UPDATE - where we'll be, directions/parking, map:
I plan to scope out and save us a space in front of one of the 2 entertainment stages. I will post the exact locale on this meetup page. But when you get there, just look for a bunch of red helium balloons...that's where our blankets will be laid out! I'll be there at 11am when Wine in the Wood opens. The weather forecast looks good - sun and 70 degrees. :)
While there of course will be food vendors, you are allowed to bring coolers, picnic baskets etc with food/water. I will have blankets down, but you may want to bring your own and perhaps a LOW back chair.

Wine in the Woods map:
Come out and meet/hang with other Gen Xers... enjoy some wine, music, great weather, and good conversation. :) Hope to see everyone there!
Join us on Saturday, May 17 anytime from 11 AM-6 PM for the 22nd annual "Wine in the Woods," the premier wine festival taking place in Columbia, MD!
This year’s event features 30 wineries, 24 food vendors, 50 artisans, 12 musical acts and free wine seminars. Whether you’re a serious wine taster with a refined palate or here to simply enjoy the best our region has to offer, Wine in the Woods has something for everyone. It has become a tradition and a mainstay for the local community and beyond for more than 2 decades.
Come and join us for this fun, outdoor celebration in the picturesque setting of Symphony Woods. Enjoy a spring afternoon with fellow Gen Xers... relax on a blanket or a comfy chair under a canopy of budding trees sipping your favorite wine from a souvenir glass & listening to live musical entertainment (jazz, blues, pop-country, 80s). Taste the different wines of one of the many regional wineries, amble through artisans’ displays, try some of the delicious food of local vendors or enjoy your own picnic snacks that you bring, and learn wine tidbits from one of the wine demos.
If you are up for a laid back afternoon hanging out with other Gen Xers while enjoying good conversation, live music and some wine in the woods on Sat, May 17th, all you have to do is RSVP on this meetup page and then purchase your ticket! Then, just show up whenever you are ready! And, bonus, I'll be there early to put down some blankets to save a good spot for our group where the live music is happening. Festival is 11am - 6pm. Gates open at 10:30 for advance ticket purchasers; otherwise 11am. Tickets (wine tasting): $32 advanced purchase; $40 at gate ($25 "designated drivers" for 4 non-alcoholic drinks)
This is the first combined meetup for the DC & Baltimore Gen X Travel Clubs groups. So come out and meet your fellow Gen Xers from the Baltimore-Washington region!
