I'm looking to join a tasting group in the Chicago area, preferably in the northwest suburbs. If anyone knows of one or would like to help start one let me know! I'm currently studying for the certified exam so studying with other people on the same level would be great, or anyone who recently passed that one. Thank you!
I’d love to start one! I’m looking for one as well, also studying for certified. I’m on the far north side of Chicago
Me too! I'm taking my certified in June in Milwaukee. I'm in the north suburbs.
Kelly, Kevin, feel free to send me a message and let me know what days/times work best for you. One other person already messaged me about starting a group. Kevin, I'm planning on taking my certified in June too!
I recently, very recently, moved to Chicago. I am also studying for my Certified Sommelier Exam as well. I’m trying to get my feet on the ground here and hopefully join a some weekly tasting groups as well. I’ll typically be available during the morning or early afternoon. Please let me know if you end up creating a group. This already 4 people, that counts as a group. Let’s start it!
It's a great city, you're going to love living here! Hopefully everyone will figure out what days/times works best for them and figure out a time to set up our first tasting. I'll let you know when I hear from everyone else. Mornings are usually good for me too.
I am available most mornings, I am in Rogers Park, near Skokie Wednesday’s and Sunday’s are ideal.
I think I'm kind of far from everyone here, I'm in Barrington. Most weeks I have Wednesdays off so that's good for me too. I think we should just choose a day most of us can make work, find a place to meet, and everyone bring some wine to start tasting. Does next Wednesday work for anyone?
I can do next Wednesday!
Does next Wednesday work for you?
Let's plan on it! What time works best for you?
Anytime works for me on Wednesday.. the question is where? We could do one of our houses or I can also ask my boss if we can do it at my restaurant which is 2 blocks from Ogilvie (if you have Metra access) or there is I’m sure a number of byob places In between we could try to arrange something with... thoughts?
I'm good with one of our houses, I'm happy to host, though it is almost an hour drive between Barrington and Rogers Park. The Metra would be easy too so let me know if you have any preference.
Alright, so I cleared it with my boss. We can use the space at my work. I don’t drive so Barrington would be a bit of a challenge for me. I’m going to message the other people on this thread and see if we can get more than two of us to join. But I was thinking sround 10:30 Wednesday morning?
Hey Kevin, how do you feel about meeting up for a tasting on Wednesday morning downtown?
How does Wednesday morning downtown work for you?
