Wine food Fest Jan. Mohegan

Mohegan Sun is readying one of its most ambitious Wine & Food Fest weekends in years from Thursday, Jan. 24, through Sunday, Jan. 27. The popular vino Grand Tasting is on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. (a VIP hour is from 11 a.m. to noon) at the Earth Expo & Convention Center. Tickets are $99.

But the weekend begins with a sporting touch on Thursday, 7-9 p.m. in Earth Ballroom, with Pedro Martinez, Paul Pierce, Ray Bourque and Willie McGinest teaming up with top Boston chefs to prepare their favorite tailgate foods. The new event is called Boston Brews & Bites. (Sorry, Yankees fans.)

On Friday there will be a Bourbon Tasting presented by Beam Inc. and Bear’s Smokehouse from 6-9 p.m. at Earth Ballroom ($90) and a Grand Tasting Preview from 7-10 in the Convention Center ($50).

On Saturday, there will also be the premium-wine Vintage Cru from 4-6 p.m. in the Earth Ballroom ($150, which includes a $50 gift card to tasty-but-pricey iGourmet.com. Later on in the evening, the Celebrity Chef Dine Around is from 8-10:30 p.m., where over 20 chefs create unique signature food items paired with a wine, beer, or spirit. It’s $199 a ticket.

Capping the weekend, country music stars Martina McBride and Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town will team up with Food Network’s Anne Burrell at the Sunday Brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Uncas Ballroom. Tickets are $90 per person.
