Seattle Green Limo started with a love story. The love story of owner Kevin and his discovery of eco-friendly fuel made from vegetable oil with a totally biodegradable byproduct. Kevin was so enamored with the benefits of bio fuel that he refurbished or restocked his entire fleet, and now his vehicles cart around guests in the lap of luxury while reducing their carbon footprint by 80% or more and their actual footprints by 100%. His eco-loving party buses ferry up to 14 people to parties, wineries, or special occasions, and eco-sedans and eco-SUVs suit more personal jaunts, road trips, or green demolition derbies.
Located a five-minute shuttle ride from Spokane International Airport, Diamond Park’N Jet's secure airport parking lot provides a home away from home for travelers' vehicles. Free shuttles service the lot seven days a week, 24 hours a day, and a staff member is always on hand to load luggage and give each traveler their complimentary newspaper and refreshments. Onsite security ensures that autos are protected, and free touchless car washes shine every vehicle so that returning motorists don’t daydream about the rentals they drove while vacationing. In addition to protecting cars while owners are in the skies, the lot also operates a "We Care" program, with staffers offering prompt assistance in the event of flat tires, dead batteries, empty gas tanks, or accidentally locked doors.
For more than a century, Gray Line of Seattle has been helping visitors and natives alike peel back the nation's corner—the Pacific Northwest—with luxurious tours and charters. Each environmentally conscious service enables explorers to survey the region by land, by sea, or by a combination of both via double-decker bus routes and scenic cruises. Rub elbows with waterfalls, alpine meadows, and glacier-carved façades on an eight-hour adventure past Mount Rainier, or jet into Boeing’s hangars and investigate the future of aviation without having to endure the itchy wool socks required for time travel. In addition to its landmark-packed tours, Gray Line of Seattle totes travelers aboard its fleet of luxury motor coaches and charters.
In 1992, restaurant owner Carlos Kainz and chef Julie Guerrero first joined forces to open a tiny West Seattle bakery and café, a spot that quickly gained traction and outgrow its modest trappings. The duo packed up the winning operation and moved on to a larger space and a larger vision, renaming their venture Dulces Bistro & Wine and crafting an ambitious menu focusing entirely on Latin-fusion cuisine for dinner. Although Guerrero traces her family heritage back to Mexico, many of her dishes, including paella valenciana and boeuf bourguignon, show strong European influences. Unadulterated Latin staples pepper the menu, such as the green chicken enchiladas that serve as a staple in Mexico City and at Sam I Am’s Cinco de Mayo parties.
Alfred can accommodate up to 20 guests at a time with his cushy seats, fully stocked bar, and multiple TVs. He would be the life of most house parties, if he could only fit through the front door. Alfred is a super-stretch Hummer limousine, and the newest addition to the Cordial Limousine family. Though Alfred is Cordial Limousine’s pride and joy, the company also offers plenty of other options for those looking to cruise around town in style. Krystal and Bruce, for example, are stretch limos with space for 12 and 14 passengers, respectively, and Jasmine, Lucy, and Ninja each fit six inside their classy interiors.
Beyond limousines, Cordial’s fleet also includes BMW, Lincoln, and Land Rover town cars and SUVs, each ideal for impressing business associates or gaining instant respect at fast-food drive-thrus. Cordial Limousine dispatches its professional drivers to locations across the city through appointments made in advance, as well as last-minute requests.
On 10 a.m. on the first day of 2013, City Park's Great Lawn will fill with people ready to start the year off not with a resolution, but a commitment—a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. They'll run, walk, or jay-walk through the park and Marconi Drive on the flat, fast course, which it circles back to the Great Lawn where they started. After the race, runners can stick around for a post-race party to celebrate a successful first morning of the New Year.
In more than 30 cities across the nation, other runners will be participating in similar events as part of a movement that aims to stymie the rising rates of obesity and inaction in the United States.
