One Night Only Project Comes To Madrona

Last weekend, you may have heard about all the hype in Woodinville, when Skillet Founder Josh Henderson knocked the socks off of guests attending the first of the ultra private series of One Night Only dinners, created by Julien Perry and Melissa Peterman. They created the series to give diners an insider experience unlike anything they could experience outside of that evening; an experience that cannot, and will not ever be repeated. One Night only will run twice a month, matching a top notch local chef with a wine-maker brewer, or other alcohol extraordinaire, and the tickets certainly run a hefty price for this one of a kind experience, between $150-250 per person.

The next dinner will be held on August 26th at Madrona’s Bottlehouse, where Manu Alfau will host a Dominican Christmas feast, to help raise awareness for his new Caribbean sandwich shop in Pioneer Square, and Rob Roy’s Anu Apte will pair drinks.
