Hi, Boozers! Here's what you all have been waiting for: Wine in Downtown Silver Spring for all you Metro Boozers to venture out of the city & try something 'new'/unavailable in most of DC: By the Glass, Buy the Bottle, pop open with appetizers/Tapas (small plates) to share, or not, AnD THEN TAKE THE REST OF BOTTLE(S) HOME!!! A Wine Bar Cafe that has a store where you can grab a bottle or a few more, drink on-site AND then TAKE THE REST HOME!!!! We'll meet Ellesworth/Fenton @Adega, (* If you want to get to SS early and hang at Farmers' Market) near FreshFarms Markets', sometimes Whole Foods Market has a FREE COOKING CLASS DEMO & SAMPLES by @Cheff Egg/WFM (who plans & directs, & prepares foods for the Deli, Store & Hot / Cold Food Bars), and always incorporates interesting ingredients in the WFM recipes, including wine & Champagne, in cooking demo's (Whole Foods in MD don't carry wine or any booze of any kind/State Law), however, Cheff Egg also does monthly demo's & Classes for all regional WFM's from Annapolis, Baltimore, to Alexandria, Tennley, Rockville, P St, etc, where, in DC WFM's do sell lots of beer & wine selections, sometimes DIRT CHEAP, EVEN ORGANIC SULFITE-FRFEE, GLUTEN FREE, ETC. Then there are several options, Adega's FREE WINE TASTINGS CLASS to peruse the wine selections at the nearby 'bistro'-bar with Tapas, and/or checkout wines between Gar-E Kabab (Indian/Nepalese) with organic house wine selections even WFM would be proud & carfries, to Lebanese Taverna in downtown Silver Spring (2block radius, 2 blks fm Metro up hill/Wayne Ave). For Foodies, WFM has great deli & food bats, pepared foods section, and local tapas bistro-wine bar and surrounding ethnic restaurants are a sure bet to try new flavors: Lebanese Taberna, Thai, Viet Pho, Nando's, Austin, Eggs, Irish pubs, etc, all within 2 block radius, Thai Derm is #1 Thai food as rated by oldest dancer 85+ yr-young competitive ballroom dancer from Thailand, who says it's just like home-cooking, and Burmese, Nepalese/Indian are also nearby. Adega TAPAS bistro style wine bar & club, is really cool with Wood-fired oven pizzas for 1 or to share, soups salads sandwiches, artisan deli styles, are great compliment to their myriad, great varietal wine selection, even our Former Assistant Organizer Deidre B would be so proud of: some organic selections, many countries, obscure, harfd to find, and main stays like Italian Pinot Grigio, Fr Savignon, Chenin Blanc, Argentinian Malbec, New Zealand, So. African, California, So.American, German, american Washington ST, etc., standards that are more than your usual, with small winery labels with great prices, VA & MD local wines from our Chesapeake Basin region (1,000 Oaks/Lakes, etc NY, NC, WV/VA, etc.) And west coast, Columbia Valley OR/WA staes' great wines, etc. It's very chill, cafe style seating is ample, lots of selections by the glass, small or large (no alc bevs @outside on balcony/patio iverlooking family amphitheatre/bands/ market), and a frequent buyer club card for discounts off purchases / sales between the artisan deli tapas and the wine store & everything in between. High bar stool seating near wood fire oven, tables throughout lovely bistro/dining arfeas, and all are 1st come 1st serve self-seating, so no one bothers you while u enjoy food &/or drinks! Any Suggestions are welcomed. I would suggest $25pp+up for group of 5+more to buy a bottle each to share in group, and/or by the glass(es) - flights are avail at the wine bar where u pick up your glasses for tastings or bottles purfchased there: they chill & pop them for you on the spot! Pop pour & drink! If we pool the $ pp, I can help you all pick out a few great bottles from the store section, or we can all decide on them as a group, after Sat wine tasting class by the glass/bottles. It's up to you guys to vote on before meeting up. For Mondays HHs end 7p~ish, and we have time to head over to the wine bar/tapas bistro, or crawl from Nepal/Indian to Thai/Burmese, Lebanese Taverna... etc. More restaurants nearby, but only the ones with wine

HH @Reef Roof Top Bar & 7p Salsa (every Thu) w/ Francis & Laura

This is a cross post from the new meetup group hosted by the two salsa instructors (I joined so you can easily click on their link from my profile). The Reef has great drink specials, (used to have half price bottles in wed) and the food is excellent (fresh, bison and exotic options, local farm foods so very sustainable). Go see & taste for yourself, their great HH. Good food and drinks, and a great view of all of Adams Morgan from their roof top bar! (They had $3 mimosa&marys til 3p brunch weekend specials). Come learn or watch some salsa dancing, get some of that beer weight off, or just network and enjoy the scenery. I won't be able to attend due to my schedule, so we'll need 1-2 volunteer hosts to round up the group. Salsa starts after HH 7~8~ish. Please RSVP if you can make it and comment if you'll be able to host, gather the group for introductions. I will give you a gift coupon for another HH, when you come to Karake Mondays w/ Piano Jill. Enjoy responsibly, designate a driver, car pool, bike, walk metro, or cab. Be safe & protect our earth. Remember to get there early for HH prices & then stay for the dancing, bring a partner, find a new partner, or just meet new people. Groups are welcomed. Sign up early on the salsa meetup page to ensure your spot in line (salsa line). I have seen this guy instructor before, so he's pretty good. Alternative to the Mondays Salsa @Lucky Bar (Dupont South) local DC Irish pub & dive for beer & tacos/wings. And of course people watching!
