A Word From Chad ~ February 2016

The next couple of months are packed full of great celebrations and events. With Valentine’s Day falling on Sunday this year, that gives us all extra time to dazzle a special someone. We still have reservations available for the weekend, but don’t wait too long. If you’re looking for something a little extra, join us for a Venetian Romance Cabaret show at El Gaucho Seattle’s Pampas Room, offered three nights of Valentine’s weekend. Make a weekend of it and stay at with us at the Inn!

March is Washington Wine month, and we are honored to host the 3rd annual Red and White Party at AQUA on March 31st, as a kick-off to “Taste Washington.” This is a magnum party featuring over 20 of the top wineries in Washington. Paired with an incredible array of food, this is a party you don’t want to miss.

From there, we roll right into Taste Washington weekend, April 2nd & 3rd, at CenturyLink Events Center. Along with our partners Taylor Shellfish, our teams will shuck 10,000 of the finest Puget Sound oysters, and ladle over 2,000 bowls of the Northwest’s best clam chowder to hungry attendees. Join us for the fun – event tickets are still available. Our Inn is sold out for the weekend, as we host writers and sommeliers from around the world, but there are great partner hotels for making it a weekend getaway.

And finally, if you happen to be over in the Walla Walla area, my “retired’ father just bought the Country Cupboard, a bakery in Dayton. He’s partnering with Aimee McGuire to keep the enterprise a part of the community tapestry. He continues to instill one of our core company values, “building community” wherever he goes, not only by helping build better communities, but also by providing a place for people to gather and celebrate.

Until Next Time,
Chad Mackay | President & COO
