NW Maritime Center

For those interested in wooden boats or just spending time outside on our beautiful waterfront, the Classic Mariners’ Regatta is taking place in Port Townsend June 6th-8th. Hosted by the Maritime Center/Wooden Boat Foundation and the Port Townsend Sailing Association. This event is for wooden boats and will be wonderful to watch from a higher vantage point, just ask the innkeepers where to go. Also, be sure to check out the NW Maritime Center and browse through The Chandlery to pick up a nautical souvenir.

Ichikawa Japanese Cuisine

May 28th, 2014 by bluegullinn

When travelling to Port Townsend it is easy to be overwhelmed by restaurant choices. For Japanese food my pick is Ichikawa. My personal favorites are the daily Bento box or Chef’s choice combos (always good and allows me to try something new). There are options for the no-raw-fish eaters as well, their tempura udon is very good. You don’t have to take my word for it, check out the reviews on Yelp or Tripadvisor. They are located downtown, across from the Port Townsend Ferry Dock. This is a smaller establishment and can get very busy on the weekends, I recommend making a reservation. If you are with a group of 8 or more, reserving the Tatami room is fun and a little more private.

We welcome not only anPort Townsend Ferry extended weekend but the unofficial start to summer. The weather has been wonderful lately and will hopefully hold out through Monday. Regardless of what Mother Nature decides to throw our way us Washingtonians won’t let a little rain spoil our good time. There is the Shrimp Fest going on in Brinnon, WA the 24th & 25th. If you are looking for live music stop by the Quimper Grange to hear Portland’s New Iberians play Zydeco, Blues, Soul, & New Orleans Rock’n'Roll; you can even join in a dance lesson. Getting hungry? The 1st Annual Port Townsend Artisan Food Festival sounds delicious and interesting!

Valentine’s Day in Port Townsend

January 24th, 2013 by bluegullinn

Champagne

Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift? Surprise that special someone with a weekend getaway to Port Townsend. Jewelry is nice but why not give them an experience they will remember forever? I would suggest a nice bottle of wine from The Wine Seller, chocolates from Elevated Ice Cream and some beautiful fresh flowers from Petals in Uptown Port Townsend. Treat them to a romantic dinner at one of the delicious local restaurants and there is no going wrong.

The dahlias are blooming and just strolling through the Uptown neighborhood can offer some lovely views of water, gardens and Victorian homes. The weather this time of year is perfect for a weekend getaway… so why not plan one?

Aldrich’s Market

July 31st, 2012 by bluegullinn

Aldrich’s Market first opened in 1895 and after a couple of fires that completely destroyed the store it has gotten its most recent facelift in 2005. The store holds an interesting mix of everyday staples and necessities alongside local cheeses (Mt. Townsend Creamery) and fresh baked goods (Pastry Design by Anca). This is an excellent place to swing by whether you need a loaf of bread or want to pick up lunch from their deli. They stock over 700 wines from around the world and on weekdays will make you the best sushi roll, right in front of you. I always seem to find something unique and yummy when I stop by.
