Wine and football

But let go of that thought and imagine wine instead, specifically the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl's Flavors Wine Tasting, which benefits charities including the University of Hawaii's Rainbow Fever Scholarship fund.
An international selection of more than 100 wines will be featured at 6 p.m. July 20 in the Sheraton Waikiki Ballroom.
Also included: a wine seminar, door prizes and a silent auction that includes sports memorabilia and trips to Sheraton properties. Sheraton Hotels and Resorts is the title sponsor of the Hawaii Bowl.
Cost is $65 in advance; $75 at the door. Tickets are available at the UH ticket office or through www.etickethawaii.com.
