Last weekend's blizzard -- and the forecast of more snow this weekend -- might be spoiling some of your weekend fun. But since this weekend's snowfall is not expected to amount to much, get out and enjoy this selection of activities in Fairfield:
Attend the "HeART of Hope" wine tasting and art exhibit at the Bellarmine Museum of Art at Fairfield University, 1073 North Benson Road, on Friday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $65 per person and $100 per couple, and the proceeds benefit Operation Hope, the nonprofit that manages local homeless shelters, a community kitchen and food pantry, and transitional housing programs..
