wine-glassesLeschi Market and the Madrona Community Council have again collaborated for the Third Annual Fall Wine Tasting Event.  Come join your Madrona neighbors at glassybaby headquarters (map) on Saturday November 2nd from 6:00-8:30pm.

We will spare you the details since we have already written about the event but basically for $32.50 you can come drink some wine, eat some light hors d’oeuvre and meet some fellow Madrona and Leschi neighbors.  It is a fun event, one where you do not need to know anyone to have a good time, and well worth the ticket price.

Madrona This Weekend

A few things going on this weekend in Madrona.

Saturday night is the Madrona Wine Event.  Click the previous link for more details, but it should be a fun event.  You can buy tickets online but there will also be tickets available at the door.  The Madrona Wine Event will be at Glassybaby from 6:30 to 9:30 PM (Saturday).

Sunday is open gym at Madrona K-8 for kids 6 and under.  Click the link for more details, but it will be fun for the kids to run around and allow parents to get a better look at the Madrona school if you are undecided on where your little ones will be going for grade school.

Madrona HomeFinally, a shameless plug for my open house I am having on Sunday from 2-4 PM.  If you are shopping for real estate in Madrona, come by and check out my listing on the corner of 31st and Olive.  It is a fabulous brick house with territorial views of Husky Stadium and beyond.  Come and see the home or to ask me about Madrona real estate and the overall Seattle real estate market.

Madrona Wine Tasting Event Less Than 3 Weeks Away

The Madrona Community Council‘s 2nd Annual Wine Tasting Event is less than 3 weeks away.  Buy tickets now so you can join the fun.

Saturday, November 3Madrona Wine Tasting
6:30-9:30p
Glassybaby Studios, 34th & Union
Tickets $30

 

Wineries/Distributors provided by Leschi Market.

Food provided by 34th Avenue restaurants.

The event goes to support the Madrona Community Council, a 501c3.  In addition, a portion of all glassybabys sold that evening will be sent to Madrona K8. They’ll use these funds to improve the performance space in the “gymacafeterium” for future music and theater productions.  Music and the arts are really expanding at Madrona, and a good performance space is a big need for them in coming years.

So far, Five Star and Wilridge from Washington, and a representative from Small Vineyards, an Italian importer who only works with the smallest producers in Italy, all family owned and operated, sustainable wineries will be joining the event.

Tickets Available for Second Annual Madrona Wine Tasting Event

Madrona Wine TastingThe date and venue have been set for the second annual Madrona Wine Tasting Event which is being put on by the Madrona Community Council to help support all the things that are sometimes taken for granted in our Seattle neighborhood such as Madrona Mayfair, Madrona Blossoms, Madrona Newsletter, Halloween Party, etc.  The event is scheduled for Saturday, November 3rd from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at Glassybaby studios (map).  Unlike last year, the Madrona Wine Tasting Event fortunately does not conflict with any Husky football home games so there is no excuse (well maybe one or two) to not make the event.  Tickets are $30 per person and are available to buy online.

Tickets include appetizers donated by Madrona restaurants, wine tasting from local growers, discount on bottle wines, and Glassybabys for sale with 10% of the proceeds going to Madrona K-8.

Only Walk Up Tickets Available for Madrona Wine Tasting Event

Madrona Wine TastingOnly walk up tickets are available for the Madrona Wine Tasting Event this Saturday (November 5th).  The event starts at 6:30 PM and will be at the Glassybaby studio.  Tickets are available at the door for $25 per person and include free wine tasting and light food.  To learn more please read my previous blogs on the Madrona Wine Tasting Event.

Madrona Wine Tasting Event in Just Over Two Weeks

Madrona Wine TastingThe Madrona Wine Tasting Event is just a little more than two weeks away: Saturday, Nov 5th, from 6:30 PM to 9 PM at the Madrona Glassybaby studio.  The event, which is $25 per person, includes free wine tasting and light food.  This fun event will raise money for the nonprofit Madrona Community Council and Madrona K-8 School.

Since my previous blog about the wine tasting event,  several local Madrona restaurants have agreed to help with the hors d’oeuvres.  So far, St. Cloud’s, Naam, Bistro Turkuaz and Hi Spot have all agreed to participate.  Others may also get involved, but even if they do not, the food at the event should be fantastic.

Click the link to buy tickets for the Madrona Wine Tasting Event.  (Space is limited to 150 people and the event is expected to sell out).

UPDATE: Madrona’s Wine Tasting Event

Madrona Wine MerchantsI previously blogged details about the fun Madrona Community Council’s Wine Tasting Event that takes place Saturday, Nov 5th, from 6:30 PM to 9 PM at the Madrona Glassybaby studio.  The event, which is $25 per person, includes free wine tasting and light food.  In addition, if you wish, you can purchase Glassybabies as well as your favorite wine at the event.

Since my last blog more details have come out:

  1. Tickets are limited to 150 people.  The event has been selling well, so tickets are expected to sell out prior to the event.  There is still time, but if you are thinking about going you should buy your tickets online and not expect to buy a ticket at the door unless you want to risk being turned away.
  2. Glassybaby has agreed to donate 10% of the proceeds to Madrona K-8 for any Glassybaby sales at the event.  Thus, while the event (ticket sales and wine sales) goes to support the Madrona Community Council and the events/things they support (Madrona Mayfair, Halloween Event, Madrona Blossoms, etc.), our local Madrona school will also benefit from the Wine Tasting Event with every Glassybaby that is purchased.

Hope to see you there at the Madrona Wine Tasting Event.
