Our annual member appreciation wine and food pairing event has become a perennial favorite for members over the last several years. Unlike other events hosted SIMCAC, where senior technology executives are drawn together based on shared professional ambitions and interests, this special celebration provides an ability to build and deepen friendships and community in ways that our other events simply can’t match. Whether that’s due to the inclusion of significant others, or simply the flow of good food and wine, it’s part of SIMCAC’s special sauce that makes membership such a beneficial and meaningful investment. That’s why our board couldn‘t imagine skipping this year’s celebration, and why so many volunteers (including spouses) were eager to make sure that wouldn’t happen. So, after weeks of preparation, long days of hand-etching wine glasses, and hours of packaging and distribution, we were finally able to come together on Saturday, July 18th for a SIMCAC event that, while virtual, felt almost normal. After a brief period of mingling, our chef (Anna Rendon of the ChiquiChef) and our sommelier (Andy Meyrowitz of Schneider’s of Capitol Hill) guided attendees as they paired Cava and Garnacha with a charcuterie board and desserts. Favorites included the silky-smooth chicken liver mousse pate and the gorgeous and delicious panna cotta in dark chocolate tulip cups. Throughout, Anna and Andy answered a broad set of questions about wine and food as members and their significant others laughed and exchanged wine and food stories. It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been full of personal and professional challenges, but it's times like these when community is more important than ever. As a board, we are committed to continue to bring you that and more. We wish you a wonderful rest of the summer, and encourage each of you to continue to leverage the connections this group provides. As such, if you need help finding a member with a specific specialty or common interest, please reach out to a board member. We also encourage you to attend our programs through the end of the year, as we have some amazing things planned.
