IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT NORTH BEND LOCATION
Big News About Food & Beverage Operations
This is the announcement you’ve been waiting for.
On behalf of our board of directors, I’m thrilled to announce that we have a concrete plan for re-introducing full-service restaurant operations to the JazzClubsNW experience in North Bend. Wildflower Wine Shop will move from its current location to our facility in the old fire station, partnering with JazzClubsNW to create a complete experience of outstanding food, wines, and music.
In addition to being a local favorite for great food and wines, Wildflower is also a passionate supporter of our musical program, and of the local community in general. “This is a natural extension of our founding vision to be a part of a growing lifestyle and culture in the Snoqualmie Valley,” says Kimberlea Miller, one of the owners of Wildflower. “We firmly believe in contributing to the art and culture of the valley. Wildflower regularly features musical artists recommended by JazzClubsNW, and we have become a regular venue for both the Blues Walk and the Jazz Walk.”
The food menu will stay rooted in small plates such as organic salads, charcuteries, wraps, soups and traditional Greek food. Wildflower is committed to serving fresh, organic, local produce and grass-fed meats. As the business grows, Wildflower will expand the menu to include larger plates and more options. “We remain committed to supporting local farmers and providing the refreshing, clean and healthy food that has made us unique in this valley,” says Kimberlea.
Great food, a permanent selection of wines with local ties to the Snoqualmie Valley and a rotating selection highlighting the various wine-production regions of our state, and a proven commitment to supporting local culture make Wildflower a dream partner for us. They have already begun the permitting process, which we expect to take about 90 days.
Piccola Cellars will cease operations on Sunday, July 30. Live jazz — the heart of our mission — won’t miss a beat in the interim. JazzClubsNW will continue to host music performances every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday in the old fire station, just as we have for the past 15 months.
We are so grateful to the wonderful team at Piccola for their friendship over the past year. Their support — and the support of our members — has made it possible for us to keep our mission alive.
I will continue to send weekly updates, keeping you informed about the great jazz on our schedule and developing news about the exciting future of our member-driven community. In the meantime, I encourage you to visit Wildflower Wine Shop and check out their food and wines. If this letter doesn’t excite you, that should certainly do the trick.
