Pun on your drinking shoes. Flights of Fancy returns to New Haven this week. On Thu., Jan. 31, a handful of downtown establishments open their doors with samples from The Wine Thief's wines, and specials like 20% off an item at shops in the Broadway and Chapel shopping districts. Your first stop is The Study Hotel, where you'll receive your Flights of Fancy wine glass and event map, between 4 and 7 p.m. From 4-8 p.m., the city is yours to wander, imbibe, and spend. At 8:15 p.m., head back to The Study Hotel for dessert and coffee, and the grand prize drawing. Get more info at infonewhaven.com/flightsoffancy, and RSVP.
