Please only join this meetup if you are really going to participate as we only want serious members that match the above intent.

3. Agree to the following legal disclaimer, and to abide by the RSVP and Guest Policy.

4. Organize an event at least once a year. All members of this meetup will be promoted to Event Organizer so that they can fulfill the above vision. Those couples that participate more will be invited to special events and be upgraded to assistant organizer.

DANCING! LIVE MUSIC!! FRIDAY WINE DOWN!!!

Matthews Winery

OK - Here It Is! Let's GO! Friday Wine Down Is Back! Come out and help Monica & I celebrate the first anniversary of the meetup event that changed our lives! Special Musical Guest Hall Pass! These folks are a female fronted band known for blending dynamic vocals and sound. Winner of the 425 Magazine Best Local Cover Band. They feature rock and pop hits with harmonies that zing - No backing tracks here, They've played for the Seahawks, Bite of Seattle, the Triple Door, Chihuly Glass Garden, McCaw Hall and the Hard Rock Cafe. Come for the music and wine and give yourself a Hall Pass! The dance music starts at 6:30 and can go as late at 10:00. For folks that would like to purchase their dinner at the event, The Peach & The Pig Food Truck will be on hand. Chef Nate has brought his techniques that he honed working in restaurants and gastropubs in Seattle and Georgetown to the streets. There is NO COVER CHARGE for this event. It can get busy though, so if you want a chair to call your own arriving early is recommended! We'll have a large table indoors near the band and the bar - Look for the Meetup Sign! As always, this is a Free Event! There is No Cover Charge! Free Parking & No Drink Minimum! This event is cross-posted on several area Meetup groups! Come and meet new friends! If you like a less loud, less crowded, less inebriated place to dance and socialize, Friday Wine Downs at Matthews Winery are a great choice. There will be seating in areas for folks that enjoy good live music and good in-person conversations. The public area has even more room for us. Matthews has earned a strong reputation for really exceptional wines. Two of their recent releases were rated 94+ and 95+ by Wine Spectator Magazine. Wines by the glass and the bottle will be available for purchase. Please be mindful that state liquor laws do limit the consumption of adult beverages to only the wines offered for sale by the winery. If you have ideas to share on how we can make this even more of a kick-ass event, you're welcome to email me or ring me on my cell. Steve Proudlock [masked][masked](c) Please - No Text Messages

Read the following changes to the group
Needs a date and time

to be detremined in Bellevue Wa.

Hi everyone, This is to let you all know that we have changed the 40 Something Couple's Group to the 40 Something Foodie Group. We will be planning different restaurants and Happy Hour places where we try new foods. This will not be restricted to couple's only, we will include anyone who is really interested in learning about new foods & cultures. We will set this up so that everyone will be able to set up their own dining ideas and be in charge of their event. There will also be a strict rule that is you RSVP yes and do not show up to two events you will be removed from the club. Most events will have a limit of how many can attend and it is imperative that you show up as reservations will probably be required. I hope everyone in the 40 Something Couple group will still stay with us as we think you are an awesome group of people.
