Wine, Weber's and Thom
French food and wine will be the fare as Weber's on Boston celebrates "Passions: The Wines and Travel of Thomas Jefferson," with author Jim Gabler tomorrow night. Price for the six-course dinner is $65 a person, and includes an autographed copy of the book. There will also be a silent auction of wines, with proceeds going to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. The restaurant is at 2400 Boston St. For reservations, call (410) 276-0800.

What a ham!
Forty calories per serving and no fat -- must be one of those boring, good-for-you products, right? Well, no, it's the new Oscar Meyer Free fat-free deli-style ham. Made from the leanest cuts of ham, carefully trimmed, it comes in three flavors: honey-baked, baked, and smoked. A 5-ounce package costs about $2.
