Gary Smith (together with his wife Beth) is the owner and founder of Mukilteo Coffee Roasters and Café in the Woods on Whidbey Island.

In the early 80's when coffee was creating a buzz around Seattle, Gary Smith had his first taste of what he called the “Nectar of the Gods.” Blown away by the quality of this coffee his passion was ignited, and he opened one of the nation's first espresso carts in front of the Seahorse Restaurant by the Mukilteo ferry dock in 1983. He eventually started dating the beautiful woman he purchased coffee from, Beth Korvin (Stewart Brothers/Seattle's Best). 

Fast-forward to marriage & two sons, together they created a successful coffee roasting operation based on Whidbey Island and with customers around the world. Their passion for great coffee, healthy food, and friendships has attracted a loyal following of customers that has since grown globally.


Herb Gould is the President of Anthony’s Restaurants.

Gould oversees 31 Anthony’s locations in Washington, Idaho and Oregon as well as the company’s seafood company which is committed to sourcing the best seafood throughout the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Hawaii, supporting local fisheries and their families.

This event is by reservation only and a portion of the $20 admission fee will go to Whidbey Island Nourishes (WIN).
