Festive Cheer - Wine, Food and Friends

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members

  • Our next wine adventure, will be a festive get-together, in the spirit of the holidays and the upcoming festivities, hosted by two of our members Cindy and Jessica.

    It's a special acknowledgement and celebration, of all the new friends we have made this year, through our Grapes & Grains social community, which thrives to bring together, people that enjoy food, drinks, arts and socializing.

    The event theme is a festive wine and food/dessert pairing.

    For this to be a great fun festive party, you have a part to play - Please bring your favorite festive wine and food / dessert pairing to share.

    The hosts for the evening, will be Cindy and Jessica, and they will be hosting this event in Alexandria, a short walk from the metro.

    Please comment on the food and wine/dessert  pairing you are bringing, so others can bring something different, and we can have a good variety of food and wine  for this event.

    If you haven't commented, in 3 days after your RSVP, we will assume that your plans of attending may have changed and offer others on the wait-list a chance to attend. 

    Our party venue in Alexandria is Metro accessible and a short walk. The address will be provided in a separate message to the participating members.

    Please manage your RSVP responsibly, as it helps us to better plan our events and also allows more members on the wait-list to attend. 

    If you are on the wait-list and have attended our events before and managed your RSVP responsibly, we will do our best to have a spot for you at this event, as we would like to acknowledge that planning of such events is only possible with responsible management of RSVP.
