Blues & Wine Festival

Hi Everybody,

Andrew is going to host the Blues and Wine Festival on Memorial Day weekend as our May event.  I've done this a few years, and it is always a great time.   Go to the site and buy a ticket, they are less expensive than when you purchase at the door.  http://www.newjerseywines.com/festivals.html

This is an interactive tasting event, and you may find an empty area with the balloons - that's cause folks are out tasting!  Just plop your stuff down in the area (I think you can bring a chair and/or a blanket) and then walk around and taste some wine.  You will find somebody from the group. 

Once we have an idea of who has purchased tickets, we can do some coordination of cell phone number sharing so you can find somebody a bit more easily through text.

Andrew has agreed to wait until 1 at the balloons, so the best thing is to get there by one.  Parking is off-site and they bus you over (if memory serves), and the line is usually pretty long to get in, so leave yourself plenty of time.

    Also, if you are running late and miss us at the balloon site, start your tasting at Old York Cellars. A bunch of us will be at their tent around 1:15. Looking forward to a great day.

    I just want everyone to know where we'll be setting up the Purple and Gold Balloons.
    When you walk through the gates, look to the right towards the tree line. It's a nice area to spread our things while we venture to the tasting tents Some of us are veterans Some, novice. Still, we always have a great time.
    The earlier you get there the better. There are over 40ppl from this group + 20 or so from other invites. They will have venders for food and trinkets.
    I encourage sampling what NJ offers in wines.
    Looking forward seeing everyone on Sunday.

    Just an f.y.i.... the festival starts @ 12:00 p.m. Also... this is Memorial Day weekend. As long as I can switch my "on call" schedule (working on now)... I will there ! Should not be a problem this far in advance.
