A Taste of the Caribbean!

Seattle’s Caribbean sandwich shop Paseo has been garnering national attention: Anthony Bourdain said it was a must-visit stop when in Seattle. Yelp named it the #3 restaurant in the United States. And the Food Channel awarded its Caribbean Roast sandwich the #2 sandwich in the country. And now, beginning this summer, you can enjoy its flavors at your next event thanks to its new catering offerings!

Applause, Applause

Fam Connections

As I write this, I am sitting in the Hilton Anchorage getting ready to head out for a day of tours and adventures with a group of about 30 event planners. About two weeks ago, I was in Vancouver, BC with a group of three other editors/writers doing the same thing in that city. Yeah. I know. I have a pretty fabulous job. And so, I wanted to give a shout out to the CVBs who plan these trips and help me get better acquainted to everything our region has to offer so that I can, in turn, introduce you to new places and things to do when you’re planning a meeting or event.

Best of the Northwest 2015 Editor Picks

I once saw a T-shirt that read, “Alcohol: Because no great story ever started with a salad.” While I’m not sure that is actually true, booze and brews can certainly make a party that much more enjoyable. So this year, I salute some of our region’s finest distilleries and breweries that also happen to offer on-site event space. Cheers!
