Dining Calendar

Advance registration or reservations are recommended for most events. THIS WEEK DEC. 26 If you think your nerves can take it so soon after your Christmas Day off, consider dropping by Seattle Cellars to watch Michael Holloman chop the tops off champagne bottles with a saber. Oh, and taste what comes out, too. Free. 5-7 p.m. at 2505 Second Ave., 206-256-0850. THROUGH DEC. 30 Your Christmas goose is cooked. Chef HansPeter Aebersold is slow-roasting the goose in question and making it a meal with spaetzle and red cabbage on the side. All of this can be yours for a mere $24, or you can opt for the deluxe treatment and get a four-course holiday feast (including soup, salad, and apfelstrudel) for $40. Geneva Restaurant, 1106 Eighth Ave., 206-624-2222. DOWNTOWN COMING UP JAN. 9 Morton's Steakhouse—the first name in Spanish wines? Perhaps not, but to get 2003 off to a rousing start, the popular steakery is putting a Barranc Priorat in the company of a Palacio de Menade Rueda for a tasting that will also include complimentary steak sandwiches. Other wines from Iberia are sure to make an appearance, and so should you. Free. 5:30-7 p.m. 1511 Sixth Ave., 206-223-0550. DOWNTOWN JAN. 15 Educate yourself about the Cedar River Watershed, a precious local resource, while enjoying "delicious cuisine and live entertainment" at participating restaurants.

All proceeds go to watershed education and preservation.
