Great to see that was included in a holiday fashion story on what-to-wear this season.  Yahoo gave nod to this made in the USA accessory in the story written by Tricia Chaves.  The design-your-own tool has been a huge success with women since its launch the other week.  Congrats to Plume and thank you to Tricia.

Seattle Met Magazine Gets Plumed: Plume Feather Hair Extensions Hit the Tresses of Fashion Writer

Seattle Met’s intrepid fashion writer Allie Oosta hits the Bowie Salon in the name of fashion. Her mission? Get “plumed” with Plume’s made in the USA feather hair extensions. Her choice for everyday wear? An array of subtly light colors that highlight the hair without harming it. For fun? Plume’s new clip in/clip out PlumeSnap in shades of purple. Not a fan of purple? You can design your very own PlumeSnap using Plume’s online design tool. (Personally, we’re loving the green grizzlies right now.)

Thanks Allie for the great coverage!

November's Men's Health Magazine Touts Spur in Seattle as One of the Top 20 Best Bars in America

So excited that Chef Dana Tough and Brian McCracken's Spur was given honors in The 20 Best Bars in America.  The magazine wrote:


At this avante-garde gastropub, the chefs use local ingredients only-- and drinks aren't exempt. In summers, Spur serves mixers made from scratch-- come winter, cocktails are dosed with housemade bitters.

We've been honored to work with the Chefs and are so proud of their success.  Now head on down to Spur which has valet parking for $8 on Friday and Saturday nights in front of neighboring property The Coterie Room. (Corner of 2nd and Blanchard in Seattle.)

Set Your Alarm on November 19 if You Want a Bottle (or Two)- writes Allecia Vermillion for Seattle Met Mag. Woodinville Whiskey Co. to Release its First Aged Spirits

Thanks to Allecia for the great Sauced story on Woodinville Whiskey Co.'s, release of "a pair of limited edition whiskeys, one of which they say is the largest bourbon release in the state since Prohibition."

She writes about the upcoming release, "The distillery will open at 7am on release day, and don’t be surprised if you see scores of whiskey aficionados lining up early in the morning. Each person can purchase two bottles, which go for $40 apiece. Right now the operation is in the midst of the bottling process; Sorensen says they will have between 3,000 and 5,000 bottles of each style to sell.

Both whiskeys were aged for up to two years in 5- to 8-gallon barrels. These are significantly smaller than the 53-gallon barrels that larger operations use; exposing the whiskey to more barrel surface area helps accelerate aging and deepen the flavor.
You’ll recall that Sorensen and fellow founder Brett Carlile have benefited from some big-name tutelage from David Pickerell, former master distiller for Maker’s Mark Bourbon. Pickerell will be hanging out in the tasting room on release day. It’s not weird at all to ask him to sign your bottles. In fact, it’s encouraged.

Early next year, the distillery will start releasing its core offerings of aged whiskeys, a Mash Bill No. 9 bourbon and a 100 percent rye whiskey."
