It was 1974 when the first iteration of Seattle’s superstar soccer team, the Sounders, was founded.

And Seattle, out of all the places I have ever lived, is one of the most diverse, herbivore-friendly and easiest places to find not only viable, but absolutely tantalizing meatless options.

state fair, puyallup, washington state fair, way back when throwback thursday
"The Valley Fair" as it was formerly called started in the fall of 1900 as a means to help local agricultural and dairy farmers, miners, and manufacturers exhibit and sell their products in a community setting. The first fair took place on October 4th, 1900 and was only a three-day event. Admission for the whole event was just $1 per family! How times have changed.
