"Battle of the Bottles"

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • laura's house

They say you can't judge a book by its cover, or, in this case, a wine by its bottle, but we're going to try. Join us Saturday, Feb. 2 for a different kind of wine tasting. Wines will be judged based on the appearance of their packaging -- pretty labels, unique bottles, strange names -- just bring a wine that LOOKS pretty, and we'll all cross our fingers that it tastes as good as it looks.

I will make some appetizers, but feel free to bring a snack to share. Of course, if you want to be in the contest (there will be prizes!) then bring a bottle of wine.

My address will be emailed out a few days before the party, so please RSVP if you plan to attend. Hope to see you there!

    I believe there is one spot open since Linda is not coming and she has not changed her RSVP so someone from the waiting list can come I believe right Laura.

    1 · February 2, 2013

    • Laura

      Yes, they can. Hopefully someone will see this.

      February 2, 2013

  • Sandra B.

    I've got my bottle picked out! Question - do these events typically start on time? I know that most of my friends when they say 6pm they really mean 7 or 8pm, ha!

    February 2, 2013

    • Laura

      Well, I want to judge the bottles early so we can get drinking, so yes, get there closer to 6:30.

      February 2, 2013

    • JR B.

      Come early drink longer ....

      1 · February 2, 2013

  • Linda J.

    I have a conflict for this evening - please offer my spot to someone on the wait list - hopefully will make the next event - thanks!

    February 2, 2013

    • Zoila R

      Linda u will need to change ur rsvp to no so some one can move up. Laura the sun is out n snow melting so things should cleaup. It's already melting off my patio.

      February 2, 2013

  • Laura

    I am not sure on weather the rest of the day, but if the roads don't improve please be safe. I will be at my house and you are all welcome, but right now it is scary as hell out there.

    February 2, 2013

  • Laura

    I have to admit, everyone, with all the hub-bub and excitement over this meetup, I am really hoping you will all enjoy yourselves. Lots of pressure here. Thank goodness there will be wine.

    January 31, 2013

    • Christi W.

      Don't you worry a bit. Everything is going to be just fine. Good wine, good food, good people= good times. Can't wait :)

      January 30, 2013

    • Zoila R

      Would have loved to but i went yesterday with my daughter. .

      January 31, 2013

  • Stephanie F.

    Hey everybody on the wait list!! Let's plan to have the same party at my house in Franklin! Same time, same date, same theme JUST A DIFFERENT PLACE. You can email me directly to chat and for my address. [masked].

    2 · January 29, 2013

    • Laura

      No, I am glad we are all talking. I have been asking for feedback for years and very few people ever say anything. I like it when people are active and want to stuff, especially host! It is all good :)

      January 30, 2013

    • JR B.

      I say way to step up Stephanie ! Sounds like the next hostess just stepped up woohoo . When is it Stephanie ? We love active members and I just know we'll live you

      1 · January 30, 2013

  • Stephanie F.

    Laura my intentions were just to have a get together for us on the wait list!

    1 · January 30, 2013

    • Laura

      I know, Stephanie. And I totally appreciate it. It's actually a good idea. I just don't want us to both plan for huge groups and then end up with two groups of not-so-many people. However, I have no problem with folks who are still on the wait list going over to your house. The more the merrier. (Just when you review the meetup on Sunday, don't mark Stephanie down if my bathroom's not clean LOL).

      January 30, 2013

    • Laura

      Do you want me to email the waiting list your info? Send me an email if you do.

      January 30, 2013

  • Nancy

    • Laura

      January 28, 2013

    • Nancy

    Make sure to sign up for the waiting list because we will probably have cancellations. Also, if you RSVPed yes and your plans change, you MUST change it on here so someone on the waitlist can come. (There will be an email about our "no-show policy" coming soon.)
