In good hands with Franz

In good hands with Franz

What snow staved us from conducting Tuesday was a raving success on Thursday! Thank you to our media friends who attended and devoured dinner at Il Fornaio, which celebrated Chef-Partner Franz Junga's Fruili menu for Festa Regionale (showcased Jan. 3-16 at all Il Fornaio restaurants!). We dined, we laughed, and shared a little face time instead of the oft spent screen time. It's nice to escape...[read more]

“Industry” quotes we love

"If a young man tells his date how handsome, smart and successful he is — that's advertising. If the young man tells his date she's intelligent, looks lovely, and is a great conversationalist, he's saying the right things to the right person and that's marketing. If someone else tells the young woman how handsome, smart and successful her date is – that's PR." -S....[read more]

A wondrous Waterways holiday party

A wondrous Waterways holiday party

We've done a lot of wacky company parties, being a PR firm and all. Let's see: there was that antique firetruck rental, in which we dressed all in red, "kidnapped" our visiting PR friend Andrew Freeman, swathed him in a red patent firefighter jacket and helmet and howled at passerby from the tops of our lungs in this open seated truck…going point to point to client restaurants....[read more]

Goodbye Andrea, Hello Katie

When Andrea Baseler told us last week that she loved working with us, but decided to change careers; everyone here was devastated.  A few tears, complete shock and of course who would we find to replace a vibrant, bright and talented young woman like Andrea?  Never mind that she was the only WSU graduate and had to take a lot “stuff” from all the HUSKIES in the office, or that she was...[read more]

Dine somewhere you have never been

Dine somewhere you have never been

We are all creatures of habit and over the last couple of years most of us have stayed close to home; it felt safe.  We drive to work the same way, the same streets, shop at the same grocery stores, eat at the same restaurants and order the same item on the menu.  What if, over the next two weeks you decided to take a different path?  With Seattle Restaurant Week already underway it...[read more]

Love letter to Bradley

I met Brad Dickinson, no, make that “Bradley” Dickinson, at Henry’s Off Broadway’s Oyster Bar sometime in the very early 80’s.  He was, and is, tall and handsome, quick with the sauté pan with an even quicker wit.  If the Roanoke was slow, Terry Dudley and I could close down at midnight and head over for a late bite with whatever tip money we had made...[read more]
