The Fresh Toast NW Launch In Seattle

Not many people can decline a party invitation to help kick off a lifestyle/entertainment site with a side of cannabis. And while some likely expected deep fried mozzarella sticks and a big screen showing of Super Troopers on a loop, this was a classy affair.

Upwards of 250 guests (check out our Flickr album) were treated to Dry Soda Toasties, Glass Vodka martinis and specialty cocktails as they snacked on grilled PB&J, deviled eggs and a variety of other comfort foods provided by the Coterie Worklounge.

Editor-in-Chief Kelly Barbieri flew in from the NYC office for the event, as did our “Texas Bureau” (a.k.a. writer Brendan Bures, who’s located in Austin, TX).

The line-up of guests was impressive: Seattle City Attorney Peter Holmes; Robby London,writer and producer of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe; Former Patriot and Seahawks player Lawyer Milloy; Amy and Dan Nordstrom; Sean Miller, Managing Partner of Origins; Jody Hall of  Cupcake Royale and Goodship; former President of US Bank, Ken Kirkpatrick and his wife Sasa; cocktail and lifestyle guru Kathy Casey; MJBA founder David Rheins; chef Jonathan Zimmer; Lissa Gruman of Gruman PR; and Butter London founder Sasha Muir.

At the launch, Founder-Publisher JJ McKay announced The Fresh Toast syndication with Sun Valley’s Weekly Sun, Pioneer News Media, Seattle Magazine,, and The New Tropic. He also announced a content partnership with IndieFlix, where TFT readers will get a complimentary weekly show from the online streaming service.

(Interesting note: during the party, IndieFlix was actually filming an episode of their new mockumentary called Grow Op. Look for The Fresh Toast to be featured in an upcoming episode!)

A special thank you to our event sponsors: The Goodship, American Baked Co., Pop! Gourmet, Talking Rain, Glass Vodka and Dry Soda Company, Origins, Diego Pellicer, Vela, Magic Kitchen, The Everygrey, The Coterie Worklounge, MJBA. Silver Scout, Radford Creative.
