This Saturday night from 5 to 10 p.m., downtown L.A. wine bar Corkbar celebrates two successful years by offering a small menu of $2 tasting plates. The anniversary menu from chef Albert Aviles includes pork sausage sliders on a pretzel bun, mac 'n cheese with pasilla chiles and pork tenderloin with Israeli couscous.

Ale freaks can tap into the keg of Lagunitas Brewery's Little Sumpin' Sumpin beer, typically only available by the bottle ($8/glass). Corkbar will also crack open a few jeroboams of Qupé, including the 2008 Rousanne ($20/glass) and the 2005/2006 Hillside Estate Syrah ($21/glass). You've spent less money on food so you can splurge on wine, right?
