Gaspar’s Construction and Handyman have teamed up year after year with SASG (Seattle Area Support Groups) for their annual Tree Sale.  This year our Handyman crew installed their racks for holding the trees.  They complimented our technicians by telling them that it is the best set up they’ve ever had. Everything is level and plumb.  I know what you’re thinking but our guys just can’t help making things just right.  If you’re in the Seattle area and out for your trip to purchase your Christmas Tree, make the trip special by supporting this great organization that helps so many in our area.

SASG is located at the corner of 17th Ave. E. and E. Thomas St. on Capitol Hill.  There are plenty of great places for a cup of great coffee close by and shopping is just down the hill.  Make a day of it!

303 17th Ave. E., Seattle, WA 98112.  The sale runs to 9:00 p.m. on December 23rd.

Merry Christmas!

Valrhona%20Single%20Estate%20Collection_tn[1]I went to a great store on Queen Anne the other night called Chocolopolis www.chocolopolis.com .  The owner Lauren Adler gave us a tasting of 6 different chocolates (my favorite was from Madagascar) as well as a lesson in the difference between a chocolate maker and a chocolatier.  I never knew there was a difference but a chocolate maker is someone who makes the actual chocolate from the cocoa beans and a chocolatier takes already made chocolate and turns it into a confection.

I also learned that we have our very own chocolate maker right here in town, Theo Chocolates.  So if you are craving some seriously great chocolate go visit Lauren at Chocolopolis on Queen Anne – 1527 Queen Anne Ave. N.  Seattle, WA 98109.  (206) 282-0776.
