Dearest WRCAA ladies,
We had a BLAST at the first two monthly Wine Down Wednesday events in January and February! We are happy that we have a standing monthly event to attend that will be hosted in various locales in the DC Metro area. We are planning a few Wine Down Fridays over the Summer/Fall as well, so don't worry if you can't make Wednesdays work for now. Our goal is to have as many of us connect throughout the year at these networking events. We are also planning two fun springtime events, a Kidville party for the tots and a Spa Day for us ladies!
Our "inaugural" event in Washington, D.C., at the trendy wine bar Vinoteca kicked things off with a bang....literally. Despite a pretty rough thunderstorm, we had about 10 ladies spanning 4 decades of Washington Redskins Cheerleaders in attendance. We caught up over delicious wines and appetizers and discussed the upcoming Super Bowl weekend with high hopes for our own 'Skins next year! The second event took place this past Wednesday evening at popular wine spot Grapeseed in Bethesda, MD., and brought out some new faces to this event. One alumni member mentioned she rarely got to attend events because they are never in Bethesda and she was thrilled to hear about this one! We toasted our years on the sidelines and swapped stories of our "cheer" days. It's always great to catch up with old friends and connect with new ones, especially when we share such a fun common thread...of pom poms that is! ;)
We hope to see you at the next Wine Down event tentatively scheduled for March 27th in Virginia. Details to come...
