Highland Park UNCORKED – register online

April 6th, 2014 Comments off

On-line registration is now open!

 

If you have never been to one of our winetasting events (or have a somewhat hazy recollection), here is the overview. Each person brings a bottle of their favorite wine, priced at $15 or less. You are assigned a table. The bottle is placed in a brown paper bag, given a number and eventually placed somewhere on your assigned table. You don’t worry about that, as you relax with the wines from the award winning Northwest Wine Academy, mingle with your neighbors, and munch on a wonderful spread of food prepared by our talented gastronomes.

For much more information, please go to our About the Event page.

The tables fill up fast, so register now to ensure that you have a seat.

Become a sponsor! Sponsorship is available, starting at the $100 level.

Lots of great prizes have been donated for the raffle drawings, so be sure to bring some cash or credit cards to buy tickets.

Did you know that the HPIC is owned by the neighborhood and run by members of the club, who volunteer their time? We are the ONLY club in Seattle like this, making Highland Park a truly unique place to live. A community creates a sense of camaraderie, belonging, security and support and the club is here to support the spirit of community by bringing neighbors together for wonderful events like UNCORKED, Corner Bar, Tailgate parties, weekly classes and special events.

All proceeds from Highland Park UNCORKED go towards improvements for your Highland Park Improvement Club.

HPIC Depave Day is this Saturday – March 22

March 19th, 2014 Comments off

We’re building an oasis in the asphalt – a courtyard, replacing a portion of the parking lot with permeable pavers and more gardens. So we have some asphalt that needs to be ripped up and taken away. Bring your muscles and whatever you need to vent this Saturday and help us hoist chunks of asphalt outta here. The asphalt will be prepped, scored and ready to rumble into a big Dumpster that will cart it away.

We will start at 10am till however long it takes. Lunch will be provided and activities for all ages. And yes, there will be beer and other refreshments after all that hard work.
