Wine at the beach

Waves of fine spirits will gently lap the shores of Inlet Park in Ocean City during the Second Annual Winefest on the Beach tomorrow through Sunday.

This year's festival will draw on 25 wineries from across the United States. The Delmarva Chef's & Cook's Association sponsors a Winefest Cook-off Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon, and spectators can sample each dish for a $5 donation.

The festival will also offer live entertainment, arts and crafts and micro-brewed beers. Live performances start tomorrow with Kevin Poole and the group Teenage Rust and the Rustettes. Appearing on Saturday are the Washington-based funk group Unity Reggae Band, the Geckos and Bird Dog and the Road Kings. The Mighty Chihuahuas and East Coast blues wailer Tom Larsen will close out the festival Sunday evening.

Winefest hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow; noon to 8 p.m. Saturday; 12: 30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $16, including wine glass and samples. $5 for ages 7-21. Children under 7 get in free, but those under 21 must be accompanied by a parent. Call 800-OC-OCEAN or 410-280-3306.

Artful dodges

Mislead. Inveigle. Obfuscate. If any of these words sound overly familiar, then the Winterthur Museum's new "Deceit, Deception, and Discovery" exhibit is sure to satiate your appetite for knavery. The Delaware museum's new three-section exhibit runs tomorrow through Jan. 31, 1999, and will delve into issues of mistaken identity, fraud and ways to determine an object's approximate age.

The "Deceit" part of the exhibit will catalog a rogue's gallery of faked art made or altered for financial gain. It includes an authentic letter penned by George Washington alongside an elaborate forgery.

The Winterthur Museum is open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. Admission is $8; $6 for seniors and students; $4 for children 5-11. The museum is in Winterthur, Del., on Route 52, six miles northwest of Wilmington. Call 800-448-3883.
