BARTLETT, NH - Nestled in the Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire, the Attitash Grand Summit Resort Hotel is preparing for the 2nd Annual Girlfriends' Weekend, May 13-15. The all-inclusive weekend package includes two nights of lodging, all meals, culinary demos, wine tasting, brunch and a full slate of entertainment.
"The timing of this year's Girlfriends' Weekend makes it a perfect Mother's Day gift," said Gail St. Onge, reservations manager for The Grand. "There's going to be so much to do. Great food and wine is just a small part of the experience. It's going to be such a hoot."
Highlights of the weekend schedule include Saturday's five course wine dinner, a do-it yourself massage class, an on-site shopping and beauty expo with local vendors, multiple fitness options including yoga and pilates, a martini master class, comedy show by Carol Ann Small, and a game show.
"I'll be doing a culinary demonstration on Friday night," said Travis Giles, executive chef for The Grand. "It's Italian themed with dishes including Chicken Cacciatore, an Italian seafood specialty and Tiramisu."
Certain Girlfriend's weekend events are open to the public including the Friday night comedy show and Saturday's shopping and beauty expo, wine dinner and game show. The shopping and beauty expo is free to the public, the comedy show and game show are $10 each and Saturday's wine dinner is $55 per person plus tax and gratuity.
Girlfriends' Weekend overnight guests are automatically entered to win prizes including a two-night stay at The Grand. A 2005-2006 Bronze All For One Season Pass will also be given away over the weekend. The Pass will be valid, with certain blackout dates, at all eastern American Skiing Company resorts including Killington, Pico and Mount Snow in Vt., Attitash in N.H., and Sunday River and Sugarloaf/USA in Maine.
