    Join us for a European Holiday Wine Tasting as we “travel across Europe” with a tour guide to try three different wines – sparkling, white, and red – on Friday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. 

    Travel in the comfort and safety of your own home as we “fly” via “Zoom Airlines” for this Pre-Holiday wine tasting cocktail party.  No passport or full holiday attire is needed – just comfortable festive “travel” apparel.  Your travel companions to France, Italy, and Portugal will be fellow Encore members, their spouses/adult family members, and friends who will accompany you to enjoy comradery and a wine experience with a knowledgeable tour guide.

    Our tour guide/moderator (Rachel Halperin from ilovewining) along with our wine supplier (William from Harry’s Wine & Spirits) have “mapped out” our wine travels with three wines to try in preparation for the holidays. Rachel will guide us through Europe with information about the wines and their locations as we “visit” the vineyards.  Also, she will give us “pre-travel” recommendations as to food that would complement the wines for the tasting or to enjoy with them at another time.  Your “suitcases” with the wines, travel information, and food recommendations will be available for pick up at “baggage claim” (Pamela Crum’s) on Monday, November 30th For more information, contact Pamela at tdspcrum@optonline.net.

    Come travel with us as we party across Europe (and our neighborhoods)!  Bring your spouses, adult family members, and friends for this virtual “trip” and party at home.  Get ideas for dining, celebration, and gift giving.  The wines will be available for purchase at a discount after the wine tasting.

    Don’t wait for the “plane” to be full … sign up now!

    If you enjoy seeing movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movies with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics Corner.  Our next meeting will be on Zoom, Friday, January 8th, at 7:00PM. We will discuss and rate the following movies:

    The Queen’s Gambit – (Limited series on Netflix) A nine year-old orphan Beth Harmon is quiet, sullen, and by all appearances unremarkable. That is, until she plays her first game of chess. Her senses grow sharper, her thinking clearer, and for the first time in her life she feels herself fully in control. By the age of sixteen, she's competing for the U.S. Open championship. But as Beth hones her skills on the professional circuit, the stakes get higher, her isolation grows more frightening, and the thought of escape becomes all the more tempting. Based on the book by Walter Tevis.

    Deconstructing “Unorthodox” with Layah Lipsker | Events at the VilnaUnorthodox – (Limited series on Netflix) The series follows a young woman brought up in an ultra-Orthodox community in Brooklyn's Williamsburg district who strikes out for Berlin, leaving behind an arranged marriage and tight-knit faith community in part to pursue her goal discovering her path.
