Outdoors: Consider Rediscovering Discovery Park

By: 
Roddy Scheer
A view of Puget Sound from Discovery Park

If you haven't yet had the pleasure of touring Discovery Park in Magnolia, join a Seattle Park's docent on a 3.5 mile walk there this coming Wednesday morning from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. (ages 18+ only). Plan on some slight elevation gain and, given that this is Seattle, be prepared for mud and rain. Part of the hike will be done in silence so participants can listen for the sounds of the season. While the hike is free, pre-registration is required by calling the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center at 206.386.4236.

Fashion + Style Friday: Spring makeup trends, flirty rain boots and one last hoorah for Oslo’s

Out of Line welcomes spring in decidely Northwest style

I will get up early on Saturday mornings—but it had better be for a darn good reason (because otherwise, sleep, reading the paper and drinking approximately 5 cups of coffee is the name of the game). However, it is well worth my time—and yours too—to get up early, grab that latte to go and get down to the downtown Nordstrom tomorrow for their Spring 2011 Cosmetics Trend Show. Starting bright and early at 8 a.m., Nordstrom experts will preview new spring colors and share makeup tips at the 2-hour long event. Read more »

First Thursday art walk:
Joey Veltkamp
Thursday (3/3) -

By: 
Roddy Scheer

If you're climbing the walls in your house with all the bad weather this winter, maybe you should check out one of Seattle's indoor rock climbing gyms. Vertical World (daily rate for non-members: $16; monthly membership: $70) started it all off when it opened the doors on the world's first indoor climbing gym in Ballard back in 1987. These days the company has gyms in five locations around Puget Sound. Read more »

By: 
Langdon Cook

I'm thrilled to announce that Fat of the Land author Langdon Cook is our newest columnist at the magazine.

 Lang, as he's known by friends, is the kind of guy that, when he says he'll be "off the grid," really means it; he's known to disappear down the coast and up to the wilds of British Columbia for weeks at a time on foraging, fishing and mushroom hunting expeditions. Read more »
