For more than a century, Woodland Park Zoo's 92 acres of exhibits have provided an urban oasis replete with nearly 1,100 individual animals, representing almost 300 species and 75 animal vocations, such as jaguar dentist. Ooh and ahh your way through more than a dozen exhibits representing the exotic wilds of Australia, Africa, and Bug World. Should the sight of the king of the jungle paralyze you with fear, visit the golden lion tamarin, an endangered Brazilian primate that was hunted for its fur by hopelessly misinformed gold prospectors. Debate the appropriate classification of the red panda (aka the firefox), or marvel at the soaring majesty and silly names of the Hottentot teal, bufflehead duck, and Temminick's tragopan. The diverse array of flora and fauna ensures that every art lover will uncover a masterpiece within Mother Nature's gallery.
In 2003, Shaina Traisman taught her first yoga class in Seattle’s downtown jail. The students' blossoming interest in the class and the facility’s obvious need touched Shaina. So two years later, she founded Yoga Behind Bars to reach as many students as possible and helped increase the number of teachers involved. Every week, 35 volunteer instructors teach yoga poses, breath work, philosophy, and meditation exercises to more than 150 men, women, and children at correctional facilities across the region as a form of therapy and rehabilitation. The yoga classes are designed to grant the students inner freedom and help them overcome their stressors and destructive behavioral patterns for when they reenter society.

Amy Grant, author of No. 1 hits such as “El Shaddai” and “Baby Baby,” has shared her gift of song for more than 30 years, selling more than 30 million albums, garnering six Grammys, and earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Michael W. Smith has earned countless accolades with his tremendous songbook of head-bobbing hymns and choir-rousing hits. Sharing the stage for the first time in two decades, Amy and Michael thrill fans with new psalms and favorites from their sonic scroll, merging their sets with joyful duets and chemistry that crackles like Abbott and Costello after getting struck by lightning.
The servers at Kate's Pub tap a dozen draft brews to accompany delectable pub offerings in a cozy, neighborhood bar that hosts live music and acclaimed trivia nights. Guests can peruse the menu to unearth starters ranging from traditional honey-barbecue wings ($9) to homemade hummus platters ($10), and sandwich architects can pile build-a-burgers high with unlimited toppings, including fried eggs, before devouring their creations during games of edible Jenga ($10). The kitchen's grub wizards also crown mac 'n' cheese with barbecue pulled pork ($11) and ensconce flaky fish in a tortilla's nurturing embrace. Bottled brews include domestic, imported, and intergalactic sips alike, and the draft selection quenches macrothirsts with microbrews such as Manny's Pale Ale from Georgetown Brewing Company and Deschutes Brewery's Black Butte porter.
Behind the bar at Leny's place, suds from big labels and microbreweries flow from the taps amidst the jocular sounds of sports games and tunes from the jukebox. Diners can share nibbles of hot wings or fried pickles with their beers, or pick something meatier from the kitchen, including sandwiches and burgers. Wild Alaskan cod in an ale batter appears on plates of fish and chips, and a Cajun chicken sandwich boasts tender poultry marinated in a house-made chipotle sauce. Six-ounce hand-formed burgers arrive covered in thick-smoked bacon and cheddar on a bed of fries or tater tots. Patrons can sizzle brain cells when showing off their knowledge at regular trivia nights, while physical competition flourishes over two pool tables, two dartboards, and one gladiator pit.
