With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as Peach Perfection and Strawberry Whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including Peanut Butter Moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate. The lunch hour presents toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.

In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative fights childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

There are bowling alleys where you can go and just bowl. And then there's ACME Bowl—a 51,000-square-foot facility that contains two alleys, as well as an arcade, billiards room, two shuffleboard tables, multiple dining areas, and a bar—where you can do more, and often simultaneously. At any of The Alley's 30 glittering lanes, for example, you can have food delivered lane-side from the on-site restaurant, The Break Room. The Break Room's lineup of Big Lebowski nachos, sweet chili Thai pizzas, and lavish burgers gives your non-bowling hand something to do besides write a condolence card for the pins' family.

Private parties, meanwhile, can settle in away from the crowd at Seven10, a private lounge with 10 lanes flanked by leather couches and 150" projection screens. Smaller HD screens are mounted above nine-foot Brunswick pool tables at Q Billiards, broadcasting everything from NBA to World Cup games. The entire family-friendly venue is non-smoking.

At Bison Creek Pizza & Pub, the past meets the present in both food and décor. Located inside the historic Burien Theatre, the pizzeria serves its gourmet pies from a modern kitchen, but it pours mixed drinks from the theater's original saloon-like bar. A stage has replaced the screen, and free live shows blare music across the expansive room regularly. Bison Creek's menu exemplifies the same juxtaposition of tradition and change, boasting specialty pizzas that it's served since opening in 1975, now with modern twists such as gluten-free crusts, soy cheese, and invisible slices.

Customers can build their own pizza, but the pub is known for its gourmet options such as the 6th Gear—a pizza piled high with chicken, bacon, and artichoke hearts simmering garlic cream sauce with onions and garlic. The menu has expanded as well. Grinder sandwiches filled with tender pulled pork or heaps of salami, bacon, and pepperoni come with a pile of fries, and the kitchen produces pasta dinners with homemade sauces such marinara, alfredo, or pesto cream.

Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub boasts a full menu of eclectic pub fare for lunch and dinner daily. Appetizers range from the elegance of steamed local clams ($8.99 for a half pound, $14.99 for a pound) in a white-wine, garlic, and butter sauce to the potato decadence of seasoned fries ($4.99) baked under a blanket of cheddar cheese and topped with sour cream and green onions. Empty-handed post-auction attendees can make a taste-bud bid on the hearty selection of handheld sandwiches, such as the french dip with a rosemary-shallot au jus ($9.99), whereas the eatery’s Irish specialties promise to make eyes, noses, and mouths smile. Summon a serving of the corned beef and cabbage ($9.99–$11.99) or the slow-cooked Guinness beef stew ($8.99–$10.99) to satisfy a Leopold Bloom–esque appetite, or indulge in the apple-brandy pork chops ($15.99) or spicy prawn penne ($14.99). For guests allergic to the moon, Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub serves up a bounty of brunch bites on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon.

At The Scotch and Vine, owners David and Jill Pritchard blend upscale, artisan American cuisine, fine wines and scotches, and local, seasonal cuisine. The staff pours libations from more than 210 single malts, blends, bourbons, and ryes, as well as from a wine list that earned an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator. With that deep selection to work from, friendly, knowledgeable tenders help diners pair their dinners with the ideal wine, craft beer, or whiskey. In the kitchen, meanwhile, expert chefs sizzle hearty elk burgers, juicy sirloin steaks, tender seared chicken, and roasted beet salads. This cuisine helped Scotch and Vine earn a spot on King5 Best of Western Washington's 2013 list of the area's five Best New American restaurants.

The strains of Spanish guitar and live blues bands form a classy soundtrack to wine tastings or seminars on Scotch-crafting, while plates of fine cheese from regional farms complement the flavors of smoky spirits, frosty brews, and rich red wine. The bistro's cushy leather booths, accents, and soft lighting evoke the image of a grandfather's cozy study or a precocious 6-year old’s tree fort.

Within the century-old confines of Uptown Glassworks' warehouse, furnaces melt handfuls of kaleidoscopic frit into malleable shapes manipulated by a team of professional glass blowers. But these tradesmen don't just create works for the gallery; they also share their secrets with students in a variety of activities, from introductory courses on making beads and paperweights to advanced instruction that can be applied toward college credit or used to fix the pockmarked walls of glass houses.

During the shop's Blow-Your-Own sessions, participants apply color to clear, molten glass that has recently emerged from a 2,000-degree furnace, then blow their mixture into 1 of 20 different shapes. The next day, patrons can pick up their cooled and packaged creations, comparing their handiwork to the gallery's collection of products, which are made by more than 90 local and regional glass artists.
