'BUCKS WIRE -- Starbucks is experimenting with a latte that mimics the flavor of Guinness beer. Bummer, though -- there's no actual booze in the drink, to be called Dark Barrel Latte. The drink is concocted with a syrup inspired by dark beers like Guinness and is topped with whipped cream and a dark caramel sauce. The coffee giant is testing it in select locations in Ohio and Florida. [Eater Wire]

BELLTOWN -- Get your wine fix at the first Belltown Crush Party taking place this Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Sample wine from 15 Lake Chelan, Leavenworth, and Wenatchee Valley wineries, stomp some grapes, and listen to live music. Where Ya At Matt and Raney Brothers BBQ will be serving food, too. It all takes place in the new Bell Street Park, between Second and Third avenues; proceeds benefit the University District Food Bank. [EaterWire]
