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. We knew we were in for a special night when an intimate group of us gathered in the typically off-limits rooftop space to learn about how Chef Shewchuk and his team are incorporating this honey into the food, drinks and desserts they create.

Living in the PNW sure has its charms, and access to lovely local wines and brews is one of them. With fall on the horizon, I find myself clinging on to the final weeks of summer with lots of outdoor excursions (with the zoo being a favorite!) and refreshing drinks. August is also Washington State wine month, so there are huge wine discounts and fun events that you can check out here.

Here are some of our recommendations for soaking up the rest of the summer. 

Sawyer opened earlier this month in the old Kickin’ Boot location in Ballard serving casual, chic new American fare. Drawing inspiration from Chef Mitch Mayers’ fine dining background and childhood memories at the state fair, he has created a menu that features items including bone marrow matzo ball soup with a pho broth, oxtail nachos, and animal style burger.
