 GREETINGS!!!  We're closing up the books on 2011 and in reflecting on the year in business, I am just so eternally thankful and grateful to you our customers that our business continues to thrive and grow each year.  It's truly an honor to be raising our family in this awesome community!  The picture to the left shows our eldest daughter on the deck here at Prima building a brussel sprout and cork snowman during our snowy week a few weeks back. 

Thank you! 


oysters to get you in the mood on Valentines!

 Valentines Day is right around the corner.  It's a night that always fills up quickly, so make reservations soon.  Duo Nouveau with vocalist Eleanor Fye singing romantic love songs from 6-9.  Seatings until 8:30.  Join us!

Langley becomes the scene of a murder every year during "Mystery Weekend" the last weekend of each February.  This year it appears that gold fever has led to murder... "In Cold Mud."  Thousands of people descend upon our little village to solve this's a total blast...I really recommend getting a group together and coming out for this weekend.  The range of people who attend is amazing...old, young, families, groups of 70 something women or 30 something really ranges the gamete and everyone is having a blast!  It's one of those weekends I wish I was a visitor, not a worker!  Learn more at

Recipe of the month
People always ask for the recipe for the dressing for our house green salad.  It is a very simple red wine vinaigrette:
1/3 cup red wine vinegar to 1 cup olive oil, one shallot, 1 tsp dijon mustard, 1 tsp thyme, salt and pepper to taste
everything but the oil goes into the blender, blend until incorporated and then add oil in a slow stream while continuing to blend.

 This January and February MUSEO will feature works primarily by local artists during its “Steampunk” show. About 40 artists have created both two dimensional and sculptural works reminiscent of the spirit of adventure, invention and craftsmanship of the early 19th century.  The opening was last weekend and from all accounts it was amazing.  My mother in law, Cary Jurriaans has a piece in the show...look for it!  This upcoming Saturday is the Langley artwalk...with an opening at Brackenwood featuring the photography of Earl Olson - artist's reception is from 5:00-7:00.  Here at Prima we've got the art work of Claudia Pettis, Lucy Brennan, David Price, and Dave Gignac!
