Preservation Hall Jazz Band: First let's dispel a myth: There isn't just one Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Several bands regularly perform traditional New Orleans jazz at Preservation Hall in the French Quarter. And the place is well worth a visit. Of course, you're not in N'Awlins tonight; you're in Miami. But what better way to spend a not-so-fat Tuesday than to head to Coral Gables Congregational Church (3010 DeSoto Blvd., Coral Gables), where one of the three PHJBs currently touring the United states performs at 8:00? Tickets cost $25 ($30 for "preferred" seating). A far cry from the few bucks it'd cost you in the Big Easy, but like we just got done saying, you're in Miami. For more info call 448-7421 -- but don't call it Dixieland. (TF)

Napa Valley Wine Tasting: Scores of Napa Valley wineries have sent forth the fruit of their vines for this tasting and silent auction, to be held this evening at the Biltmore Hotel (1200 Anastasia Ave.) in Coral Gables. What the Napa folks -- including Cain Vineyards, Franciscan Oakville Estate, Grgich Hills, Joseph Phelps, Swanson Vineyards, and Robert Mondavi Winery -- get out of it is the undivided attention of your palate. What Abilities of Florida gets out of it is the proceeds, which will help the 38-year-old nonprofit continue to help disabled Floridians find gainful employment. What you get out of it is wine, wine, and more wine, paired with foods from local gourmet emporia. The swirlin', sniffin', and sippin' runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 in advance, $50 at the door. Call 669-6981. (TF)

Beck: Jive-ass hip-hop hipster or postmodern innovator? No matter what you think of the dry, droll work of Beck, the guy is simply everywhere. Since the late-'96 release of Odelay, he's been lauded by both the rock press (Artist of the Year in Spin and Rolling Stone, among other rags) and the music industry (Beck picked up a Grammy for his undeniably catchy single "Where It's At") and become the cool boy of the no-smilin' alt-rock generation. And to think all he's really done is apply acoustic guitars and stoner vocals to the punk-rap fusions of the Beastie Boys. Whatever. Check Mister Beck yourself tonight at the new Chili Pepper -- formerly the Edge (200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) -- with opening acts the Cardigans and Atari Teenage Riot (see "Music," page 83). Doors open for the all-ages show at 7:00 p.m.; tickets cost $15. Call 954-525-0094.
