I personally have not attended one of their events, but their first event was in Napa last Friday, 3/12. According to their Facebook page, Napa Valley Meetup was founded on 01.01.10. After doing a quick search on Twitter, there is some chatter about the event, so people do attend and tweet about it. I actually heard about this through a tweet yesterday, but can't call recall who tweeted it. I tried searching the tweet, to no avail. Feel free to retweet this and share this cheap date idea!
UPDATE 03/19/10: I received an email update about the event: Reservations are requested, meaning that you can show up at the door and sign in (or save time by registering now online to print out your ticket). They request that everyone use #TasteNapa when tweeting about the event. Not sure if I am going to make it yet, but I am sure it will be fun. This may not be the most romantic date, but heck it's free wine AND apps!
