This year’s Poker Run boating event begins tomorrow in Lake Chelan and WineGirl Wines is a sponsor of the festivities. It’s 97 degrees here today and it’s forecast to stay that warm through the weekend, so it’ll be a great time to be out on the lake for a cool ride (or in our winery for a cool drink). The theme for this year is ‘Back to the Eighties’ and that means neon colors, t-top cars, wild hair, and boomboxes blasting tunes from the best music decade ever??
Anyway, I’ll be dressed for the occasion since most of my wardrobe is from the 1980s by luck. WineGirl and I’ll be working the tasting bar at The Blending Room serving cool white wines and our big reds for hot spectators. It wasn’t exactly said out loud, but I think that part of the sponsorship deal was that I get to drive a speedboat for the day, so (don’t tell the WineGirl) but I may leave work early to score a seat on a boat. It should be a crazy day in the hot sun. Registration and warm ups are today. The Poker Run starts on Saturday at 11 am. Come on out and let me know if I can drive your jetboat for the day!
