Szmania’s 20th anniversary

August 31st, 2010 · 29 Comments

A Magnolia landmark is celebrating 20 years in business with a number of special events throughout September.


When Chef Ludger and his wife Julie opened Szmania’s in the Magnolia Village in 1990 they had a one year old son and a baby on the way.  Today, you can often see the three Szmamia boys (two are in college and one is high school)working in the restaurant.  The Szmania family is committed to Magnolia and their restaurant has made our neighborhood a dining destination for many.

Julie says that the past 20 years have been filled with their three sons, 19 pets, hundreds of great employees, and about a million pounds of Schnitzel.  Its been exciting and rewarding and she wants to thank the many loyal customers and friends they have made along the way.  They have packed September with lots of fun events and an appreciation savings opportunity for customers:

  • First off you can buy $50 gift certificates for just $40 until September 20.  
  • The official 20th anniversary party happens on Monday, September 20th with a kick off party for Oktoberfest.  Expect German food, music and beer along with a drawing for gift certificates and more. Call for reservations.
  • The Everything Blueberry "Sip & Dip" is set for Tuesday, September 14th  6:30 – 8:30 p.m.  In conjunction with Washington Organic Week and Whitehorse Meadows Farm they will be celebrating local organic wines & growers. For $35 per person you get three wines and three courses involving one of the most healthy berries ever.
  • The fall harvest cooking class happens on Wednesday, September 29th at 6 p.m. when Chef Ludger will prepare a four-course dinner while walking you through his recipes and secret chef tips.  Bring any fall vegetable and he’ll teach you how to cook it.  Pre-paid tickets are $55 per person, not including tax, gratuity or beverages.  Space is limited to 12 hungry, eager-to-learn guests.

Give the restaurant a call at (206) 284-7305 for reservations or gift certificates.  You can also visit their facebook page for the latest news.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
