Wine Tasting & Pot Luck

New Year's Eve -  Part One!

 

Let's start the New Year right by joining me at my Foxboro home for wine-tasting and a potluck dinner.   After dinner, we'll head on over to the Holiday Inn in Mansfield for a night of dancing to some fabulous bands (see separate event posted - if you plan on joining us for both events, please RSVP in both places).

Since this is being held in a private home, you must have met me in the past at a Trekking Gourmets event in order to attend.

Space is limited since my house is not big!

When you RSVP, please indicate what type of dish you will bring, so we don't end up with 10 lasagnes!

Also, I'm thinking we could select wines from one particular country or region, etc.  If you like this idea, please include a suggestion when you RSVP. Members will be responsible for bringing one bottle each.

Food List

  • Bottled water -Beth
  • Appetizer TBD - Kate
  • Cheese Plate - Jerry
  • Stuffed Mushrooms - Jill
  • Boneless Buffalo Wings - Denise
  • Mini Meat balls - Paula
  • Green Tossed Salad - Hope
  • Main Dish - Jon

  • Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice - Joe
  • Spinach Pie - Ann Marie
  • London broil in Mushroom sauce - Donna
  • Berry Pie (Maybe) - Sandy
  • Dessert - Vickie, one of Sandy's friends

Note: I do have one super-sweet hypo-allergenic, non-shedding 10 lb bichon frise who will think that everyone is coming over to play with her!  Just putting this out there in case you are not an avid fan of dogs.

    Thank you so much Sandy. I won't bring food but I would like to drop in, I love this group. Now I'm sorry I signed up for the dinner but it's already paid for.

    I will bring a large apple pie. I may have overdone it, I'm also signed up for the dinner at the hotel so I guess I won't be eating much at the house and will need to leave about 7:45.

    December 30, 2012

    • Sandy

      Barry, not to worry if you can't make it to my house. I know you were on the wait list and just got added. We'll have plenty of food/dessert if you decide not to attend, given you've signed up for dinner at the Holiday Inn.

      December 30, 2012

  • Sandy

    Details (my address, phone #, etc.) have been sent to "YES' RSVPs - check your email!

  • Sandy

    I will be getting cab service from my home to the Holiday Inn. While the cab company says I have to wait and call that day, I'd like to do so in the morning. As such, if yiu are interested in a cab ride there and back to my house then please reply "yes" to this conversation.

    December 29, 2012

    • Sandy

      Thanks Vickie! That's an idea too -if anyone else is driving from my home over to HI and can fit passengers, please post your offer here :)

      December 29, 2012

    • Denise

      Hi, I could drive from your house to HI and could take 3 people. Depending on how things go, I'll take a cab to the Courtard Marriott, which is 1.2 miles from the HI.

      1 · December 29, 2012

  • Jill L.

    Sandy, I'll need ur address again. Probably driving to HI from ur house then taking a cab from there home.

    December 29, 2012

    • Sandy

      Address and other details will be sent to yes RSVPs( like they always are) . Check your email tomorrow :)

      December 29, 2012

    • Jill L.

      Thanks! I'll be in Vickie's car.

      December 29, 2012

  • Kate

    I will bring appetizer stuff. Sorry this is so late in coming...

    December 29, 2012

  • Kate

    Yes, I would appreciate a cab ride... Thanks!

    December 29, 2012

  • Sandy

    I've increased the capacity of this event and let all wait-listed members in. Not enough room at my table for a "sit down" dinner, so we'll just have to be flexible. :)

    December 8, 2012

    • Sandy

      I am sorry but I have several mom meetup friends going and simply do not have room. I am also not sure if we have met? We have plenty of room at part 2 -dancing at the Holiday Inn. If you are interested in that let me know.

      December 29, 2012

    • Sandy

      Non, not mom!

      December 29, 2012

  • Matthew

    I would like to attend and bring something. The RSVP is closed, but may I be placed on the waiting list?

    December 29, 2012

  • Sandy

    OUr food list is shaping up nicely. If you have not yet signed up to bring anything, please take a look at the list and update your RSVP with a comment stating what you will be bringing. Looks like we could use some bottled waters, dessert and maybe a couple of apps.

    Sandy - have you decided what region / country the wine should come from ?

    December 22, 2012

    • Sandy

      The answers were all over the map (literally) on this one, so no regions! Just bring what you want. :)

    We have a larger crowd than I originally anticipated (have some other friends joining us as well). It's going to be imperative that we are corraled and ready to leave my home by 8:30 since I am organizing part 2 of this event for 3 meetups and over 50 people are expecting to see me there on time! :)

    1 · December 23, 2012

  • Sandy

    Per the event description, in order to attend, members must have met me at a previous event. All are welcome to join us for the dancing at the Holiday Inn later on.

    • Jerry R.

      I don't know if you remember me but we met in Wellfleet. I was there when you tried to start a fight at the bar and again when you had the wrong shoes for the seven mile hike back to the car. Can I come over and spill wine on your rugs?

      December 10, 2012

    • Sandy

      Jerry - laughing hysterical here!!! LOL

    December 8, 2012

  • Sandy

    I've created a food list above and will add to it as members have an idea about what they will bring. Looking forward to working off the calories after for a night of dancing at the Holiday Inn! :)
