Our first meeting of 2014 will be Wednesday, March 12. We will start at4:00 at Beverages and More at 2940 N Main St„ Walnut Creek, 94597, to sample 10 wines accompanied by assorted cheeses and crackers, and we’ll be able to take advantage of their five cent sale which this time is mix and match. You don’t have to buy two bottles of the same wine to get the five cent per bottle deal, and that’s really attractive. Cost of the tasting is $15 per person, paid at the door.
We are a group of SIRS who like to get out of the house once in awhile and share a good meal and some lively conversation. Each month one of us acts as a host, chooses a restaurant in the area and arranges for a table for the group, usually about ten. There are a wide variety of places where we dine from Italian, American, Mexican, Chinese or whatever. Of course the prices have to be reasonable. Some of us may even share a bottle of wine. We usually meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 PM and are Gene McManus hosted our last dinner at The Claim Jumper in Concord, and as usual the food was good and the evening an enjoyable one.
Bon Wadors will be our host on Tuesday March 4th and we will be meeting at the: Greenery Restaurant, which is at the Diablo Hills Golf Course, 1551 Marchbanks Dr. Walnut Creek. Meet at 5:30pm.
Come join us for good food and lively conversation.

This month’s CFWA tasting at Sir Joe Karg’s Winery was well attended by 15 thirsty Sirs. Joe’s sandwiches, potato salad and 4 Bean Salad were delicious and provided a solid base for the tasting to follow. We sampled 15 wines, 6 whites and 9 reds. Continue reading
For those of you that played Boundary Oak on January 27, you are aware of the change in tee times. We have been advised that our times for February 19 have once again been delayed, this time to 10:30. Your Golf Committee feels the new time is unacceptable and the decision was made to play Diablo Creek instead. The new sign up sheet is on the website. We realize this is short notice (fee is $40.00) so payment should be mailed in ASAP or at our next luncheon. In addition, Mike Hennessey has agreed to be at Diablo Creek early and accept payment Diablo Creek prefers not to process individual payments and would rather receive a single check.
The next meeting of CFWA will be held at Sir Joe Karg’s home in Alamo at 11:30 AM Wed February 12, 2014. The directions given in the Hotline article were incorrect. The right way is: From Alamo, Walnut Creek, and points north take I-680 south, take the Stone Valley Blvd West exit, turn right on Stone Valley Blvd, left on Danville Blvd, left on Rae Anne Dr, left on Adrienne Dr, and right on Sandra Ct. Look for the grape vines.
From Danville and points south, take I-680 north, take El Cerro west exit, turn right on Danville Blvd. then right on Rae Anne Dr and continue as above.
Bon Wadors, Chairman (937‑8160) announces that Gene McManus will host the February 4th Dinner which will be at: The Claim Jumper, 1981 Diamond Blvd., Concord (798‑4300) in the Willows shopping center across from the Hilton Hotel.
You are invited to join us for good food and lively conversation.
The first luncheon for our Branch this year was very well attended. Not only did we have a good turn out, as it seems we have at all January luncheons, but the look was enhanced by the fact that the Hilton Hotel allowed us to use a third section of the ballroom at no extra cost. This, of course, made everything look bigger and more impressive. The speaker, economist Dr. Jay Tontz, gave an interesting speech and except for a few audio problems, that we are working to correct, our new Big Sir stumbled through the luncheon presentation with only a few glitches so all in all it was a reasonable start to 2014.
