NoMi Uncorked:

For those looking for a less frightening event, the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA) will have its first NoMi Uncorked event Friday night, which will “feature the best of professional wine tasting, local business networking, and a special Halloween-themed evening for the community to enjoy.”
