Meetup Description: Hello wine lovers!
What is Casual Night?
No, it?s not cut offs and t-shirt kind of casual. Casual nights are casual wine tastings. We get together at someone's house to enjoy wine, food, each other's company and wine knowledge.
Who should come?
Do you love wine? Do you like wine? Do you want to taste different wines? Then you should come to Casual Night.
We've been invited to Ian and Anne's house in Ahwatukee for our January Casual Night on Saturday, Jan. 24th beginning at 6:30 pm. The nearest major cross streets are Chandler Blvd. and 32nd St.
And the theme is Australia because Jan. 26th is a national holiday called Australia Day. Check out this link for details. http://www.australiaday.org.au/experience/page31.asp
What to bring ? food and wine
You are asked to bring one or two bottles of wine and dish to share that go along with the theme of the event. Since our Meetups generally occur at or around the dinner hour, please bring food that is somewhat substantial, as in something you would like to eat for dinner. Bring something to serve about four people.
Ideally, bring food and wine that matches the theme unless it's just not something you like, in which case bring whatever you want. If you don?t cook, don?t worry. Try the prepared food section of your favorite gourmet grocer or restaurant. And if you post what you are bringing, that helps others to plan so we have less duplication of foods.
Some of you have asked for suggestions of places to buy wine for these events. This should not be an added stress for you. Several places have knowledgeable staff and are very helpful. AJs, World Market/Cost Plus, Sportsman?s Fine Wines and Vine Expressions all come recommended from Meetup members.
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 or Maybe by Thursday night will be sent the address on Friday (for security reasons). If you haven't received directions by Friday late evening, please email Tana or me. (These emails do get blocked sometimes, so check your spam box first, too.)
If your plans change, please do me a favor and change your RSVP because it makes it much easier for the host to plan the event. Just 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!
Any questions, please let me know.
