Social engagements at Promontory were plentiful last week thanks to the club’s 17th birthday celebration and St. Patrick’s Day! Despite the wet weather for the birthday party at the Beach House, which was to include free tubing on the new Luke Ridge Tubing Hill for the kids, we had a great time gathering with other families to celebrate our amazing community. We even received vouchers to come back and enjoy the tubing hill on another day. The luck of the Irish must have delivered some great snowfall over the weekend, so you can bet we did just that! The kids had a blast making laps on the hill’s different lanes.
Back to the birthday shindig, the pastry whizzes at Promontory offered two different, wildly decadent cakes, and the kids sang happy birthday to Promontory! As new residents, we were fascinated to learn so much about the community’s culture of giving back to Park City and Summit County from General Manager Robin Milne. How cool is it that her family has been at Promontory from the beginning and she now oversees every aspect of the operation? From philanthropy to jobs to sales and tax property revenue, the Summit County community has been enriched by Promontory’s existence in so many tangible ways. And we are so proud and excited to be a part of this magical legacy.
Just three days later, Steve, the kids, and I headed to The Shed for Promontory’s annual St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The family-friendly affair was all about luck! There were mini chalkboards that all the members could use to write about what made them feel lucky. I was elated to see my daughter, Katie write “moving to Utah!” And, of course, leprechauns made appearances throughout the day to hand out candy and spread even more luck to the members. About 100 guests agreed that the party was the place to be. We all feasted on an impressive spread of corned beef and cabbage. The kids especially enjoyed the shamrock cookies and gold and green chocolate coins. At least they could burn off the sugar high on the bowling lanes and basketball court, two of their favorite activities at The Shed. Adults mingled in their green attire and enjoyed some Irish liquid traditions like Jameson, green beer, Guinness and Murphy’s Irish Stout.
Speaking of The Shed, it has become one of my family’s preferred hangouts at Promontory. It’s such a fun vibe for any age. It’s like a sports pub on adrenaline with casual food, bowling lanes, basketball court, art studio, video games, billiards, shuffleboard and even a gorgeous movie theater with about 50 seats. The kids can explore freely and make friends. We hear the outdoor summer concerts and barbecue fare are fabulous at the amphitheater just outside The Shed. We can’t wait for that!
