“Lord what fools these mortals be!” cried Puck at the young Athenians’ silly behavior over love, in Act 3, scene one, line 115 in William Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. Instead of young Athenian men and women being wholly absorbed in their emotions, wine lovers and culinary aficionados will be absorbed in tasting and consuming at Savinos Grill Midsummer Night’s Wine Dinner on Tuesday, July 20th, at 6:30pm.
