Alyeska at a Glance
By Stephanie Drescher
February is traditionally known as the month of romance. Two critical components of romance are nourishment and music. This month, Alyeska is serving both on a sparkling, silver platter.
Seven Glaciers, arguably the most romantic spot at The Hotel Alyeska, is expanding its schedule to not two, not three, but four days a week. Seven Glaciers is open for lunch and dinner Friday-Sunday and exclusively open for dinner on Thursday night.
If you are heading up on Sunday, make sure you ask about the Prix Fixe menu, only available on Sunday. Reservations are also available for Feb. 14; a special Valentine’s Day Chef’s Tasting Menu will be available featuring Crab Platters, Poached Oysters and White Chocolate Kirsch Mousse.
To make Valentine’s Day even more special, the resort is digging into the Wine Cellar atop the mountain at Seven Glaciers and sharing special wines at a lesser price. In Feb. and Mar., a selected list will be available to buy from Seven Glaciers while enjoying your time in the mountaintop restaurant.
The music component for the month of February will be provided by The Sitzmark Bar & Grill. Two great acts, one tried and true and the other hot and new, are coming to soak up the lights and dominate the Sitzmark stage. On February 14-16, North Mississippi Allstars will bring their modern Mississippi country blues to the mountains. Talented musician and brothers, Luther and Cody Dickinson received their musical gifts from their father, Memphis legend Jim Dickinson.
The brothers have been making music and records all their lives while honing their craft and touring the world. Eventually, North Mississippi Allstars was born and the brothers have pioneered their own brand of blues-infused rock and roll. Ladies are free on Valentine’s Day. Tickets are $20. The show starts at 10 p.m. for the 21 and over event.
Following on the smoky trail of the Mississippi blues, is a new sound, never heard before. The band Maximum Love Vibes featuring Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, Jerry Joseph and Steve and John Kimock of the Zero and The Other Ones will take to the stage on February 21-23. This much anticipated, unique show is sure to be talked about for years to come. Tickets are $30 and the show starts at 10 p.m. This event is 21 and over.
