Due to great positive feedback - we have another Guided Wine Tasting & Food Pairing experience coming up on a Friday night! This event is limited to a small group of 10 people who have purchased the $25 ticket on Eventbrite. You can show your interest on this Meetup page, but you must purchase a ticket ahead of time on Eventbrite to attend. https://guided-wine-tasting-and-food-pairings.eventbrite.com I will bring some of the vineyards from California and France to you just like if you would be visiting a winery. We will be tasting wines from several prestigous award winning wineries while enjoying food from your own specially prepared tasting plate. Special food bites were chosen to pair with each of the different wines. Learn more about how to taste wines, discover a new way to classify different variety of wines and explore how food can compliment the wine and actually change the flavor and vice versa how wine can make food taste better in a relaxed and unpretentious setting. *We will be meeting in room 7H at WeWork located on the 7th Floor. The event space has been sponsored by Carl Tirador's Goosehead Insurance Agency (more information below). If there is anyone at the front desk please let them know you are attending the Goosehead Insurance event.

We are having another mixer in March in the great bar and lounge at the ALoft Dallas Downtown Hotel! Past mixers were such a success that we have worked with them to hold another event. Unlimited amount of people - the more the merrier! I hope the people that have come to one of these mixers before will come back and I am hopeful that new people will join in too! Free parking has been negotiated - park in the lot around the hotel and disregard the pay for parking signs. Extended Happy Hour from 5p.m. to 8p.m. Special happy hour beverages will include the following: 2.50 draft bud light, 4.50 wells and 4.50 house wine. Some complimentary munchies will be provided! The space is great - a bar, a lounge with couches and chairs and they even a pool table! Very hip! I will be collecting this time $5/person at reception and will be giving you a name badge.
