Our trip to the Willows Restaurant

My wife and our departing cook Arlen Coiley whom is stepping down to finish off his last year of school went to the Willow's to enjoy the afternoon lunch in the quite atmosphere. One because it fits our schedule of parents and business owners and two because I wanted a slow quite experience to walk aroundand get to know the cooks and people who operate it. It is very casual yet fancy... just what I like. Blaine the Chef we bumped into as we were just arriving was personable very pleasant to get to know. Arlen happens to know Spencer our bar tender and server and cared for our every need. Spencer we invited to join us at Rifugio's and we were delighted he came. Thanks Spencer!! Sitting at the bar was a good choice. Our favorite spot for our favorite people. 

Yelp Bellingham's Supper Club: an adventure of gastronomical proportions.

Attention all foodies! On June 23rd we hosted the premiere event of Yelp Bellingham's Supper Club: an adventure of gastronomical proportions.  We treated them to an enchanting evening highlighting the bountiful goodness of our brand new summer menu.  Each Yelp reviewer and their guest's received a complimentary four-course Sicilian-inspired meal al fresco on their beautiful patio, and a complimentary glass of beer or house wine courtesy of Yelp Bellingham.  

What's an Official Yelp Event? OYE's are a fun way for our online community to get together offline, and a chance for businesses to show off what makes them special to a fast-growing group of influential local diners.

Stay tuned for even more great Rifugio events coming up soon.  Be sure to follow "Rifugio" and Yelp Bellingham on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to keep up on all the latest and greatest around town!
