The event: Spring Wine Walk, June 18, downtown Walnut Creek

The vibe: What is it about strolling and sipping that appeals to us so much? Perhaps it's the warm, early evening sun shining on us. Maybe it's the secret thrill of imbibing while wandering through the mega-million-dollar aisles of Neiman Marcus that makes us giddy. Or -- wait for it -- trying on shoes between slurps of chardonnay. Needless to say, grab your honey and a pair of tickets to Walnut Creek's seventh annual Spring Wine Walk and enjoy top-notch wines from 10 vintners, including Sterling Albert, JC Cellars, Rosenblum and Vino Vargas.

The details: 6-9 p.m.; $30 advance, $40 at the door. Starting location (to receive glass, hand stamp and map of participating locations) is Pro Home Systems, 1561 Civic Drive. Go to www.walnutcreekdowntown.com or purchase tickets at Atlas Men's Clothing (1571 Botelho Drive) or Mechanics Bank (1350 N. Main St.).

For the couple who: Like multi-tasting.
