I chatted with some folks and there seems to be interest in doing another wine dinner in mid-May, specifically the following dates:
Wednesday, May 10th
Thursday, May 11th
Friday, May 19th
I think we can figure out dinner theme once we have a sense about people’s availability and what their wine interests are. I imagine an expansive theme to accommodate a variety of interests will be ideal.
In terms of venue, the options are open. I have my Lebanese place, but I would be interested in other venues if folks know of places that can/are willing to accommodate a dinner like ours. Potential venues will also influence the final wine theme, I imagine.
Feel free to post your availability to this thread if you are interested!
Is there a particular wine theme that people want to do for the dinner?
I’m open, though right now my cellar is deepest in riesling, Piedmont (Barolo/Barbaresco/Alto Piemonte), Loire, and some red Burgundy.
I’m open to anything – or even a theme where we just bring whatever you are particularly passionate about right now (I’ve had a bunch of fun dinners in the past where there was no particular theme).
In terms of venue, I got my Lebanese place, which would be easy for us to book. But, I’m open to other venues if people want to do something more formal. I heard that Great China in Berkeley may be an option (though that might be out of the ways for us).
Let me know what you all think! (also, plenty of room for others if they are interested)
Sorry to threadjack…Since you’re postponing this, anyone free that Wednesday (17th)?
Up there for a short work trip…wouldn’t mind meeting some other people. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting George a couple of times…
