SoCal Gatherings Listing

SoCal #4 - The Satellite Edition VEGAS, BABY! EVERYONE'S INVITED! (Nov 15, 2008) This was the first Vegas gathering, which we called the SoCal satellite edition because there was only one Vegas Wooter. We had many wooters from across the country in attendance. "Lesser Known Varietals" was the theme.
SoCal #5: Samhain/Dia de los Muertos! (Nov 1, 2008) Yes, this does mean that SoCal #5 is BEFORE SoCal #4, but when has disrupting the space/time continuum mattered to true Wine Wooters??? TimByrd is breaking out the PoiZin and cooking up a storm at his place.
