April Meeting- Zig Zag

This month our destination was the Zig Zag Cafe, known by cocktail geeks around the world and one of my favorite places. I'd go as far to say that it was this Seattle bar that put classic cocktails on the local map.

But before heading to Zig Zag Union Restaurant tweeted that they would be offering happy hour specials to LUPEC members so off I went with a few others to have a little pre drinking nosh. Chef and owner Ethan Stowell brought out plates of salami, carpaccio, frisee salads (one with a poached duck egg and one with a poached goose egg!), and house made pastas for us all to share. It was delicious! Thank you!!

Off to Zig Zag where Jakob and Kacy had reserved 5 big booths, Liz made sure everyone got their order in and Ben mixed and mixed and mixed for about 30 of us.
 Ben taking a much needed break & chatting with us.

And if you happened to stop by the bar on your way out you saw Murray Stenson, arguably one of the world's best bartenders.

It was a great time and I can't say thank you enough to all the folks there!

What was your favorite cocktail that you had at Zig Zag? I loved my Champs Elysees

  1. I loved the Berloini I tried. I'd never had it before but it was delicious! Gin, Cynar and I think dry vermouth (with a twist). Great time LUPEC ladies. Thanks for a lovely evening meeting new people, catching up with old friends and some amazing cocktails!
