New York, NY (PRWEB) February 2, 2006
A chance to meet new people and learn about wines is a unique come-on for a series of singles-style wine tasting parties set for New York City.
The party, billed as a special wine tasting event for singles, is the brainchild of LeeAnne Homsey, a New York restaurant manager for the past 15 years and current owner of http://silverplatternyc.com Her website is geared towards combining wine tasting with a social service for those tired of the bar scene.
Parties are held all over Manhattan starting at 6:00 Or 7:00. The affairs are reservations only with reservations available online and, if available at the door. Cost is $30-$60 each for online reservations or $60-$80 for tickets at the door.
Reservations are limited since Homsey says she wants to maintain a strict 50-50 percentage of both men and women.
She advises participants to "dress to impress." Featured wines at the event are hand picked.

"I started introducing people to each other at the restaurants," Homsey says of the inspiration for her business. I found all anyone ever needed was an introduction and they find things they have in common after that."
Adding wine tasting to introductions "gives everyone a common denominator that starts things rolling," she says, noting that her restaurant experience taught her that people are interested in meeting others but often are too shy to actually meet others in different settings.
Many people like Doug Bergman of Manhattan feel it's a nice way to spend a few hours that doesn't cost a lot. "LeeAnne is very good at what she does. I highly recommend this party/service to my friends and I hope it takes off for her. She deserves it and this town needs it."
Ciprianna Tarrini of Manhattan adds, "I always meet new and interesting people. This kind of thing is exactly what NYC needs and obviously it's what the people want otherwise they wouldn't show up or keep coming back. Thanks LeeAnne for putting a great idea into action!"
Homsey keeps coming up with new ideas such "Singles Wines Tasting 101" and adding chocolate and cheese to the wine tasting too.
