We are Wine Enthusiasts who believe in "Laughing Out Loud" in all we do! If you enjoy the finer things in life . . . like fine wines, great restaurants, really fun people, and can do it all with a positive attitude - this just may be the group for you. Some of the events we enjoy are wine tasting, happy hour events, dancing, outdoor activities and socializing with others.
Since most of the members live on the North side of the Columbia River (Clark County, WA)- we like keeping our hard earned disposable income here supporting local businesses. Every Week:
We gather for a Happy Hour at a local restaurants in the Vancouver area (attendance at these events can range from 5 to 20 or more). Some of the establishments are: Grays at the Hilton, Tommy O's Bistro, Roots, Beaches, The Grant House, LaPellah, Charlie's Bistro and Vinetopia. (so many more . . .)
Every Month: We select a "Restaurant of the Month". This is a fun event, as it's usually a smaller group of people (20) and we can chat and get to know each other better.
There are many more events . . . We average about 100 event a year.
The group started in February 2009 as a Social Group. We are NOT a singles group. Anyone who would like to join is encouraged to take a look at the site. If you know someone who is already a member, please be sure to tell us who they are and if they are referring you.
Prerequisite: Must have a Positive Outlook, Enjoy Fun and Laughter, and have a propensity use your zygomaticoauricularis - then be Prepared, 'Cause we're all about Living Out Loud! One of the things about this group that never ceases to amaze me . . . how absolutely "friendly" everyone is.
One rule that I insist on is that everyone honor your RSVP. That means if you can't make it, cancel before the meetup starts so that I can give the restaurant a good number and give anyone on a waiting list a chance to take your place. No-shows are bad for the group, the restaurant and Meetup's reputation in general. So my policy is 3 no shows and you are out! I know things happen but if they happen often that is not acceptable. So please, be courteous! I don't want to remove people from the group!
Note: All Restaurant events whether it's Happy Hour, Wine Tasting or Dinner - we always leave a minimum of 18% gratuity. As part of this groups commitment . . . we always treat Wait Staff with great respect. If you believe there's a problem with an establishment, we do not let it get in our way of an enjoyable evening.
