Grand Opening of Cascade Coffee Works
Cascade Coffee Works, the newest addition to the Seattle Coffee Works family, has been in soft open mode since October 30. But come Wednesday the team will officially kick things off with what they do best: coffee. From 8am–4pm, the entire menu—even fancy drinks like pour-overs and lattes—will be free, and the first 300 guests will also get their hands on a $10 drink coupon for future coffee emergencies. Following the grand opening, Cascade Coffee Works will shift to its regular hours, 6am–7pm. Celebrate the onslaught of happy hour with a glass of wine (or two—we’re not one to judge).

Crowley Wine Dinner at How to Cook a Wolf
One of the best bonuses of chilly weather: hearty harvest dinners. At How to Cook a Wolf, chef Nicole Matson is hosting an evening of seasonal dishes with a Crowley Wine pairing. Look forward to a pear salad, seared foie gras, Yukon potato gnocchi, squab confit, and so much more. Tyson Crowley will be present during the entire dinner to discuss his wines, including a side-by-side comparison of two of his 2015 pinot noirs. There will be two seatings, one beginning at 5:30pm and the second at 8:30pm. The meal rings in at $135, and diners should call ahead to save a spot, as there are just 24 at each seating.

Taste of the Seahawks
Sure, snacks and football go together like peanut butter and jelly, but those wings and chips are usually enjoyed on the couch in front of the TV. Not this time around: At Taste of the Seahawks, guests can stroll around the Delta Sky360° Club at CenturyLink Field to munch on bites from restaurants like Lark, The Lakehouse, Ma’ono, and Copine. Seahawks players will also be there to mingle, and the entertainment for the night comes from the Craig Terrill Band—yes, the former Seahawk Craig Terrill. Over 20 restaurants and almost 50 wineries, breweries, and distilleries will be bringing their fare to the 21-plus event. The evening runs from 6–10pm and tickets cost $150, with proceeds benefiting Food Lifeline and Ben’s Fund.
