september – fall is on its way

Posted by chaska on September 5, 2008

The last couple of days have been warm, but at least we’re finally getting some much needed rain around here. But don’t let that get your spirits down, because we have a fantastic September lined up for you! Two Nibble & Sips, our final movie night with Ghostbusters & two live music acts and Anne Northup as our guest for the Wine & Wisdom. As always, contact information for making reservations is on the sidebar to your right.

In this edition:

  • Member news
  • BVS Events
  • Coming Attractions


Membership Special: Friends, like wines, come in all varieties and flavors. And that is a perfect way to describe our members too. So far, we’re up to 40 members who have taken advantage of  my special offer to be among the first 100 and I’m still looking for more to join the ranks of lifetime members. Among the new features on its way is a forum for members only and I hope to have that launched by October… fingers crossed! Check out our ‘belonging’ page for all member benefits.

Other News:

  • We had our first Supper Speakeasy to rave reviews. Look out for the article that will be hitting the Courier during the month of September. And don’t worry, we’ll let you know when it hit stands. Our next one is in the planning stages for October (tentatively scheduled for Oct. 23) and if you think you might have a spot for us to enjoy, let me know and if we select your idea, you eat for free!
  • If you check out the September issue of Today’s Woman you’ll catch the Way to Go Woman Award Winners – which I’m honored to say, includes me. (blush)
