A Damn Fine Piece of Pie: Where to Eat...

This post was written before the COVID-19 outbreak, but I decided to let it run for Pi day as scheduled. In Seattle, we're eating our Pie on Pi Day at home in Seattle -- but when things pick back up these are some great places to go. Put them on your calendar for PIE day, which is January 23. Whether it's Pi Day (in March) or Pie Day (in January) you're likely to see a lot of posts about pie. But any day is a good day for Pie. So we're weighing in on our favorite go-to pie spots in Seattle and western Washington State.

In the Trees: Your PNW Treehouse Bucket List

We visited the Nelson Treehouse Company’s B&B Treehouse point, along with a couple of other in-the-tree locations (the Forest House, Free Spirit Spheres, and -- at least in spirit -- the treehouse at Doe Bay) in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s a lowdown on getting high (up in the trees at least) along with a listing of other treehouses in the PNW you can rent.

Outdoor Shakespeare (and other outdoor performances) Near Puget Sound

We love Shakespeare in the Park and other outdoor theater performances! Pack a picnic and a blanket and sit in the sun (or in some cases under the stars). While many performances have been canceled for 2021, some are resuming. Here are the ones of which we are currently aware.

Famous Seattle Graves (and Where to Find Them)

If celebrity burials are your thing, the number of Seattle's famous dead denizens does come close to rivaling many larger, and older, cities. But we do have a few here, and they're worth visiting if you like cemeteries. Here's more about where to find the graves of Bruce and Brandon Lee, Jimi Hendrix, and Chief Sealth (Seattle), along with a listing of a few others with a more local claim to fame.

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the Puget Sound Area. 2021-style.

While you might want to stay home and drink green beer with the spouse this St. Patrick's Day, there are some events -- virtual events, running races, and the like -- that are taking place in 2021. Here's our small but expanding list.

Snoqualmie Bike Ride: Remlinger and Back

I cycled this route years ago, and intended to write about it at that time. A few things may have changed since then, but it remains a good cycling route with a good stop at Remlinger Farms at the mid-point (when they reopen), This route is also my first go-round with adding route sharing capacity. If you have a route you'd like to share with readers, you can do it!
