6th Annual Red & White Holiday Party

Hey Winos!

It's that time of year again...the countdown is on for our 6th Annual Red & White Holiday Soiree. Last year we had a great mix of winos in semi-formal attire and fun holiday costumes. It's your choice...you can break out your most winolicious red and white threads or come casual with some holiday paraphernalia (Santa's hats, reindeer noses, antlers, lights bells, whatever!). We'll all be clinking glasses, embracing the season and spreading the winos holiday cheer.

Wang's is only a year old and they added a spacious top level just 2 months ago, which has been reserved for our PRIVATE party for up to 150 holiday winos...complete with our own private bar and bathrooms. Head upstairs to the VIP area and enjoy:

  • $3 happy hour Merlot and Chardonnay wines until 11pm (tasted and approved by Pocket Winette, Captain ShamWOW and Wine Diva)
  • a variety of tray passed, contemporary, Pan-Asian appetizers being served from 8-9pm

There's something for everyone here. Wang's an extensive, progressive wine menu of bubbles, sweet, dry, light, medium and full-intensity wines to choose from, ranging from just $4-11. There will also be domestic and imported beer, a variety of chilled and sparkling sake, and specialty cocktails such as Long Duck Dong, The Spicy Rack, Geisha and Wangalicious to name a few!

RAFFLE: Each person will receive one raffle ticket upon entry and additional tickets can be purchased for $1 each or 15 tickets for $10 at the door. We'll be adding to the raffle prize list as they come in, but here are just some of the prizes up for grabs:

PARKING: There's free street parking after 6pm but you're sure to get a spot in the huge parking structure just a block south on N. Park Way (between 29th and 30th) for a flat fee of $5 and it's all good if you pick up your car the next day (just in case!). Remember, members of Winos R Us get 25% off transportation from one of our sponsors, Open Road Services.

EVENT FEE: A staggered event fee has been set up to reward the early-bird, committed winos who allow us to provide a headcount to the venue by our deadline. The event fee covers our reserved VIP area, tray passed appetizers, tax and gratuity, happy hour wine specials for the duration of the event, raffle prizes and all other costs to make this party happen.

  • $13 if you RSVP by 10pm on Friday, Nov. 30th
  • $17 for RSVPs between Saturday, Dec. 1st and Friday, Dec. 7th
  • $20 at the door (if there's room)

Wang's is holding a Toys for Tots drive this night so if you want to bring an unwrapped toy to donate, you will get a wristband which entitles you for $5.50 "Toytinis" (a cosmopolitan) all night long! The more the merrier so feel free to bring some friends. Hope to see you there...CHEERS!

P.S. We've got a doozie of NYE party lined up in Del Mar. Complimentary welcome wine AND champagne toast, free parking, party hats/favors, $4-6 wine and beer all night...all for $25! There's also an optional 3-course dinner for $20pp, discounted hotel rooms and bottle service option for groups of 6-10. Check out the event posting for details!

    Hi David...this event was set up to require payment at the time of your rsvp. I see you're already on the list and are all paid up so you're good to go. I'm guessing maybe you were enjoying some wine when you signed up and just forgot you already paid haha. We'll see you there!

    You can come glammed up or goofy...whatever you prefer. As long as you're on the list, you will be let in so no worries. The only rules are to have fun, be comfy and show up with a smile :)
