DOWNWARD DRUNKY DOG: We always suspected this whole yoga craze was little more than a way for spoiled wealthy New Yorkers who were born beautiful and skinny to pretend to have an inner life and visit India to boss the locals around the way their brutal English forefathers did, only adding “Namaste” to the end of each barked order for more lemonade—and now we know. The Exhale Spa on Madison Avenue offers a “Yoga & Wine” class today, taught by Angela Gergano, a former wine-buyer turned yogi. You’ll get a 75-minute practice followed by a guided tasting of “exotic wines.” Meanwhile, for those not sitting around on the couch fantasizing about a night with Tony Soprano (it’s not just us, is it?), a band called Beirut takes the stage at Bowery Ballroom. The band has a “unique Balkan influence” that makes us think of Perfect Strangers and, strangely, has the effect of making us want some grilled sausage. Who knew?

[Yoga & Wine, Exhale Spa, 980 Madison Avenue, 2 to 4 p.m., 212-249-3000; Urge Nights presents Beirut, Bowery Ballroom, 6 Delancey Street, www.boweryballroom.com].
