What we're about

Welcome to WineBudz – a "no-wine-snobs-allowed" group in Kitsap County and beyond. Whether you’re brand new to the vine or a ripened enthusiast, you will find a warm and welcoming atmosphere here. We will offer several events every month at venues all over Kitsap County, from Poulsbo to Silverdale, Bremerton & places beyond. As variety is the spice of life, so too will we provide a wide variety of meetups... from the traditional (i.e. happy hours, wine tastings, wine classes, wine dinners, etc.) to the novel and one-of-a-kind (i.e.... well, you’ll just have to join to find out!). So come make new friends and perhaps learn a bit about wine along the way. You must be 21 to join and no older than 121 (as we are concerned about your ability to drive home).

If you do not agree to the following, please remove yourself from the group and any of our activities and events. Thank you.

Movie Night

Let’s get together for a movie. I will make air popped popcorn with real butter. Bring something to drink and an appetizer to share. Wear comfy clothes to sit on oversized floor pillows. Movie title TBD.

Photographers and Eagles 🦅

Needs a location

The eagles are here and at low tide they are fishing for a run of small Midshipman fish (see photo).
Bring a snack to share and beverage and cameras and we can walk the beach take photos of the amazing show!
The tide will be very low at about this time which is when the most eagles show up.
You will need to RSVP and have messaging set up and I will send you my address. Parking is limited so please try to carpool from Silverdale (or other location) which is only 5 miles away.

No Quarter - Legacy of LED ZEPPELIN

Needs a location


After a hiatus of three years years, NO QUARTER is back at The Admiral Theatre! This is a “Celebration Day” for all die-hard fanatics. Led Zeppelin is one of the best-selling music artists of all time; their total record and CD sales are estimated to be upward of 300 million units worldwide. They achieved eight consecutive UK number-one albums and six number-one albums on the US Billboard 200, with five of their albums certified Diamond in the U.S. Rolling Stone magazine described them as "the heaviest band of all time," "the biggest band of the '70s," and "unquestionably one of the most enduring bands in rock history." Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, the museum's biography of the band states that they were "as influential" during the 1970s as the Beatles were during the 1960s.

There have been several cover groups over the years, but No Quarter was named THE #1 Led Zeppelin tribute band by the executive producer of Paul McCartney. They deliver the most authentic reenactment of the legendary British Supergroup live in concert. Re-live the "glory daze" of Robert Plant's soaring vocals, Jimmy Page's blistering lead guitar, John 'Bonzo' Bonham's "hammer of the gods," and John Paul Jones' deep and low bass riffs. If you are a heavy, hard rocker, and/or “Led Head,” this is your show!

Please note, seating will be balcony only; the main floor tables will be removed so that all the mosh pit groupies can jam together in front of the stage! At only $18 for general admission, this show will most likely sell out. Let me know if you want to sit up in the balcony with a toast, or join the party at "front row center"!

Let’s ROCK!
