There are few events that will get me out of bed earlier than my regular routine requires. Toast of Seattle is one of those special events! This Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce networking event returns January 25 (this time at Residence Inn Seattle Downtown). Read on for your chance to get a FREE ticket to join me for this wonderfully formatted networking event.
Why is Toast of Seattle so special? It’s format. You start by finding a table to sit at while you enjoy breakfast. Then, after some opening remarks, you network in a “speed-dating” inspired way: each person has 2 minutes to talk about their business. At the end of the round, everyone changes tables (you open up an envelope that shows you what table to go to next, no decision making required) and starts again. They guarantee you meet over 20 people in 2 hours. The structure makes networking efficient, productive, fun, and easy.
I’ve made some wonderful connections at past Toast of Seattle events. The style of the networking event takes a lot of the pressure off that can come with more open-format mixing and mingling. It’s a really delightful way to start your day!
Are you looking to network more in 2019? Enter to win a ticket to January 25th’s Toast of Seattle!

About the show:
Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland
Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann have both gone mad… mad as March Hares, that is! In their 10th annual re-imagination of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale of nonsense and fantasy, follow Alice as she discovers what wonders lie beyond the velvet rope at Wonderland’s most exclusive nightclub, The Looking Glass and attempts to best the evil Queen of Hearts to become the next ruler of Wonderland. New this year, Through The Looking Glass features the debut of Jasper McCann’s original musical score performed live by a jazz/rock ensemble. Inspired by hard-bop, psychedelia, go-go, and Indian Raga-pop recordings of the mid-60’s, McCann’s new arrangements set the mood for dance performances that combine classical ballet and jazz with bawdy burlesque beauty.
Want to network? There’s a big, fancy, fun party happening Saturday, March 10 at the W Hotel in downtown Seattle! The Young Professionals of Seattle group is celebrating their 7th anniversary with a swanky networking event. Open to people ages 21-40+ (includes those “young at heart”). This event tends to sell out so get your tickets now.
I am bummed that I can’t attend this year due to a prior commitment, but wanted to make sure you all heard about it so you wouldn’t miss out. Be sure to come back to my blog or Facebook page to let me know how your night was partying at the W Hotel in downtown Seattle!
About the event (in their own words):
7 years. 1 night. Party In Style. That’s how we roll. Can you believe it’s been seven years? We’ve tasted the finest whiskeys, worked out, volunteered and almost shut down several bars just by networking in masses. For our “regulars” and newbies alike, your dedication to YPOS is EVERYTHING! Whether you know it or not, you’ve helped us grow and become a thriving organization, one event at a time, seven years in a row. So let’s celebrate, by getting fancy and dancing like maniacs, for a night you’ll never forget.
Our promise for the night is a perfect mixture of 500(ish) Young Professionals and ambiance, sprinkled with a few special YPOS-esque surprises, that’ll create a fun (and sparkly) party to celebrate our favorite people . . . YOU!
If you go, be sure to check out the offers in the digital swag bag! Yup, DIGITAL swag bag with great offers from local businesses. Such a great idea!
One of the most delicious and delightful weekends of the year returns February 22 – 24! The Seattle Wine & Food Experience will have you enjoying delicious bites and sips from incredible wineries, restaurants, food purveyors, and more. This tasty weekend offers three events: Comfort, Pop! Bubbles & Seafood, and The Grand Tasting! Here’s what The Stranger’s Julianne Bell had to say: “This annual extravaganza of all things edible and drinkable is an ode to gluttony in three parts. First up is Comfort, a festival of “feel-good foods and crafty brews,” complete with bars for French fries, Bloody Marys, hot toddies, and milk and cookies. Next, POP! Bubbles and Seafoodcapitalizes on the felicitous pairing of bubbles and bivalves with a celebrity shucking contest and over 30 sparkling wines from around the world. Finally, the Grand Tasting will showcase local and regional wines, beer, cider, spirits, and tastes from big-name Seattle chefs, with plenty of opportunities to watch demonstrations and meet artisan food producers.”
Want to enter to win 2 General Admission tickets to The Grand Tasting? OF COURSE YOU DO!

Unleash your inner “Dancing Queen” with The 5th Avenue Theatre’s production of “Mamma Mia!” This Seattle production features a jaw-dropping talented cast, including the incredible Sarah Rudinoff and Lisa Estridge. I can already sense the feel-good shivers and pure joy we’ll experience during the show as we hear these two alongside the fabulous Kendra Kassebaum, who plays the lead. Yes, Seattle has seen this show before but it’s NEVER seen it like this. The direction is bound to be amazing and the sneak peeks of the production are so much fun. (Check out this video of one of their very early rehearsals together.) If you like the musical (or even just the songs of ABBA), GO.
Want to enter to win two tickets?
To enter, simply:
RSVP “Interested” or “Going” on the Facebook Event Page
Tag a friend and write a comment on my Facebook Giveaway Post (be sure we’re Facebook friends or you’re “following” me on Facebook at fb.com/keridwyn).
That’s it! Buy tickets here.
PS You love the songs of ABBA! That’s fantastic! Please stick to mouthing along silently to the songs instead of singing along (unless the cast directs you to do differently, as they likely will during the curtain call or encore). Your fellow audience members paid to hear the actors on stage and they can’t do that if you’re singing from your seat. Yes, you’re adorable! Yes, the songs are fabulous. So THANKS in advance for being respectful by waiting until after the show to belt the songs at karaoke!
Giveaway ends 11:59pm Pacific Time 2/3/18. Prize is two tickets to see Mamma Mia on February 6, 7, or 8, 2018.
Psst! In case you missed it, The Atomic Bombshells are hosting a giveaway for tickets to see J’ADORE! A Burlesque Valentine at The Triple Door (this February)!
