Short List 

Sinbad, Tour de Champagne and more

JANUARY 19 SATURDAY

SINBAD is one of the few comedians who can do clean comedy without sounding corny. The big man who used to rock a parrot's feather as an earring has starred in such films as House Guest and served as a longtime host of "Showtime at the Apollo," but he truly shines as a stand-up comedian, somehow making family-oriented PG material cool. $37.50. 8 p.m. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway. 770-916-2800. www.cobbenergycentre.com.

JANUARY 19 SATURDAY

It's no mystery why Wordsmiths Books is hosting a book launch for Georgia's own musical mystery author DAVID FULMER. The 2006 Georgia author of the year's sonorous stories include the jazz-driven Storyville and blues-centered The Dying Crapshooter's Blues. Tonight's event celebrates his most recent novel, The Blue Door, which rocks 'n' rolls through a 1960s Philadelphia underworld. See Arts, p. 39, for more. Free. 7:30 p.m. 141 E. Trinity Place, Decatur. 404-378-7166. www.wordsmithsbooks.com. (Abi Berwager)

JANUARY 19 SATURDAY

If all those New Year's Eve bubbles left you feeling particularly bubblicious, don't fret – the party continues tonight at the TOUR DE CHAMPAGNE. The celebration at downtown's Ritz-Carlton features more than 20 brands of Champagne, as well as food from Joël, Shaun's and others, and a silent auction benefiting Angel Flight of Georgia. VIP ticket holders receive access to the fin de soiree, which includes a cognac tasting and dessert, as well as more, um, Champagne. $110-$150. 7-10 p.m. 181 Peachtree St. 404-659-0400. www.tourdechampagne.com.
