*Thursdays are “Pay What You Can” at the door.What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noël Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife, Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingénue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime. Death by Design is more than homage – it’s a new classic.

Everybody knows the Brothers Grimm’s most famous fairy tale. But what if they told it from the wrong point of view? Stepsisters tells the totally-true-and-not-at-all-made-up version of the little cinder girl. When Drew and Beth are thrown into the dungeon for conspiring against the throne, these stepsisters, who are not wicked, evil and certainly not ugly, are forced to tell their fellow prisoners the real story of what happened with Cinderella. Part flashback, part story theatre and all high-octane musical comedy, the story unfolds in ways the Grimm tale never did.

Doubleback Winery Winemaker’s Dinner

April 26th, 2019 at Coho Restaurant

Josh McDaniels was born and raised in Walla Walla and at an early age fell in love with the wine industry. It was at Leonetti Cellars that he first witnessed the hard work and beauty that goes into creating a premium wine. Josh cultivated his interest in the industry by volunteering at local wineries and making his own wine as a young teen. He furthered his passion with formal education while continuing to work with his mentor, Chris Figgins of Leonetti. He then traveled to Argentina to intern at Paul Hobbs’ Vina Cobos Winery.

Doubleback has four estate vineyards each with a different soil, elevation and micro-climate. These differences allow Josh to naturally blend Doubleback’s wine to a higher level of quality and create a true experience of Walla Walla terroir. Join us for this remarkable evening of food and wine.

These evenings are always memorable and sell out quickly. Dinner is $55/person for 5 courses and $50 for the optional wine pairing.
