Wine World & Spirits joins U-District Food Bank for Chili Cook-Off

I’m a huge proponent of the University Food Bank (well, any food bank).  And those of you who know we well know that I’m also a proponent of beer and wine. So I’m thrilled to pass along that Wine World and Spirits has teamed up with the U-District Food Bank for the second annual Chili Cook-Off.

The Cook-Off will be held on Sunday, March 3rd from 2pm to 5pm at Wine World and Spirit’s private ballroom, with proceeds benefiting the food bank.  Tickets are $10 and include your chili tastes plus 5 drink tickets to sample local beers and wines that have been selected to pair with the chili.

Men, that’s probably all you need to read – buy your ticket here or at the door.

Ladies, if you still need a little tempting, this is the part where I get to tell you that the chili will be judged by Seattle firefighters.   And yes, I know that’s a totally sexist comment and I don’t really care.  FIREFIGHTERS.

Wine World & Spirits is located at 400 NE 45th.

Beautify for Breast Cancer: Auction and Show from Derby Salon

Friday, October 21st from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. will be Derby Salon’s 5th Annual Beautify for Breast Cancer event, held at Wine World (400 NE  45th #130).  The event is a fundraiser for Peyton Piper’s Benevolent Fund and Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research.

Peyton Piper is the now six-year old daughter of Stacey Piper, who lost her life to breast cancer in her early thirties.  Stacey was a stylist at Derby salon, so its fitting that the salon would devote half the money raised to helping Peyton through college.

The theme for this year’s show is “Locks of Ages…Travel through the Tresses of Time.”  A hair show will begin at 7p.m., and the silent auction will end at 8 p.m.  Auction items include a trip to Silverwood and special services at Derby.  There will also be live music, cake walks, and an eight-year-old magician.

For those planning on attending, you can RSVP on the Facebook event page here.  Derby is located 6315 Roosevelt Way NE.
