What we're about

Want to make friends and discuss the classics or latest best seller over a drink or glass of wine? Want to do it without traipsing all the way into the city or worrying about parking? This club is for you.

This is a new club, and we can change course, as we go, but for the time being, let's plan to meet up every 3 weeks or so, maybe alternating between happy hour during the week around 7pm in Fairfax City or Fairfax Corner, and Sunday afternoons around 1 at a local winery. Book and vineyard suggestions welcome.

Dracula- in time for Halloween

Ozzie's Good Eats

While we love Edward, and all, wouldn't it be nice to actually read the ORIGINAL vampire story? (Original enough, anyway). Join us for our first meeting as we introduce ourselves and get into the Halloween spirit over happy hour with a lively (ha!) discussion of Bram Stoker's classic, "Dracula."

The Fall of the House of Usher (and wine!)

Cana Vineyards and Winery

Po' some mulled wine and enjoy the splendor of fall as we discuss "The Fall of the House of Usher." As one reviewer put it, "With this dark, romantic tale of terror, heredity, and home sweet home, you'll have so much literary horror to worry about you won't have time to focus on your own dark drama." Sounds perfect.

Doctor Zhivago and Moscow Mules (to celebrate a brighter holiday season)

Russia, snow, and orphans. Apparently there's also a love story in there, somewhere. The good news is, it's also an audio book available from the library.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Ozzie's Good Eats

Get back into the swing of things after holiday merrymaking with this supposedly-readable epic tale of chivalry. Your liver has probably recovered by now (at least enough for happy hour, right?).
