Chocolate lovers unite at the Northwest Chocolate Festival, an annual event dedicated not just to eating chocolate in its many forms, but to tracking its journey from cocoa bean to confection. Visitors hone their expertise through seminars on trade equity and cocoa farming, chocolate-making workshops led by confectioners, and tastings where palates learn to distinguish between milk chocolate and a chocolate bar clumsily forced inside a milk jug. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefits local nonprofits aligned with the festival?s mission. Recipients are announced yearly.
Rendezvous Restaurant and Lounge indulges hearty appetites with a menu of hand-formed burgers, creamy pastas, and sauces made in-house at a cozy, wood-paneled setting first opened in 1927. Swirls of sharp cheddar cheese sauce saturate al dente cavatappi in the restaurant's signature mac 'n' cheese plated with a barricade of onion straws, bacon, and tomato to prevent corkscrew-shaped pasta from sneaking behind the bar and opening wine bottles. Chefs garnish 1/3-pound burger patties with a splash of homemade chili, barbecue sauce, and a slice of cheddar cheese or reimagine traditional vegetable sandwiches with gourmet enhancements such as marinated zucchini, goat cheese, caramelized onions, and fresh spinach. A chicken cobb salad balances grilled chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, and crumbles of blue cheese and bacon atop the crisp leaves of its romaine foundation. This Groupon includes all available substitutions, so diners can replace fries with yam chips or decorate sandwiches with avocado, a slice of cheese, or edible top hat.
The name means "the intimate" in Swedish, and it's a name that fits. Whether it's a production of a American classic, a world masterpiece, or a bold new work, shows at the Intiman aim to close the gap between performer and audience for an immersive experience. Founded by Fulbright Scholar Margaret Booker in 1972, the Intiman Theatre has developed a reputation for excellence with its impeccable stagecraft and contributions to the community, even winning a 2006 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. And, serving as the crown jewel in a crown full of achievements, the Intiman was also the very first regional theater to stage a production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Angels in America saga.
