Drink. Don’t Drive.

That’s the idea behind one upcoming party that wants you to enjoy yourself responsibly. The Nov. 7 event, hosted by Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge and presented by Women Executives in the Beverage Industry (WEBI) and BarMagic of Las Vegas, is a fundraiser for author and founding WEBI member Meghan Leary, who was recently injured in an alcohol-related accident. Sponsors include Beam Global, William Grant & Sons, Macchu Pisco, DiSaronno, Cheers, 97.1-FM The Point, Dress the Drink, BarSmarts, ÜberBar Tools and mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim. The party will feature a silent auction, complimentary food and specialty cocktails prepared by BarMagic’s Tobin Ellis, Francesco Lafranconi and Patricia Richards, among others. It also marks the kickoff of a new movement supporting safer imbibing and social responsibility within the beverage industry. So, drink up, Buttercup. Just don’t drive. In Town Square, 9 p.m.-1 a.m., no cover but a donation is suggested.

Risotto Primavera, Rao’s

By Grace Bascos

The trick to a good risotto is constant stirring. The Italian gourmand Giacomo Bologna once famously said, “When you can count the number of grains of rice in your mouth, the risotto is done properly.” Rao’s chef de cuisine Nicole Grimes serves her risotto in a round, stainless steel dish. The Primavera—laden with spinach, carrot and zucchini—is light, buttery and near perfection. $29, in Caesars Palace, 731-7267.
