Christmas Cruise 2014

The Pacific NW membership was invited for dinner at the Imanema Grill in Belltown and/or to go on the Argosy Christmas Ship for hot toddys, sight seeing, and a Christmas Carolling. First we started with a wonderful dinner at the Grill From Ipanema Brazillian Steakhouse. There was all you can eat salads, breads, and veggies and then fresh rotisseired meats carved right off the skewer onto your plate at the table by waiters dressed as Brazillian Gouchos. After dinner we all met at the ship. It was a beautiful cruise around Elliot Bay where you could have a warm drink and see the vibrant city lights. The waterfront Ferris Wheel light show was awe inspiring and there were many other decorated boats out for a cruise in the bay as well. Santa Claus was on-board for the kids (young and old) and a quartet of Carolers put on a fantastic performance. If you weren't in the Christmas spirit before the cruise, with the festive lights, Santa, hot drinks, and singing, you cetrtainly were afterwards.

The Parlor Comedy Club 2014

Our 2014 Member's (dates optional) Night Out was held at the Parlor Comedy Club located in downtown Bellevue at Lincoln Square. That night the Parlor was hosting a "Valentine’s Weekend" event with headliners comedian Jamie Lee (a cast member of the MTV show Girl Code) and comedian Joe Derosa. We enjoyed an array of appetizers (more than we could eat) and the comedy had us rolling in the isles (but not lieterally). Afterwards, we hung out in the Parlor Billiards Bar for some pool, some laughs, and then the dancing broke out, (and no there was no video posted on YouTube), thank god. But a great time was had by all.

Teatro Zinzani 2012

The Pacific NW Section let go of their inhibitions for an over-the-top fun night of dressup and interactive entertainment at Seattle’s Teatro ZinZanni. Teatro ZinZanni combines improv comedy, vaudeville revue, music, circus, dance and sensuality, into an entertainment experience like no other. Included was an wonderful 4 course dinner of Spanish/Mexican cuisine offering unique delights not typically found at a regular resturant serving Mexican style dishes. The theme of the event was iCaliente (very hot). The show was super high energy and amazing, it was funny, exotic and very exciting (if you know what I mean). The show was very interactive, and the audinece was definitely encouraged to participate. In fact, our Tim Burkholder (Mistras QA Manager) was picked to be a salsa dancer in front of the whole crowd. Of course, Tim was embarrassed at first but then, like the trooper he is, he got into it and everybody enjoyed a good laugh (not at you Tim, with you, really). It was a night of unexpected experiences and everyone had a blast of a good time.
