JazzÕn the Vines

Wine and music lovers unite as this 15-year-old Covington vineyard celebrates its Louisiana roots with music, food and, of course, wine. Craig Klein and his Euphonious Brass Brand for the second year in a row will kick off the season of performances at the Pontchartrain Vineyards by literally second-lining through the vineyards to jazz the vines. Klein is the well-known New Orleans trombonist who also performs with Bonerama, the Storyville Stompers and Harry Connick Jr.'s big band. This is one of those landmark spring events that's best enjoyed early in the season, and provides a great opportunity for Katrina-weary New Orleanians to make a peaceful, non-evacuation kind of trip across the lake. General admission $10, $85 for full season. -- Samuel H. Winston 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sat., May 13
