Epicureans Afloat

PORT TOWNSEND — The public is invited to sign up for Epicureans Afloat — a portable, seagoing fundraiser set for Thursday benefiting the Jefferson County Historical Society.

The cruise begins at 5 p.m. Tickets are $140 each, of which $50 is a charitable donation, according to a news release.

During the scenic voyage aboard the Glacier Spirit, participants will travel between Port Townsend, Irondale, Port Ludlow and Kala Point — with the passing shoreline coming alive as area historians and authors tell tales of seafaring, Native Americans, pioneers, military defenses and the Port Townsend Bay Monster, according to the release.

The Glacier Spirit, a whale watching boat, features large viewing windows, a snack bar, a full certified galley, two restrooms and an outside viewing deck around the entire cabin.

After more than 20 years of holding Epicurean dinners in private homes as a major fundraiser for the Jefferson County Historical Society, Dorothy Cotton Banks, event co-chair said, “We decided to shake things up, do something different this year and gather everyone together for an Epicurean Cruise.”

Her event co-chair, Kris Lawson said, “The cruise from Port Townsend to Port Hadlock will feature fine local foods, wine, beer and cider.”

For reservations, call 360-385-1003 or visit http://jchsmuseum.org/.
