30th Anniversary Wine Pairing Dinner – February 5, 2011
Featuring fine Anna Maria wines by Valley View Winery
Saturday, February 5, 2011
One seating: 6:30 PM, Prix fixe: $49.95
Call 541.482.0614 for tickets
Dear Green Springs Innsider,
Yes, it’s hard to believe. It’s been 30 years. On January 15, 1981, Barbara and Ron McHugh opened Green Springs Inn on a scenic byway in the Southern Cascades, a half hour’s drive east of Ashland. Today the Inn is the heart of a culinary and getaway community that includes residents of the Green Springs, friends from Southern Oregon and visitors from around the world.
On Saturday, February 5, 2011, Barbara (who continues to serve as our kitchen goddess) and Chef Jesse Sword will celebrate 30 years of great food and treasured relationships with an elegant five course dinner. Honored guests will include the proprietors of Valley View Winery, who, in 2006, celebrated the 30th anniversary of their first vintage.
Valley View will supply a premium Anna Maria wine to match each course.
For dinner reservations, call 541.482.0614 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide a MasterCard or VISA number to hold your place(s); no advance charge will be made to your account. We will accept cancellations up to Monday, January 31. After that date, we will charge a 50% fee or credit the whole amount to a future visit.
Better yet, purchase a stay-over package and relax for a night to two in a deluxe cabin or Jacuzzi room. Dinner and accommodations discounts are available for one or two people.
Whatever you do, don’t wait another 30 years. We’ll look for you on the mountain.

Jeff Golden Benefit
Whoa, that was fun! Siskiyou Summit was superb. Jeff Golden raised some bucks and heard our plea for broadband Internet. If you missed our Bluegrass Benefit, stay tuned. If great music, good food and grass roots politics can change the world, we are going to keep on doing it.
Chef Sword was out in the woods harvesting wild things last week. Look for some very special elderberry cobbler this weekend. Plus morel pasta from our stash of dried fungi from this past spring (currently retailing for $240/lb. at Dean & DeLucca in Manhattan––lots more affordable at GSI).
