This group is for fun ladies that are 30-45 yrs young who love to read, eat, and drink wine :) Back in Southern California, I belonged to a Meetup group that was set up just like this one. It was so much fun and I met some great people through it, so I wanted to start one here in Westchester since I recently moved back to NY from CA.
Each month, we read a book and meet to discuss it (and other things :). Initially let's meet in a restaurant/cafe where we can enjoy food & drinks. Eventually, we could shift from meeting at a restaurant/cafe to a member's home if we have enough interest to take it that direction. In that scenario we could do a potluck (no, doesn't have to be homemade, can be store-bought :) where each member brings either a food item or a bottle of wine to share with the group.
If you'd like to host a meeting at your place, don't be shy and let me know! The hostess gets to pick the book we read. I’m sure everyone has a favorite book or two... or twenty!
Also, if you'd like to plan another type of event (eg, a movie trip to see the film of a book we've read, an author event, or even just happy hour or weekend brunch), message me and we'll get it posted!
If there is no activity or participation from a member in over 6 months, you may be removed from the group. The reason for this is because I don't add people just for the sake of adding them. When trying to build friendships and rapport with other members, it's quality over quantity.
There are efforts and time put into organizing each Meetup. If you habitually (ie, twice in a row) no-show or drop out less than 72 hours prior to an event, I will be forced to remove you from the group. It doesn't give others on the waitlist enough time to read the book and be able to come. Thanks for your cooperation, ladies!
