Cher Confrères and Consœurs,
Greetings! I hope you all had a relaxing summer and now recharged and ready for our 2014-2015 Event Program.
Chaine Dinner Events: As in the past and unless otherwise noted, our events for this new season will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month starting on September 15, 2014 and ending on June 15, 2015. The November outing will be the exception; it will be held for at least 3 nights starting on Wednesday, November 19th at 18 guests per night. Also, the dinners at Fat Rice and Slurping Turtle/Takashi will occur on a Sunday/Monday combo due to venue size and event theme, respectively.
Mondiale Tasting Events: By popular demand, we have extended the number of our tasting events to five this season with two to three devoted to revisiting the basics of grape varietals, vinification and wine appreciation. Events will be held on the 1st Sunday of every other month starting October 5th, except for March (on the 22nd) to allow members to attend the Midwest Region Assemblage in Kansas City.
Set forth below is a complete list of our proposed Event Program for the new season. Please mark your calendars. Should there be changes to the schedule, trust that we will advise you promptly. Per tradition, event invitations will go out a month before event dates.
Vive la Chaine!
