Hi Steve,

I'm new to Seattle - and exploring all of the great restaurants here. I just looked at your website - your restaurants look great - can't wait to try them!

I also noticed that you know a lot of people here. I need your advice - I'm looking for a marketing job (local store marketing in my specialty). Can you think of anyone that I should contact or network with in the Seattle area that might need someone with my experience?

Thanks in advance for your help.
Warmest Regards,

I wanted to personally invite you to join our discussions in regards to cheeses at the Cheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us. We could use someone like yourself who could give us some good, positive feedback.
