Wine and Cheese Potluck

  • Apr 5, 2014 · 11:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Bring along a bottle of Wine and your favorite Cheese,
Chocolate or Fruit.

I thought it might be fun to pick Wines from Australia
(Great Shiraz and Pinot) or Chile (i.e. Bold Reds, Malbec)
or Japan ( i.e. Sake ) for this one.

We can relax and try each others wine and decide what
we like best. Good opportunity to learn about other
people's favorite wines from these locations.

Great chance to discover the perfect wine and to try
something new

We can also watch the buddy movie Sideways (if you like)
which is about two guys who go on a wine tasting trip in
California and discover a little about wine and about life.

Bring your designated driver or catch the bus and come
out for a fun time.

Feel free to drop in anytime between noon and 4 PM

Driving
If you are going via the Port Mann bridge. Take the first exit
after the bridge onto 152nd street and continue past Guildford
mall. Take a left when you come to 94th avenue and then
another left at 154th street. 154th street will lead you to 95th

If you are coming from Vancouver via the Alex Fraser bridge.
Take the first exit after the bridge (Nordel Way) and continue
along Nordel way until it becomes 88th Ave. Continue along
88th Avenue until you get to 152nd street (about 10 mins)
and then take a left at 152nd and then a right when you get
to 94th avenue and another left at 154th street.

Take the expo line sky-train to Surrey Central and then
catch the 320 bus. The bus will go up 104th avenue and
then turn onto 152nd street at Guildford mall. Stay on
the bus until it reaches 152nd street and 96th avenue.
There is a walking path between 95th avenue and
96th avenue. Take the path and look for the second
side trail on the right. Alternatively, you can walk up
94th avenue and take a left just past the school.

    I picked up a bottle of Vina Maipo Vitral Carmenere from Chile for my contribution. Should go well with my spicy Jalapeno cheese.
