North London group

no postings yet… it’s not so much a sub-forum (except maybe this thread) as a group of members who can message each other in bulk. Maybe I sholud send a doodle round to kick things off.


#22

Hi everyone, I’m in West Hampstead and have a 4 year old son who is with me 50% of the time (divorce is the way to go). If we do any meet-ups- I’m keen! There is a wine tasting place locally called Tannin and Oak as well…


#23

I am not going to be of any use to you people unfortunately! I have run the U3A wine group in belsize park now for 9 years…you have (i think) to be over 50 and retired or semi retired to join -it stands for university of the 3rd age! We meet 9 times a year at their belsize park hq on haverstock hill; so if you are a certain age, get on the U3A website and join us!
Er- I should also add that it is very popular and there is a waiting list!
Good luck to you all for trying to start a group- I am happy to give basic help/advice if needed/wanted.
Martin Raybould. (grandfather to 4 and 2 more on the way! )

Does it count if I’m over 50 in my mind?!


#25

Am I the only one here without kids??


#26

PS - based in Archway :wink:

Thanks Laura,

I’ve signed up to the Group. We’re in Islington (Canonbury). Sounds like fun.

Thanks, Anna - I’ve just added you to the group!

If anyone else is interested in joining - you just need to click ‘Join’ against any group you’re interested in on the Groups Page.

Is there still that wine shop in Tufnell Park that does wine events?


#30

Thank you!! Much appreciated


#31

Indeed! Thearer of Wine is still there and they still do tasting events. A friend of mine leads some of the tastings and he’s rather good at it.


#32

So should we try to organise something again? I’m sure someone set up a doddle thing but I can’t find it!

Sounds like we should aim for a venue close to a Northern Line station, or are people so local that a cab-ride is the way to travel?


#33

I’m in - another one with two kids (anyone sensing a link between parenting and drinking?). Having just passed WSET3, keen to build knowledge and improve palate.


#34

Maybe time for another Doodle? My 2019 is beginning to get under control and we’ve quite a large number of people here, so even if only a quarter of us could agree on a date, it would be worth doing.


#35

Doodle is still up here:

Goes to end of march so might still be OK!


#36

I just updated the Doodle (to delete nights I’m now tied up/away on).

What sort of event are we thinking? A dinner a bit like the one held on Monday? A self-organised tasting (if so, what venue?). Group visit to a merchant’s event or tasting?


#37

I’ve had a crack at the doddle.

Would be up for a self organised tasting or a meal


#38

Is it possible to delete columns from the past?!


#39

So hopefully Rifka, Juan, Anna, James et al. will be along soon to say when children duties allow!


#40

Yeah I’ll edit it in a bit

edit: edited!
