LUSH University Village, 1257 S. Halsted Street
Friday, January 14th, 2011
Please join us for a wild & indulgent celebration at LUSH University Village, 1257 S. Halsted. 5 years, damn straight. Slinging wine, educating, and cultivating a love of the beverage lifestyle. My how the time flew by. Look how far we’ve come…and how many bottles we drank. Thank you for the support and good times! This party is for our amazing clients and friends.
We are itching for a party, and would love to kick it with you. We are inviting our wino friends to provide a delicious collection of wine, as well as a couple beer geeks to get the beer tapped. Snack Master Kelly is crafting a tasty, snacky party menu. We’ll be breaking out the fire pits on the patio, to keep us warm while we saber a few bottles. RSVP required, email@example.com.
[Please note that Ms. Rachel will bounce if necessary. This is NOT a party for all of Chicago. This was a party with an INVITATION to a list of clients. Do not just show up and expect free food and drink. Do not bring 8 friends for a free party. We are not a bar. If you break something, you best expect the wrath and a bill. I am watching you. Help keep it FUN!]
hosts MOLLYDOOKER Winery
‘Blend a Hand’ Seminar
MOLLYDOOKER (Aussie for left hander), is a cheeky, fabulous winery in McClaren Vale, Australia, under the brilliant hands of Sarah and Sparky Marquis. This dynamic duo is a remarkable husband/wife team that loves what they do and have fun doing it, and make wines that definitely exhibit that passion. Wines are crafted with the ‘wow’ factor in mind, and each bottle is totally intent on shaking things up a bit. Sparky created a specialized watering program and an entire new measuring system to better translate the science behind the big flavor punch and luscious textures of the Mollydooker wines. Let’s get a bit messy and wild…
LUSH adores the punchy labels and indulgent wines of Mollydooker, and sent out a big, loud invitation to Sarah and Sparky to come on by, in person, and hang with the Lushes. It is an incredible honor to welcome Sarah and Sparky to the shop to not only share their wines with us, but also to teach us some of the secrets to blending great wine. This seminar is totally hands-on and folks will have the opportunity to actually blend their own wines under Sarah and Sparky’s guidance. So, join LUSH for a crash course seminar in blending (tasting, drinking, and nibbling) with Sparky. There will, of course, be plenty of wine to sip on. AND, in true LUSHified style, with will be throwing down and hosting a 4 course PIG ROAST, as well. Expect yummy, wine-friendly food (the menu will be all along the lines of meatmeatmeat and finger-licking good barbecue on the grill with all the fixins’). This seminar is going to be crazy fun and super informative, as well as tasty, and we really want y’all to come play with us! Shake up your routine, blend your own wine, and love learning. EAT. DRINK. Grab a few friends, your mom, or a hot date and get on down with Mollydooker. This is education the fun way…casual, interactive, and extremely delicious. Reservations are required, and registration will close on July 31st. $75 inclusive of tax and tip. Please RSVP immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
