I'm very excited about our holiday celebration this week. I hope you'll be able to join us.
Here's everything you need to know, including what to bring (and what not to):
Potluck-Style Christmas Party at Miami Ave Wine Bar
When: Thurs, Dec 8th at 6 PM
Where: Miami Ave Wine Bar (LIKE them on FB)
311 1st Street, Indian Rocks Beach, FL 33785 (parking and entrance around back)
Who to Bring: FWA and non-members welcome
Spouse or Significant Other- Yes
Friends Who Enjoy Writing- Yes
Children under 18- No
What to Bring:
-Side dish to share
-A book you're ready to hand off to someone else for the book exchange.
-Donation items to enter the raffle like a bottle of wine (see DETAILS below).
NOTE: Please do not bring drinks
The owner of Miami Ave Wine Bar is not charging us to use her amazing venue, so please purchase beverages there. Wine, hard liquor, mixed drinks, sodas, etc will be available for purchase, and water will also be available for us.
Why: Win free stuff, eat good food, drink the best wine, and celebrate the holidays all while networking with local writers. Plus there is some great stuff at the Wine Bar, Book Nook, and Art Gallery if you're looking for Christmas gifts.
We will be holding a raffle for two $10 Starbucks gift cards!
In preparation for next year's Silent Auction at the FWA Conference, we're getting the baskets started.
How to enter the raffle: bring donations for FWA's Silent Auction baskets to promote children's literacy in Florida. Good items to donate would be books you've written, candles, "like new" books, new DVDs, wine stoppers, wine glasses or poolside wine glasses, wine openers, French presses, or coffee grinders, wine decanters or some things for an exercise or a cooking themed basket. Each donation receives one entry but EACH BOTTLE OF WINE DONATED WILL RECEIVE FOUR TICKETS! (A good place to get nice bottles that are still cost-effective is Trader Joe's).
Any questions? Need ideas for a side dish?
Feel free to email me! I look forward to seeing you Thursday!
