The saying goes that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are wineries, for that matter. That’s why though Scatter Creek Winery just passed its eighth birthday, its history stretches back many years before that, when husband and wife team Terril and Andrea Keary began cultivating the vines, recipes, and skills needed to create their unique wine blends.
Their hard work has paid off—their wines have racked up 10 medals and awards from local news outlets and festivals, most falling upon the glasses of Valley de Bon Blanco for the gewurztraminer’s dry flavor and elderberry notes. During tasting sessions, guests can sample the award winners and others, such as the spicy yet fruity Creekside Rossa pinot noir and the Glaciers End ice wine.
In the gift shop, guests can pick up bottles emblazoned with artwork from local artist Leslie Kilbourne or pick up supplies to brew their own beer or wine at home, ensuring that they no longer have to wait until their juice boxes ferment.

While Menchie's private-label frozen yogurt flavors populates more than 400 shops throughout the world, the locally family owned Seattle, Olympia and Green Lake locations are a family affair. Inspired by their daughters' love of frozen yogurt, the franchisee now welcome guests from across the region to try their hands at do-it-yourself desserts. All three stores feature the same self-serve setup. Inside a simple bowl or a waffle cone, guests can start construction of their own dessert or a fast-melting statue of themselves by choosing from 14 rotating flavors pulled from roster of more than 100 possibilities. Creations then move to a toppings bar, where more than 55 edible adornments including fresh fruits, candies such as popping boba and mochi, and warm syrups await. Along with classic fro-yo flavors such as cookies 'n' cream and chocolate, guests can also add a tangy bite to desserts with sorbets in flavors such as pineapple Dole whip and pink lemonade. Menchie's team also caters to a host of dietary needs, offering non-fat, low-fat, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, Kosher, and no-sugar-added options.

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU.
