Good Friends! Good Cause! Good Times!
The 3rd Annual Baccha Bash integrates social and professional networking with philanthropy. The event is presented by Seacrest Partners and The Paint the Town Red Committee for the local American Red Cross. This event is an exciting and competitive blind wine tasting where even the loser gets to take something home. The competition is based on teams of one to four participants admitted by bringing 3 bottles of a favorite (the same) wine to the event.
Our namesake, Bacchus, is the Roman deity of wine and merriment who represents not only the intoxicating power of wine, but also its social and beneficial influences. At the event, 2 of each team's 3 bottles are bagged, tagged and ranked by each participant. The 3rd bottle is set aside and left unopened. The teams that brought the highest ranked wines divvy up each team's 3rd unopened bottle, except for the lowest ranked wine which will be returned to the team that brought it. Must be present to win.
The event will be held on Friday, February 10, 2012, from 7-9pm, at The Rebel Room (above Johnnie Ganem’s Package Shop) Tickets are $40 per person. Space is limited so get your tickets now by reserving them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
