In addition to helping run the Charlotte Wine Appreciation meetup group with Paula I also run a private by invitation only mostly social network in town called the Social Larks. It's filled with more wine lovers. Sometimes the Larks do joint events with the wine meetup group.
Most of the 750+ friends in the Larks are age 40-55 and divorced or widowed with kids but it ranges from age 30-60. There are also many couples in it as well. Couples and singles are welcome. Several I met first thru the wine meetup group. It is a great group of fun/cool people!
The Social Larks do 3-5 events a week year round mostly in South Charlotte. Cost is $25 a year per person or couple to join.We manage the group thru a combo of emails, Facebook, and LinkedIn at present and not thru Meetup. Soon our new web site will be up to replace all of those.
If you or someone you know is interested in trying out the Social Larks please contact me directly.
Thanks and hope to see you at upcoming wine related events!
This group will provide a way to hook into the local wine tastings around the area, and do some of our own. We will also do some social tastings, and perhaps even some private ones.
The goal will be to learn about wine, socialize and have fun. It does not matter if you know a lot or nothing, this will not be an intimidating group. There will be some social wine tastings and some more organized, guided tastings.
