Excited to announce our 2014 Sourdough Speaker Series spring lineup! Join us in the North Cascades in May for a special meal and presentation with The Galloping Gourmet, or for a “Microbrews and Mountain Photography” with Icicle Brewing Company and Garrett Grove. Details at www.ncascades.org/speakerseries.
Each Sourdough event begins with wine and hors d’œuvres on the deck of our lakeside dining hall before moving inside for an informal gourmet dinner of primarily local and organic foods prepared by our renowned kitchen staff. A presentation by our guest speaker will follow, with ample time for questions and discussion. Following Sunday morning’s continental breakfast, we’ll offer a naturalist-led activity to get you outdoors exploring our wild and scenic neighborhood.
The cost for each event is $150 per person based on double-occupancy. All proceeds from these engagements benefit summer youth activities in the North Cascades, so eat, drink and be merry for a good cause!
Register at www.ncascades.org/speakerseries or by calling (360) 854-2599.
