I don’t need to try to convince you to shop consignment. Either you do or you don’t. Personally, I love it, mostly because I can get high-quality goods for less money and currently I’m in a more-is-more phase of wardrobe building. Which is why I’m excited to check out Mary-Bridget Pehl’s online consignment shop, MB’s Finds, and shop her upcoming pop-up on June 7 and 8 (at 1930 First Ave., right next to Baby & Co., like her Facebook page for more details).
Back in January, we wrote a story about Dr. Mary-Claire King, the pioneering Seattle geneticist who discovered the breast cancer gene, a groundbreaking finding that garnered some serious Hollywood attention. King is the subject of the new movie, Decoding Annie Parker, a Steven Bernstein film starring actress Helen Hunt as King and Samantha Morton as cancer-stricken Annie Parker.
Must DrinkRevelry on Red MountainHead east for a wine-drinking adventure at the Col Solare Winery atop Red Mountain. This fifth annual tasting event will feature the latest wine releases from 24 Washington winemakers, plus bites and spectacular panoramic views of the valley below the winery.
Cruises of all kinds scare me: Caribbean cruises, Mediterranean cruises, European cruises, Tom and Suri Cruise. I did a quick search on Carnival Cruise Lines' website and found you can take a "Cruise to Nowhere" for a mere $329. To nowhere. Sorry, but that sounds just plain terrifying.
When my dad had cancer eleven years ago, Gilda’s Club was there for him and that support made him happy. It was that simple. When we were there, he was happy, and that was all that mattered, so I’m forever grateful to this organization for that and those memories and like to do whatever I can to support them.
Gary Manuel salons have been beautifying the people of Seattle since 1979 and on May 30, you’re invited to check out their newest Studio concept space, in South Lake Union, on Thursday, May 30 at 6 p.m. for their grand opening and Earth Month celebration.
With the long weekend almost upon us, we’re thinking it’s time to party! However, having a party isn’t much fun if you spend its entirety as the most stressed out host or hostess in the world. Luckily, serving good drinks for a big group isn’t hard.
Next month's TEDxSeattle Talk is centered around the theme Degrees of Impact and will feature a slew of speakers who will discuss and share ideas on personal, community and global influence. Most notably, Matika Wilbur, photographer and founder of Project 562 (and subject of an extensive profile in our June 2013 issue), is slated to speak at the event.
If you are a middle school girl, the Seattle Rainmakers' home game in West Seattle was the place to be last weekend, seeing as the Mother’s Day crowd was made up primarily of middle school boys. It’s not a surprising fan base for Seattle’s first Major League Ultimate (MLU) team considering the growing popularity of the sport at the youth level and the fact that many of the Rainmakers themselves coach at schools throughout the city.
You just never know who you’ll bump into at the massive Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, the 36th annual food-focused event held last weekend on a mile-long stretch of the Mississippi. This heated competition is also known as the Super Bowl of Swine and calling it EPIC would be an gross understatement.
It’s true: There are few things that could motivate a Seattleite to leave her cozy apartment in the U District at 5 p.m. on a Friday evening, hop onto the glorified parking lot that is I-5 at that hour and head for Puyallup.
Last weekend, however, I did just that—and I did it for Bigfoot.
We're in a familiar spring lull. Seems this time every year there's a short stretch of anticipatory time just before several restaurants open, in time for high summer. This year there are several worth watching for, including a major Tom Douglas project and a hidden Ballard spot from Renee Erickson. Here's what you need to know.
Goat is No. 1, the world’s most consumed red meat, eaten by 70 percent of the planet’s population. And yet, it’s tough to find it on menus in the U.S.
Now, don’t give me that malarkey about goats are too cute to eat. (What about Porky Pig? Yes, those bacon makers are soooey adorable. And on and on about all sorts of animals we routinely find on our plates.)
No, I think the real rub against eating goat is that it’s challenging to cook. It’s extremely lean and it can taste… well… goat-y.
We reported last week about the gratis sneak peek of "Heart Beats," the new video from Seattle’s beloved indie-folk/chamber-pop/just-plain-endearing band Hey Marseilles. Our staff photographer Hayley Young wrote and directed the video. If you missed the preview, "Heart Beats" is up. Watch it here.
