Announcing a new Meetup for The Chandler/Gilbert Wine Meetup Group!

What: Casual Night at Nori?s

When: Saturday, November 20,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Nori's House
56th Street & Ray
Chandler, AZ 85226

What is Casual Night?
Casual nights are casual wine tastings where we get together at someone?s house to enjoy wine, food, each other's company and wine knowledge.

Who should come?
Do you like wine? Do you want to taste different wines? Then you should come to Casual Night.

In November
You are all invited to Nori?s house on Saturday, November 20th, beginning at 7:00 pm. The major crossroads are 56th?Street & Ray in Chandler.

Wine Theme
The theme is Wines for the Holidays. Bring a favorite wine that you like to serve at holiday gatherings.

What to bring ? food and wine

Wine - You are asked to bring one or two bottles of wine. (Think $10, $15 or $20 a bottle.) Ideally, bring a wine that matches the theme. If it?s a wine that you positively do not like, bring a wine that you do like. Remember that we are there to taste and learn about different wines each month.

With so many bottles of wine to try at casual night, wouldn?t it be nice to know a little more about the wine you are tasting and where you could purchase that particular wine? We would like everyone to write a note and tape it to the bottle indicating ? your name, where you bought it, your thoughts about the wine if you have tasted it before (like a "review" of the wine) and the cost of the wine. Just don?t cover the bottle?s label. We will provide labels when you sign in if you forget to label your bottle beforehand

Food ? We are asking that any member whose first name begins with M to Z and anyone that?s bringing a guest (more than one person on the RSVP) to bring a dish to share. (The other half of the alphabet will be asked to bring a dish next month.) If it?s not your turn to bring food this month, but you have a dish you really want to bring, please feel free to bring it. I?m sure that the group will enjoy it. Also bring serving utensils for your dish.

Also - for this event we would like to have about 8 appetizers, 8 side dishes and 4 desserts, so please post a general idea of what you are going to bring when you RSVP.

RSVP and directions
As a courtesy to the hosts, please respond to the invitation no later than Thursday evening before the event. Only those who respond YES by Thursday night will be sent the address on Friday. If you haven't received directions by Friday late evening, please email Tana or me. (These emails are blocked sometimes, so check your spam box first, too.)

You are always welcome to bring a guest to an event - we?d love to meet them! We just ask that you include that person in your RSVP, just add the correct number of guests and click Update RSVP. The Meetup system totals members and their guests automatically when giving an expected attendance. And if you are bringing a guest, please make sure to increase the amount of food and wine you are bringing accordingly.

If your plans change, please change your RSVP because it makes it much easier for the host to plan the event. Go back into the event and your current response shows on the top right of the page. Just click your new response and submit. Thanks!

Wine and Drive
These don?t mix, obviously. Each person attending these events is responsible for his/her own safety and sobriety. The host is in no way liable for anything that might occur at the event or afterward, including driving home. You are responsible to designate a driver for yourself and your companions for every event.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
