As the aircraft carrier that is the Tennessee legislature inexorably changes its course toward allowing the sale of wine in grocery stores, the folks behind the Red White and Food group have declared today "Social Media Day" to continue to spread the word. They are asking like-minded consumers to help publicize their efforts by leveraging Facebook, Twitter, blogs etc. Here's how you can help:
Many Red White and Food members like you have been vocal about your support for wine in retail food stores. You've contacted your legislators, told your friends about the issue, and some have even written letters to the editor.
Your support has made the campaign a phenomenal success. And we're very close to what we believe is a huge milestone.
If we add 800 people, we'll reach the incredible accomplishment of 25,000 members.
Please help us spread the word by participating in the Where's the Wine? Social Media Day this Thursday.
