zTimBz and Sparky need to make room in their wine locker. Oh, and I think someone is coming to town in July. Hmmm, now if we could only remember! (Sadly, sukieasa didn't make travel arrangements, but it appears Itwdswafo will be our guest traveller.)

Host: zTimBz and MarkDaSpark

Location: Our OC Wine Locker (Off the 405 at Jamboree) in Irvine.

Theme: We need to make room! Also, we both evidently have 2003 TyTaniums than are screaming to be opened.

Date: July 12, 2013

Time: 6 PM (Have to be out by 7pm) Dinner afterwards?

Attendees:
- Sparky
- Itwdswafo
- Jenludwig



Note that we will probably have a .5 gather on Friday, July 12th around 6:00 pm, since Itwdswafo and Jenludwig will be in town then.

Yay! Can't wait to visit the wine cellar again. They just moved me up a size, and now I'm next to where (one of) Sparky's used to be.

I'll be in town for pretty much the entire month of July. Will be up in NorCal 19-24 though.

We're booked every weekend until October. Seriously. Lots of fun stuff but damn, it's going to be a busy few months.

How does the 13th work for you?

I was also worried that people would have plans for that weekend as well.

Hmmmm.....I will be in town that weekend, but have tentative plans. If it weren't with family I'd cancel because this sounds more fun:-) I'm still waiting to hear if the plans are a go or not. I'll check back in...

Now's the time to speak up and tell them to make a time slot for those wacky Internet fiends ... err, friends you've never met in person!

Worst case, drop by for an hour or two (starts around 3 pm), and then head out for dinner with the family.

molarchae and I are in - we're even going to pick up some Ridge Santa Cruz at Total Wine on the way.

I'd vote for inexpensive dinner with copious amounts of delicious wine

Sorry, we did seem to have ruled out this weekend before June 12th, and asked about this weekend then.

As you saw, the 10th is Tim's bday celebration.

Heading up to Santa Monica Friday after I'm out at the office and staying the weekend, so I'll not be making this:-(. I will be in Costa Mesa 7/8-19 except that weekend though if anyone wanted to grab dinner, or even advise on a good option for that:-)

zTimBz has informed me that other plans have required his presence elsewhere on the 13th.

Should we postpone? Or have a dinner by Klez on Saturday (or Friday?)

If you decide to do Friday or Sunday I could probably join. I can always head to Santa Monica Saturday morning for my family visiting time instead of Friday.

Well, that Friday works for me at the Wine Locker, but they are closed on Sundays.

But I think the 27th is fine for me. Votes?

I can always host a small gather on Friday, around 6 in Irvine at the wine locker. We can have the main gather on the 27th if that works.
