The Weather Report - July 2019
THE WEATHER REPORT
There’s a fun, relaxed way to throw a dinner party. You put some delicious dips in small bowls, steam and/or slice some veggies, maybe toss in some seafood or whatever else you want, and put it all on a big platter (oh, and eat with your fingers). The French perfected this ritual with The Grand Aioli, commonly found around the terraces of Provence after an early-spring or late-summer garlic harvest. READ MOREby Amy Musser

Interview with Alex Connelly, Painter
This body of work has all been created over the past two years during my time in Seattle. I have been inspired by this new city, the energy and nature that surrounds us. I develop my shows up until the day that I set them up so there may be some surprises in the mix! My shows always change from what I think they will look like to what they actually look like. It is absolutely essential to curate the pieces that fit the space. A paint stroke on a canvas is to the canvas what a painting in a space is to the space as a whole. Each painting has purpose and each piece must be hung in a way that develops a harmony within the environment of the show. READ MOREArt installation up at The Cloud Room May 2019-August 2019

Member Q+A with Andrew Means
Today I try to pursue the things that truly nourish and excite me, which tend to have some amount of challenge or jeopardy but much higher rewards. I try to dispense with the things that are mindless (e.g. Instagram, Reddit) and force myself to be intentional and schedule time for the things I love. I still waste a fair amount of time, but it’s surprising how much extra you can do when you clear out some of the chaff. READ MORE
Interview with Chef Makini Howell “I felt there needed to be a space for vegans that gave us the same upscale dining experience for all of our life moments that everyone else has; A place for celebrations and marriage proposals, graduations and all of life's special moments— A happy place.” READ MORE.

"Super fun. Great venue. Great musicians. Great cocktails. Great people." - Renny Feb 21 2018
Celebrated LA Chef Jesse Barber joins Napa Valley Vintner Lorenzo Trefethen in Seattle for an evening of remarkable food and wine hosted by Michael Hebb and The Cloud Room.
Barber, Trefethen and Hebb have been hosting dinners together for the past decade, in fact they even built a table together from the historic Trefethen oak tree after it was toppled by a storm. The dinners have occurred on several continents, but August 13th is the first time these three friends will gather a table in Seattle.
Jesse Barber has cooked and helmed the stove in the most renowned restaurants in the U.S., The French Laundry, Per Se, The Tasting Kitchen, clarklewis - and opened his own establishments in LA - always receiving absurd amounts of adoring praise. His passionate food stands outside of the run-of-the-mill farm to table genre and has a personality and style that is timeless and always pushing at the edge of what we know about food.
Lorenzo Trefethen may be the most joyous person in the wine business and he has every reason to be. The third generation family-run vineyard that bears his name has won countless awards, famously triumphing over the French in 1979 at the Gault Millau Wine Olympics and earning the distinction of "Best Chardonnay in the World". In a valley of jacked-up overly-oaked international-style wines, Trefethen continues to craft wines that showcase restraint and a sense of place. Led by Lorenzo and his sister Hailey, Trefethen has quietly become a pioneer in sustainability, adding people, not chemicals, and without fanfare converting all winery operations to solar power.
Facing Homelessness / The Block Project
This special event marked the unveiling and launch of the BLOCK Project, an integrated solution to homelessness powered by the compassion of community. For less than the median price of a single home in Seattle, we are ending homelessness for 20 people living unsheltered in our city. Joined by founders Rex Hohlbein and Jenn LaFreniere , and renowned chefs Jon Sundstrom and Brendan Mcgill

Cuniform + Dress for Success
Dress for Success Seattle helps disadvantaged women achieve financial independence with dignity. For the past 15 years, from their current downtown location, they have provided women with free professional attire in order to help them gain and/or maintain jobs and resources. Clothing should never be a barrier to success. Now, in order to keep its doors open to our community, Dress for Success Seattle is in urgent need of funds and a new space.
The founders of cuniform, Christine Tran and Colton Winger, will be hand-selecting garments from this massive clothing inventory, available for purchase at wallet-friendly prices. Buying and wearing recycled clothing is not only the most sustainable way to shop, but you’ll also have two professional stylists around to answer any and all of your fashion questions, and ALL proceeds will go directly to Dress for Success Seattle.
Earth-To-Dinner founder Michael Hebb led us in an evening discussing climate change, while over 500 Earth-To-Dinner events dotted the globe on the same night.
