BEER CAMP THIS FRIDAY

Looking for weekend plans? Beer Camp is calling your name. Presented by the Hop Growers of America, Sierra Nevada’s annual extravaganza (the country’s largest craft beer festival), hosts events in eight U.S. cities this month,  landing in Gas Works Park this Friday, June 30. The festive event welcomes more than 90 local and national breweries in addition to some of the city’s best food trucks, musicians and entertainers.

Main Street Drivers provides transportation service that has perfected the “your car + our driver” concept and can create a package for each and every client need. Their professional driver service launched in the Western Washington region earlier this year. The focus is on the greater Seattle area and suburbs, including popular wine destinations including Seattle Urban Wineries and Woodinville Wine Country. We recently had the opportunity to try out the service firsthand. 

Ready-made soups & smoothies packed w/ organic superfoods

Daily Harvest delivers pre-portioned, ready-to-blend smoothies, chia parfaits, overnight oats, and ready-to-heat soups to your freezer. They currently offer 17 flavor combinations that were co-created by a team of chefs and nutritionists. Everything on the menu comes packed with superfoods and organic fruits and vegetables with no added sugar or preservatives.

Pike Place Market’s second annual Wednesday Evening Farmers Market will kick off on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 giving downtown shoppers the opportunity to enjoy the long summer evenings while shopping for fresh produce and supporting local farmers. Along with the Evening Market, Pike Place Market will host four weekly farmers markets throughout downtown starting Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

Plan out music-filled days in Happy Valley, Oregon (and other enticing summertime happenings).

It’s no secret that we adore Pickathon—a magical weekend gathering on an Oregon farm that’s all about the discovery of phenomenal new artists in beautiful and unique spaces (think intimate barns and fantastical stages that blend into the surrounding woods). Great news for this year’s much-anticipated event (August 3 through 6): The day-by-day schedule is finally here! Check it out, and get planning.

Some of our favorite places in Vancouver. 

There is so much to explore in Vancouver’s many vibrant and diverse neighborhoods, including outdoor activities, walking the city, and delicious places to eat and drink. Here are some of our must-do’s when we visit Vancouver. The US Dollar is still strong, with $1USD = $1.37CAD so it can be an affordable weekend getaway. 

Q + A with Singer Katarina Gleicher 

FYOHNA is an electronic pop duo focused on achieving emotional warmth and expansive atmospheres through live performance and powerful, yet tender vocal presence. Since FYOHNA’s inception in the Spring of 2015, vocalist Katarina Gleicher and producer/multi instrumentalist Elliot Glasser maintain a mind towards absolute collaboration. We had the chance to chat with Katarina before their upcoming performance on Tuesday at Chop Suey.
