I can't wait for winebocon

With the meet up being over, I have to think of the next fun thing to keep from being sad! How many of you guys are thinking of coming to winebocon? Do you want to try and do a vineyard tour in addition to the tastings? Can we think of more good pick up lines??

"I peed here three times!!"

But yeah, SBP (SLO airport) is going to be the closest one. I can probably pick up anybody who flies into it, and it's maybe a 10 minute drive into town. The prices there can vary. I was able to book a roundtrip flight from SBP to O'Hare for a little over $300, but if you're flying from a small airport, it's probably going to be expensive.

Good info, thanks Priscilla :)

We need to sit next to each other at dinner or something so we can actually chat. Everytime I saw you, the music was blasting so loud we could never talk or anything, lol

Chipmnk

Oh man, there was this really good dessert wine last year. I forgot to buy a bottle of that.

Huzzah!! I'm excited to see all of you guys!

And yes, there probably won't be any blasting music so people can talk :-P

Omair

Everyone whispers during winebocon. Whispercon.

No whisper farts at winebocon though!

Twiggyhall

Oh man, Kayce! I think tequilabocon would make for a lot of rough mornings!

Whispers & wine glass clinks

Silent but deadly vintage

mullmuggins

I really want to go to one of these.

Maybe we can come to this next one. Maybe.

Twiggyhall

That would be so awesome, Abi! I would love to talk to you more :)

I'm definitely going to try to come to this. It's West Coast, so I kind of have to, right?

Chipmnk

Tequilabocon = Hangover Weekend.

Omair

Twiggyhall

So here's a question for you guys... would you like to do the next Winebocon in the same area (SLO and Paso Robles)? Or would you prefer to try somewhere new, like the Santa Barbara area? Please note that Santa Barbara, though easier to get to for SoCal people, would end up being more expensive (e.g. cheapest hotel in SLO for that weekend is $71 and the cheapest hotel for Santa Barbara is $106). I don't think we should do Napa since that would be REALLY expensive and out of the way for most people.

If a lot of first-timers are coming this year, then I'm thinking the SLO/Paso area should be fine since it will be new to them.

P.S. This will most likely be the weekend of February 16th since that's the three day weekend (for some people... not me...).

I'm down for whatever! I'm just in it for the good times... and the wine. :D

Chipmnk

Santa Barbara could be fun. I haven't really spent any time there aside from passing through a few times. I'm down for either though (or both???).

Chipmnk

Winebocon 2014: Italy

tragos

Either sounds good!

Alright, I'm looking into Santa Barbara wineries! If the tasting rooms in downtown SB can accommodate larger sized groups, then Santa Barbara it is!

valorandvellum
valorandvellum profile pic Alumni

Yes, it's definitely more pricey than SLO. Right now we're letting fate decide if it's Santa Barbara or SLO – it all depends on if the tasting rooms can do large groups. If they say no, then we'll probably revert back to SLO and Paso Robles.

Twiggyhall

Man, I really want to come to this. Crossing my fingers that I'll have enough money to do so!

I might come. I might bring Mr. Mezo.

Steve The Great

I probably can't afford any of it anyways, so that's cool.

littlem
