Christmas in Seattle

Roger and I at the hotel before leaving to go to a Christmas party. The party would be well attended, mostly people I did not know, but still fun. The event was a party for all the Liquid Concrete people, whom Roger works with, along with a fund raiser for the heartbeat for warriors organization.
The setting for the party was at the 909 Coffee and Wine bar in Burien, Washington. KC aka Liquid Concrete made arrangements for a shuttle to bring us to the party and back to our hotel. The Christmas lights and garland, the music set the mood for this celebration.
The restaurant was closed for this private party. It was billed as a Liquid Concrete Christmas party/ benefit for the heartbeat warriors organization. I had not heard of them before this, it is on our list of providing donations to from now on. Have you heard of them? Check them out.
My choice for dinner was Sambuca prawns, oh my, I had to ask for a spoon to get every morsel of this entree. I paired it with a moscato d'Asti wine from perrone, Italy. Um!
The music was awesome. KC on sax, along with his brother Steve Sullivan on piano, formerly playing with such greats as, Seals and Crofts, Dionne Warwick, Marilyn McCoo and The Pointer Sisters to list just a few. JV Collier on bass, also a long list of great musical artists he has played with. On vocal was Sunny Wilkinson, one incredible voice. Stuart Nyren on drums, whom we have heard at previous parties. I would say KC knows how to bring a great group of musicians together. Smooth Jazz was the music of the evening.
My desert for the night was Affogato, (espresso, gelato and whip cream) a perfect ending for the night.
Roger and Larry Davis, Larry is in charge of the road repair department of Liquid Concrete. That moss looking stuff that you see on some of our major highways and bridges, yep that is Liquid Concrete.
KC, the man in charge of putting on this event. Although this is blurry, I still wanted to post it. KC has a heart of gold and knows how to put on a party, bringing together some wonderful people. Thank you KC was putting on one incredible party.
After the party it was time for "Sweet Dreams." We both slept in until 10:00 am, which is unheard of for us these days.
In order for Sunday morning was this Maple Spiced Coffee. It was smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. Do you have any special holiday getaways? I think I wouldn't mind doing a getaway just before Christmas every year, even just for one night.
