Please consider hosting this fun evening. 

Cellar Dwellers is one of the most enjoyable events in our neighborhood.  It is an evening of wine-tasting, good food, and fun conversation.  The host typically provides appetizers for the guests, and will choose the wine category for the guests to bring.  Sometimes, the host provides the drinks and the guests bring the appetizers.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.   Please contact Jane Nero at, if you would like to host an upcoming Cellar Dwellers.  Pick a month that works with your schedule, and let’s get the calendar filled up!

CHERRY CREEK EAST SINGLES - Catch us in September

If you love to watch movies, this is a great way to watch movies you may never have heard of before.  We have a great discussion and pass along other movie recommendations.  Flick Flack members get together quarterly to discuss a movie that we watch independently before the meeting.  The host picks the movie in advance and provides the beverages and light snack.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.  Movie options can include movies currently in the theater or movies that can be downloaded and watched at home.  New members are always welcome.  Please contact Jane Nero at if you are interested in joining.
