NYC folk-pop act Yoke Lore is joining FRENSHIP on the road and they have a stop in Seattle on May 6th for a show at The Crocodile. We had the opportunity to talk with multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and visual artist Adrian Galvin of Yoke Lore this week. Tickets are available here.
Convenient and simple breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert
Hungryroot is a subscription meal service boasting “healthy indulgent meals delivered to your doorstep”. I first heard about Hungryroot last year, but didn’t get around to trying it. It’s on the expensive side and I’m getting pretty tired of keeping up with my subscription food deliveries. Sometimes I forget to skip a week and get home to discover a meal kit delivery I didn’t want. I found a coupon for $30 off my first order that you can use too, which brought my total down to $39 for 3 meals (2 servings each), 4 sides, snacks, or sweets. I figured I’d give it a shot and share the experience.

We only dined at Naka once before it closed its doors in January. Maybe Seattle wasn’t ready for Naka’s fine dining kaiseki concept, offering 6, 10 and 15-course menu options. Nevertheless, we were pleased to hear that Chef Shota Nakajima reopened with a new concept in the same space as Adana. The food, the dining experience, and the service are still as high quality as before—with a more approachable and affordable menu.
Located just 80 miles from Seattle nestled amongst the Cascade Mountains, Suncadia is the perfect lovers escape this February with its ‘Sweetheart Saturdays’ events.

A winter wonderland getaway inspired by nature.
Leavenworth is a great destination year round, with outdoor water-based activities and hiking in the summer and snow and skiing adventures in the winter. There are festivals in the spring and fall and Leavenworth downtown is adorable during the holidays (like a real life gingerbread village). Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort is nestled on the banks of Icicle Creek, just outside Leavenworth. The resort offers a distinct Northwest experience accented by sustainable gourmet cuisine and cozy accommodations.
I had never taken a spin class before this. Something about it always intimidated me. I’ve halfheartedly biked at the gym for a few minutes a handful of times and I’m an occasional summer bike rider, but that’s it. I’d heard good things from multiple people about Flywheel for a while now. I even signed up for a class three years ago, but ended up ditching last minute. I never got around to going again until a few weeks ago. This is not a sponsored post—opinions are my own.
