Holiday Wine Tasting
What an exciting time of year! The spirit of Christmas is in full swing. The house is decorated as is the Chateau Avalon. It is a really fun season, but don't forget exhausting as well. Am I the only person who is tired of waiting in line at the checkout at a store with 35 checkout lanes but only eight of them open? If you don't open them now when on earth would you? Pet peeve #2 not being able to find a parking space at the Legends Shopping center.
At least on this one I have a helpful solution for you. As you know we have a limo service that shuttles our guests to Village West destinations from 5-10 PM on weekends. Now I am opening this up to you shoppers that want to get dropped off right out front and picked up as well in Village West. The Legends has valet service for $5 now. We do it for free. (Adults only please) Just park in our lot and ask our front desk Ambassador for a ride. While you are here check out our gift certificates for that special someone on your Christmas list.
With the holiday season also comes cold weather. Please remember those that are less fortunate at this time of year. The Chateau Avalon is proud to be a sponsor of Project Warmth with KCTV5. If you have new or gently used warm coats put them to use with this great cause. Check out their telethon from 6:30 - 7 PM December 9th. You might even see me on there :)
Also for those of you with friends who are teachers or in the military make sure they follow our blog on our new web site. On it we will be offering a special 50% off deal for those folks this month. We really appreciate all they do for us.
From all of us at the Chateau Avalon have a Merry Christmas.
The Christmas decor has been going up all over the Chateau Avalon the last two days. I always love watching this transition. Then when I get home I have the kids wanting to do the same thing there. So this week feels like 24/7 decorating. Just call me Fenwick the Elf.
Speaking of "elf", I just bought a copy of the movie Elf for the Chateau Avalon. It has become one of my personal Christmas classics along with such noteables as Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation and of course Its A Wonderful Life. So if you stay with us in December be sure and ask to watch it. Will Ferrel is hilarious as the man-child elf.
There are lots of fun things happening at the Chateau Avalon this month. Tomorrow (December 2) is the December Wine Tasting. We are going to be sampling little known wines that you can pair with holiday favorites like ham and turkey. Chef Eric has some great appetizers in the works. I am sure the whole hotel will start smelling great sometime tomorrow afternoon. If you haven't gotten your tickets yet we have 6 left as of the time of this writting. Call the front desk to get yours (913) 596-6000.
In addition to the wine tasting this month, we have the pleasure of hosting a number of company's Christmas parties. We make special rate deals in December for groups that want to host their annual holiday party and offer the safety and convenience of a hotel suite so no one has to drive. There are a few dates remaining so contact Jayme if you would like have one for yourself.
Last but not least, December is by far our biggest gift certificate sales month. If you don't think Dad wants another sweater, or if you just can't think of what to get for that employee or client that went the extra mile, give the gift of an escape to Chateau Avalon. We have companies that have bought all of their Christmas gifts for employees here. The more you buy the more you save.
OK after such a self-serving, blantant commercial I think it is important to remind you, and myself, what this holiday is truly about. Its not about what we get but what we got a little over 2,000 years ago. Merry Christmas.
