Wine Tasting

Postby Franclet » Tue, 30 Sep 2008 11:23 am

Dear All,

Anyone keen in forming a wine tasting group over here? I found a cosy little place along Tanjong Katong road serving wine with finger food to go along.

It is quiet compared to downtown area and should make for a good place to chit chat.

Pls let me know of your interest / any other suggestions, once we have a certain number, we can plan further.

Look forward to meeting up with some of you here.

Cheers,
Francis

Well, what's the name of this place?

I've yet to find an alternative to Vino Vino

S$18++ = S$21.20 for free flow wine and tapas . . .

Dear Chi_grl, Mr Q,

Thanks for showing your interest. I am not looking at a big group initially too, perhaps 4-5 will do. It is easier to chit chat in a smaller group.

So another 2 more will do, we can then look for a good location. The place Mr Q suggested is not bad too. We can get to that later.

Lets start a list rolling so others can add on:

1)Franclet
2)Mr Q
3)Chi_grl

Those who come after this can add on to this list.

Cheers,
Francis

So the list goes on -

1)Myself
2)Mr Q
3)Chi_grl
4)Zeenit & hubby

I guess this is a sufficient number to start something. I'll look up the exact location and name of the place again. I will announce once im ready, looking at thursday evenings, as it is good to have something to look forward to during midweek.

Any suggestions? Feel free to post!

cheers,
Francis

Hi folks,

Thank you all for your interest.

List of people who are keen:
1)Myself
2)Mr Q
3)Chi_grl
4)Zeenit & hubby
5)Sue
6)Mr.P & Ms.C
7)joegr
8)Ice (PMed me)

Tammyt is right, the place is WineBos, same franchise as vinovino, it is called the wine vault if im not wrong. Tammy are you keen in joining?

In my earlier post, i suggested this thursday, however i overlooked a seminar that i have to attend, so i am looking at next monday.

I think it is impossible to fit in everyone's time schedule, but we can have regular meetups so definitely there is a chance to meet yea? What do you guys think?

Yeh Wednesday's might clash with those in the WNDC too...

Thursdays normally might fit?

Are we thinking weekly, monthly?
