The 14th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival (GPBF) is quickly becoming one of the first signs of the fall season for many Seattleites. Supported by Elysian Brewing and hosted at the Seattle Center, this two-day pumpkin-packed event quickly sold out, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Elysian kicks off fall with two pumpkin-centric annual events.
Three weekends left to enjoy river floating in Leavenworth.
I’m sure I’ll look back on this in February and want to kick myself, but I am over the relentless summer heat and blue skies. The nonstop sun has me seeking shade and avoiding going out. Feeling like a summer scrooge, I knew I needed to find an outdoor activity that involved access to water, which is why I jumped on the opportunity to join Sound Excursions for one of their Leavenworth river tubing getaways.
After scouring the country for the next spot to bring their wildly successful ATK EATS festival, a celebration of cooking, food and wine, America’s Test Kitchen picked Seattle.
On June 30th, Elysian brewing hosted their second annual Search Party at Seattle Center. The party is a celebration of music, beer, and community in Seattle. 100% of the proceeds go to The Vera Project, an all-ages, volunteer-fueled music and arts venue at Seattle Center.
I’m always on the lookout for the best patio in Seattle. While I tend to avoid hotel restaurants—a somewhat unfounded bias I can’t seem to drop—I had to check out the new lakefront kitchen and bar boasting the best Lake Washington waterfront dining and cocktails.
While I’ve had plenty of good PNW-inspired fare in Seattle, including top-notch wine offerings, my recent dinner at Agrodolce was really special. From the outstanding entree options to the welcoming and knowledgeable staff and the exquisite wine, Agrodolce stands out.
It officially feels like summer has hit the PNW and what better way to celebrate than happy hour on a patio? Answer: Two for one happy hour on the patio at Mama’s Cantina in Belltown.
Bring your lunch to Capitol Hill’s Cal Anderson Park on May 30th to hang out with Seattle’s cutest, furriest residents at Pets in the Park.
