Goodbye February, Hello March! 
 
Mar. 1, 2010 3:19 pm 
Goodbye February, hello March! This weekend I got to attend to GREAT events in Seattle to end the month of Feb – both included great wine, great food, and great friends!
 
{Saturday, the 27th} It took almost a year to put together the Junior League of Seattle’s Gala (I should know, I was on the committee). Allrecipes got a starring role in the event! All VIP table guests got to walk away with one of our fantastic reusable bags – the sea of orange was awesome to see when you walked into the ballroom at the Four Seasons. There was also a fun ad in the catalog (Thanks JLS for supporting the Seattle community!) w/some delicious cookies as the feature.
 
{Sunday, the 28th} Seattle Food & Wine Experience was an event I wanted to go to last year but had scheduling conflicts (why I couldn’t clear my calendar for food & wine, I don’t remember). This year the event was in the perfect place for Seattle – the Seattle Center. With over a dozen local restaurants & (I think) about 80 wineries to taste from, it was the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I was able to send a tweet before the event from @AllrecipesNews (for those of you on Twitter, be sure to become a follower!). Due to the poor cell phone service, that is where the tweeting stopped…right inside the front door. However, I made the most of the event. Left lots of our new fun business cards with our url, Facebook url, & Twitter url on the tables set up for guests to enjoy their wine & food. Also walked away with a list of reasonable priced wines to pair with the appetizers in my Recipe Box. Next time-find me with the Allrecipes bag, I might just have one for you!
 
{Where to go next?} What are the Seattle ‘peeps doing for St Patty’s Day ;)
 
Have a great week everyone!
