Oh, goodie! Just got a sneak peek at the dessert lineup for Thursday’s Auction of Washington Wine Picnic, a winning combination of nostalgia-inspired sweets--root beer floats bring out the kid in everybody!--and trendy treats. Tulalip Resort Casino’s Nikol Nakamura has done it again!

Here’s what picnic-goers can expect:

  • Coconut Tapioca with mango-lime salad and mango sorbet
  • Mini Blueberry Hand Pies
  • Individual Pineapple Upside Down Cakes with black pepper whipped cream and cherries
  • Nutella with pistachios and sea salt fudge
  • Root Beer Floats with Snoqualmie gourmet vanilla ice cream and artisanal root Beer
  • Mimosa Jell-O Shots

It sure sounds spectacular. See you in the dessert tent?

The Picnic & Barrel Auction and Saturday's Gala both benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital and Washington State University’s Viticulture & Enology Program.
