Wine Down Wednesday Hot

Wine Down Wednesday

Sometimes you just need something to get you through the work week and “Wine Down Wednesdays” are the perfect way to get over the hump!

Pick some feel-good movies


This is where you can have a bit of fun! When choosing movies, you can either aim for modern favorites or old-school classics.

Think cult favorites from your residents’ teenage years, and other fun classics that will leave your residents with the warm and fuzzy feeling on their way home. Your choices may depend on the seasons, but you’ll all have more fun with movies that people know the plot inside and out!

Romantic comedies are great, but try to stay away from genres like thriller, horror, and overly loud action films. The idea is to leave your residents feeling relaxed and at ease after they leave your event - not amped up with adrenaline pumping through their veins after leaving your clubhouse!


***BONUS*** If you don’t want to show a movie you can also other activities into the wine and snacks mix like canvas painting, live music, dancing, poetry readings, open mic. nights, or even self-improvement and TED-inspired talks from local residents!


Tantalize the taste buds!


Serve a variety of hors-d'oeuvres and other simple snacks!

This is where you can get a bit fancy if you like and serve up both simple and elegant appetizers to accompany the wine.

Make up some tasty cheeseboards, and serve up appetizers both cold and hot.

***TIP*** Stock you mini fridge ahead of time and pick up some delicious pairings at your local Trader Joes or other gourmet food store in advance. Chill whatever needs it well in advance of the event and keep a microwave and microwavable dishes available on site for heating up the hot snack on Wednesdays!

Ready to Wine Down?


Where would we be without the wine!

Depending on the rules in your community you can both purchase and provide the wine and snacks free of charge or ask residents to bring their own!

To make for a fun recurring event you can subscribe to a “Wine of the Month Club’ in addition to picking up some good deals from local stores. This will add some elegant and special vintages to your more budget-friendly wines and allow you to do a bit of taste-testing each month!

You can either pay for all of the costs out of pocket or invite residents to pay a nominal fee to participate (which might mean better wines!)


***TIP*** For an extra feel-good feeling, include a charity component to your group event. Invite residents to promote and advocate for their charitable and volunteer organizations in the community.



After this event, your residents are sure to feel relaxed and ready to take on the rest of the week in stride!
