Halloween at Prima by Nick Horton

It's the last day of October. Which means three things: wind, rain, and hilarious costumes. Prima's staff always makes the most of Halloween. Pictured in the photo above are an '80s rocker (a.k.a. Max the busser), a dignified pirate (Terry Jackson, server/manager extraordinaire), and Magnum P.I. (Christian, our wonderfully-mustachioed server/bartender).

Way to go, boys. You look fabulous!

FIRST OFF...thanks so much to all of you who voted in the King 5 Best of Western Washington Contest...we won 1st place in the French cool is that!  We really, really appreciate the love!  Really.

HALLOWEEN:  Come in costume on Halloween night for a free dessert!  Or at the very least come just because Christian will be wearing his short shorts a la Magnum P.I. - you do not want to miss that.  Or Devin dressed as Sieb for the night...replete with authentic mustard cords, burgundy old navy shirt, chain wallet and birkenstocks. 

ADDITION TO OUR MUSICAL LINE UP...every 1st Sunday (think this Sunday...November 1st), we'll be featuring the musical duo, Rendezvous  from 4:00-6:00...
We continue with our regular Thursday night music as well...Danny Ward 1st and 3rd Thursdays, Yours Truly 2nd Thursdays, and James & Levi, 4th (and if there is a 5th) Thursdays.

NOVEMBER LANGLEY GETS LIVELY AND FRIDAY NIGHT FLIGHTS...we will be featuring Italian wines this go around...November 6th...4:00-6:30.  Venues include Prima, The Edgecliff, and the Chef's Pantry, ticket cost is $20 and includes a small bite and taste of wine at each spot.  Then on Saturday be sure to swing by Chef's Pantry between 1-3 pm where Donna will help you get a head start with Simple Ideas for Holiday Entertaining – they'll be sampling lots of the new products. 

NOVEMBER 8th, Pinot wine dinner (sold out)...we will be closed for dinner next Sunday, November 8th for our sold out pinot wine dinner.  You can still call and get on the never know who might call in sick, especially this year!

LANGLEY CHEF'S for the 3rd of our seasonal collaborative chef dinners will be sold beginning at 10:00 a.m. on November 16th at Prima (come up the back stairs...front door will be locked since we don't open until 11:30).  Sieb has partnered up with Matt Costello of the Inn at Langley, Jess Dowdell of Mukilteo Coffee Roasters, Donna Leahy of the Chef's Pantry, and Des Rock of Useless Bay Coffee Company in creating these quarterly charity dinners...this one will benefit WAIF.  We are also VERY pleased to announce that Dave and Dawn Noble of Fireseed Catering will be joining the fun so this time around will be a 6 course wine paired dinner...ticket cost remains $75/person.  The dinner itself will be MONDAY, DECEMBER 14th at Prima. 

NEW AND IMPROVED HAPPY HOUR!!!  Starting Wednesday, November 4th, from 3:00-600 we will be offering some expanded happy hour deals as we've decided to stay open all day every day (except for the 1st Tuesday of every month when we have our staff meeting).  We really see this as an opportunity to thank our awesome local, regular customers.  Along with our regular drink specials of 1/2 off well drinks, $1 off draft beer and glass pour wine, and a $4 glass pour red & white, we will be offering $5 food items from our appetizer and small plate menu.  The jury is still out on which items we will be offering at $5...but we know they will include a half portion of our burrata, the calamari, the chicken liver mousse, the pork belly, the escargot and a few more.  Come up and keep us company during those in-between hours through the winter...we want to keep that open sign on all day, every day!

NEW YEAR'S's crazy but the holidays really are just right around the we want to make sure you start planning on spending New Year's with us...James and Levi will be playing this year and I just put in an order for the Tuzzie Muzzie hats again...this year the proceeds of the sales of the hats will be going to the South Whidbey Children's Center.

As always, thank you everyone for you continued patronage and support.  We hope to see you very soon!

Jenn and Sieb
