Washington winemakers, live music and cocktails for a cause to continue each Tuesday at the Lobby Bar

SEATTLE—August 19, 2013— Due to popular demand and with anticipation that Seattle’s sunny weather will continue, Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle and Sip Northwest Magazine will extend the Sips of Summer event series through the month of September. This seasonal event features complimentary tastings from select Washington winemakers at the Lobby Bar at Pan Pacific each Tuesday from 6 – 8 p.m., with extended happy hour pricing on drinks from 4 – 8 p.m. and live music throughout. A selection of upcoming winemakers includes:

While enjoying the newly refreshed Lobby Bar patio complete with couches for lounging and resort-style décor, guests are invited to mingle with the winemakers and may purchase their favorite tasting by the glass or bottle.  For the less wine-inclined, Pan Pacific’s Cocktails for a Cause: twelve dollars provides two sangrias (bring a friend!), the Jalapeño-Blood Orange Margarita, or the PanEarth® inspired Eco Mojito. Four dollars from each beverage will be donated to One Day’s Wages to help end extreme global poverty.
