Join us tonight for free wine tasting our Happy Hour between 5pm – 9pm.

We will be joined by Sonie and Doc Hansen pouring their latest wine finds:

Convergence Zone out of Woodinville

· 2010 DEWPOINT Dry Riesling, tropical aromas, touch of sweetness and refreshing.
· 2008 Storm Front 60% Merlot 40% Cab Sauv. YUMMY! This wine received 91 points from Wine Spectator. Now I am not sure what that means but anytime I received a 91 in school that was pretty awesome. So come give this a try. (you know I am kidding)
· Ginkgo Forest Syrah This got best in Show, Best Red and Double Gold. (sounds like a high breed Irish Setter that dives) But I am thinking it will be amazing.

Join us for dinner, some new happy hour items, sips and giggles.

CHICKEN DUMPLINGS.....in a truffle?

Nope! LOL but it caught your attention didn’t it?

However, it’s not too far from what’s new at Sweet Decadence. I felt like the cat in the hat kids just staring out the window at the rain / snow / rain then lots of rain. Then I got a great idea.

Soup! We should do soup! Should we, could we, do a soup? (green eggs and ham reference) So today we have soup and we will have Freshly HOMEMADE soups for lunch and toasted sandwiches! Our new menu will be on our web site shortly! (if not already) Lunch will be served Mon – Sat 11 -3pm. If will still have soup after 3 we still will be happy to feed ya! J Today our soup is … yup you guessed it! Chicken and Dumpling soup and I am telling ya its wonderful! So we will also be serving that for dinner tonight and tomorrow J Remember we are open Thursday and Friday evenings until 9pm. Soooo com’on down!

So tonight we have dinner and wine.

Tomorrow night we have Free Wine tasting… Cheryl has picked out some greats wines to taste and if you love them you can take them home! So we would love to see you this weekend for wine and dinner or coffee and quiche and MORE!

We also have PRESALE tickets to the Wine and Chocolate festival coming up the first weekend in Feb so feel free to pop in and purchase yours soon! http://www.enumclawchocolatefestival.com/home.html  This year is a 21 and over venue and we will be right next to your favorite wineries!

HOW FUN WILL THURSDAY BE!?!

This week at Sweet D!
-This Thursday, back by popular demand, is Grant Stott . He’s toured with The Beach Boys, Three Dog Night, Peter Noon, Thelma Houston and has made his way back to Newcastle for our entertainment. Come see him live starting at 7pm! If he gets enough fans this week, he will be coming back every Thursday til the end of the year :) Then we can dance through to the end of the year… Heck I may even do the jig for ya… (um… what exactly is the jig?)

-Accompanying Grant Thursday night is Mike Sharadin, Winemaker and Owner of Northwest Totem Cellars, providing a free wine tasting! Their Late Harvest Viognier is amazing! But come try their Cabernet Franc, The Potlatch and Syrah. Even if you have a previous engagement stop by early and try the complimentary chocolate and wine pairing with Mikes amazing Late Harvest Viognier! Its INCREDIBLE!

-And the thirst quenching continues onto Friday night with yet another free wine tasting! This time, it’s from our cellars. Cheryl, one of our own wine tasting experts will be pouring an amazing Lemberger and a gewürztraminer and two other wines!

-If you’re at the shop either of those evenings, take a second look at our appetizer and light meal menu. We made a couple new delish additions, one of them being toasted ravioli, that we are sure you'll love almost as much as all of the free wine tasting.

-Just a reminder, if you’re looking for that perfect something and you want to avoid the mall, come pick out a bottle of wine and we can pair it with some chocolate to make a great gift! And we can fit your budget! These make a bottle of wine into an experience!

-On December 25th, start your day off the Sweet D way! We'll be carrying on our crepes and mimosas’ breakfast tradition from 9am til 2pm. The whole gang will be there, and we would love to see you :) Hope to see you Thursday!!

Sweetly! Sandra

Happy Friday!!!! We have SO much going on down here! I know, I know, I kinda fell off the earth… Good thing it’s not flat! I mean really what would have happened? Not that I would have been able to walk all the way to the edge, like really who would want to walk to the edge of the earth… then you have all that water to negotiate.. .then decide… do I take a Canoe? Or a Jet Ski… cuz after all who would walk with me, I would probably be alone…… Although… Forest Gump had a following….

Speaking of Forest GUESS WHAT? LIFE is LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATE!

So tonight we have our free Wine tasting, remember this is EVERY Friday! So come on down try some new wines. Tonight we are featuring two white wines and two reds. Starts at 5pm! We have the amazing Firehouse Red and a Sangiovese from Whidbey Island!
