Flower Shows Bound to Brighten Winter Weekends

A friend in North Carolina recently shared, via social media, a picture of daffodil shoots emerging in his yard. It will be weeks before those shoots mature into blooms, but their presence is encouraging. This time of year can be hard. The cheery brightness of the holiday season is past, and, for many, the worst winter weather is upon us (or threatening). Sure, warmer climates offer a respite, but the difficulty and expense of reaching a sunny, warm locale may prove prohibitive. read more »

Seattle Center Steps Up as Dining Destination

With so much to do at the Seattle Center, it’s hard to think about cramming in time for lunch.

Taste Seattle: Off the Eaten track

Seattle begins at Pioneer Square, the historic heart of the city’s original downtown. Rebuilt after a catastrophic fire in the late 1880s, this neighborhood of Richardsonian Romanesque style enjoyed a turn as Seattle’s “it” scene before deteriorating into the city’s “skid road.” A brief revival largely fueled by artists took place in the 1980s and early ’90s. Once home to the storied Elliott Bay Book Company, the area again lost a bit of favor with both residents and tourists at the end of the 20th century, when suddenly trendier districts such as Belltown and Capitol Hill started to attract more attention. For a few years, jury duty seemed to be the only reason anyone would visit. read more »
