DIVOT October 2017
By Janet Lawless Christ
At a recent House Committee meeting, when asked how our new “Any Wine Any Time” program was being received, our beloved Food and Beverage Director, Juan, with a perfectly straight face most seriously said, “There’s a lot of BUZZ around the Club!” Seriously that has to be the best pun ever delivered in a committee meeting. EVER. Of course the Club is buzzing. With our new found ability to purchase oceans of wine for a teen tiny percent above wholesale and then bring them to the club with NO corkage fees many members are perpetually BUZZED! Though they all seem very mellow and merry! Which is just how we like them!
Truly if you are not clear on “Any Wine Any Time” ask any of our fabulous staff! The concept is marvelous and the buzz is sublime!
And to top that off now that there’s a hint of autumn in the air you can add our October Wine Festival to your calendars. On Saturday, October 21 at 5 o’clock on the dot, the Club will transform itself into an adult version of Disney Land — “The Happiest Place on Earth”. For a ridiculously low price you can taste a glorious galaxy of wines by dozens of vintners and purveyors. And furthermore, the entire Clubhouse is laden with downright delectable appetizers and deserts that flow from every server, nook and cranny. And yet again you can order another cellar-full of deliriously delicious wines. I suggest you start fasting right now so that you can consume all the food and wine. Fast I said — that does NOT apply to wine consumption, between now and then of course!
Also, be on the lookout for some super exciting new touches here and there that are sure to bring more overall JOIE DE VIVRE to our Club campus (…the exact nature of which I cannot report in detail at the time of this writing). This year’s House Committee Chair Bob Mettler has assembled a House Committee which is laser focused on enhancing the atmosphere and member experience at the Club. Stand by and buckle your seat belts! It’s going to be a joyous ride!
