The Last Sip - Wine Diva's Farewell Party

  • Jun 29, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey Winos!

We've had some ridiculously fun times and I have met so many incredible people during my crazy fun 6+ year journey as the Winos R Us organizer. Witnessing this group grow from 200 to over 3,000 members has been quite a ride, and as I step down from this position, I'll be taking a ton of amazing memories with me...thank you for those! This will be effectively immediately....after one last hoorah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fabulous peeps at Arterra are showing us some serious Winos love so please be sure to reciprocate with the servers and bar staff. We have the entire outdoor pool deck lounge (with heaters and firepits) and Great Room area reserved for mixing, mingling, and some serious booty shaking! Check out these super generous winos-only hook ups that we get ALL NIGHT LONG:

  • A private satellite bar will be set up on the lounge patio to offer a variety of $6 wines
  • Happy hour prices on food (specials range from $4-$11)

Don't forget your dancing shoes because DJ Sachamo (who many of you will remember from our NYE bash) will be spinning tunes for us in the Great Room. Looking forward to going out with a winos-style bang....CHEERS!

    300+. Like Johnny Gill say, "my, my, my...... The lines for drinks are going to be ridiculous, haha. All in all going to be a good farewell for the Wine Diva. Don't worry Karen, I will step up and be the WINE P.I.M.P. (People, Interested, Meeting, People) lol.

    1 · June 28, 2013

    • Karen

      Thanks Terry...the wine line will be a great way to meet other thirsty winos...just turn around and say hello...but I'm sure they will appreciate any form of entertainment you have to offer!

      June 28, 2013

  • Elisha B.

    will do my best to get there...

    June 28, 2013

  • Tina

    Change in plans! I can be there! Yea!!!

    2 · June 28, 2013

  • Karen

    Looks like a fab crowd of winos and winettes! I hope the Arterra bar staff gets a good night's sleep tonight! Just a reminder the wine specials will ONLY be offered on the patio. The staff are A++ but please be prepared for a longer than usual line at the bar, as you can imagine how tough it would be to serve so many winos at once. And for those of you who have been asking about the end time, the DJ will play until 11pm and the bar closes at 11:30pm. See you all tomorrow! :)

    2 · June 28, 2013

  • Lisa

    We have another engagement...but hope everyone has a great time!
