Since this is our first meeting we'll pick a date that is convenient to the most people. It will be on a Thursday, May 9 at 7:15 PM.
NOOK in West LA is a very accommodating place. We'll order their style of global comfort food off the menu and share the tab. Dinner with tax and tip is usually $45-55. They will waive corkage for us.
The purpose of the group is to engage with others more deeply than the usual wine group. Small events of 8-12 guests work well because one bottle gives everyone a good sized taste and you can actually talk to all the people at event.
Since this is our first meeting, the wines can be lower mid-level. This generally means $30-50 in current value. Experienced winos know what this means: Never bring a bottle you are not excited about drinking yourself. We need not share expensive wine all the time and won't without consensus. But we will always share really good wine of interest.
First on the agenda is to meet and get to know each other and drink good wine. Second is to briefly discuss other venues and wine selections and drink good wine. Events can be more upscale sometimes and less at others. The wine must always be good, and some events will require great bottles. And third on the agenda is to drink good wine and have even better conversations.
Remember, the group is about More Than Wine.
Looking forward to meeting you all soon.
