Celebrates Washington Wine Month with Ivar’s

Last year, right before we started this blog we attended Ivar’s Washington Wine Celebration. We were so impressed with the food and the diversity of Washington wines poured at the event. We are huge seafood lovers and the food was superb. Ed loved the desserts almost as much as the seafood! The best part was the scale of the event. There were no long lines, we could easily navigate the rooms, even with a walker and Ebony in tow! We could meet and greet fellow wine lovers while looking out the windows to the lake outside.

This year,  Ivar’s is billing their Washington Wine Month Celebration as a mini-Taste Washington. Taste Washington’s Grand Tasting is on a grand scale, held in an exhibition center with over 200 wineries and 75 restaurants.
