Remember Suite 410 on Stewart Street? It reopened last summer under new ownership, and there are some good people there trying to do some good stuff there. Could I be more specific? Yes, but I want to encourage you to go over there and talk to the bartenders. They’ll win you over.
On Thursday, January 20, Seattle’s own Robert Hess—a true cocktail luminary and the guy behind DrinkBoy and other boozy projects—stops by. You can pick up a signed copy of his book, The Essential Bartender’s Guide, for $10 and talk to him about how to make your mixed drinks much better.
The event is free, includes light appetizers, and begins at 6pm.
Also this Thursday, Poco Wine Room is hosting a tasting with one of my favorite Washington wineries, Dusted Valley Vintners. That costs $10 and lasts from 6 to 9pm. Dusted Valley owner Chad Johnson will be there to pour and chat.
