We had such a fabulous turn out on our first two world tours, Coho Restaurant’s third Global Cuisine tours begins in November. Instead of jet setting from country to country each week, we are planning a “Slow Food” tour. We will savor the cuisine of each country for 3-4 weeks and then travel on. This will give us more time to savor and explore the distinctive flavors of regional cooking.
Starting on November 12th in the southern Italy, we will feature dishes from Sicily. Then we will travel north to Rome, Tuscany, Liguria and Piedmonte. After our winter recess, we will pick up our tour in France. Chef Bill will offer a special 3-course prix fixe dinner each Wednesday in addition to our regular menu. We’ll also feature some of our favorite wines during our travels. Great value along with great food!
November 12 – Sicily
November 19 – Rome
November 26 – Tuscany
December 10 – Liguria
December 17 – Piedmonte
We look forward to having you for dinner.
Autumn on San Juan Island is colorful! The leaves are turning, the wildlife is scurrying around preparing for colder weather, big yellow school buses amble down the roads, scarves and shawls of every hue are seen on Islanders, and the water is a deep green color against the crisp blue skies. Life slows down a bit, and we reconnect with our friends and neighbors after a busy and productive tourism season.
But Tucker House Inn and Harrison House Suites are certainly still welcoming visitors! Our Arts Community is a 365 days a year operation, from amateur groups to professional and world renown artist exhibitions. The San Juan Community Theatre is offering a Playwright’s Festival, several concerts and a variety of HD Streamed Plays and Operas. The Friday Harbor Film Festival, in its third year, brings three days of pacific rim themed documentaries to the Island, and we even have a TedX Talk scheduled.
Creative taste buds will enjoy Savor the San Juans in October, Oktoberfest, Bite of the San Juans, and the continuing Farmers’ Market every Saturday at Brickworks.
Music, art, lectures, food, beautiful cool weather….indulge yourself!

Guests at Tucker House Inn, Friday Harbor, WA, have a unique opportunity to watch free movies on Saturday evenings in September, just a few steps away from the doors of Tucker House. In Sunken Park, located at B Street between Harrison and Nichols, Island Rec will be showing free outdoor movies, beginning at dusk. Sunken Park is a Friday Harbor town park, built in the 1930’s and recently renovated with additional playground equipment and upgraded basketball areas.
Early arrivals will participate in games and contests, and there is free popcorn! Costumes themed to the movie being shown are encouraged. Join our community in this family entertainment (and I can’t wait for Momma Mia!)
Bring something to sit on, your own snacks and drinks, and some warm wraps for when the sun goes down. Dusk will be around 7:30 in September. See you there!
Friday Harbor Art Market (FHAM) – 3-7pm
Friday Harbor Art Market Starts June 19
The third year of the Friday Harbor Art Market will be on Fridays, from 3-7pm, starting June 19, 2014. The Art Market will continue to be held outdoors on the Brickworks Plaza on Sunshine Alley until September 04. The Art Market provides a great venue for artists and musicians and an additional fun, family experience for tourists and island residents and their guests.
There will be several artist booths each week with a variety of local art for sale: pottery, jewelry, photographs, clothing, sculpture, textiles, paintings, soaps, woodwork, and more. There will also be a little food and live music throughout the afternoon. For more information, contact Debbie Pigman, email@example.com or 360 472-0216.
Picture yourself taking a short walk from your suite at Tucker House Inn or Harrison House Suites in Friday Harbor. It is a summer evening, the sun doesn’t set until much later, and it is cool enough for a light jacket. You might be going to sit on the lawn at the San Juan Historical Museum to listen to the tunes, or you could be joining a crowd at the San Juan Community Theatre at a blues concert. Down at the harbor, musicians are gearing up for music down near the docks.
How cool is that?
