As promised, Gov. Chris Gregoire is apparently in full pitchwoman mode on her trade mission to Mexico. She's touting the state's apples, cherries, wines, beef and other products at a Mexico City Costco today.
A sampling from the schedule:
11:25 a.m.: Starbucks promotion
12:05 p.m.: Washington wine promotion at Vinoteca
3:00 p.m: Washington french fry promotion at WINGS (a casual restaurant chain)
The previous day included a stop at Grupo Modelo -- of the beer of the same name -- which uses Washington-grown hops.
Gregoire (or her staff) is also posting online updates.
