Food and Socializing
This is a social group primarily aimed at encouraging VENC’s long term members (members since 2014 or earlier) to maintain connections with old friends. Activities will vary depending on the host and spouses may be included in a few activities.
The Happy Appy Group will meet in various venues around Victoria that offer “Happy Hour” to enjoy great drinks and appetizers with new friends. Group members will take turns each month to identify the next great appy place. The time will be between 4 and 6 PM.
Meets: The first Wednesday of the month
Join us to explore the bounty of our province and our Island. Activities include visits to farmers markets, farms, and wineries, local producers, collaboratively prepared gourmet/theme meals, restaurant visits, or just swapping recipes and talking food.
Come meet some new and old friends at one of the Pubs around town, once a month. Have some food and drinks to wrap up the week. Spouses and partners are welcome.
Meets: 2nd Sunday of the month at 6:30 pm
Each member will have a turn hosting at her home this monthly event. Ladies potluck does not include partners. The hostess contacts members by Evite and coordinates what type of dish each member will bring.
Meets: 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm
It’s a great way to get to know other members and some local restaurants. Members meet monthly at various restaurants to relax and enjoy brunch and great conversion.
