Last evening my friends Ed, Kathy and I (hubby out of town on fishing trip) were going to the Red House (located at 410 Burnett Ave. So. - directly across from the old Spirit of Washington Dinner Train Depot) for their weekly Wednesday night wine tasting. This week's guest winery was Kestrel's out of Prosser. From prior visits to the greater Yakima Valley wineries, this happens to be one of my favorites. While we all arrived promptly at 6:00pm we soon found that alot of other folks had the same idea! The place was packed! We decided to head downstairs to the deck and have dinner off their amazing menu. I can honestly say I have never eaten anything at the Red House that wasn't up to par. They truly have one of the best menu offerings in town.
We were seated at one of the tables that still offered peaks of sunshine, but once the sun went down, we were reminded that summer in Seattle isn't quite here yet! I was hoping to get some pictures of the wine tasting but instead snapped a couple from my seat. This shot on the left is looking to the east and up onto Renton Hill. If you haven't attended a wine tasting at the Red House.....you most certainly should. For $20 (plus tax) you get several tastes of wine and a full buffet dinner. It has to be one the best values in town! Check out their website at http://www.redhousebeerandwine.com/
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!
