The Velvet Underground Dining Experience-

Cormac is listed on Food and Wine as one of 2012's Top Ten New Chefs. Cormac has been cooking for the majority of his life and is presently at Madison Park Conservatory. He has worked at several Tom Douglas restaurants in Seattle including Etta's, Dahlia Bakery, Dahlia Lounge and Sitka & Spruce. http://www.foodandwine.com/best_new_chefs/cormac-mahoney
Hand of God and Avennia-
Both represent the best of place here and there. Boutique. New. These wines are the inspiration and passion of two former Microsoft colleagues; Jon Staenberg and Marty Taucher.
*The Hand of God vineyards are located at the base of the Andes in Mendoza Argentina and this one of the very first release events for the wine. http://www.handofgodwines.com/
*Avennia, located in Woodinville, was co-founded by Marty Taucher and Winemaker Chris Peterson, formerly with DeLille Cellars. Their goal is to make wines that evoke clarity: clarity of place, clarity of type, clarity of purpose: wines are designed to tease rather than flaunt; pique interest, not beg for attention. They stand for elegance, delicacy, purity. http://www.avennia.com/
