Well from the amount of warm emails I received and the buzz at the venue last Thursday night the Matchmaker For Hire/Church and State Singles Event was a total hit. I had a great time loved the food, loved the wine. I had a lot of fun reading your responses to the question “What kind of wine would you be and why” prior to the event when I was doing the matching, there were some truly imaginative narratives. Kim Pullen featured some very good tasting wine paired with some amazing appys created by Church and States Candace Hartley (the deep fried shrimp was my favourite , followed closely by the Lamb slider(s), I had a couple I couldn’t help myself.)
A shot of Jill and I just before heading to Church and State winery. I was a little nervous about the speech I was going to give that night, I’m not a natural public speaker, but I got through it none the less.
Kim Pullen helped us understand the wine parings and little history of the origins of Syrah/Shiraz debate.
The best part of the night was watching as people went through their lists and searched out their matches.
We even had a raptor
Here’s some more random shots of people mingling :
