Celebrate summer with Washington winemakers, live music and cocktails for a cause each Tuesday at the Lobby Bar

Seattle—May 22, 2013— With temperatures rising, the Lobby Bar patio at Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle is the coolest place to listen to live music and sip on tastes from Washington winemakers this summer. Launching June 4 in the Lobby Bar at Pan Pacific, Sips of Summer will feature Sip Northwest Magazine  and tastings from two local acclaimed winemakers or winery reps each Tuesday from 6 – 8 p.m., with live music and extended happy hour pricing on drinks from 4 – 8 p.m.
Guests are invited to mingle with the winemakers on the patio and may purchase full glasses or bottles of their favorite tasting. For the less wine-inclined, Pan Pacific has put together a menu of Cocktails for a Cause. Twelve dollars gets you two sangrias (bring a friend!), the all-new 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.
