Re: [SJBayAreaWine] Fake Meet-ups????

the wine shop at home was a big disappointment - and yes more like a pyramid scam operation than a real wine tasting event.
  and by the way - very, very poor quality wine.
this type of event should be banned.

Ok, sounds like it���s time for me to chime in. First, let me say that I find it humorous that MOST (not all) of you commenting to this thread have never even been to one of our meet-ups, so how could you possibly judge? Robert is clearly uninformed about what I do as it is NOT a ���pyramid scheme���, but direct selling & I���m simply marketing & making sure members enjoy some great wine & have fun!. There is nothing deceptive about what���s been posted. Our meet-ups at various wine bars have nothing to do with WineShop At Home.
A little history....I held/started the very first meet-up for this group in 2006, grew the membership to over 500, so the success of this group is near & dear to my heart. Unfortunately, I had to give up as Main Organizer. Needless to say, I was thrilled when Steve Hood took it over as he has been a great sponsor. Carlos & I are the main organizers for the group. Carlos does a great job too, and many of his events revolve around where his band is playing. Is that dishonest?....I hardly think so.
REMEMBER.....Meet-ups are for people with ���like��� interests. This group���s interest is wine, not whine. If there is something that is posted that you have no interest in, then by all means don���t go��� need to be critically abusive. I just suggest that you attend an event BEFORE you criticize (and possibly try the Please use this forum for places to have meet-ups.
Thank you
