Meetup RSVP's must be confirmed on eventbrite at http://uncorkedmichae...­ The event is with Denver Wine Meetup and 5 other groups.

Over 75% of the tickets have been sold! Baur's has a very spacious room for our group and the place is beautiful. For those of you waiting to see the weather before committing...it's going to be SUNNY on Thursday. Please note, no tickets will be sold at the door as we will be at capacity.
Meetup RSVP's that have not been confirmed by payment on eventbrite will be moved to "NO" on Tuesday night.

Winemaker Change for Thursday: Michael and David Winery is sending their winemaker Jeff Farthing who has a very interesting background in the science of viticulture including scientific papers on high sugar fermentation and work on some other prominent winemaking teams prior to Michael and David Winery. Derek Devries will not be able to make it out for this trip and Jeff is in the area for a function in the mountians. Please read about Jeff Farthing http://www.michaeldavidwinery.com/story/autobiography/jeff-farthing­ .....for the wine geeks and scientific types in the group, you'll find a winemaker who can answer very interesting questions about winemaking.

We have posted the wine and food pairing menu on the meetup and below. We are not only pouring "Sinfully Delicious" wines but Baur's is providing a CULINARY DELIGHT!

Our winemaker events are a great opportunity to visit with the winemaker (without the travel expense to California) in addition to socializing and making new friends. Please sign up now to secure your spot at Payment Link: http://uncorkedmichae...­ (this is the only RSVP we count)

The dinner menu for the 5280 Restaurant week menu is also posted below and on the meetup. Please RSVP on eventbrite or email me if you want to change your RSVP. Restaurant week is a madhouse for all Denver Restaurants. So treat yourself NOW....after our wine party to 5280 at Baur's with 35-40 new friends. It's one of the best menus presented out of the entire 5280 restaurant week portfolio and a deal. 3 courses, $26.40

I have also copied the info on our February event below. Hope to see you on Thursday Feb 10!
