Cheers, to a good cause
I was really excited when this e-mail from the Bacchanalian Society arrived yesterday afternoon. Have any of you ever attended this event? The YP group has four events a year, and I went to my first one this winter at the CAC, and I met my new best friend Kristen there. It was a massive event, and dozens of people were turned away. Truth be told, it's more about the socializing than the wine. However, it's a great event, and one of the best ways to meet people in the city, in my opinion.
The idea is simple: YPs gather to drink wine, socialize and help a good cause. (This time, the tasting benefits 7 Days for SIDS.)
When: Thursday, June 14 7-10 p.m.
Where: Newport Syndicate, 18 E. 5th St., Newport
Cost: $20 per person, plus three bottles of the same wine per team (teams can be 1-3 people)
The wine for this tasting is NEW WORLD WINE which is any wine from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile or Argentina. Each invitee, or team of up to 3, must bring 3 bottles of THE SAME NEW WORLD WINE.
There's an after-party at Jefferson Hall. Their Web site hasn't been updated yet, so I'll attach the e-mail in a comment!
