Hello again, Fellow WINOS!!!
I am planning our 3rd Wine BYO,
which will be held in Morristown on May 21th at 7:30pm (You're welcome,North-Jersey-ians! haha). I have selected venues which were recommended by people familiar with the area. (THANKS to Michael & James!) THE LOCATION FOR DINNER IS: http://www.brickovennj.com/dinner.htm
(recommended by, Michael)For the "DANCE portion of the evening" (if you wish to attend), We can go up the road to: "Grasshopper off the Green" (recommended by James!)http://www.grasshopperoffthegreen.com/For those of you (like myself) who may need hotel accommodations after our night of fun, The Morristown Hyatt is less than a mile away!

Let me know what you think, and if you may be
"TWIST FOR THIS BYO" -- I think it would be nice to have someone win (a small amount of $$) for
the "most liked wine"... Everyone can put $5 into a pot upon arrival. (I
will have a list of everyone who is attending and check off names
accordingly). THEN- by the end of the night, once everyone has sampled
all the wine, they can write down their favorite wine. Who ever brought
the wine that has the most votes WINS! We usually have at least 15
people at these events... so that's $75 to the winner!!! (OR we can do a
1st prize, 2nd prize, 3rd prize...). LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! :-)
Just to recap the "rules":
1. RSVP accordingly - let me know if you have a "+1"
2. Bring a bottle of wine of your choice (red, white, champagne,
3. Bring $5 for the "Contest"... Check in with me when you arrive so I
can check your name off. Who ever brings the wine that gets the most
votes will win the $$ (We may do a 1st, 2nd, 3rd Prize...)
4. BE SAFE!!!! There will be a lot of wine to "taste", be sure to pace
yourself, and have a DD, or a place to stay close by (IF NECESSARY)!!!
5. Bring comfortable shoes if you plan on attending the "after party"
And, as always: REMEMBER: "Life is too short to drink
