*NEW THEME OF "PRICEY WINES"!!*
It seems there was not enough interest in the palate training we originally planned for, so we changed it to "pricey wines". One bottle of $40+ wine per person. You can bring more than one bottle if you would like, but only the first bottle has to be of the pricey persuasion. If anyone with a grill would like to volunteer their location please speak up. If not we will meet up at Imagine4vr's place on Sat. 8/16. While the official palate training has been shuffled off onto the back burner for now, you are still welcome to bring an item or two to represent a flavor in the wine you bring. Also, no one chimed in on a varietal theme so I think it is bring what you want, no restrictions.
Location: Chicagoland, The Windy City, The 2nd City whatever you want to call it. Come in from out of town and have some fun, or stay away we don't want you drinking our SUPER AWESOME WINE anyway!!
Here is a list of attendees and regrets and too good for's. Imagine graciously offered up her place at the start of planning and has not said anything to the contrary. Imagine please confirm if this is still the plan. Timewise I am open as long as its not early morning (which I would doubt anyway ). Everyone attending please chime in with your thoughts.
