What we're about
ATLANTA GAY WINOS is for GAY MEN--a WINE & FOOD TASTING & SOCIAL GROUP that is an Atlanta spin off of the main GAY WINOS LOS ANGELES group that was launched in April 2010. Our plan is to host 2 or more wine or food related outings every month. Our group is for GAY MEN who would like to learn more about the local ATLANTA wine & food scene, network with other professionals and meet new friends. We visit local wine bars or restaurants and events throughout the greater Atlanta area on weeknights or weekends and occasionally get together at members' homes.
GAY WINOS also plans occasional visits to wine bars, restaurants, happy hours, wine festivals or unique events that integrate wine and/or food into the mix, but run the gamut. If you view our LA chapter's "past events" section (at Gay Winos.com) which shows the types of diverse things we do including historical tours, outdoor canyon hikes, watching female roller derby, movie nights and more. To offer more variety we will occasionally place emphasis on beer, happy hour or just food offerings. And since our group is predominately a social group, you do NOT have to drink alcohol at any of our events to participate--though you will certainly in most cases be exposed to it.
Our membership is varied and open to Gay men between 25 years old and "youthfully" older. (FYI--at member hosted parties in their private homes--then female and non-gay guests of the host are welcome to attend--but otherwise our events are targeted ONLY to Gay men). We only request that you do NEVER consume more than the legal amount of alcohol then attempt to drive after any of our events. It is each individual members responsibility--not that of our group or event hosts. If you unintentionally do consume too much wine then please ask another group member for a ride home or call an Uber, Lyft or taxi ride. We want to make sure our members are safe and sound!
If you want to suggest group outing ideas please feel free to do so. WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU PLEASE HONOR YOUR WORD AND DO NOT R.S.V.P. UNLESS YOU ARE 99% SURE YOU CAN ATTEND AN EVENT. Welcome to GAY WINOS--and as the late jazz diva Shirley Horn used to say "Here's to Life, Here's to Love...Here's to YOU!"
