Taste of Tulalip 2010

The second annual Taste of Tulalip (Grand Taste, Saturday, November 14th) was again a success. 

Taste of Tulalip is the Washington Wine Restaurant Awards 2010 winner for “Best event featuring Washington Wine” 


The Rock ‘n Roll Challenge, mc’d by Q13 Fox’s Lily Jang, was fun to watch as there was healthy competition while viewing the big screens with some of history’s favorite Rock…I happened upon Guns n’ Roses and Free.  Wine Tasting was plenty.  I can give a shout out to   1. Lachini Vineyards (Oregon) 2007 Pinot Noir  2.  Isenhower Cellars (Walla Walla and Woodinville) El Conquistador 3.  Five Star Cellars…Everything! 4.  Walla Walla Vintners Sangiovese 5.  Flying Trout Malbec blend  6.  2008 Turnbull Red (Napa Valley) 7.  and my favorite new find..Lantz Cellars (Lake Stevens)…especially the Syrah and the now released cabernet sav.  And if you like to Tweet, watch the posts in the Twitter Lounge.

Missed the Grand Taste Pass at TOT this year? Mark your calendar for 2011 – Saturday, November 12th! 

The food served at this event is varied, modern, and tasty.  A variety included Crab Cobb Salad (my favorite..absolutely wonderful), Scallop sautéed in butter (so good…) and lamb, among others.

The Resort showcases top of the line guest suites.  The rooms are all suites and offer many comforts of a road trip worthy getaway.  The staff was fabulous…from housekeeping to the service by William in the Shehal Room while we enjoyed the Seattle Seahawks game the following morning. 

Tulalip hosts a great array of restaurants.  As this was a Saturday evening and the Resort and Casino were packed, we picked up some snacks to go and brought them in to the Canoes Cabaret  for consumption while we danced in our seats to The Spazmatics..and then cut a rug at mpulse Lounge.  On Sunday, while watching the Seahawks game, we enjoyed Prime Rib, Club Sandwich, and Burgers in the Shelal Room.

Spend the weekend, stay the night, enjoy the experience of pure delight!
