Jill and Mike Chaffee

Jill is a speech therapist and Mike works in real estate, they have three children together. This fun couple shared that “We love to dine at Adrian’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar on Old Main. It’s very intimate with only 13 tables. They have a great atmosphere, friendly staff, and upscale authentic Mexican food. And who doesn’t love Tequila?”

Kat Wickersham

Kat is the owner of Deep Roots, a local luxury piercing and fine jewelry store, as well as mom to Rider and wife to Rion. “When we have a date night or a special occasion to celebrate, you’ll find us at Ascend. Working and parenting with your spouse can be challenging, so it’s important to us that we prioritize our time together. We love everything about Ascend, from the unparalleled view and exceptional service to the gorgeous food and wine pairings. We always feel like we’ve shared a memorable experience together after an evening at Ascend.”

Paul Parong

Paul is a VP of Sales & Marketing, husband of 44 years and has one child and two grandchildren. He tells Bellevue Lifestyle, “One of the most romantic and nostalgic spots for us in Bellevue is 13 Coins – we love the Chef's Counter (we even have chairs we request!). We dated and were married in the 70's and used to go to the Seattle location at all hours of the night for the "Joe's Special." They could never kick us out because it was open 24 hours!”
