Red, Red Wine

Like fine wine, some songs age well. Neil Diamond wrote “Red, Red Wine” in the late ’60s; it got new legs from UB40 in 1983. Eastern Market’s Cost Plus Wine shop has also aged well, and tied for Wayne County’s Best Wine Shop. They’ve given tasteful advice since Tim McCarthy opened it St. Patrick’s Day 1982. McCarthy’s son, Dan, now runs the joint. And red wine “makes me forget,” right? Good thing. We’d rather not be reminded of ’80s trends like wine coolers (Bartles & Jaymes, anyone?) or Blue Nun. 313-259-3845
