WATER, Water EVERYWHERE
Next week, many local restaurants will ask customers for a little something extra to help support a worldwide cause. UNICEF (www.unicef.org), the global children's health and nutrition agency, holds its annual Tap Water Project from Sunday, March 22, through Saturday, March 28. Diners can support UNICEF drinking water and sanitation programs by donating a minimum of $1 for tap-water service. For details and participating local restaurants, go to www.tapproject.org.
Wine en Point
Passengers disembarking at the Algiers Point ferry terminal have an easy downhill stroll directly into Vine & Dine (141 Delaronde St., 361-1402; www.vine-dine.com), a new wine shop, deli and caterer. The store stocks wines, cheese and pates, and prepares sandwiches and dinners to go.
