PLEASE ALLOW LOCATION WHEN USING THE APP! The core functions of our app are based on location, so without it you will lose important app functionality. We do not store or use any location data other than to direct you to points of interest based on your proximity.
Also, please allow notifications to more easily know if anyone messages you or if we have any event, incentive, deal, discount, or any other useful piece of info we send out to everyone.
The Events section features a chronological list of events. Each event features info, description, contact links, live Google map, and instant access to purchase tickets (if applicable).
Events are displayed by category. By default, All (every event) is shown, and then you can select any category you like to display only events in that category.
The Map Icon at the lower right will take you to a live map showing events in relation to your location at that moment. This is useful to see what is going on around you no matter where you are when you open the app.
On the upper right corner of each event listing, you will see an icon to share the event, a bookmark icon to save the event to your Favorites, and a + icon to add the event to your device's calendar.
The Near Me section shows every Point of Interest - Events, Retail, and Bar/Dining - in relation to your location. By default, All is listed first, and then you can select any category to see only those Points of Interest.
On the lower right is a Map Icon that will display whatever you're looking at on a live interactive map. If you are in All, you will see everything on the map - map icon for Bar/Dining, purple flags for events, and red stars for retail establishments. If you are in any specific category and click the map icon, you will only see that category listed on the map.
On the upper right corner of each POI listing, you will see an icon to share the event and a bookmark icon to save the event to your Favorites.
Each listing has imagery, full info, description, contact links, and a zoomed-in interactive map.
The Gallery section is a standard photo gallery. You can view each picture, share the picture, or save it to your Favorites.
The Blog section is where we post anything and everything. Wine trends, recommendations, funny memes, videos - whatever we feel is interesting to the community.

The Blog is broken up by categories with the Wine category being shown by default.
The Podcast section has a list of our podcast episodes, as well as links to all the major podcast platforms so you can listen on any service you prefer, as well as subscribe.
We also have a list of shareable buttons so you can easily share the podcast in any way you would like, from sms and email to all the major social media.
The Members section shows all the Members who registered and created a profile on the app. It is broken down by Recent logins, Nearby (which shows if any members are within your vicinity), and All.

If you tap on any members Profile, you will see their full profile and from there have the ability to send a chat message.

The Forum is a free-for-all and anonymous way to post any question or comment to the entire community. You can use your name or an alias, and post a short message for all to see and respond to.
