Feast of Februa the Goddess of Passion Event this past Sunday

The Feast of Februa went off wonderfully. We had an old friend Jon Inonueri that is now working at a high end Seattle Restaurant come up and work the event with us. With our current staff and Jon who used to work at Rifugio's made it a smooth event for a sold out evening. The Octopus and Lamb were the stars of the event.

Rifugio's Honors Februa - Roman Goddess of Passion and Mother of Mars

Februa - The Roman Goddess of Passion and Mother of Mars

At Rifugio's we are in love with food and have a "Passion" for excitement and history. We strive for a warm and comforting environment and learning about where our food and culture come from. We love stories real and fictional. We are so glad that we are able to have both Feast and Valentine's Day which has its roots in the old legends of Februa.
