A Word from Chad ~ June 2015

June is a great month for life’s celebrations: from Father’s Day to graduations, weddings to end of school, June is the launchpad to a great summer ahead.

As a business, we are looking forward to the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, the patios opening at AQUA and El Gaucho Bellevue, the DeLille Legacy Winemaker Dinner at El Gaucho Portland, and a busy summer of travelers staying with us at the Inn at El Gaucho.

Besides making my summer plans, this is what’s on my mind right now: Social media. It continues to be all the rage, and I can’t help but to notice when people have their heads buried in their phones and there’s a human being right across from them. I personally am going to focus on going “old school” this summer, and enjoy some good face-to-face time with my friends and family.

The world is happening and unfolding right in front of us, not just in the cloud. I hope you’ll make an effort to join me in embracing “old fashioned” social networking: hug your dad for Father’s Day, don’t send him a text. Look up and see the world, don’t just read about it on Facebook.

Until Next Time,
Chad Mackay | President & COO
