Every time I start something new, (a job, an exercise program, a relationship), I picture a ticker tape parade in my head introducing the event. It gets me excited even though the reality is often much different. The job starts with an assault on the alarm clock, the exercise, an assault on my knees and the relationship, pretty much an assault on everything. However, this time it’s different. The excitement is real as I introduce to you a new group called Watch & Wine. We like to say we’re a movie group with a twist. We will meet every first Thursday starting November 3, 2011 to watch an independent film and discuss it afterwards over a glass of wine.
Today, we have a tent at the Taste Carolina Wine Festival in Colfax, NC to kick off things. Look for the Watch & Wine tent in the middle of the festival at Tent D18. We will be sampling what we think is the best pound cake this side of the Mississippi. Come visit us from noon to 6 p.m. and buy a piece of cake or a raffle ticket, both only $1. Proceeds for this event and all other Watch & Wine events benefit Urban Film Project. We look forward to seeing you under the rain of confetti which today may feel considerably like actual rain. I hope to see you there, but if not follow us all day on twitter at watchandwine.
