A taste of Northwest Brewing Company's beers is akin to a trip around the world. The brewery, formerly Trade Route Brewing Company, finds inspiration in the trade routes of old, which is why its brewmasters incorporate exotic ingredients such as ginger and palm sugar when crafting each batch with time-honored brewing methods. These eclectic flavors beget distinctive beers, such as the Mango Weizen, which stirs taste buds with Saaz hops and mango puree, and the Midnight ale, which splashes chocolate, crystal, and pale malts with two types of hops to create a dark brew that pairs well with spicy food and glow-in-the-dark steaks. Not content to keep their flavors in liquid form, Northwest Brewing Company also slings a menu of gastropub cuisine?including gourmet pizzas and cheese-slathered pasta dishes? backed by live music every Saturday night.

The KUBE 93 Summer Jam brings together some of the biggest names in rap and hip-hop for an all-day festival of music and entertainment. With a star-studded lineup including Ludacris, Pitbull, T-Pain, B.o.B, New Boyz, Jeremih, and Big K.R.I.T., the festival exposes fans to numerous well-known acts without the scheduling hassles and food-allergy concerns of inviting them all to a dinner party. Although concessions are not included with this Groupon, two beer gardens offer refreshing tipples to guests 21 and older. The covered pavilion space helps provide shelter from the elements, keeping heads dry during rain, cool under the sun, and slime-free during showers of frogs.
Upon returning from the battlefields of Korea, George Shin sought a way to maintain fitness and discipline in his life. He then discovered Isshinryu, a style of karate he still practices and teaches to this day, despite nearing his 90th birthday. For more than 40 years, those classes have been part of Washington Isshinryu Society, where George captains a squad of black-belt instructors each with 10+ years of training. Together, they teach students the fundamentals of the discipline, from proper stances to masterfully executed kicks. They also lead rebounding exercises, wherein pupils hop on mini-trampolines to gain muscle tone.
Since its founding in 1997, Auburn Gymnastics has grown to an enrollment of more than 800 students who flip and spring on competitive teams, learn basic skills in just-for-fun classes, and tumble through obstacle courses during birthday parties. Auburn's alums include state, regional, and national champions, as well as two members of the Junior Olympic National team. But less competitive students are welcome as well, especially during the gym's open-play sessions, when preschool-aged kids and older can burn through excess energy and practice their skills on the gymnastics equipment.
