Re-scheduled: Shukugawa Outdoor Wine Tasting/ Picnic

I will add more details soon, but I want to set the date for an outdoor event before it gets too cold! Let's picnic, enjoy wine and hopefully see some changing colors along the Shukugawa river!

Details:

When: 2- 6 p.m. or so

What to wear: Please dress appropriately for the weather, as it might be chilly! Wear something comfortable, since we'll be sitting on the ground.

What to bring: If you have a handy "sheet" or tarp that you want to bring, feel free (I will bring a few). If you have a badminton set or frisbee, bring it! Might be fun :-)

Food: Everyone is asked to bring one item to share with the group. This could be sliced fruit, bread, cheese, baked item, or some おつまみ (snack) that you pick up from Lawson's along the way. For example, I'll bring hummus and pumpkin bread. The food doesn't need to be elaborate or fancy- just yummy and easy to eat!

Wine: Since this is a "wine-tasting" event, there will be wine! Depending on the number of attendees, I will bring a small selection of wines (red, white, sparkling) for us to taste. If you are consuming wine, I will ask for ¥300 from each wine drinker to cover the cost of wine.

***If you don't plan to drink wine, that's fine! Please just bring your own beverage and let me know you don't want to be included in the wine purchase.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions! You can message me or post in the comment section for this event.

Looking forward to meeting you all soon!

    Shane , Vino and I will go to the Rain concert ( the Beatles) on 17th Nov. Sat. I cant make this as an event because it need to buy tickets and I have no idea about the availability. Well some sheats are still available so if you want to come , pls buy tickets from the link below and join us :) Sheats may be separated but we could have drink or something after the concert ! http://www.kyodo-osaka.co.jp/schedule/E010054-1.html

      Thanks so much, Ineko-san, for arranging for the tickets. I'm looking forward to finally "seeing" the Beatles perform live! I saw Paul McCartney in concert once years ago - that was a real thrill. This will be fun!

      I don't think I can make it on Friday. I finish work around 6 usually, so Sat is much better for me :)

    Hey you Beatles concert folk. Sounds like you are gearing up for a great time. Have fun.
    Sarah mentioned about "suggesting" an even but I don't see how to do that. I would after first like to suggest it to the stellar folks that came to this picnic. I have limited space at my place so.....
    Can anyone advise me?
    Ta And, waiting for Vino's wine shindig.

      Hi, David! You or any member can suggest an event on the main group page. Look for the tabs labeled "Upcoming", "Suggest a Meet-Up" and "Past". Anyone should be able to share an idea for a gathering there and we can add it if it looks popular. Another option is to group message the attendees of Sunday's event and let them know the details of your party. That's if you want to keep the event private rather than announcing it on Meet-Up.

    Hi Sara It's been while! (I'm the Osaka guy.Hope you remember me.:)
    I do like this event!
    It's outdoor, doesn't cost that much, has options whether you drink wine or not.

    Unfortunately I can't make it this time, so maybe next time!
    (Having this event in Osaka would have made it more awesome.
    I'm kidding.haha

      Hey, Osaka guy! Of course I remember you and the lively Osaka vs. the World debate ;-) Sorry you can't make it this time, but hope to see you at a future meet-up soon....maybe even in Osaka! :-)

      October 15, 2012

  • Shane

    Sounds like it will be a fun time - unfortunately I, too, can't make it as I will be in Kyoto that weekend for work. But maybe there could be a Wine Tasting Part II under the sakura along the Shukugawa in Spring 2013? Enjoy!

      Thanks for the suggestion, Shane! Eat Osaka should definitely hold at least one spring ohanami event next year! :-)
