Wine Flights Available at The Plank House and Whitecaps Restaurants

Dining, Hotel News Comments Off

We have some news to “wine” about.  The Plank House Restaurant and Whitecaps Lounge are now offering wine flights to our guests!

Wine flights, also known as “tasting flights”, are a chance to sample a variety of wines in one setting.  Think of it like a mini wine tasting party, right at your table.

Wine Flights are an opportunity to explore your palate and compare three wines for the equivalent price and volume of one regular glass.

Maybe you will sample three wines from one winery, or you may compare one varietal (such as Chardonnay) from three wineries.

We are also now offering “Wine Discovery Evenings by the Bay” on Mondays and Tuesdays so guests can purchase premium wines by the bottle for half the regular price. Ask your server for details!

Wine Discovery Evenings and Wine Flights are the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day while enjoying a spectacular view of the water. Linger over a romantic sunset dinner paired with the perfect wine at the bay-side Plank House Restaurant or relax with a glass of wine in the smoke-free, waterfront Whitecaps lounge.

Study reveals economic impact of The Mill Casino and the Coquille Tribal government

Coquille Tribe, Press Releases Comments Off

ECONorthwest, a Eugene-based economic consulting firm, recently conducted an independent study to measure the total economic impact of The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park and the Coquille Tribal government in 2010 (the most recent data available).

The study revealed that over 1,300 local jobs and over $125 million in economic output in 2010 can be directly or indirectly traced to business and governmental activity of the Coquille Indian Tribe.

According to the post, ECONorthwest Estimates the Economic Impact of the Coquille Indian Tribe and Mill Casino, the principal measures of economic impacts used in this report are:

  • Output: the final value of all goods and services produced. For businesses, this is approximately equal to sales. For Tribal government, output equals total spending.
  • Labor Income: workers’ wages and benefits, including self-employment income.
  • Jobs: full- and part-time employment.

The report added that many of the purchases by The Mill Casino • Hotel “are for services and products that come from suppliers inside Coos County. This spending, combined with the high proportion of county residents working at The Mill, means that dollars spent by The Mill circulate further in the local economy. The ultimate impact is greater economic output, higher incomes, and more jobs in both Coos County and Oregon.”
