We had a great turn out in SF at Fort Mason last time, and wanted to do it up in the East Bay!
We're happy to partner with and feature a great organization and venue, the Oakland Asian Cultural Center, near BART, 980, and 880. Located on the 2nd floor, with convenient underground parking!
Those of you into wine have surely gathered at a friend's, with each contributing a bottle. Let's do it up East Bay style and see what happens if 200+ fun folks get together in the same format.
That's right, your single $15+ bottle will give you access to $3,000+ worth of wine ... that's scalability!
Just $10-15 for this event, to cover costs, and a $15 or more bottle of wine. As you enter, you will be given a name badge, and so will your bottle, so that you can receive the praise you truly deserve.
Wine will be grouped by varietal and region, so you can gravitate to Cabernet, Sparkling, etc. - whatever your preference. After all, a great way to learn more about wine and develop your palate is to taste and compare similar wines.
So no Sutter Home, no Two Buck Chuck, no Yellowtail please! We will check retail pricing via Wine Searcher (http://www.wine-searcher.com/), if necessary.
Please drink responsibly.
