What we're about

Let's get together to share recipes, learn new cooking techniques, enjoy each other's company and enjoy great food! I'd like to get together for potlucks, BBQs, dinner parties and more! We can check out local restaurants as well. I love to cook and dine out and would love to meet people in the area with similar interests.

(free) ЯƎVƎЯƧƎ ƧƆAVƎИӘƎЯ HUИT. Yes. That's Right! A REVERSE SCAVENGER HUNT !!!

This a "Reverse Scavenger Hunt" OR . . . to get nice and twisted about it
A ЯƎVƎЯƧƎ ƧƆAVƎИӘƎЯ HUИT

And even more perversely reversed . . . TИUH ЯƎӘИƎVAƆƧ ƎƧЯƎVƎЯ

Now that you are completely confustulated from all the wonky letters . . .

The reality is it's just a whole damn lot of fun no matter what it's called or how it's spelled.

The origin is based off a Summer Camp Game called a "Dutch Auction" (you can google this, I am not making it up). It's not an auction, and it's also not Dutch either.

We are taking this OnLine and for adults. . .. Think of our event a Summer Camp For Adults. This event is for all the folks that want to get out and feel some element of normal again . . . but can't. AND it is Safe 'n' Online . . . BUT is it NOT like your normal zoom. After all . . . it's all reversed, upside-down and backwards. Y'know . . .what the last two years have been.

We have done this twice on the group before since the pandemic and it's over the top fun. We don't do it often . . . When we do . . . it's not to miss.

Everything you need to play and participate is in your home or imagination.

*You will be broken into teams. (it's more fun that way)
*Each team will then be asked for an item.
*Each team will then have a set amount of time to root through your own home to find it and bring it back. Or you might just take the computer or phone with you on the hunt and cut out the bringing back part.
*If multiple people on the team bring it back that's extra points.
**Bonus Points will be given for creativity.
***Negative Points given when you argue with the points giver.
****Bonus Points given for chicanery

Either way . . . when time is up then points are given for that round. And we move to the next (after suitable laughter too).

After all the rounds are done . . .
We count points up and there will be prizes for the winners (we will show the prizes before we start).

The cost for the ЯƎVƎЯƧƎ ƧƆAVƎИӘƎЯ HUИT?

FREEƎƎЯꟻFREEƎƎЯꟻFREEƎƎЯꟻFREEƎƎЯꟻFREEƎƎЯꟻFREEƎƎЯꟻ

Yes. AND THERE ARE PRIZES.

Team with most points will win $5 Gift Card to your choice of Amazon, Starbucks, Big Lots, Goodwill etc . . . (for each team member to 5 of ya)
AND The winning team will recieve ONE comp to our Wine Trip. Amongst yourselves you can divide it how you wish (those who would not want to go can hand it off to those that do). So you your other team members give you thiers . . .you go for free. Or worst case you get about $42 off.
That's not so bad for a free night of having fun. If you are not into wine or our wine trip? Come for bragging rights when you win.

And you will have a $h*t ton of fun too.

Links to the wine trips at the bottom

This event has a 100% guarantee of fun. IF you have NO FUN . . . we will re-fun you.

Come and meet some fab people and laugh with (or at) them.

THIS EVENT REPLACES OUR NORMAL MONTHLY NEW MEMBER MIXER!!
Our normal monthly New Member Mixer on pause due to Pandemic.

Paird with this evnet is ALSO a REVERSE WINE TASTING.
Very simple. We call come to the table or screen with whatever we have at home. AND we take turns. You share what you have and give a taste and share what notes tickle your senses.

SCHEDULE
6 to 7 PM Open arrival and schmooze and talk and chat. Pre-Tasting
7 to 8 PM ЯƎVƎЯƧƎ WIИE TAƧTIИӘ
8 to 10 PM ЯƎVƎЯƧƎ ƧƆAVƎИӘƎЯ HUИT
10 to 11PM is the Wine Down with more open schmooze, talk and chat.

This is all "perfect world" schedule. The reality is will have to take about 10 mins to corral y'all to some semblance of order at one time or another.

Then we will start the game and all order will be forsaken.

And then when we blackmail and bribe with points . . . things will get back into line.

Again . . . Thinks of this as Summer Camp for Adults.

This will be super fun and super special.

Don't Block Me In. About Cubism . . . Free! Art Adventure Zoom Soirée.

Howdy!! We started doing this Artsy Zoom Thingy every Wed since about Jan, and took a break late in the year.

About this event . . .

All in all this will be a fun social evening where we accidentally learn something together.

This is all sounds great. How much does it cost?

Oh yes . . . The cost is FREE!

That's a bargain even at twice the price!!!!

So why not splurge and come and share your time with us.

For an online event hopefully you will feel as if you have visited far off places and times. And maybe even see yourself in the those places and scenes.

We have been watching other artsy fartsy things being done. They tend to be essentially a power point. When it says "lecture" you better run!! There is no dynamic discussion or engagement. No interaction and no social.
AND . . . Most of all . . you really don't visit a place or meet the other people.

Just like anything else we do . . . ours will be different.

We will come out the other side richer for the experience.

Yes. This does mean there is no canned script.

On the day of the event you will get an email 2 or 3 hours before more in-depth info of what covering and the zoom links.

For those not aware I do have classical art training, as well as years of working within the art industry with curators, conservators, collectors, artists, museums, studios, institutions etc. So we will make this all very worthwhile.

Join us in this Art Adventure Social Soirée. Make some friends while learning and sharing, and sharing some learning.

IF you went to any previous Art Soiree you do NOT need to re-fill-out the google form.
