Corks and Canvas Events, like a work of fine art, came about by pairing a good idea with a passion to create. The founders both came from the marketing world, where they spent their days devising campaigns and events to inspire their audiences to take action. A shared love for art and wine inspired them to bend their action-creating talents toward a new goal—hosting painting and wine events in area wineries and wine bars, allowing guests to "uncork their creativity" and promote the burgeoning Washington wine industry in a social setting.
Their idea took the form of Corks and Canvas Events, where experienced artists lead guests step-by-step through the painting creation process. Guests re-create various paintings, everything from lush vineyard scenes to preening roosters, while sipping on glasses of local wines.
With thumping sound systems, color-changing LED lights, and wraparound leather seating, SeattlePartyLimo.com’s party buses exude a club-like atmosphere. The buses, which seat 16–28, escort groups to events and destinations of all kinds, from actual nightclubs to proms, weddings, sporting events, and wineries. Behind the wheel of each bus sits a CDL-certified driver with 10 years of navigation experience. Throughout the ride, passengers can quaff BYO drinks as they hook up their iPods to the sound system or safely make faces at passing truck drivers from behind tinted windows.
Be it for business or pleasure, Lady in a Limo transports its clients on time and in style. A staff of friendly chauffeurs maintains a fleet of vehicles that range from Chrysler sedans to Hummer limousines. For nights out, they shuttle passengers around in a 16-passenger party bus built with hardwood floors and black-leather perimeter seating and equipped with a disco ball, a 37-inch flat screen TV with a high-watt stereo, and a pole for dancing.
Customized Tours leads groups on guided expeditions of Seattle's most breathtaking spots. Outdoor adventurers can try the Mount Rainier National Park tour or the winery and waterfall tour, which travels across Lake Washington on the 7,700-foot Evergreen Point floating bridge to the world-renowned Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. City tours explore a variety of coffee shops and tourist attractions across the Queen Anne, Fremont, and Chinatown neighborhoods.
One of the more unique tours is the Boeing Factory tour, which gives visitors a behind-the-scenes look at airplane assembly. It also gives them a chance to design their own airplanes using touch-screen computers, or, for traditionalists, old geometry homework.
Seattle Green Limo lays claim as the Emerald City's first eco-friendly chauffeur service, and its vegetable-powered fleet of luxury vehicles ferries Earth-enamored citizens to and from their desired destinations. Seattle Green Limo's fuel reduces CO2 emissions by more than 80% and is as biodegradable and edible as sugar, making it safer to imbibe than most energy drinks. And unlike traditional limousines, the seats in Seattle Green Limos are not upholstered in panda.
