International #CabernetDay

It's that time of year again. International #CabernetDay is right around the corner! The past few years we've met up at restaurants or bars and had formal tastings, but since we've had so many meetups lately that cost money, let's just do something casual at my house. Obviously, the wine theme is Cabernet grapes. I will have some finger foods, but please bring a bottle of wine or a snack to share. When you RSVP, let us know if you are bringing food or wine to make sure we have plenty of both!

      Well, your meatball recipe is the same as mine, but yours were better. I usually don't cook mine 5 hours, but I will in the future!

    I think we need to do a meetup where you bring a bottle and a dish and copies of the recipe to share . We could all leave with a boatload if new recipes...and sip a few new wines in the process!

    The wines were great, the food was great, and the fellowship was great. You guys make it sooo easy to be leader. Thanks so much for being so awesome and helpful. Apparently Merlot Day is coming up on Oct. 10 but that's the day after I get back from Disney, so I am not sure I can maneuver it.

      I would be happy to host; my home isn't large but if it's a pleasant evening we could spill out onto the deck and yard.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
