Scottish Highlands Experience and Dinner

Hi Everyone!

We're traveling again... this month, we're going to the UK, to visit the Scottish Highlands!!!  Oh, I wish I could fly you all there, to experience the true, Scottish Highlands... but, I promise you, this is the next best thing.

We will start our evening, at the Calcutta Grill Pub, for Happy Hour, and start off with your favorite beer, cocktail, or, have a try of their signature cocktail, the 'Queen Mary'...  with their secret Bloody Mary mix, with a pickle, asparagus, blue cheese stuffed olive, cocktail onion, and crowned with a blackened prawn... served with a 4oz. beer chaser of your choice.  Sounds pretty good, doesn't it...

Next... Normally, with this meetup, we all have a full on dinner, and I personally like the dinner menu better... but, I want to be conscientious of everyone' budget... so, we may all opt for the menu, at the pub, instead.

I don't want anyone to forego this meetup because of budget, and miss the spectacular view and experience... voted one of the Top 100 Scenic View Restaurants in America...  Also, a great place, to take 'someone special', or, 'want to be special', anniversary, birthday, etc...

Moreover, while we are enjoying the breathtaking, panoramic view of Seattle, the Puget Sound, and a gorgeous sunset, we will also be listening to the golf course's resident bag-piper, playing Scottish melodies.

And yes, there's more... we'll top of the evening, at the Wooly Toad, to hang out and play billiards.  If this sounds like a fun evening for you... come join us!!!

Here's the restaurant's website, to check out their menu.  I listed a few items on the menu, below.

https://www.newcastlegolf.com


This meetup was inspired by, the successful Cinco de Mayo meetup, Eastside Social Club had at Azteca.  We had a good mix of regulars and newly met members.  For the regulars, it was catch up time with friends, met from previous meetups. For the new, it was get acquainted time with regulars.

Everyone was comfortable, had good rapport, conversations, and wanted to do this again... We followed up that dinner, and visited INDIA, via Indian Palace Restaurant, in Woodinville, last May 14. What an exceptional group of folks, who attended and made that meetup a complete success!!!

After that, we visited JAPAN, via Ginza Yakiniku Restaurant, in Bellevue, last June 18. Here again, we had an outstanding meetup... a great turnout!!!

Our last country visited, was the USA, honoring the country we live in, on the month, of our Independence Day... dining at Tap House Bar and Grill, in Bellevue, last July 29.  Yet again, another successful meetup... made some great new friends, at this meetup!

In the weeks to come, we'll travel to a different country and experience their cuisine, together... for this meetup, we're going to the UK, to have a Scottish Highlands experience with dinner!!! 

Ok, I look forward to seeing, meeting and dining with all of you, soon!!!

Cheers!!!

    Hi Everyone:

    Thank you for coming out, to our Scottish Highlands Experience and Dinner meetup... it was one of those perfect leisure evenings.

    When we were at the Wooly Toad terrace, as th sun was setting... it was perfection... like we were at a party, with the awesome view of rolling green hills, Seattle, the Puget Sound... aaahhh, I want to go back again, tonight!!!

    Anyway, last night's meetup was a success, so I will definitely post this event again. Some folks expressed interest in golfing and mini-golfing, so the next one will be themed around that.

    Ok... thanks again for coming out, because of you, we had a successful meetup!!! See you all, at our next mutual meetup...

    Hugs,
    Rosemarie

    Hi Everyone:

    Quick update, for later...

    * As planned, we will meet at, Calcutta Grill Pub, at 4p and on... if we're all comfortable there, note that we can order from the dinner menu, so we can stay put...

    * The bag-piper will go on, at 730p, instead of 8p... so, we'll head out, about 715p

    * For those interested in golfing, mini-golfing, or going to the range, feel free to bring your clubs, or rent them there... no reservations needed. The reason our meetup time is longer than usual, was to allow a little golf time, for those interested.

    *When we go to the Wooly Toad, later, there will be a poker club, reserving part of the space there, but we have access to everywhere else, and the billiard area. Note, if you missed ordering dinner at Calcutta Grill Pub, you can order dinner, appetizers, etc... at Wooly Toad

    Ok folks... that should cover, the final details... I will see you all, shortly!!!

    Cheers!!!

    Hi Everyone:

    It's our Scottish Highlands Experience meetup day, yayyy!!! I've been looking forward to it, and sharing this experience with all of you!!!

    Ok, so here's the plan...

    We will all meet, at Calcutta Grill Pub. Have a beer, cocktail, etc..., take advantage of their happy hour.

    Note, I posted 4pm, as our meetup time, but if you want to arrive earlier, their happy hour time, is from 3p to 5p.

    After happy hour, we can move the group to the dining room, or, if we're all comfortable where we're at, we can stay at the pub.

    At about 745p, we'll head out, so we can listen to the bag-piper... he usually starts about 8p... and, don't worry, he doesn't play for long... just enough, for us to enjoy the experience.

    Afterwards, we can stay out longer, taking photos, or head up to Wooly Toad, to play billiards and chill. By the way, there are awesome panoramic views from there, too!!!

    Ok... will see you all, in a few hours... I hope you're excited for this!!!

    Cheers!!!

      Hi Helene: That's great, glad you will join us, today! Yes, meet with us, anytime, that's why I set the hours we spend at the golf course, so we can leisurely spend our time, while we are up there. Ok... see you soon! Regards, Rosemarie

    I would love to attend this event...it sounds like a lot of fun! I won't be getting off work until 6p. Could I join in late? Depending upon traffic, it could be as late as 7p by the time I get there.

    1 · August 27, 2014

    • rosemarie

      Hi Ann: Absolutely, you are welcome to join the group, later. I have us starting earlier, for those who want to take advantage of the happy hour price on food, drinks and get acquainted time, before sunset and bagpipe tunes. If you arrive at 7p, you will still have time to order a beverage and drink it, then we can watch the bag-piper at sunset, approximately 8p. We will all still be at Calcutta Grill Pub. You can catch up, on the mingle time, when we head over to Wooly Toad, to hang out longer, or play billiards. Will see you soon! Regards, Rosemarie

  • Tara Jacobs G.

    Wish I could go, especially since I am of the Donald clan and my Grandfather was a Blackwatch Highlander, but I have a prior engagement. I think the Highland Games are over for 2014, but if anyone else here is interested, I would be game for something else Scottish-themed!

    August 27, 2014

    • rosemarie

      Hi Tara: I'm sorry you will miss it... There are others who will miss it, too, and have posted, or sent me messages... so, I will do this again... afterall, this event honors your heritage!!! In addition, we live in such a beautiful state, and receive so many people, from different states and countries, this is a 'must see' to share with everyone!!! I will send you a message, when I post this event again. Regards, Rosemarie

    Hi Folks:

    I posted some pics, I took a couple of weeks ago, when I was at Calcutta Grill... This will give you something to look forward to experiencing...

    Cheers!!!
