We welcome not only an 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!
Kick back with a cold one at Sirens. Opening at noon everyday, they have a fairly extensive bar and many brews on tap. With the best mixed drinks in town (try a Mai Tai or Mojito) and a deck overlooking the water it can’t be beat. While the décor may not be to everyone’s taste the food is definitely delicious, my favorites are the Texas Jalapeno Poppers and Sicilian Pizza, so good! A couple tips from a local, get there early if you are planning on eating or finding a seat. It can get crowded in the evening as they usually have live music. For faster service, order at the bar!
The Silverwater Café is located in downtown Port Townsend on the corner of newly refurbished Taylor Street. The restaurant has been around for over 20 years and serves everything from Dungeness crab cakes to braised lamb to lentil burgers. Vegetarians and meat-eaters are sure to find something delicious from their unique and eclectic menu. This is a great place to have dinner with that special someone and go catch a movie next door at The Rose Theatre, they even offer a 3 course Pre Theater Meal. The Mezzaluna Lounge is located upstairs and offers a wide variety of wine.
