I want to thank those of you who call or change your RSVP to "No" when you are unable to make the planned event. I really appreciate your courtesy.
I realize "Life Happens" and sometimes you just cannot make it or you just don't feel like attending after a hectic day at work. I understand. However, if that is the case please call me or email me that you aren't coming. I carry my phone with me and can access the website or check my email for messages. Just not showing up isn't working for me.
Unfortunately, as much as I hate to do this I am seriously contemplating putting a policy in place for the Chandler Foodies and Wine Enthusiasts group that if you RSVP "YES" and are a "NO SHOW" without calling or emailing me prior to the event you will be withdrawn from the group if it happens three times in a row.
Let's all agree if you RSVP "Maybe" you are most likely NOT coming and I won't reserve a place for you or wait for you unless you contact me or change your RSVP to a "Yes" at least one hour prior to the event. That way it gives me a chance to decide either to attend or not.
If you enjoy great food and wine events and you live in the Southeast Valley, then you have found the right meetup group. My Wine Helper represents many local Arizona wineries and we just added a Sonoma, California winery partner. We gather several times a month at restaurants and wine shops to provide members with affordable, educational events. We also conduct members only private events usually at a members home. We welcome wine enthusiasts of all levels of knowledge. We look forward to meeting you at our next event.
