What better way to spend a late summer evening than cooling off in our lobby with a group of friends completing a jigsaw puzzle and sipping on a signature cocktail named in its honor? And not just any puzzle – a handcrafted wooden puzzle that can reach a $6,000 price tag. Here at the Willcox, we value our relationship with the Stave Puzzle Company and are in awe, as well as our guests, at the luxurious, unique, devilish fun they create. Here are a few fun facts about the puzzles and why you should come try to complete one, especially in August:
- Each wooden jigsaw puzzle is meticulously hand-cut, one piece at a time, by a skilled crafter in Vermont.
- No picture comes with the puzzles – just a little blue box filled with the pieces.
- Stave puzzle images range from Monet and Renoir paintings to 3D baseball stadiums and magical underwater ecosystems. We have 8 various puzzles available for guests on Sunday evenings.
The thought of sitting down, slowing down and kindling friendships over such a nostalgic pastime is something we’re passionate about. That’s why we’re offering a unique proposition: If you complete a Stave Puzzle here at The Willcox in our lobby on a Sunday night in August, you get to stay that night FOR FREE!
So grab a group of friends, we’ll whip up our Stave Puzzle cocktail complete with pineapple vodka, peach schnapps and Blue Curacao float (it stacks like a puzzle), and enjoy your night of puzzling! We hope you’ll be the lucky one to stay with us!
Don’t forget: To thank you for puzzling with Stave on your visit to The Willcox, Stave will send you a complimentary 20 piece puzzle of The Willcox when you complete their request for a catalog postcard. Ask us at the front desk how to take advantage of this incredible opportunity.
