As dusk settles in every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, vegetables start appearing all over Seattle. A team of locals stealthily drops off fruits and vegetables swaddled in handmade cedar boxes on customers' doorsteps like baby storks. The following morning, with work complete, the team retires as the city's residents wake to the sound of locally grown, organic radishes, potatoes, and nectarines mewling at their doorsteps.
Subscribers to Pacific Coast Harvest's fruit and vegetable plans get produce deliveries at regular intervals. The benefit is mutual—as customers bite into crisp lettuce and juicy oranges, their subscriptions support local farms and fund their investment in sustainable practices.
At Pre-Dating's speed-dating events up to 24 mingle-ready singles and hopeless romantics converge for a gender-balanced evening of abbreviated rendezvous and private duologues. Focusing especially on the needs of busy professionals, Pre-Dating's events are always split evenly between men and women attendees, ensuring a balanced, one-to-one ratio for dates and spirited bouts of Red Rover. During the two-hour verbal waltz, daters chat with individual counterparts for six minutes at a time. Then, at the end of the event, guests complete and turn in a score sheet that divides potential suitors from the rest. After reviewing the score sheets, Pre-Dating will supply each attendee with the email addresses of matches who said "Yes," allowing pairs to fan the flames of love or a roaring dumpster fire during a follow-up date.
Countless do-it-yourself projects would never have seen the light of day were it not for Aurora Rents—gardens would remain untended, furniture unsanded, bedrooms unpainted. Luckily, the locally owned and operated business has rented tools and equipment—all properly cared for—to northwestern craftspeople for 50 years. Equally as vital, each employee carries industry expertise around in his or her tool belt, and delights in providing insights, safety tips, and techniques for refinishing floors or shellacking homemade Trojan horses.

Musikgarten classes elevate kinesthetic, logical, spatial, and social intelligences through musical instruction to children ages 3 months to 10 years. Each course responds to the developmental needs of a particular age group, with activities and acquired skills becoming more complex as classes ascend in age group. Family Music for Babies (ages 3–16 months) engages an adult and infant with 30–35 minutes of bouncing songs, dancing, and playing simple instruments. Curiosity curdles in amateur earthling brains and a foundation for future musical exploration is set during the Cycle of Seasons course, where children 3-1/2 to 5 years of age flirt with the foundations of rhythm and tune, coddle concentration skills, and garner the ability to self-express through sound waves. The Young Musician and Piano class, for ages 4-1/2–6 and 7–10 respectively, focus on symbolic thinking, memory, and listening acuity, and run for 55–60 minutes or until the first prodigious rock opera has been composed.
Even if you drank a beer every day, it would take more than a year to sample The Beer Authority's entire supply. The shop's fridges stock more than 400 craft beers from local and international breweries, while a rotating selection of new and seasonal brews fills its 13 taps. Those, in turn, fill to-go growlers and kegs, which can hold up to 120 pints, perfect for stocking end-of-the-world party bunkers. Taps also top off pints at The Beer Authority's bar, where they can be enjoyed on an outdoor patio, over games of foosball, or during sporting events shown on four flat-screen televisions. The bar also welcomes food from outside vendors, as well as any well-behaved dogs.
