be the judge:
 
1. Free glass of sparkling wine, one per customer, served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday during the Farmers Market.
2. Wine tasting noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 21 with Cal State Long Beach prof Anna Ortiz pouring a "Taste of 8" for $20. Reservations recommended. Call 949-284-0609 or email weolivewinebarmix@yahoo.com.
3. Happy Hour 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 4 p.m. to close Friday; 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Taco Thursday with $1 tacos and $5 sangria. Live acoustic music 6 to 9 p.m. Friday.
 
See you in the bar!—Anne Valdespino
