Spring Newsletter

Hello!  We've been so amazed by this beautiful, mild winter we're having.  We are getting a jump on the projects to get our deck ready to open...maybe it will be earlier this year than in the past!
As always, tons to tell you about.

Wines of Oregon wine dinner, May 3rd.  Here's what Sieb has to say about these wines: "I love Oregon wines because much like the wines of France they are food wines, delicious on their own but transformed with a good meal. In Oregon you will not find the over extracted fruit bombs that have dominated the American wine scene for too long. Oregon wines are subtle and nuanced from the nose to the palate, provoking thought and inspiring cuisine."
6 wine paired courses for $95/person.  Seatings will be between 6:00 and 8:00.  Email for reservations

The Gray Whales have returned to Langley.  Each year, approximately 20,000 Gray Whales migrate between feeding and breeding grounds in Baja and Alaska.  Some come in from the Pacific Ocean into the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Saratoga Passage and actually stay for a few months before heading North.  We are extraordinarily lucky in Langley...these amazing creatures feed on the ghost shrimp right at our sea wall.  They come up so close that at Prima we are unable to see them as the buildings across block our view!  So when we hear the whale bell ringing we know it's time to run across the street for a look.  Welcome the Whales day is April 18 - replete with a parade and seaside celebration in honor of this annual migration.  Whale watching tours aboard the Mystic Sea run from the Langley marina now through the beginning of May.  You are guaranteed (literally) to see a whale.  The trips almost always sell out, so book now!

We are excited to have been asked to participate again in Seattle Weekly's Voracious Tasting and Food Awards at the Paramount Theater on April 23rd.  Over 60 food and drink vendors will be offering nibbles and's a crazy madhouse of indulgence!  Get your tickets here:
