Seattle: The Game is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. Players may explore one or all of the game's three zones, sampling fresh fruit at stalls in Pike Place Market, admiring monuments in historic Pioneer Square, or frowning at all of the Mark Rothko paintings at the Seattle Art Museum. Clues point the way to culinary delights such as Seattle's first bar and flagship Starbucks, and indulge eyes and ears in a chamber filled with porcelain and a record shop frequented by Santana and Eric Clapton. At least one player on the team will need a US cell phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most zones take two–three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aqua-centric scrapbooks. From the time of activation, Venti Packages give players a year to chase through all three tours.
Spotting a double-decker bus outside of London is a rare treat. It's a treat Double Decker PDX founders Brooks Thompson and Kent Metcalf wanted to share with their fellow Rose City residents, which is why they brought a cherry red double-decker bus over from London. Rather than keep it on stationary display, they renovated it and transformed it into a venue on wheels complete with refrigerators, an oak bar, and a stereo system. Now, the double-decker bus transports revelers on pub crawls, to weddings, or to tastings at local wineries, in addition to other special events.

One of Oregon’s largest scooter dealers, Classic Scooter & Cycle populates its 10,000-square-foot showroom with many motorized flavors of two-wheeled transport, from retro-styled Vespas to tricked-out Ural Sidecars. The Sym Fiddle II 125cc dares daily errands to evade its sleek, retro silhouette and 59 mph top speeds, ingratiating itself to wardrobes by color-matching riders’ eyes with a choice of dazzling red, jade green, or marshmallow-white hues. Twin tanks totaling 3.42 unleaded gallons fuel excursions up to 362 miles before the rider must stop for a pull on the gas pump, and an automatic transmission and maximum 8.38 horsepower puts Paul Revere’s 1.0-horsepower manual steed to shame.
