Wine Tasting and Networking is a Success!

By Joseph Salazar

IMG_7472Last week’s Wine Tasting and Networking Event at the Blue Room was a fun and lively event. Over 50 members of the UMKC and Kansas City communities came out for a night of jazz, wine and good times.




IMG_7499Attendees sampled six different types of wine and tested the accuracy of their palates by guessing which sample went with which type. The red wines, including a complex Malbac and smooth Pinot Noir were challenging for even seasoned tasters to distinguish. However, even the amateur wine enthusiasts were able to distinguish between the white wines, which included a Chardonnay and sweet Moscato.


IMG_7484Many of our guests were old friends but the event was also a great opportunity to make new friends and professional contacts under a cloud of smooth jazz sounds. We loved getting to meet a group of sorority sisters from Delta Phi Beta and were thrilled that Dr. Frisch from job the Department of Urban Planning brought a faculty candidate. We were happy that so many people came out and joined us for a night of fun.


Join us on for our next Her Art Project events on Tuesday, March 12 and Thursday, March 14. For more information on these and other events, please visit the Women’s Center on the web, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.
