Are you looking for a fun, yet competitive way to show your Winnetka Heights neighborhood spirit?

Do you secretly dream of showing Kings Highway that we rock? Do you want to put Kessler Park in their place (behind us)? Do you want to one-up Elmwood after they took the Mardi Gras Parade win from us this year? Do you want Bishop Arts to know we rule?

Then, join our WHNA Tug-of-War team. We need strong and fearless individuals to come out and show North Oak Cliff that we can win the War o’ the ‘Hoods on Sunday, October 8 at the Bishop Arts Pumpkin Fest. Click on the image above for more details.

If you are interested and can’t make it to Nova, then email Linda Jackson at, or call or text her at 214.289.6830.

Hope to see you at the meeting on Tuesday!

September and October Winnetka Heights Wine Tastings

WHNA Winnetka Winos is back! Our first two tastings are back-to-back.
Reserve your spots by emailing Jack Hagler at

Saturday, September 30
Theme: Winter is Coming — What wine do you turn to when the weather turns cool?
Hosts: Barry French and Karen Foster French

Saturday, October 7
Theme:  Neighbors Pot Luck — Share your favorite with your neighbors.
Hosts: Richard Ewers and Elissa House

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

Sign up for one or sign up for both events. Please provide your first and second choice of dates, in case there’s a heavy response for attendance.

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 for each event: Sign up early by emailing Jack Hagler at 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 at or call directly at 817.946.8609. We look forward to seeing you!
