New Mercedes Store For Barrier Motors

Last week Ken and I attended the grand opening celebration of the new Barrier Motors Mercedes store in Bellevue.  It was a huge turnout of over 400 people who were there to see brand-new Mercedes, to see and be seen, and to sip wine and savor the delicious as Daniel's Broiler passed hors d'oeuvres.  The automobiles sparkled and so did the many VIP guests in attendance. The new dealership building is a spectacular space with very hiceilings and an immense showroom floor along with major service bay areas, office spaces and customer waiting areas.  The architecture was handled by friend, Lance Mueller who was attending the celebration along with his wife, Chloe.

As we arrived, we immediately ran into many other friends including Peggy & Michael SwistakSue & Chuck AndonianJerome BrownSaSa & Ken Kirkpatrick,Gail Cottle & Ren BrownLillian & Anthony Bay, plus many others.  The party hosts included our dear friends, Patty & Jimmy BarrierKjell Schei, and Michael Vena.We also saw several friends who own wineries there pouring their wines including Anne-Marie & Tom Hedges of Hedges Family Estate, Bijal Shah of Woodhouse Wine Estates and Jay Soloff of DeLille Cellars.  Jay was so pleased that their new Doyenne 2008 Syrah had just received a 94 point rating.  I tasted it and thought it was lovely.  

Congratulations to PattyJimmyMichael and Kjell and everyone at Barrier Motors on your beautiful new dealership space!
