WINEBO-CON 5: Wine Up Now!


It's that time of year again... it's time to sign up for WINEBO-CON, the 5th edition!


This year, we will be exploring the beautiful, coastal region of Monterey County. We'll taste at three different wineries in the charming downtown area of Carmel-by-the-Sea, have snacks in the park, and then will meet up at a bar that evening. All of this will take place on March 8th, 2014.


The cost of sign ups is $10 which will cover the snacks and a special gift (this fee does NOT cover transportation, tasting fees or accommodations). To sign up, you will need to Paypal $10 to bloodstone_march@yahoo.com. Please be sure to select the "family and friends" option so we can avoid fees.


[edit]
Due to the tasting rooms being small, we can only accept 30 people. The deadline to sign up is February 28th.


Sign Me Up for the Future!

If you would like to have a Threadless event closer to where you live, I would encourage you to plan something. The only reason why we're on our 5th year for Winebo-con is because some of us took the initiative 5 years ago to create this event. Also, we try to bring people out to California during that time of year so they can escape the snow :-) I know there is great wine in Oregon and areas on the east coast, but I'm pretty sure nobody wants to vacation in those areas in early March, haha.

There is an airport in Monterey, but I'm guessing it's small so it might be pricey. Your best bet would probably be to fly into San Jose and then it's less than an hour's drive from there. You could either rent a car or hitch a ride from somebody who lives in the area (ir0cko, 6of15, my BFF, etc.).

hopefully! I'd probably have to drive up late Friday night and then back Sunday afternoon... which doesn't sound that NICE.

valorandvellum
valorandvellum profile pic Alumni

Dang. Anyone from SoCal should probably just fly. That drive would be no fun.

I'm debating it... maybe I can talk my roommate into going with me.
I've always wanted to go.

Chipmnk

I read it the way you wrote it and it was so new and weird.

Ryder

hotel recommendations?

Twiggyhall

Having done the fly somewhere else and then drive there thing last year, I would strongly advise against it. It's worth the potential extra monies it costs to just fly to the smaller airport and save headaches and driving time...imo

Also, Stef let's chat about this and flying together, yo

I wrote it that way on purpose as an experiment. "new and weird" very interesting... very interesting...

Thanks for just the tips, Priscilla & Ryder!

Sure, jen. I'll have to check finances before commiting!

Hey alvin, pay the fee.

Omair

Long trainnnnn rrrrrrrrrride

trindli

If I'm going I could potentially give somebody a ride from SFO, Oakland or San Jose.

jublin
jublin profile pic Alumni

it's not looking very likely that I'll be able to make this. But I'm going to Vegas the weekend before so if I can win big bucks there then I'll just hire a private jet to drop me off at the winery and I'll parachute in while it rains hundred dollar bills.
