Woman of Steel is Also Woman of Coffee

The Woman of Steel Gallery is the brainchild of welder/artist Irene Deely and the concept is part art gallery, part bar and completely original. Come in for a glass of wine and watch Irene coax art from steel. And now, as of April 5, the Woman of Steel Gallery has new, earlier hours, with espresso lattes and muffins from Java to help you start your day. New hours are 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Breakfast and art-cool.

Woman of Steel Gallery, 3640 Chinden Blvd., 331-5632, www.ideely.com.

Facility Expansion at Sawtooth Winery

Corus Estates and Vineyards, a Washington-based producer of exclusively Northwest wines, announced that its Sawtooth Winery in Nampa has been recently expanded with new equipment aimed at increasing not just the quantity but the quality of the wine Sawtooth produces. This comes as Corus announces a move away from distributing disparate brands to developing, producing and selling higher quality boutique wines.

Sawtooth Winery, 13750 Surrey Lane, Nampa, 467-1200.

"Easter Ham Love Your Leftovers" Contest

If you're staring down a picked-over Easter ham that you don't know what to do with and can't bear to throw away, or if you have an awesome leftover recipe you've been keeping in your back pocket, here's an incentive to rethink that hunk of pig. The Pork Information Bureau is having an "Easter Ham Love Your Leftovers" contest. But if you enter, you'd better do it for love of the game-not financial gain-because there's no cash prize here, just a year's supply of ham for the grand prizewinner and "The Other White Meat" aprons for 25 also-rans. Entry deadline is May 31.

For more contest information, contact the Pork Information Bureau, P.O. Box 9114, Des Moines, Iowa 50306, 1-800-937-PORK, www.theotherwhitemeat.com.
