It's 2014! Let's Start "Wining" at Mazzaro's

This will be the first of monthly wine tastings and lunch at one of my favorite places:  Mazzaro's Market (plus I need to replenish my wine vault.)   It's a feast for the palate. This Saturday's wine tasting will feature wines from South America, California and Washington. There will be cheeses to sample as well. As we've done in the past, we can adjourn to the patio to enjoy a new wine discovery, lunch purchased from the deli, bread, cheese, olives or whatever we want while enjoying the gurgling fountain and the company of friendly folks. Save room for gelato! If you've never been to this friendly, family run Italian market, you'll be in for a treat.

I'll be wearing a blue shirt and will be holding a wine goblet :-) and will email my phone number the day before the event.

    We should get a pic of the wine bar someday.

    Here's a short of the greatest wine tasting movie ever --- Our wine steward had never heard of this, was very anxious to see it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgnBhqJJFo8#t=1

    I truly enjoyed meeting new and old Dining Out friends. I learned some things from this first Wine Tasting of 2014 and future tasting events will begin at 12:15-12:30. It should be less crowded in the tasting room and patio. Also, I need to eat breakfast in the morning so the wine won't make so loopy! Thanks for a great time, everyone, special smiles to Dorian and Dennis for moving tables and chairs so we could dine in closer proximity to each other on the patio.

    Hope you guys don't mind, but I'll probably bring my "little sister" (I'm part of the BBBS org) with me. I love to show her food life and options outside of McDonalds! We may arrive later than 11:30, but I'll find you guys.

      Well, my little sister is spending the day with her aunt tomorrow, so I'll be coming solo.... which means I can join in the wine tasting!. Hmmm, what shall I try? Red or White? LOL!

    Emailed my cell number to attendees as of 7:30 p.m. Friday. If you don't see us in the wine room after 12:30, we'll probably be out on the patio. Feel free to call or text me.

    I am happy to be coming to this meetup. It is my first with this group. Where exactly do we park and do we have a place reserved for lunch there? I look forward to meeting and seeing you all there!

      Megan, there is plenty of parking in the lots around Mazzaro's (on 23rd Street, the back of the store.) It's VERY informal for lunch. We'll taste some wine and then each of us will select lunch items from the grocery or in-house deli. It's first-come, first-served for the patio tables....can get a little hectic trying to grab a free table and we might not sit together at first. But we always manage to get together and have a great time. If you're looking for a more organized dining adventure, you might try one of our other events. I would hate for you to be disappointed.

      We also have so much fun sharing treasures that we found in the market, from the cheeses and fresh baked breads to the olives. Yummy!

    Thanks, I am going to join you then. My New Year's resolution is to be more active with this group. I am tired of hibernating and the one event I did attend I had a good time and met some great people. Look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday. I am inviting my sister to join us.

    Mazzaro's is one of the few places I know to be close to a consistently perfect venue. Just can't pass it up. A great place to bring a friend.
