It's been way too long since I've seen the MN people. I am wondering if there is any interest in an afternoon tasting/gathering some Saturday this spring/summer. I know weekends book up quickly, so this is me testing the waters.
I could host, but that would mean a little bit of driving for people as I am towards Rochester. We could also make this a kid friendly party as there is a pretty much private park and play area behind my house as well as if the weather is poor, a theater in my basement.
Looking at my calendar for the summer, I have June 28th, July 26, or August 18 open (like I said, summer fills up quickly around the Penguin house).
Otherwise, I would be open to driving up to the cities on those dates if someone else more centralized wanted to host. Maybe Otolith could take us tubing with his new boat.
Hope to hear from some of you!

Always up for a gathering, even though I'm not positioned to host them any more (unless y'all want to travel to South Dakota).

I'd be up for a gathering as well. Might even be able/willing to host depending on the date chosen. My basement is in the process of being finished, so if it gets done in time I'd welcome a gathering here in Crystal.

I suspect that, since Woot no longer ships to Minnesota, most of the crew don't check in any more. If someone could get word out on Facebook we might get more of a reaction.

I'd do it, but I don't do Facebook.

Hi Guys--a get together would be fun! Chris, if you end up hosting, I'd be happy to help out as I'm in the neighborhood. As far as getting the word out, no Facebook for me either. I'll keep an eye on the thread now that I now it's out there.
Cheers!

Becca and I would be willing to host in Bloomington on the 5th, 11th or 18th of July. Kids are welcome, we have a play set in our fully fenced backyard if the weather is nice. Let us know if that works for anyone!

I'll most likely be in town on the 11th!

edit: I realized that the 11th is the Friday of that week, not the Saturday. Maybe I'll just have to take a half day off work and drive into town....

What time do you have in mind? Feel free to PM me with the details and I'll keep an eye on my inbox. I should be able to make it and I might have a few friends with me (strangers to Woot, but not strangers to wine.) I can also bring some cheeses and chocolates.

We are thinking around 7pm. That way people can eat an early dinner first and have time to head over. See you Friday!

I've given word that I'm going to be leaving work early tomorrow - I'm planning on making it there, but one never knows what'll happen around this office. Hope to see you there. After a 5 hour drive, I'll be ready for some wine!

Edit - I have a bottle of Ty Caton 2003 Cab, and a Vinito del Finito, that I plan to bring.

For anyone that does not know we Minnesotans can order from wine.woot again. The order goes through amazon now though.

This is great to hear I have not been looking at wine.woot much because of the no shipping to Minnesota so very grad to see that changed.
