Um…wine club could use a few more wine clubbers. Here’s the thing; Amber started it up with enough people to fill an average Chicago apartment and make enough noise to annoy the neighbors. Three years later, people have moved away, flaked out, have to work or study, get sick, or just have a lot of out-of-town plans over the weekends. This is all very understandable, but I think we need to add some more members so when people can’t make it, it is still a decent sized group. Because it is a LOT of fun and I would hate to see it die. Right now, I am breaking the first rule of wine club, which is don’t talk about wine club (heh).
Regardless of the attendance, Andrea put together a fantastic little party for the night. We still managed to get through all the bottles with just 7 people. And had no trouble with the pizza, Vosges chocolate, and other goodies. Ballet and other dance lessons were given in the dining room, and Justin had to call and check on the wearabouts of his wife around 1 am, so it was clearly a fun time with great company.
Andrea’s apartment is one of my favorites that I have visited in the city. She is always a great host. Here place was lit by candles last night–so the light is low–but I think you will get the idea.
