Another bright, shiny new innovation as we struggle towards transportation efficiency: Metro's gradual rollout of the new "RapidRide" bus system. Already zipping around on the east side and the south end, some Seattle neighborhoods will soon have this service (details below), and those neighborhoods will rejoice. Why?
On National Root Beer Float Day, I cannot help feeling a little bummed. Getting in the car to drive to A&W just isn’t going to cut it.
As far as I can tell, the nearest old-fashioned soda fountain is 260 miles away, at Lincoln County Pharmacy in Davenport, one of those sleepy towns on Highway 2.
When classic goodies like pie and cupcakes have become so retro cool, why hasn’t anybody seized on updating the soda fountain?
The weekend forecast calls for some Sangria! And guess who shared a recipe? The fabu Jamie Boudreau, da man mixing it up at comfy chic cocktail hangout, Canon (click through for location and map).
“This is a completely clear sangria that allows you to showcase beautiful seasonal fruit,” he said.
MUST HEARKEXP Concerts at the MuralPark your picnic blanket on the Seattle Center lawn for live and locally made tunes at this popular Friday-night concert series.

I may not be able to help you perfect that shuttlecock serve, but I am pretty proficient at picking the right drink for the right occasion. Here's five recipes to help make watching the Olympic games even greater.

Here I sit on the veranda at Glacier Park Lodge, watching the ever restless clouds dance along the spires and humps of Glacier National Park, the whole scene lit by the warm rays of the late afternoon “golden hour.” I can relate to those fast-moving clouds; in fact I feel like one of them as my two kids and I are in the middle of a 1,500 mile “school’s out” odyssey-by-van from Seattle into the wilds of Montana.
It’s getting so close, we can almost taste the etouffee.
Matthew Lewis – the spicy guy behind the Creole-riffic truck Where Ya At Matt – is on the verge of opening his new brick-and-mortar place in Fre-lingford.
Roux has been a work in progress since March, when a major renovation began of the old Buckaroo Tavern, just down the block from the ever-swamped Paseo.
Wooden O's mixing it up again this summer, this time stranding Shakespeare's shipwrecked twins Sebastian and Viola on a happenin', hipster spring-break island, complete with straggly palms, a motorboat and beach loungers. Not since their beloved 2006 production of Taming of the Shrew—set in a trailer park—has the company so embraced a re-setting, or allowed itself such leeway in goofing on the sacred Shakespearean script.
This sorta summerlike weather calls for a toast and this time of year, my glass is full of something pink. I love rosé, and Washington wineries make a bunch of really good ones.
