Calle Tacos & Tequila's menu describes itself as casually evolved Mexican food. The eatery's cooks don't try to reinvent the wheel, but rather add tasty twists to popular dishes. They spice up ceviche with mango, onion, cucumber, and serrano peppers, whose intense flavors surround Atlantic cod. They revolutionize familiar burritos simply by serving them wet, topping them with a layer of red-pepper sauce and sending them to tables by pushing them down a slip 'n' slide. The same philosophy behind the food extends to the drinks. For example, the signature Callerita combines pure agave tequila with agave nectar and lime juice for a simple, three-ingredient interpretation of the classic drink.

Stretching across Skagit Valley since 1875, Lenning Farms has seen countless oats, grains, vegetables, and fruit grown and harvested on its land throughout five generations of hard work. The farm’s current operators, Todd and Bev Lenning, erected The Berry Barn more than 10 years ago to house their berry-related goods, then a new endeavor for the farm. The pair stocks the big red barn with dozens of varieties of fresh-picked berries—from strawberries to gooseberries to blueberries—14 types of fresh-baked pies, hand-dipped ice cream, and handmade gifts. To challenge and entertain their visitors, Todd and Bev constructed their mind-exercising hedge maze, which has grown to be one of the largest in North America, where customers search for different stations featuring facts about berries and Lenning Farms. Lenning Farms also has a rope maze available for younger guests.
