Winos R Us 6 Year Anniversary Party

  • Oct 20, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey Winos!

Join us as we raise our glasses to 6 years of winolicious good times with all the fabulous winos and winettes we've had the pleasure of meeting, and look forward to meeting! The brand spanking new Hiatus Lounge and Pool Deck, located in the newly remodeled Hotel La Jolla, is our host for this private Winos-only celebration.

We'll be enjoying generous happy hour pricing for the duration of our event, which means until closing time at midnight!!! Their happy hour menu includes $5 house wines, well spirits, selected draft beers, house sangria and 2 different cocktails (No Way Out and Too Late to Apologize). We'll also have $5 Mediterranean-inspired appetizers, including char sui sliders, watermelon salad, stuffed piquillo gratin, prosciutto wrapped jalapenos, spicy pepper bacon, ceviche and $1.50 raw oysters.

PARKING INFO>>> There's free street parking in the neighborhood. For hotel parking, special event valet parking is required, which has been graciously discounted to $7 per car for our group (normally $10).

Please note that you must sign up through this site to get your name on the list. No payments will be accepted at the door. The event fee gets you access to the private space and all-night happy hour specials, and covers the associated costs. If necessary, this event will be limited to 145 in attendance. Members are welcome to bring a guest but will be limited to one guest per member due to the capacity limit.

We look forward to seeing you there...CHEERS!

    Its probably not letting you rsvp because they're closed. My guess. Rule is: RSVP for our big events early. We're so much fun, everyone wants in.

    October 20, 2012

  • Marta

    It says one spot left.

    October 20, 2012

  • Marta

    I'd like to rsvp but it does not let me.

    October 20, 2012

  • Michael M.

    Let me make sure that we are very clear about this. If you have not RSVP'd by now. There are no spots left. Do not show up to the event. Crashing the event is grounds for removal from the group. If you were having an issue with the RSVP on your computer. You should have brought this to our attention at that time. Once again if you are not on the list. Please do not just take it upon yourself to show up to the event.

      It says one spot left.

      October 20, 2012

    RSVP'd yesterday 3 times yesterday, but the link to PayPal didn't work. Since I was unable to pay online, I'll pay tonight.

    hi Karen;

    Darn it, but I would like to come, but I haven't confirmed my plans yet. Can I still get in?

    My Grandfather had a wine cellar -he'd make 1,000 gallons per year-and I'd help, as a kid, it was fantastic-----he'd use the concord grapes for a dry red and muscat grapes for a dry white. They were delicious-made the old fashioned way and aged in oak barrels.

    October 20, 2012

  • Karen

    I will not be responding to any more personal emails or online comments regarding how many spots are left, asking for preferential treatment, how much parking is, etc. Please read the event posting for necessary info...it's all there. As of this morning we hit max capacity for this event and even opened up a few more spots. So if you didn't RSVP (in the last 10 days since this event was posted) then we'll see you another time. Thanks!

    You guys are right. We had an event at Clay's on the to floor years ago. They just completed renovations and haven't had their grand opening yet. We're getting hooked up :) oh and the hosted happy hour from 5-6pm is only for hotel guests.

    I believe we had an event here once a few years ago didn't we? Looks like they did a great job with the patio, and Kimpton hotels have a hosted happy hour daily from 5-6pm in the lobby. I've been to a bunch of their hotels and they are nice.

    $5 food and drink menu items have been updated
