Summer Sangria!

  • Jun 14, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Daniel Elacqua's Apartment

Fellow Wine Lovers:

We have a few announcements to make, so please read this entire e-mail.

First, I would like to invite everyone to my apartment on June, 14th to enjoy the wonders of Sangria.  Please bring a bottle of either (1) Sangria, (2) Chardonnay, or (3) pinot noir. We will have two big bats of Sangria going (one red and one white).  The Chardonnay or Pinot Noir will be added to the bats.

My apartment is located at 3719 N Broadway #2R, Chicago, IL 60613. Unfortunately, the property management company is currently doing some construction in the back yard.  For this reason, I am only announcing the party for 30 people right now; however, if they complete construction I will move the party to the back yard and open up the invitation to 100 people.   Please make sure to check.

Please keep reading...

Unfortunately, I just found our that the annual July promontory point hosts are not able to host the party this year.  Obviously, we still want to have the party; however, I am looking for help with it.  If you are able to volunteer time, money, or food (or wish to host this party in your space) for this party please e-mail me at [masked] ASAP.

Thank you as always to all our members and volunteers!

-Daniel

    Looking forward to tomorrow! About to go get the wine and fruit for the Sangria base now! If your on the wait list, please make sure to change your reply to Yes. For some reason it didn't automatically move the wait list people to yes when I changed the number that can attend this meet up.

    It was actually the backyard, which is a great place for these events. Great & plentiful sangria and a wonderful way to catch up with old friends and make a few new ones.

    There are too many plus #s. (nearly half of the attendance listing!) I understand bringing significant others or a friend but people should join the group if it's the same plus #s each time.

    • Daniel E

      Chad, we allow people to bring guests because it helps grown and keep the group diverse. I agree if they are bringing the same person over and over that person should just join and RSVP themselves; however, everyone is allowed to bring +1's. I fully hope to open this party up to more people and hope all will be able to come.

      Perhaps I did not make myself clear??? I'm not against plus ones, twos, etc. Though when members keep plus one the same guests over and over then it's time to draw the line especially when the pluses equal to nearly half of the group maximum for a particular event, which was the case today. I'm glad to see we have such respectful members who adjusted their plus ones to allow for other members to participate.
