Fairmont Olympic and Sun Liquor Unveil New Olympic Honey Vodka
The Fairmont Olympic hosted their annual Bee Olympic Celebration, which began on the rooftop with a honey bee introduction from master beekeeper and Executive Chef Paul Shewchuk.

Sawyer opened earlier this month in the old Kickin’ Boot location in Ballard serving casual, chic new American fare.
