Ladies and gents, this is a call for single men in Dallas who enjoy wine. Help your guy friends out here and let them know about this awesome opportunity to drink free wine with a fun single lady…
You may already know her as "Dallas Foodie". She posts about food and drinks in her social media profiles and occasionally writes for this site. She is also a personal friend of mine, so I can vouch for her awesomeness. She has an extra pass for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes, guided wine tasting tour of GrapeFest, so I told her I'd help her find an eligible gentleman to be her guest. This tour isn't available to the general public, so it is a very unique opportunity for a lucky guy. She wanted me to clarify that this is not a "date", but there are 140 Texas wines you can taste, so it's sure to be a fun time!
If you know any guys who might be interested, send them a link to this page. Only the guys who write a comment or private message on this page, her blog, or in any of her Dallas Foodie social media profiles will be considered.
The only real criteria are that you're a single male living in the Dallas area and available to meet at GrapeFest on the evening of Fri. Sept. 13. You don't have to be a wine expert, just someone who enjoys drinking wine. If you can include a link to one of your social media profiles so she can see your first and last name with a clear photo, that will greatly increase your chances of getting picked. To be fair, you can view all of Danielle's personal and professional social media profiles linked on this page. She also needs to be able to contact the chosen guy, so be sure your Facebook profile can receive messages, your Twitter is not in private mode, or send her your email address in private.
I'll update this blog when she has someone confirmed, but his identity will be kept secret. Until then, share this article and keep letting your guy friends know about this awesome opportunity to drink free wine with a fun, single lady!
UPDATE: she has confirmed a lucky someone!
Every September, GrapeFest turns historic downtown Main Street, Grapevine into a 4-day festival of food, wine, arts, and live music. The highlight of the festival is the People’s Choice Wine Tasting Classic, the largest consumer-judged wine competition in the United States, with 140 wines from 39 Texas wineries. The festival starts on Thursday, September 12 and ends on Sunday, September 15, 2013. You can buy your tickets now online. Tip: don't wait to buy at the door because the prime time slots for the People's Choice tasting usually sell out in advance.
