Two Green Lake Gems Make For the Perfect Date Night

Here’s a question – when you go out for a nice dinner, do you stay in Green Lake or go to other parts of the city? When my husband and I go out for dinner, without our kiddos in tow, we often leave Green Lake. I don’t know if it has to do with leaving […]

Our dumb luck: twice this week our cars were […]

Seattle Public Theater’s Holiday Lineup

I have an embarrassing confession. I have never been to a show at Seattle Public Theater. It is walking distance from my house. I know, I know. I can use my excuse of having two little kiddos, but honestly there really is no excuse. I am fixing that in a few weeks by going to […]

Green Lake, Meet Eight Row

Weeks before Eight Row opened its doors I passed the restaurant and saw the culinary team huddled around a table training the staff about each of the dishes they were bringing out of the kitchen. The crew looked more like a bunch of friends than a labor force. You could tell they liked what they […]
