Greenwich Wine Society
An "Evening to Definitely Remember" ...Thursday, August 26th
The Wine Society's "Endless Summer" event at The Drawing Room was certainly a memorable one... good turn-out, fine wines, nice people (...wine lovers usually are) and what a venue!
Oh yes, one small unanticipated development -- the lights and AC went out. Did the lack of power deter our dedicated wine lovers? No way, ... a good time was had by all! A sense of adventure pervaded the party and the spacious, candle-lit outdoor patio was a wonderful refuge. Good eats too -- fantastic finger sandwiches as only the Drawing Room can create them, plus cheeses, charcuterie, etc, etc. Many smiles too as the networking got into high gear.
Plus, there were lights and air conditioning in The Drawing Room's adjacent gift shop where folks could cool down, and, plenty of ice was on hand to keep the wines refreshingly delicious (Prosecco, and many other great summer favorites)
A big surprise were the door prizes -- in addition to the expected (bottle of wine, gift certificate, etc). The Drawing Room's gift shop came through with several additional ones (cheers to Kenleigh for her generosity and great taste).
By the way, the next time you're in Cos Cob be sure to check out the gift shop's unique selections (and try to stop over at the cafe where there's a great selection of teas, coffees, pastries...and don't forget their famous finger sandwiches!
P.S. Stay tuned - Another event is in the works for mid- Fall -- Details to be announced.
