Snooth event in Sonoma: 10/23

Posted by Philip James, Oct 15, 2008.

I'm going to be out in California for a few days next week, based in Santa Rosa, Sonoma and would love to meet a few of you Snooth users based out there. If you're around please come along. Here's the plan:

Thursday 23rd October, 7.45pm
Rosso Pizzeria and Wine Bar, Santa Rosa (click here for map )

We'll split the cost of the food (inexpensive) and everyone should bring a bottle of something or other. I'll bring a magnum of something special.

I'm from NYC, so why a pizza place? We'll, it was actually suggested by Dan Petroski, Assistant Winemaker of Larkmead Vineyards, who is actually a New Yorker himself, so I have high hopes. The place also gets good reviews . Dan should be there as well, although its mid harvest so dont be surprised if he falls asleep on us.

If you can make it just ping me (leave a message below, twitter , site message , contact us etc). Thanks

Have fun and all... but when can we expect *east coast* Snooth events, eh?

Rosso's is far more than a "Pizza Place"! Great atmosphere Great food & Wine in fact it is a Wine Bar too & they have some great wine you can't find everywhere like Fanucchi Vineyards Trousseau Gris! I would love to go but Thursdays are bad for me.

gr, where on the east coast were you thinking?

Philip, looking forward to raising a glass with you (all). I will keep you posted on my schedule and know that I am working hard to make it work..... Dan

@Youngegotist - hope to see you there.

@Peter - Dan picked it, but it certainly sounds good. Coming from Brooklyn, I have some high expectations though. If you can stop by thats great, but if not then there'll be another time i'm sure.

Philip, both Jo Ann and I will be there. See you Thursday.

Excellent Jon - looking forward to that and the bike ride sunday! Bring on the hills...

Hi Philip,
I'd love to join. I'm back working at Baldacci where I first met you! See you on the 23rd!

Love Rosso ... wish I could be there but I'll be off on another trip ... :-)

Reply by Philip James, Oct 20, 2008.

Brigid - excellent, looking forward to meeting you again.

John - next time buddy! You off somewhere nice this time?

I am flying back from Palo Alto to New York on the red-eye Thursday night. :( You are welcome to come out with John and I Wednesday night if you would like.

Reply by Philip James, Oct 21, 2008.

Rachel - I get out there very late Wednesday and then have to drive from San Jose to Sonoma, where I'm staying. You'll have to come to a NYC event if you are around when we do one...

Reply by Philip James, Oct 24, 2008.

Thanks to everyone who came last night - some great wines and good food. Til next time!

@Gr - OK, my bad - the 10th November in PA is looking unlikely. However, we'll do a Snooth event there one day... Sorry
