Join Us Mother's Day Weekend

SLK Mother痴 Day Road Trip
Murals, Wine and Hot Air Balloons
Friday-Sunday, May 8-10

Looking for Sun, Great Wine and Good Times? All are guaranteed!

We値l start in Issaquah early Friday morning, caravan over Snoqualmie Pass and hop off just west of Cle Elum where we値l
traverse the back roads into Ellensburg. From there we値l head into Yakima by way of the Canyon Road with its twisty route along the Yakima River with a couple of photo ops.

We値l enjoy lunch downtown Yakima at the Plaza Socievole Winery tasting room and Bistro. From there we値l head out of town to Naches Heights up a winding road to a bluff for sipping at The Tasting Room where they pour three local wineries including Nebbiolo di Klipsun, the only Italian grape grown in Washington.

Next stop will be the Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail where we値l stop at Windy Point Vineyards, Bonair Winery, Two Mountain Winery, the funky, eclectic tasting room of Paradisos del Sol for mid afternoon appetizers paired with their great wines. Next is SilverLake followed by
Horizon痴 Edge Winery with their fun wines:
Foreplay Chardonnay
Money Maker Merlot
On the Fence Cab Sauvignon
Intimate Affair Port
Wishful Thinking Chocolate Port
Naked Raspberry Port.
All are exSLKent!

We値l saunter (not stumble) into Toppenish for the night, have our traditional SLK cocktail hour before a casual Mexican dinner at at El Porton.

Saturday morning we have a surprise in store, remember to bring your straw hat

Back on the road to Walla Walla we will stop for a photo op at the controversial 1922 historical icon TeaPot Dome Gas Station and then into the Tri-Cities for lunch at Tagaris Winery and Taverna.

Next stop, Walla Walla for SLK cocktails before a fabulous dinner at Whitehouse-Crawford Restaurant, in a historic 100 year old building downtown Walla Walla. After dinner we値l head over for fireworks and the famous Saturday Nite Glow Hot Air Balloons

If you're in the area you won't be able to miss us as we caravan SLK Style...!

I plan on meeting up with you in Toppenish for the ride in to Walla Walla. Unfortunatety I will only be able to stay the day and once again Janie will not be able to make it. See has a meeting in Tulsa that she can not get out of.

What time do you plan on heading out from Toppenish? I will give you a call as I get close so I can join up.

Looking forward to it as always

Great!
We're magnets, aren't we...?


We have our special surprise at 9am and again at 10am Saturday morning (2 groups since we're so large). For more details about that send me a PM or an email, Dave.

We'll leave Toppenish at 11.
Come early for breakfast and surprise or show up in the parking lot before 11 to join us for the day...
