Well my husband Mike and I did the last (at least for awhile) Roving Renton last night. I heard that it was another great success and had quite a few rovers. We started at Armondo's and were treated to non-pasta gnocchi's which were great accompanied by a glass of red wine. We then headed to Melrose but were roving behind a rather large group so we decided to head to Blossom's. There we had a chicken egg roll and pork skewer with a glass of their house white wine. Very good! Then we wandered back to The Melrose and waited for a few minutes for the bar to clear out because that's my favorite place to sit and be entertained by Leroy the bartender. He's worth the trip believe me! We enjoyed the most delicious scallops and rice and a great glass of viognier. To end the night we walked to the Red House where we enjoyed a glass of white wine and the best rice pudding. In talking with the restaurant owner's they said they were taking a few weeks off but hope to bring the Roving Renton back soon. I know I can't wait!
We are Sue and Melanie and the owners of Feathered Nest (914 S. 3rd Street) in Renton, Washington. Feathered Nest is an eclectic mix of vintage and new items. We became friends several years ago when Melanie was partners with another person at another shop here in town. I was working part time in yet another shop and Melanie and her partner asked if I would be willing to work for them while they were on vacation. I agreed and started working in their shop more regularly. As time went on I was asked to become a partner in their shop. We all worked for over 5 years and finally Melanie and I decided we would like to branch off and open our own business. With alot of planning and sleepness nights we finally opened in November of 2006. If you are in town, stop by and say hello or visit our website at http://www.featherednestinteriors.com We look forward to hearing from you!
