  • Freedom Fitness
    As a personal trainer for a big gym, Drew deVry grew disenchanted by the hundreds of dollars he was asking people to spend on training each month. He knew that the costs were prohibitive for so many people, and so he struck out on his own and opened Freedom Fitness. With more than a decade of training experience and a certification from the American College of Sports Medicine to guide him, Drew developed hundreds of exercise routines for people of every ability level. When members walk in the door, he and his staff pick out a workout based on their goals and restrictive issues before helping them get acclimated to the equipment. Routines make use of equipment such as free weights, cable machines, and a full lineup of cardio equipment, including the gym’s treadmills, elliptical machines, recumbent bikes, and StairMasters. In addition to penning a plentitude of workout plans over the years, Drew—a certified nutritionist—has also authored a variety of nutrition plans. He and his staff pick one to suit each member, usually starting off aggressively to trigger an encouraging round of fat loss, then tapering into a sustainable plan for lifelong health. He eschews reliance on supplements in favor of tapping into the nutrition in everyday foods, hoping to inspire a "love affair" with fruits and vegetables that makes visits to the produce section exciting.

  • Bison Creek Pizza & Pub
    At Bison Creek Pizza & Pub, the past meets the present in both food and d?cor. 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.

  • Elliott Bay Brewhouse and Pub
    Five Things to Know About Elliott Bay Brewhouse and Pub Maybe it was fate that brought the team behind Elliott Bay Brewhouse and Pub together. Future owners Todd Carden and Brent Norton were working at Maritime Pacific Brewing Co. when they met, as was future head brewer Doug Hindman. On July 11, 1997, the trio decided to venture out on their own. Read on to learn more about their burgeoning brewing empire: The pub has two sister locations. They’re in Lake City and West Seattle, and if you connect all three points on a map the outline looks suspiciously like a triangle. Most of the beer begins with the same foundation. The brewmasters start with organic malt for all of their year-round beers and most of their seasonal recipes. Brewing happens twice a week. The original West Seattle brewery churns out 200 gallons, while the Burien brewery produces 300. Both batches rest in cellaring tanks for four weeks before reaching your glass. The process results in seven year-round beers. These include the No Doubt Stout and the Luna Weizen, an American-style wheat beer made with organic malt imported from Germany. This commitment to sustainability extends well beyond beer. The pub menu features free-range chicken and all-natural beef, as well as buns baked with spent grains from the breweries.
