Flights of fancy en liven San Francisco midweek

Every Wednesday at the W Hotel San Francisco's XYZ Bar, a DJ sets up in the lounge and the sommelier serves unusual, high-end wines from around the world -- including local California wine country reserves -- ranging in price from $15 to $42 per glass.

The wines are paired with complimentary canapes: ahi tuna carpaccio with blood orange and daikon; speck prosciutto with asparagus and spiced nuts; fennel-cured beef tenderloin with sunchoke puree.

The best deal in the house is the "Tasting" Wine Flight: for $68, you get a full glass of champagne to start, plus two 3-ounce glasses of wine, and a 1.5-ounce glass of dessert wine.

XYZ Bar, W Hotel San Francisco, 181 Third St. 415-817-7836. xyz-sf.com .
