When you're a student low on cash (and who isn't), finding entertainment beyond the beer bash in the dorm (or frat) can be challenging. In my student days, I found that a great way to get beyond the party culture was to visit the UW theater culture as it played out in the University's theaters. Now one of them, the Jones Playhouse, is having a grand reopening celebration to mark a recently-completed $10 millon renovation. The theater, once a tile factory and then remodeled as a theater in the 1930s, opens the season on October 25 with The Tempest.

Falling leaves, pashminas and pumpkins, oh my! Where did September go? All of the sudden people are layering and drinking Pumpkin lattes and I haven't even committed to a pair of fall boots.

Earlier this week, I popped into Plum Vegan Bistro on Capitol Hill at a press event to sample chef Makini Howell vegan southern-inspired offerings. Platters of quinoa sliders, Mac n Yease (vegan mac n cheese), and grilled teriyaki tofu kabobs with garlic and ginger mashed yams disappeared as the mostly-carnivorous crowd huddled in small groups, discussing the food.

I've been getting a lot of questions about what the people are like that work out at David Barton. I don't know if you've heard but, apparently, Bellevue has a reputation for being a bit...snooty? I can tell you honestly that after living in L.A. for the last few years and working out there (occasionally...) I was way more intimidated walking into a gym there than I ever have been in Bellevue. Of course you'll see the occasional massive body builder, or someone who just tried out for Cirque De Soleil - one handed, headstand push-ups, anyone?

The rumors are true: Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour is one blunt lady. Last night, I snuck out to the Seattle premier of RJ Cutler’s fascinating documentary about the woman behind the biggest fashion magazine in the world, The September Issue. In short, it’s fascinating to watch the creative process behind Vogue’s biggest issue of the year, how they decide what trends to feature, the amazingly-produced photo shoots and waiting to see what Wintour will like and what she just hates.

Professional photographers look out -- a new iPhone app makes editing and sharing photos easier than ever “What good is a picture if you don’t share it?” asks Chase Jarvis, a Seattle-based photographer. We at Seattle mag agree. Which is why every Wednesday we'll be featuring a photo of the week here on our Scoop blog.

You know how when you say a word over and over again, it starts to sound foreign and kind of loses its meaning? After completing week one of my training, I need a new word for "sore." I also need help walking up and down stairs and lifting my arms above my shoulders. I’m in pain here, people. I’m not gonna lie, week one was not easy. So, to recap…..  Things I hate: lunges, interval sprinting on a treadmill, lunges, and the plank. Also, lunges. Did I mention those?

It’s that time of year when our lives are flooded with charity requests. There are walks, runs, drives, dinners – the list is endless. And we’ve had a tough enough year on our own, thank you very much. So how do we decide where to spend our time, money and energy? Here’s what I’m doing: Walking for Ally Warnke. Ally, 10, loves cheerleading and golf. She’s the daughter of one of my co-workers and everyone who meets her falls instantly in love. I never would have guessed she has a heart disease.

I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, bouncing around the house, yelling, “It’s here! It’s here!” But instead of a jolly red-suited man bringing me toys, The Bellevue Collection has given me a big, giant fashion-forward present wrapped in shiny design gazing and glitzy documentary watching: Bellevue Fashion Week.
