  1. We also went the first year (last year were away on vacation) and really enjoyed it. We'll also be attending next week. It's a very nice event for the price in a great venue. Fantastic food, wine, brews, and of course, lots of tomatoes!!
  2. If you don't require a view, and if Edmonds appeals, we love Epulo Bistro's brunch menu: http://www.epulobistro.com/menu.html
  3. Too funny! I lived in those apartments when I first moved here in 1994!
  4. Hey - that's my old boss! How did you find out about this? I have one of these cards but didn't hear anything! Do I need to sign up for alerts or something? I didn't get an alert either. It was on the "Taste Washington" FB page, and I jumped on it.

  6. Have you checked Cash & Carry? (I'd hit PFI for the buttermints if that fails or go online) I was thinking Costco - at least for the nuts? Might have a good substitute for the butter mints or carry them as well. Amazon has them - but I have no idea what a good price might be. Thank you! I always send other people to Cash & Carry but never remember to go there myself. They have both items, and they're close by, too. I appreciate your help!
  7. Hi all: need help sourcing the most inexpensive place to buy large quantities of Mixed Nuts and pastel Butter Mints. Helping BIL's wedding prep to place both on the tables. I live in Edmonds, so North would be most helpful. Thanks!
  8. He's been very depressed as of late. I hope that my hunch in incorrect!
  9. We've eaten at this location many times throughout the years in its various permutations. We tried the latest version, "Preservation Kitchen" for Restaurant Week. We were so happy with the service professionalism, the portion size, the perfect seasoning of the food, the pacing of the meal (waiter asked after the appetizer if we were ready for him to give the "fire now" order), wine selection, etc. We'll certainly go back for the regular menu!Click
  10. That's strange. I just received a Sunny Paris last week, and it was not powdered at all. I'd contact Customer Service and have them send you a new one. Oh, I should've asked if yours was in the bottle or the bag? I almost always only get my spices from them in bags to refill my bottles. Mine's in a bottle. The bag was too expensive. . . .($9 for a bottle of Sunny Paris!!!!). When I commented on the powdery-ness to the sales person, she said something like, "OH, that's just the outside, it'll be more chunky when you get past that," but it's ALL like that. I've been meaning to write to Penzey's about it, but I still haven't found their e-mail address on their website. I'm sure it's there somewhere, it's just a matter of finding it. But if they ask me to send it back, I probably won't bother unless they pay for postage. It would cost me close to half of what I paid to send it back (Canada Post is waaaaaay too expensive). Here ya go: If you have any questions regarding an order you have received, please e-mail us at customerservice@penzeys.com or call us toll-free at 1-800-741-7787. Please allow 24-48 hours for a response.

  14. I'm pretty sure I can spare some too. Cheers,
  15. On the news last night, I saw the sad news that Emory's has burned to the ground. Nancy Lesons post about it here. I don't know how I missed this post from September, but we occasionally go to Emory's too, since it's actually pretty close for us. The food has been predictable, if not that adventurous, and the service is wonderful. We'll really miss being able to head for Emory's when too tired to go to our more usual haunts down south. Hope they are able to re-build.
