  • This location is shown only to members

~~~Note there's a $5 entry option for those that want to join us after 8:30pm. See event info below.~~~

Hey Winos!

It's that time of year again....break out your head-to-toe white attire for this one...casual, dressy, whatever you feel like...as long as it's WHITE! We've got the entire outdoor lounge area reserved for this private party, in addition to shared poolside space. During this event we'll be enjoying a variety of tasty appetizers, generous discounts on wine, beer and cocktails, and DJ Sachamo will be spinning at 8pm to get those booties shaking! Not to mention, we'll be holding our biggest raffle to date (grand prize valued at $850), and offering discounted transportation to/from the event. There are also firepits and space heaters to keep you warm after the sun goes down.

A variety of hosted appetizers will be provided and replenished in waves at 6, 7 and 8pm. We'll have TWO full satellite bars set up on the patio with the following drink specials (only honored at satellite bars) for the entire evening:

  • $6 glasses of wine
  • $6 domestic/imported beers
  • $8 well cocktails
  • $9 call cocktails
  • $3 sodas and $2 waters

Additional food items may be purchased from the wait staff, including roasted garlic hummus, confit chicken wings, trio of sliders and buttermilk calamari.

RAFFLE>>>> Each person will receive one raffle ticket upon entry. Additional tickets can be purchased for $1 each or 15 tickets for $10. A partial list of prizes includes:

AFTER PARTY>>>> To be respectful of the hotel guests, everyone will need to head inside by 10pm and the party can continue in the inside lounge/bar area.

EVENT FEE>>>> The event fee covers appetizers, tax and gratuity, rental and set-up fees, raffle prizes and all other costs associated with this event. Staggered pricing has been set up to reward the early-bird winos who allow us to provide an accurate headcount.

  • $14 - RSVP by 10pm on Wednesday, August 8th
  • $18 - RSVP by 12pm on Saturday, August 18th
  • $20 - at the door (if there's room. Sorry...event is full...see option below)
  • $5 entry fee after 8:30pm (food and raffle will be over but you will have access to the private space, drink specials and a limited food menu. No need to RSVP...just show up!

PARKING INFO>>>> By validating your ticket at the main bar or at the restaurant's hostess stand, winos will get 3 free hours of self parking in the parking structure adjacent to the entrance, or discounted valet parking for just $4/hour for the first 3 hours, then $7/hour.

OPTIONAL TRANSPORTATION>>>> For those of you who live further away or don't want to deal with parking or driving after having a few, Open Road Services is green friendly, cheaper & roomier than a taxi, and clients can legally drink in their vehicles. They are offering 25% off transportation services from ALL areas of San Diego. Please call [masked] to make your reservation and use the passcode "WINOS".

If necessary, this event will be limited to 125 Winos R Us members and their guests. We hope you can join us for this very special evening. Check out pictures from our white parties in 2011 and 2010 to see how the winos rock the white!

CHEERS!

  • Karen

    Check-in at the patio entrance in the main bar area of Arterra restaurant. If you are bringing guests, they will be listed under your name as a +1 so if they arrive before/after you they should give your name. There are NO at-the-door spots available but all are welcome to join us after 8:30pm. Please remember the food is coming out in waves at 6, 7 and 8pm. Looking forward to seeing how everyone rocks the white tonight! :)

    And sold

  • Tina

    So...I called Open Road and they offered me a price of $50 one way (from Point Loma area) for up to 7 people. That's like $7 a piece (+tip) Problem is that if we want to return at different times, it's still $50 a trip. He said they could have about 3 cars making that run for the return trip but it may be difficult to coordinate. I am super flexible on time as long as I am not driving so if anyone is remotely interested in trying to set this up let me know a.s.a.p. Otherwise I'll need to be on my best behavior to drive the distance :0

    Ticket available, email me at mikehaaren @gmail

    I'm getting lots of emails from people begging me to let them or their guests into this event. We can't open up more spots because the food had to be prepaid earlier this week and we're not allowed to add to the food order within 72 hours of an event (hotel catering red tape). However, there's plenty of overflow space on the pool deck, so we will be letting people join the party AFTER 8:30pm for $5 so the waitlisters and those of you who want to bring additional guests can take advantage of this option. The raffle will be over and the food will most likely be gone by then, but they'll have access to the drink specials, the private lounge area and the rest of the party goers. More winos = more fun

      Please contact Karen about taking my prepaid spot.

      Will do, thank you.

      August 17, 2012

  • Tina

    Is anyone considering the Open Road Services option? I live in Point Loma and would prefer not to drive home after a great evening. Wouldn't mind "carpooling" this way but not sure how it would work if people want to leave at different times. I will call them and see what's up with that scenario if anyone is interested.

    August 16, 2012

  • Denise

    Hi all! I will be attending the event. wahoo! but I have a guest that wants to go and I don't know how to add +1 to the wait list. If anyone is not able to attend at the last minute, please let me know!! Thanks much....

    What does it mean to be on a waiting list? sorry new to meetup

    August 15, 2012

  • Karen

    I don't have the wine list yet for the $6 glasses but the hotel is looking to move a lot of their wine inventory so this event is perfect timing. We'll be getting some GREAT deals on some GREAT wines...woohoo!

    So, is there a prize for the wino who survives the night with no red wine spots on their oh-so-white attire? I have no chance!

    1 · August 13, 2012

  • Denise

    Karen, Sandy or Michael - is there an attendance limit? The page does not say how many spots are left. I see that you can also pay at the door. Thanks!!

    August 12, 2012

    • Karen

      Hi Denise...the event posting states that we're limited to 125 attendees (for the private lounge area) and that at-the-door payments will be accepted if there's room.
