We simply ask that our guests follow 3 simple rules. 1. Sign-up and show up to your first event in the first 30 days. 2. Sign-up & show up to one event every six months (we have 25+ a year) 3. Don’t be a Pain In The …. Do you agree to this?

I intend to enjoy life and am genuinely interested in learning new things. I take a fairly optimistic view about life and as result am at ease with myself and others. My golden rule is “make it fun”. I hope to bring to the group a friendly face and an open spirit.

What is your: name, age (within 5 years), marital status & occupation of you and your companion if you have one? We use this to create name tags. We do not want to know WHERE you work, just what you do!

I am a cost analyst with the U of MN and am old enough to know better but young enough not to care :)))

What is your knowledge of wine and what kind of wine do you like?

I am married, however my wife does not drink; so truth be told, I would likely be attending events alone.

We ask to know your groups so they must be viewable. If you are a member of a large number or a unregulated known high drama problem group you will NOT be approved. What groups are you a member of?

I am relatively new to the Meetup scene. So while I am a member of several groups (mostly outdoors type), I have only participated in three. Those three are MN State Parks Camping, Cross Country Skiing Twin Cities, and Friends of the Border Rout Trail. The other groups I am a member of are 35+ Coffee, Friends of BWCA Trail, MPLS/St Paul Backpackers, MN Walking, MN Arrowhead North Country Trail Hikers, MN Sierra Club, Outdoors & Snow Lovers, TC Hiking, TC Outdoor Adventures, and TC Paddlers.

We want ACTIVE members not just membership numbers. Please tell us specifically which event in the next month will be your first event. Lacking a specific event at http://www.meetup.com/wine-553 and your attendance you will not be approved.

I would love to join you for the Southern Hemisphere Wine Tasting at Bob & Vonnies event followed by the Tour of Hastings’ Alexis Baileys Vineyards :)))))


There are few things I enjoy more than a nice glass of wine. One of those things is enjoying a nice glass of wine with friends. I hope to make some new friends and enjoy a glass of wine with them. I also hope to learn a few things in the process.
