So it might be time for you to give back to them—oh, and enjoy a little wine and cheese to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The 14th annual wine-and-cheese party, catered by Tony Caputo's Market & Deli, promises an afternoon of music and bidding on opportunity baskets. The Bayou, 645 S. State, 801-364-7765, Sunday, Sept. 18, 1-4 p.m., $45/advance, $50/door, table of 6/$250,
