New Meetup: Charleston Wine + Food Festival

From: Cindy C.
Sent on: Friday, September 4, 2009 2:47 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Just Us Girls!

What: Charleston Wine + Food Festival

When: March 4,[masked]:00 AM

Price: $780.00 per person

Where:
My boat: "Channel Surfer" on dock B
Charleston Harbor Marina Patriot's Point
Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464

I will be purchasing tickets A.S.A.P. to selected events at the 2010 Charleston Wine + Food Festival, that will take place from Thursday, March 4th to Sunday, March 7th (we will be returning home Monday, March 8th). I will purchase them together (so we will be seated together) once we have four of us signed up. This group of four can stay for free on my boat from Thursday to Monday. There is a hotel at the marina if all the spots are taken, or if you are attending with other family members and friends not in this Meetup group, or if you are staying for a shorter or longer amount of time (those who would like to stay on the boat must be staying for the entire time and attending the same events together), and we could all hook up together whenever possible.

I just attended the launch party, and many events are already sold out, including my top three choices for the wine dinners: McCrady's, Charleston Grill, and Tristan (we did this one last time). Don't worry, last year S.N.O.B was sold out when I registered, and this year it is still available (as of now). There is a new event that looks interesting called the Wadmalaw Farm to Table Excursion, but it is also sold out! Next year it is important that those who would like to attend go to the launch party with me so we can sign up there (it had great food, wine, music and was at a beautiful new facility - all for only $10).

These are the events we will be going to with this Meetup:
Thursday
7:00 p.m.-10:00 Opening Night Party
Friday
11:00 a.m.-11:30 Opening Ceremonies
12:00-2:00 Gullah Lunch
6:30 p.m. Wine Dinner (hopefully at S.N.O.B.)
Saturday
10:00 a.m.-1:00 Culinary Village and Grand Tasting
3:00 p.m.-5:00 Pinot Envy Uncorked (served with local seafood)
9:00 p.m.-12:00 Bubbles & Sweets...with a twist
Sunday
11:00 a.m. Gospel Brunch (we need to pick a restaurant - all are currently available)
5:00 p.m. BBQ, Blues & Brew

These were the time slots that worked best together, and many of these events were my favorites from last time. I have added them up including service charges to come up with the $780 total.
