Attention: Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Wine Party Moved to Saturday July 28-Highly Rated Australian att Celebrity Kitchen: Studio F
PLEASE NOTE YOUR CALENDAR, Our Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! event has been moved to Saturday July 28, 2012. PLEASE forward the info on our event to your friends! http://uncorked-eaglevale.eventbrite.com/
About the date change: Although our event's purpose is a wine and food pairing, it's also a "wine social mixer" and the dynamics of the event won't be pleasing to the members, the winemaker or the venue when we get a low turnout. After visiting with our winemaker and the venue, we all decided it would be best to change the date so we have a good turnout as we were not getting the normal sign up for our event like we do at other times of the year.
I am on top of the calendar of things going on in Denver yet, right after I announced this event, other events were announced for the same weekend that conflict with our event. In addition other summer events along with the Courage Classic and people's vacations seem to have taken a toll on sign up. In the 3 years we have been hosting events we have moved one event. It was also in July.
We are hoping with moving this to a date with less conflicts and having an extra week to sell tickets we will have our usual 90-100 attendees. Please, please invite your friends to our event. It's rare that we have the opportunity for a Saturday night event and members have requested this.
Feedback: I would also be open to feedback through the meetup about this event if you are not attending. (please click on email the organizer under my photo on the meetup). I am curious if it's just that you happen to not have an interest in Australian wine, if it's because the winery is not known to you or you rather attend events on a weeknight, or other reasons. This helps us to pick wineries, locations and dates that are pleasing to the members.
Thanks for your understanding. I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday July 28 with our highly rated Australian Winery from the Margaret River area: Eagle Vale Winery at Denver's celebrity kitchen, Studio F
Our next wine party is coming up very soon. We will have a Saturday Night event at one of Denver's hottest new venue's, Studio F on July 28! Studio F is Denver's Celebrity Chef Kitchen with world renown chef's traveling to Denver for "pop up" restaurant events. The wine and food pairing list for our even have been posted.
We are pleased to welcome Margaret River's area Australia winery Eagle Vale and winery owner Steve Jacobs as he presents his highly rated (90+ rated) wines from Western Australia.
BONUS: We will have a cooking demonstration presented by Chef/Owner James Mazzio to show off Studio F's cooking facility that they use with celebrity chefs and corporate parties.
We have 7 wines, 6 food pairings and 2 cooking demonstrations! For those of you who have never been to a high end cooking school, most of them charge $60-75.00 for a cooking demo event. So our event is a great value!
Members have been asking for a weekend event and we were able to make it happen. Sign up now....with a weekend event, tickets will go fast.
