Can you believe that a week from today is Christmas Eve? I surely don’t know where the month of December went, much less 2010! In this hectic time of year our days are filled with; running around, decorating, cooking, baking, shopping for the perfect gift for your loved one, gathering with friends and family, and travelling to and fro. Hopefully, there is some time in the holiday chaos where you are able to stop and think about the year that is soon to end and the one soon to begin.
SeaVenture employees and managers kicked off the season spreading joy and goodwill with a wonderful holiday party. This year we mixed things up a little bit and did a baking contest. Boy, do we have some talented employees! We had so many wonderful sweet treats. Giuseppe’s fine Italian food provided the catering and we had enough delicious Italian food to last us atleast a week! It was a joyous and festive occasion, and so special to all be able to gather together like this.
Every day each and every one of us at the SeaVenture enter our prime Pismo Beach beachfront location to put in a days work of making sure each and every guest has the most perfect experience while staying with us. When we stop for a moment and take a minute from our very important jobs of making beds, doing laundry, checking in guests, preparing a wedding reception meal, booking groups of travellers and ultimately making a guests experience the best ever, there is so much to see. It is no wonder that so many of our guests find this to be such a treasured and true destination for them. One fall evening a few weeks ago, I walked down from my office to the most stunning of fall sunsets I think I have seen in all my years here. What a most remarkable place to work, to have guests stay and experience, to create special memories that last a lifetime, stories to pass down to generations, and to have the ability invite others to place their toes in our lovely stretch of Pismo Beach and feel the good life.
To you and yours… From SeaVenture Staff and Management, we wish you the happiest of holidays and look forward to welcoming you back time and time again in 2011. From the beach, Cheers!
Two fabulous individuals collide into one tonight at the SeaVenture Restaurant. Toty Viola acclaimed jazz guitarist and vocalist, known for his authentic international flavor, originally from Italy, landing in Florida and now settling down on the Central Coast makes his premiere performance tonight in our ocean view restaurant. You can find out more about Toty at www.totyviola.com
And Chronic Cellars, featuring winemaker, Josh Beckett originating from Peachy Canyon Winery will be out pouring his most delightfully tasty blends. I have had the opportunity to personally sample some of his wines and they are original and complex and very good drinking, and besides that, his wine labels are fun and fascinating. If you aren’t able to make it out to the SeaVenture Restaurant tonight, make sure to stop by his tasting room off Nacimiento Lake Drive in Paso Robles and try a few of his wines out. Definately worth your while. Take a look at his website www.chroniccellars.com for upcoming fun events.
All this is happening tonight from 5 – 8 pm, in the oceanview SeaVenture Restaurant. Complimentary wine tasting and music. Stay for dinner, enjoy the sunset and start your weekend off right.
On August 12th SeaVenture Restaurant hosted their first Central Coast Wedding Professionals Mixer and what a spectacular night it was! Chef Treaver Lynch provided a spread of food that became the happiest subject of the evening. Everything from the amazing cheese board to include our house roasted almonds and marinated olives, shrimp cocktail, the amazing duck confit tacos, scallops on phyllo pastry, mushroom tarts….. and then to top it off with shot glasses filled with chocolate mousse and chocolate covered strawberries. The bar whipped up a tasty concoction known as the Blushing Bride which was sure to look so fancy in a martini glass. Two mock wedding ceremonies were set up out on the beach with the help of amazing floral designer Jenny McNiece www.jennymcnieceflowers.com to showcase our two newly handbuilt wood arches, one in a natural tone and the other all white. Two of the areas most wonderful photographers Johnathon of BluePhoto, www.bluephoto.biz and Melissa Fitzpatrick of Fitzpatrick Studios www.fitzpatrickstudios.com took some unbelievable shots. Being that the evening was so foggy, I didn’t know what to expect, but both came through with more than I could have ever asked for. Our own General Manager, Chet Hogoboom played out on the Terrace with his band CT and Tommy Lee www.ctandtommylee.com as vendors grooved away the evening with his tunes. The mixer seemed like a hit, vendors were able to check out our venue, try our food, enjoy our view and just spend an enjoyable August evening beachfront here at the SeaVenture. Thank you all our vendors for attending, hope to see you back working your magic at the next SeaVenture wedding!
Just two more days till the famous Pismo Beach festivities take place again. People come from far and near to crowd the beach in front of the SeaVenture Resort on 4th of July. There is something about planting yourself in the sand for the whole day and as night falls upon the beach being able to relax and look up at the fireworks shooting up over your head from off the pier. What could be more American?
The restaurant is pretty well booked with about 120 covers for the evening, probably the best place on the Central Coast to watch the fireworks show, with our full ocean view glass windows that look out to it all and the two terraces to enjoy a drink and take it all in.
We are now officially in the 7th month of the year, 2009 is officially half way over, and even though it may seem like a rough year for some, I think we are all proud to call ourselves Americans and have the luxury to lay in the sand, enjoy our day with friends and family and look back at all the wonderful things that we do have in our lives.
Happy 4th of July!
