Terri and Mike have graciously offered to host on January 14th. This is a great opportunity for those of you that are new to Winnetka Heights to meet your neighbors, and for old friends to reconnect. Please respond in the forum post for the wine tasting under “events”.
Remember, space is limited. The wine tasting is generally limited to 24 guests, although 1 or 2 more may squeeze in. So, sign up early, as the tastings often become “fully subscribed”. Here’s how it works.
Each couple, or pair of neighbors who have teamed up, brings a bottle of wine and a bite to eat that pairs with the wine. As the night progresses, you will introduce yourselves, your wine and your food and we eat and drink one wine and one food item at a time until we are all full and happy!
What type of wine? Anything works. Winos range from aficionados to novice wine drinkers. There is no snobbery. Bring something special or something you just found at the store. While we all enjoy tasting the nice stuff, we also appreciate finding new inexpensive and accessible wines. On any given night, there is a wide range of wines, including whites, red, sparkling wines, and dessert wines.
What type of food? Again, whatever you like! While some people take the opportunity to flex their kitchen skills, it is perfectly fine to bring something store bought or simply prepared at home. Don’t let the cooking keep you away. Just have fun with it. Some tips: Bring enough for about 24 tastes. If your food requires a utensil, plate or toothpick to serve, bring what you need (don’t count on the host having enough utensils or plates). Also, don’t count on the host for any special equipment. You should be able to warm your dish in the oven or microwave, but because of the number of dishes, do not plan to cook your dish at the host’s home.
If you have any questions you can email email@example.com for more information or call Barbara directly at 214.942.4043. We hope to see you all on the 19th.
