That Merlot Moment (yearly event) @ Hollywood Sculpture Garden w/ POTLUCK!

That Merlot Moment is our YEARLY event we have been doing in January for a bunch of years.

Question: So what is "That Merlot Moment?"
Answer: Truly it could be a Pinot Epiphany! Or any other varietal.

That Merlot Moment is that time at the end of the year or just after . . .
. . . . AND . . .
. . . You were at home with glass of wine in hand and you made a resolution to be more social in the new year.

Keep in mind this was Pre-pandemic . . . Since we are Intra-Pandemic . . . Even moreso we are at home looking deep into our glasses of ruby colored elixir as we make a resolution (or in our turbulent times is more of a wish) to get out more in the new year. To make new friends. To make more friends. To go to new places. To be more social (in real life).

In short . . . . To NOT have the new year be like the last.

And so with perhaps a glass of Merlot in hand you started using the googley machine to try and find a way to make that happen.

Suddenly you have this Meetup thing . . .And curiously you have this very event before you. . . . and you, . . . OMG . . . just clicked RSVP=YES.

And that brings you to this very moment . . . and this very event.

This event is outdoors in a super-funky, pretty and cute location of The Hollywood Sculpture Garden. Thus we will complete the circle and have more wine to seal the deal.

This is intended as a "New To Meetup Mixer." Meaning if you are new to Meetup, or new to the group, been in the group for a while but not attended an event or even just new to the city, . . . then come.

A perfect way to meetup some quality people over some even better wine.

And very perfect if this is your first meetup ever!! Come join us.

If you are an existing member, . . . then you are equally welcome. After all . . who will be the welcome wagon for all the new people?

What do I have to do now?

(FIRST) TO ATTEND you NEED to FILL THIS OUT FORM https://forms.gle/oPv6oB7gmV6wL8Pf9

SECOND you need to pick up a bottle of Merlot or bring a dish to the event.

THIRD you need to show up (at the event) with your best self and be ready for an awesome year ahead (or at least one better than the year past)

I know what you are thinking . . . will this be fun? is this a cool place? will there be people as cool as me there? or even . . . . I'm not cool & I am shy/introverted . . . will I be able to fit in and enjoy too? What is I am attending Solo? Will I fit in or will I be able to socialize? Or what if this is my first meetup ever? Is this a good first meetup for me?

And the answer is yes to all.

WATCH THIS!!! Here is a vid from an actual event we did there. It was summer of 2021. Watch the whole thing and you will see the food/wine . . . the place, . . . where we hang out and how. As well as what it looks like at day and nite. AND . . . you get of feel of the people, place and vibe.
