Carmel Kahn's gets new name

A couple of months after former Kahn's Fine Wines partners Jim Arnold and Joe Husar split, the store in Carmel finally has a new name: Vino Couture.

Hmm. Well, vino means "wine," that's easy enough. And couture translates to "the business of designing, making, and selling fashionable custom-made women's clothing," according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary.

So, are they making dresses out of wine in Carmel now, in addition to the food and beverage sales? Here's a tip: If your date shows up in one of these, keep a can of Wine-Away handy. (And if her hair and makeup look anything like that model's, a couple of 750s of a high-alcohol Zinfandel might be good to have on hand, too.)
