Had the Canlis brothers not chosen to take over the family restaurant, they might’ve had a pretty good career as event planners, right? You recall their 2010 citywide scavenger hunt (photo), and a recent string of holiday events that featured nacho cheese fountains, Skee-Ball, hot tubs and even real snow.
Seattle needs a party scene, says Mark Canlis. A scene “worthy of our airplane-software-coffee jam.”In that regard, hospitality at Canlis is not unlike a Formula One racing car, where a manufacturer develops new technology on the tack before it turns up in the family sedan. :If we can do this,” he tells Seattle Met, it really gives us a lot of R&D for what happens at the table.”
Well, if you don’t have plans for New Year’s Eve, you should consider the Canlis party. Starts at 9 PM, tickets are $525. Details and reservations here.
