Casual Night at Lorna & Imre's

  • Mar 30, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Lorna and Imre's

For March, we are invited to Lorna & Imre's house, and the theme Imre has chosen is:

'Celebrating the sin of Pride'

You enjoy wine, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this. You KNOW the
direction to which your tastes gravitate. You may prefer whites, you may
prefer reds, you may have a weakness for reds produced in a certain part
of the world. Whatever your preference, there is one above all others
that strikes a chord that no other does. One that you feel no shame in
sharing with friends. One that you save until all of the expendables
have been opened.

At this meetup, we are going to dig deeply into our guilty pleasures to
present the wines that we are most proud of. It may be a $12 red table
wine that first sparked your interest in wine. It may be a $59 bottle of
bubbly that you served to guests when you tied the knot. It may be
something else... something that drew your attention to some grape,
varietal, or vineyard more than anything else ever has.

It doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be something that you
are proud to share. Also, we will be asking you to share a few words
about what you enjoy about the wine. Besides the sin of pride, there may
also be some gluttony, which means that attendees with the first name starting with A to M should bring goodies. Don't let that stop you if you are N to Z, the more gluttonous the better

What to bring – food and wine 

Wine – Bring one (or two if you'd like) bottles of wine. (Think $15 - $$$ a bottle.) Ideally, bring a wine that matches the theme. We’d really like to know a little bit about the wine you brought, so please write a note and attach it to your bottle indicating – your name, where you bought it, your "review" of the wine, and it’s cost (don’t cover the bottle’s label). We have printed labels available when you sign in if you want to use one of them instead.

Food – Any member whose first name begins with A to M and anyone that’s bringing a guest (more than one person on the RSVP), bring a dish to share, along with serving utensils. If it’s not your turn to bring food, but you have a dish you’d like to bring, please feel free to. And we’d appreciate it if you post an idea of what you are going to bring when you RSVP.

RSVP and Directions                                                                                                                    

Please respond to the invitation no later than the Thursday evening before the event. Only those who respond YES by Thursday night will be sent the address on Friday morning. If you haven't received directions by Friday evening, email Tana. You are always welcome to bring a guest to an event; but you need to include that person in your RSVP (and provide the appropriate amount of food and wine). 

*If your plans change, we request you change your RSVP right away. Since most events have a guest limit, if you do not show up, then someone else who wanted to come did not get to because you had that spot.

Wine and Drive                                                                                                                        

These don’t mix, obviously. Each person attending these events is responsible for his/her own behavior, safety and sobriety. The host is in no way liable for anything that might occur at the event or afterward, including driving home. You are responsible to designate a driver for yourself and your companions for every event.  

If you have any questions, please let me know.

      You are not in the A to M group, so you're not required to bring food, but if you want to, bring something delish or that goes with your wine.
