That Merlot Moment (yearly event) @ Hollywood Sculpture Garden w/ POTLUCK!

January 7, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - January 8, 2023 @ 1:00 am EST

**That Merlot Moment is our YEARLY event we have been doing in January for a bunch of years.**

Non-reactive dogs OK.
It’s an outdoor event.

Question: So what is “That Merlot Moment?”
Answer: Truly it could be a Pinot Epiphany! Or any other varietal.

That Merlot Moment is that time at the end of the year or just after . . .
. . . . AND . . .
. . . You were at home with glass of wine in hand and you made a resolution to be more social in the new year.

Keep in mind this was Pre-pandemic . . . Since we are Intra-Pandemic . . . Even moreso we are at home looking deep into our glasses of ruby colored elixir as we make a resolution (or in our turbulent times is more of a wish) to get out more in the new year. To make new friends. To make more friends. To go to new places. To be more social (in real life).

In short . . . . To NOT have the new year be like the last.

And so with perhaps a glass of Merlot in hand you started using the googley machine to try and find a way to make that happen.

Suddenly you have this Meetup thing . . .And curiously you have this very event before you. . . . and you, . . . OMG . . . just clicked RSVP=YES.

And that brings you to this very moment . . . and this very event.

This event is outdoors in a super-funky, pretty and cute location of The Hollywood Sculpture Garden. Thus we will complete the circle and have more wine to seal the deal.

**This is intended as a “New To Meetup Mixer.” Meaning if you are new to Meetup, or new to the group, been in the group for a while but not attended an event or even just new to the city, . . . then come.**

A perfect way to meetup some quality people over some even better wine.

**And very perfect if this is your first meetup ever!! Come join us.**

If you are an existing member, . . . then you are equally welcome. After all . . who will be the welcome wagon for all the new people?

What do I have to do now?

**SECOND** you need to pick up a bottle of Merlot or bring a dish to the event.

**THIRD** you need to show up (at the event) with your best self and be ready for an awesome year ahead (or at least one better than the year past)

I know what you are thinking . . . will this be fun? is this a cool place? will there be people as cool as me there? or even . . . . I’m not cool & I am shy/introverted . . . will I be able to fit in and enjoy too? What is I am attending Solo? Will I fit in or will I be able to socialize? Or what if this is my first meetup ever? Is this a good first meetup for me?

**And the answer is yes to all.**
