When Jeremy Brown's wife was expecting her second child, the couple realized their small house wasn't going to fit a family of four. Upon moving to a 5-acre fixer upper outside Battle Ground, the pair raised their kids as Jeremy nurtured another project: using those acres to create his own winery.
Since starting with his quaint, Tuscan-inspired tasting room, Jeremy has expanded his grounds to include several large patios and a wood-fired oven in the kitchen, where chefs prepare pizzas and small plates. Live musicians grace Rusty Grape Vineyard's stage Wednesday–Saturday, adding soothing tunes that complement the tasting room's draft beers and rotating selection of wine by the glass and bottle. Available pours might include a 2011 riesling or a complex red wine whose hints of cranberry give way to an oatmeal-cookie finish.
Within its recently renovated and refurbished walls, 3 Monkeys Pub & Grill spotlights a menu of hearty sandwiches and appetizers to accessorize frosty beers and TV screens glowing with athletic action. Shareable appetizers kick off chew-a-thons and include the Monster chicken strips, which chefs source from Oklahoma's infamous 100-foot-tall roaster and buddy up with a side of ranch or barbecue sauce ($4.75). The Porky Monkey steak sandwich transfixes stomachs with piles of flame-broiled sirloin, vegetables, and bacon perched atop a warm pub roll ($7.75). While watching a game on one of the eatery's nine TVs or its huge projector, guests can gulp down frothy glasses of Hamm's, Rainer, and Pabst Blue Ribbon ($2 each), or challenge the bar's mixologists to concoct cocktails from a huge range of liquors and mixers ($6+). Visitors can lounge on the outdoor patio year-round courtesy of heating units and 3 Monkey's seasonal contract with the Sun.
It would be hard to find someone in Vancouver who can imagine the city without Kiggins Theatre. Its iconic neon sign has stood outside 1011 Main Street since 1936, with bold white letters spelling out the name Kiggins. That moniker comes from original owner and former Vancouver mayor J.P. Kiggins, who first envisioned the art-deco theater and its grand auditorium. Today, the single-screen auditorium still flickers to life with a carefully chosen selection of independent, classic, and art-house films. Kiggins Theatre has also expanded to host trivia nights and screenings of popular TV shows, as well as serving as a venue for poetry readings and other performances.
Kiggins's future hasn't always been certain, however. Most recently, the theater's sustainability came into question when major distributors decided to stop releasing 35mm prints. But the theater and its loyal community rallied. Kiggins launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new digital projector and sound system. When the campaign closed on Aug 26, 2013, the theater had raised $92,830—more than enough to buy a ticket into the digital age and keep the large marquee filled for years to come.

Executive chef Faith Fiske tops The Atrium Lounge's more than 10 specialty pizzas with both ingredients from classic pepperoni to more unorthodox sunflower seeds. A create-your-own option, nicknamed The Einstein, lets guests craft their own pie from the same 25 sauces, cheeses, meats, and veggies Albert used to write out the theory of relativity on the back of a calzone. Barkeeps complement each slice by mixing signature cocktails from liquors such as Stoli Vanil, blue curacao, and Bombay Sapphire gin. Until 2 a.m. every Monday–Saturday, the lounge keeps the party going with open mic nights, karaoke, live music, and DJs spinning tunes.
This classic-rock-themed restaurant and bar––outfitted with neon signs, checkered buses, and guitar-playing skeletons––serves up a menu sizzling with the seductive whispers of more than 20 varieties of wood-fired pizza. Stained glass windows and a marginally creepy stuffed crow overlook diners as they gorge on burgers, calzones, or pizzas, such as the Bat Outta Hell, a fiery concoction layered with an herb cream-cheese spread, hot cherry peppers, spinach, chicken, roasted pecans, and Cajun spice. The Wild Child, a doughy saucer eclipsed with garlic butter, mozzarella, blue cheese, and sautéed spinach, silences the nags of square stomachs. A kids' menu allows amateur earthlings to munch on meals such as a peanut-butter-and-jelly pizza, while adults sample the 18 signature cocktails and six beers on tap, including the Rock Steady Red, The Rock's signature microbrew with four different caramel malts and Tettnanger hops.
