Munchies? Restaurant tour operator adds cannabis events

Munchies, anyone? Bryce Lathrop of White Mustache Urban Adventures, the food-loving “gastro-guide” who we profiled last year for his personalized food tours of Seattle, is adding a “high-end all-inclusive marijuana adventure” to his special events. “Are you going to call it the “Weed & Feed Tour”? a Facebook fan asked.

There’s no recipe for a “gastro-guide” like Bryce Lathrop.

He’s one part restaurant critic, the type that only steers you to the good stuff. He’s a customer who can always get a table at the most crowded place. He’s driver, raconteur and entrepreneur, mixing them all together to create his White Moustache eating tours of Seattle.

The highly personalized tours, where Lathrop transports customers around town and arranges for choice eats to fit their tastes, are now a full-time success for Lathrop. It’s the latest venture in a résumé that spans a long list of so-called “stupid ideas,” including a trucking business involving plastic fencing, along with very good ideas, like a chain of cybercafes. (The cafes were the source of the original White Moustache name, which describes the foam a latte leaves on the face.) Even the trucking business may not have been such a bad idea in retrospect; that’s where the Northwest native, broken down in Alabama one day, met a “super hospitable and generous” local who made him feel like he was part of their tiny town. The encounter made him think he could start a food tour here imparting some of that same spirit.

After being named Seattle’s best food attraction by the editors of Forbes Travel, beating out the Theo Chocolate factory tour and Pike Place Market, he recently opened a Vancouver, B.C., branch of White Moustache and is also set to open soon in Portland.
