Wine and Food Experience Offers New Pier to Table Dinner

An elegant evening of dining and dancing is coming to Gig Harbor this summer as part of the 3-day Wine and Food Experience.  The Pier to Table dinner, featuring a delightful 4-course meal highlighted with freshly caught Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, includes a Cocktail Hour, a silent auction with a treasure trove of “experiences”, premium wines and delicious brews, a dessert bar and live music for your dancing and listening pleasure under the evening sky.  This extraordinary experience takes place at the Midway outdoor courtyard at the Harbor History Museum on Friday, July 27, from 6-10pm, and has limited seating.  Tickets are available now on or at

The evening begins with a Cocktail Hour featuring a signature cocktail prepared by Gig Harbor’s Heritage Distilling. Premium wines from Willamette Valley Vineyards and brews provided by Gig Harbor’s 7 Seas Brewing will be available throughout the evening. Elijah Bossenbroek will mesmerize all with his piano wizardry in the Midway courtyard.

The 4-course Pier to Table meal features freshly caught Alaskan Sockeye Salmon prepared by Chef Richard Dengler and Christina Dengler, owners of Gig Harbor’s popular waterfront treasure, Devoted Kiss Café.  Additional local chefs will help prepare the meal using farm to table accompaniments from Gig Harbor’s Waterfront Farmers Market vendors.  The chefs, along with farmers and fishermen, will detail the process of harvest and preparation of the meal.

As dinner concludes, participants will enjoy listening and dancing to the music of Paul Green and his band.  Both an award-winning blues artist and a jazz vocalist, he was inducted into the Washington State Blues Society Hall of Fame, and the annual Best Blues Harmonica Award was named after him by that same organization. In 2017, the Blues Society presented Paul with their Life Time Achievement Award. His unique vocal and harmonica style have won him praise from both fans and fellow musicians alike.
