Toast of the Cascades
by Mason Cheung

Sweeping views of the Cascade Mountain Range, music from Grammy Award-winning artists and a sea of Northwest wines to sip from; you’ve just hit the jackpot. Rolling back into the Snoqualmie Casino for another evening of entertainment is Toast of the Cascades on Aug. 24.

Hitting the casino’s Mountain View Plaza stage for this year’s event is award-winning jazz keyboardist Bob James and saxophonist David Sanborn. The show will be part of the duo’s latest tour after releasing their first album together since their 1986 Grammy Award-winning album “Double Vision.” Their new album, “Quartette Humaine,” was released last May, and is a tribute to the legendary pianist Dave Brubeck and saxophonist Paul Desmond.

While you relish in the casino’s outdoor ambiance and music, more than 20 great vintners from the Northwest will join the guests to provide the evening’s sips you’ll need to raise a glass and toast the Cascades.

Some of those attending will come from wineries such as Oregon’s A to Z Wineworks and Washington’s Alexandria Nicole Cellars, Seven Falls Winery and Waterbrook Winery.

Turn your evening into date night at the casino and dine in one of the six places to grab a bite, from quick snacks at the Sno Deli to a steak and seafood dinner at Terra Vista.

Roll the dice, play your cards and enjoy the show. But whatever you do, don’t fold on this evening.

Saturday, Aug. 24 || Doors open at 5:30 pm || Snoqualmie Casino’s Mountain View Plaza || 37500 SE North Bend Way || Tickets: $55 – $65
