Winnetka Winos Summer Tasting

Saturday, June 24
Meet and greet begins at 7 p.m. and the official tasting starts promptly at 7:30 p.m.

Our summer tasting theme is “Your Favorite Porch Wine.” Bring a bottle of your favorite porch wine for sitting and sipping on a warm summer night — okay, hot summer night.  We’ll be inside with air conditioning, but dress for summer. 

Here’s the skinny: Each individual, couple or pair of neighbors brings a bottle of wine and a bite to eat that complements their wine. Bring whatever wine and food you like. Have fun with it!

Remember these tips:
* Bring enough food for at least 24 tastes
* If your food requires a utensil, plate, fork, spoon or toothpick to serve, you must bring these items
* You can warm your dish in the oven or microwave, but do not plan to cook your dish at the host’s home

Space is limited to 24 people: Sign up early by emailing Jack Hagler with the name(s) and email address of who will be attending. WH Wino wine tastings book to capacity quickly.

Residents of Winnetka Heights Historic District and their guest will be given first priority. Non-WHHD residents will be placed on a wait list and accommodated if space allows. 

If you have any questions, email Jack or call directly at 817.946.8609. We look forward to seeing you at Jack and Carol’s home on June 24!

In addition to electing new officers, you’ll also have the chance to vote on amending and updating the WHNA bylaws. Download the proposed changes.

If you’re a resident of Winnetka Heights, you’re automatically a member of the neighborhood association, and your vote is very important. We hope to see you there!


Get FREE VIP badges to the 2017 Oak Cliff Film Festival

The 2017 Oak Cliff Film Festival is happening June 8-11

Winnetka Heights neighbors have a chance to get FREE VIP badges by participating in the OCFF Couch Network.

The sixth annual Oak Cliff Film Festival will be here before we know it, promising an amazing slate of films, a ton of great parties, a variety of local venues, plus a chance to score free VIP festival badges by housing filmmakers during the festival.
If you have a couch, spare bed, or guest room you’d be willing to share in exchange for VIP festival badges, email ASAP. From there, the OCFF team will send interested parties a Google Form questionnaire to gain some insight on pets, smoking preference, etc.

This is a great opportunity to get involved in one of the coolest local events of the summer, plus experience it VIP-style for free. Learn more about the festival here
