At a recent Date Night (or Just Bring a Good Friend), Bob Shope and Pam Darnell cuddled at a corner table at Corks over a bottle of chardonnay and a pepperoni pizza. The cozy scene has become a familiar one on Tuesdays ever since the Willoughby bar launched its $20 wine-and-appetizer deal last month. The vino ranges from Spanish reds -- like garnacha and Luzon jumilla -- to German Rieslings and American white zinfandels. The appetizers include sun-dried tomato tapenades, four-cheese pizzas, and olives stuffed with rice, dill, and mint. For Shope and Darnell, the special settled a Super Bowl wager. She went for the Colts, I went for the Bears, says Shope, referring to Indianapolis victory over Chicago in February. Look whos buying.
