Bread Winners

Spirits rise at this Seattle cocktail hour

Get bready, get set, mingle.

La Brea Bakery is kicking off the Breaking Bread Tour, a coast-to-coast celebration of making bread the artisanal way, including inspired pairings and parties at local restaurants and farmers' markets.

Join them in Seattle on Thursday, August 13, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. They'll be parking at The Coterie Room for a cocktail party featuring their fluffy, light-as-air loaves. Buy your tickets now ($25 a person) to unwind with unlimited, highly sippable libations and canapés all evening long.

Here's a taste of what you'll be enjoying (see the full menu):

 Salmon and mascarpone crostini on slices of La Brea Bakery French Baguettes dotted with fried capers

• White peach salad tossed with beets and La Brea Bakery Whole Grain breadcrumbs

 Pork rillette with mustard, cabbage and plum on warm La Brea Bakery Stuffing Bread

Classic Aviation cocktail made with floral crème de violette, maraschino liqueur and gin

Artisanal breads deserve craft drinks, so reserve your spot and raise a glass in the company of fellow loaf lovers.
