My Kind Of Night Out

Wednesday night I joined a bunch of my friends at The Grapevine, a wine bar I really like, for an event for charity.  The wine bar allows for people to guest bartend for tips for the charity of their choice.  My friend Sabrina was our bartender for Melanoma research.  I loved the idea of this and invited pretty much anyone I thought would come.  Drink wine for a good cause?  Yes, I'm in.

Hello Jen!
I ordered a wine flight to start with. 

Red Wire, Diseno Malbec, Layer Cake Primitivo.

I think the Red Wire was actually my favorite of the three.  Delish :)

We also ordered some appetizers.

Cheese plate.

Roasted red pepper hummus and olives.  I later had an unpictured Malbec.

Erin, Katie, and Stew.  Best expression by Katie ever :)

Look!  I actually had a date!  Awww, Greg :)

Jen and Sara met for the first time.

Hey there Kelly!

 Katy showed up too.  We're all hoping she moves to Charlotte really soon :)  She was here while her husband was interviewing, so it's looking promising!

Ah, the rare picture of our men being social.

We had a great turn out!  A lot of people came and ate, drank, mingled, and tipped!

Love this crew :)  Thank you all for coming!

This was exactly my kind of night out.  I love going somewhere I can have some wine, chat with my friends, have some food, and I was home by 9:30pm.

Love the new look! So good seeing you at this event! It was fun. i should have come to meet your blog friends, but I was in a bit of a funk. Glad you linked to them though so I can go snoop a little! Oh, and after the roof guy came out last night, he basically said the insurance adjuster needs to come look to price it! UGH!
