Hey all! Hard to believe it’s February already, but we sure are enjoying all of those daffodils and crocus popping their pretty little heads out of the ground!

February brings lots of excitement every year, when we all start gearing up for Mystery Weekend. This will be the 33rd year that Langley is taken over by sleuths of all ages, trying to solve the annual ‘whodunnit’ mystery. Check out details here: http://visitlangley.com/lp/mystery-weekend/ and come join in the fun that takes over our quaint little town! February 25 & 26 this year.

If you have been in lately, you may have noticed our BEAUTIFUL new tabletops, made locally by the amazing team at Turnco Wood Goods, in Clinton. It was time for a little change, and he did a beautiful job sprucing up our space with reclaimed wood tables. Check them out online at http://turncowoodgoods.com and visit their sister shop in Clinton, Make Whidbey, just up the hill from the ferry!

Also new this month, Ron Kasprisin has his beautiful watercolors on display here. Ron’s one of our favorite local characters, and he’s an impressively talented artist as well. We’re thrilled to host his newest show. You can check out some of his work online here: http://www.ronkasprisin.com/default.asp and come in to take a look in person as well!

It’s that time of year again! We’re welcoming the holiday season with another gorgeous front door installation by Melissa and Ben at Flying Bear Farm. Their sweet family spent LOTS of hours hand making fabric roses to hang on beautiful vines around our door. It’s for Langley’s annual Deck The Doors contest, and they did an amazing job (again)! The results will be held at the Boy and Dog Park on 1st Street at 1:00pm on Saturday, December 17th!

We will be open on Saturday, December 24th from 7:00am – 1:30pm (closing early)
CLOSED CHRISTMAS DAY

Wow! Well, it’s fall….. what happened to summer! ?

We had our busiest summer yet here at The Braeburn, and we couldn’t be happier about it! Lots of visitors and locals alike, enjoying beautiful Langley and all that it has to offer during the bustling, beautiful summer season. We want to thank everyone who chose to come out and dine with us, and we’ll hope to see you all again soon!

 

While we’re always sad to see the “season” go, fall brings LOTS of amazing things too! The sun is still shining, but the days are cooler, the air is just a bit more “crisp”…. and the native Vermonter in me brings out all sorts of nostalgic feelings of autumn love! It starts to feel like the time of the year where you really should be eating pancakes, with our delicious Vermont Grade B Maple Syrup, of course. And our amazing local farms start to add winter squash to their fresh lists, which means SQUASH AND PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!!!! The kitchen staff is forever picking on me for my squash and pumpkin addition. I order insane amounts as soon as it starts coming in, and want to add delicata squash to every dish, and have roasted squash soup every day. We’ll try and keep it to a reasonable amount for everyone’s taste, but I sure to have to practice restraint!

Our hours will be changing, as of Monday, October 3rd, where we will start closing at 3:00pm instead of 4:00pm from now through the winter. Opening hours will remain the same, 8:00am Monday-Friday, and 7:00am on the weekends.

 

The other amazing thing that happens this time of the year is DJANGOFEST!!!! For those of you unfamiliar with the festival, it is North American’s premier Gypsy Jazz Music Festival, and to say that we are lucky to welcome the caliber of amazing musicians that come to our little town for this event, would be an understatement. It starts Wednesday evening, 9/21 and runs through Sunday evening 9/25. We will be open our normal hours, until 4:00pm every day during the festival. Here’s a link to the WICA website where the official, ticketed shows are, and where you can check out the full lineup for this year: http://www.wicaonline.org/events-calendar-view/2016/9/21/the-16th-annual-international-jazz-music-festival-djangofest-northwest

On another note, we’ve been fielding many inquiries as to whether we will be serving a Thanksgiving dinner this year, and we will not be. While we so enjoyed hosting a Thanksgiving dinner here for several years, we decided to take the holiday off, and let our staff enjoy the day with their families and friends. The fabulous folks at The Roaming Radish will be serving up a great meal in their awesome new space though, so check out their website to inquire about further details! http://www.roamingradish.com/ . The Inn at Langley http://www.innatlangley.com/ also serves an amazing, one of a kind experience, dinner on Thanksgiving day.

We hope you’ve all had a terrific summer season, and we’ll hope to see you soon! CHEERS!
