We’re 2! Let’s celebrate with some fun incentives!

Posted by chaska on April 18, 2010

Bon Vivant is officially two years old! And we have lots of fun ways for you to share and celebrate with us.

Member Incentives:

  • Book any home party with us by June 15 and as the host, you enjoy the party for free! Party must be held by September 1 to qualify. Minimum of 10 people.
  • Attend any Dining Club Event, i.e. Speakeasys or Wine & Wisdoms, between now and the end of June and be entered to win a champagne hot air balloon ride for two. This trip is valued at $375. Drawing will be held during the Speakeasy on June 27th. Couples and singles are both considered one entry.
  • Join us for any Speakeasy from now through June and members pay only $125 for two people. That’s a savings of $25.

Not a member yet? That’s OK. We have great rates and now is the time to join. If you join us by May 1, you’ll be entered for the hot air balloon tip as well – which makes you also eligible for all the great incentives listed above!

Wondering what we have in store for you? Well let me tell you what fun we have planned…

April 20 – Bourbon Barrel Foods Speakeasy with Matt Jamie and chef Michael Hargrove
May 20 – Floral Themed Speakeasy – which will be featured in Food & Dining Magazine’s September Issue

Member News – Incentives and New Membership Rates

Posted by chaska on August 7, 2009

wp-button-memberalertMEMBER INCENTIVE
As a special incentive for our members, we are now offering savings when you bring a guest. Members will save anywhere from $5-10 for each guest, up to the cost of the event, when they bring a friend – which means you could come for free! And, members aren’t the only ones who benefit… each guest also saves when invited by a member.

NEW MEMBER RATES
As of August 2009, yearly membership is $50 per person. We also offer a discount when you join with a friend or group of friends. Those involved in the food community (restaurant owners/employees, Sullivan students/Professors, caterers, etc) are eligible for a special discount. Please inquire directly to discuss. Small businesses and organizations (alumni chapters, dining clubs, singles groups, etc) are eligible for group pricing as well, starting at $500/yr for up to 50 members. Larger organizations should contact us directly for pricing.

Membership entitles you to special pricing on events as well as insider info going on about Louisville and specials offered only to BVS members. A forum for members to connect is also in the works (it’s there, I’m just not quite happy with it yet) and will hopefully be up and running soon.

Membership has its privileges

Posted by chaska on July 25, 2008

Ah, membership has its privileges. And here at BVS it’s no different. For the moment, we are building from the ground up. The first 20 members who joined at the very beginning have been grandfathered in as Lifetime Members… and now, I’m extending that to the next 100 members to join as well. Why would I do this? It’s simple really. You have to start somewhere and I have ideas just brimming and bubbling and excitedly await the ability to make them a reality. Here’s what I have in mind, to give you a peek as well as the perks included in membership:

Event ideas/hopes

  • Singles events, couples events, single parents, boomers, etc…
  • Wine classes
  • Cooking classes
  • Travel and weekends away packages
  • Dinners and Happy Hours for members only

General Perks

  • Area Discounts (currently in partnership with the Highland VIP card while we grow)
  • National Discounts
  • Free entrance to certain events, like movie nights
  • No additional event fees on events open to the public
  • Advance notice of events when there are limited reservations
  • Personalized attention at events and hosts to help make introductions, so you never have to fear coming to an event alone
  • If you’re single, you also have access to all travel and events at Single Gourmet chapters nationwide
  • Couples – never fear, often travel offered by the Single Gourmet Chapters is also available to you too. Check with the Chicago or NYC chapters for possibilities.

So, join now and enjoy the benefits of what is soon to be Louisville’s premier dining and social networking group.
