Weekdays are not my favorite, but we've found a way to make them better. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) night at Label 7 (http://www.labelseven.com/) can be a loads of fun. Yes, I know it's in Pittsford but don't let that stop you, you needn't drive a BMW or be named Skip,Chad or Buffy to attend. The goal of this 'meet up' is to try new wine and meet interesting people. Single, married, young or old, it matters not. We will shoot for some fun WINE themed meetups on the Eastside. Label 7 has a great new bar and a nice atmosphere. We can always discuss alternative locations and themes while at the meetups. Bring a great wine, have some great food, and enjoy great conversation. Label 7 is nice as it doesn't get too loud and we have had great results there, thus far. We look forward to seeing you at the next Eastside BYOB meetup.
We did not get a chance for a July event due to not being able to find a venue that would allow more than a group of "6". Its time to get back to socializing. So August's event is at the visitor center on my farm, in Rush. Many of the attendees of the last event there said it was an enjoyable place so.... here goes. Since during the covid virus lockdown we did not get a chance to transition to warm summer days, and cool white wines, that is what we will do for August. Please bring a bottle of a nice white wine, we are in the fingerlakes region... But broaden your horizons if you wish.
Wines of the New York, Region-
This region specializes in Sparkling Wines, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Ice Wine, and is also known for its Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc, as well as several French-American and Native American varietals. I was also told of a wine that NY is the home of, called "white merlot" Its really a rose but it is a chilled sweet wine. Prejean winery.
We will try and social distance at the event. There is a outdoor deck area, and room for over 50 people inside that is large with tables. We will limit the event to 25 people so there will be plenty of space. I will have a safe way for us to handle the bottles of wine, and i will have some safe finger foods for the group. Please bring a lawn chair for the deck if you wish, we do have some folding chairs.
Its time to get social.... so lets get together, and have a glass with our "wine friends".
