“Savvy yet fun” are words to describe both comedian-author Amy Sedaris and the innovative NYC wine shop Bottlerocket, so it makes sense that the two are joining forces today, May 9, for the latest in the shop’s Eclectic Salon series of events. The benefits of attending are two-fold: a glass of wine and a giggle at Sedaris’ irreverent entertaining advice will help diffuse stress—er, excitement—from impending Mother’s Day festivities, and between Bottlerocket’s well-edited selection of wines and signed copies of Sedaris’ book, I LIKE YOU: Hospitality Under the Influence, you’ll have mom’s gift covered. Plus, mothers in attendance will be happy to know that kids are welcomed at this and other Bottlerocket events, so bring the whole family. The signing and wining take place from 6-8 p.m. at Bottlerocket, 5 W. 19th St. Admission is free. For more info, call the shop at 212-929-2323. —Shoshanna Cohen
