  • Pacific Parasail
    Under the giant canopy of a parachute, parasailors take to the sky over Ruston Way suspended in swing harnesses. Peacefully flying through the open air, rides take off from the RAM Restaurant on beautiful Commence Bay. Up to three can fly together at an altitude that can reach higher than the Seattle Space Needle, and kids 4–10 fly free with an adult. Flyers can also rest easy as they enjoy the fantastic views, as the boat is piloted by a highly-trained and USCG-licensed captain and crew member who ensure flyers safely reach maximum altitudes.

  • Tower Lanes
    Five Things To Know About Tower Lanes With everything from the thunder cracks of bowling pins to the steady trickle of waterfalls, the atmosphere at Tower Lanes is anything but ordinary. The eclectic activity center brings an array of atmospheres, amusements, and even geographical terrains together under a single roof. Here’s a closer look at how Tower Lanes stands apart from the pack of other bowling alleys, mini golf courses, and activity centers: It’s open 24 hours a day: Tower Lanes never closes, meaning you can follow any passing whim, be it a midnight bowl, an early morning round of mini golf, or a lunch-hour arcade marathon. There are waterfalls, but no rain: Since it’s indoors, the 18-hole mini golf course allows for friendly competition anytime, regardless of the forecast. That being said, it feels anything but artificial. The course winds through rocky crags with waterfalls that spill into a running stream, which doubles as decor and part of the challenge. You can actually win things for being good at video games. While snagging the high score might be incentive enough, Tower’s game room ups the ante with physical prizes. The room features modern and classic games, from pinball and skee-ball to action arcades, and a redemption booth where victory manifests as tangible prizes. There’s also a 24-hour billiards room. Challenge a friend or a Paul Newman lookalike to game of pool at one of the three tables. Breakfast all day: Don’t worry if you got too wrapped up in a game of bowling or pinball to remember breakfast—Tower’s restaurant serves it all day. They also serve lunch, dinner, and plenty of cocktails in the bar, where you can watch the game on a huge screen or enjoy the weather from the outdoor patio.

  • Dive & Adventure Travel Expo 2013
    The Dive & Adventure Travel Expo 2013 will connect scuba and snorkel enthusiasts with some of the industry's top experts, brands, and innovations. More than 50 seminars scheduled throughout the weekend will showcase the diving deftness of speakers from across the country, enabling attendees to net information on such topics as underwater photography and safety. ReefID founder and editor John Fifer will host two of these gatherings, sharing ways his online database of diver-captured photos is helping raise awareness for marine life. Fifer will also play host to the expo's signature Saturday Night Film Festival event at 7 p.m. alongside 3D photographer Mark Blum and other presenters. In addition to engaging activities, the Dive & Adventure Travel Expo 2013 is also home to the best in dive-related gear and information. Approximately 140 exhibit booths connect attendees with purveyors of international adventure from global hotspots including Palau, Yap, the Virgin Islands, and Fiji. In addition to resort representatives, booths also house all of the equipment needed for undersea excursions, with new products ranging from snorkel and scuba innovations to travel accessories and luggage. During face-to-face conversations, dive skills clinics, or snorkel sword fights, expo-goers can get travel tips or plan dive vacations around the globe. While parents research, younger visitors can decamp to a youth section filled with interactive attractions designed for youngsters aged 8–12. Attendees who come for the education should probably stick for the prizes; the expo plans to give away over $50,000 in door prizes, including a massive grand prize: a full set of dive gear including a drysuit, Weezle undergarments, ScubaPro G260 regulator, Aqua Lung BCD, a TUSA mask, fin, and snorkel set, an Oceanic dive computer, and trips including weeklong Philippine dive adventure from the Marco Vincent Resort.

  • Co-Parenting and Divorce - Kids at the Center
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We provide support for the entire family through separate but simultaneous workshops for parents, kids 5-8 years old, kids 9-12 years old, and teens 13-16 years old. Parents and kids learn communication skills, coping mechanisms, how to create healthy boundaries, and manage challenging emotions. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? As a counselor I have been looking for a comprehensive resource for families looking to minimize the potential negative impact of family reorganization on their children, by including the children. This program provides exactly the type of support that is needed and missing in Pierce County. What do you love most about your job? Working with families and kids to help them deal with a challenging time in their lives is very rewarding! I have worked with thousands of families through the school system of the past 10 years, and divorce is an issue that is important to work on directly to create the best outcomes for kids. What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Although this program is new, I have had many divorce groups for kids over the years. The process of family reorganization can be isolating. Kids often say how nice it is to see that they are not alone and that others are feeling and experiencing the same things with their family.

  • Vino Aquino
    Perry and Penny grew up together near Prosser, Washington in the 1970s, and were close friends throughout elementary school. More than 20 years later, the two rekindled their friendship but it wasn't all smooth sailing from the start. That year, Penny started making fortified blackberry wine, which Perry described as, "indescribably undrinkable." More than a little annoyed by this harsh judgment, Penny challenged Perry to do better. The result of this winemaking challenge was four cases of merlot that won a second-place ribbon among the amateur entrants at the Puyallup Fair. Stina's Cellars grew from this initial success, and over time production grew and grew, until finally the team was able to move into a small facility and officially open the winery for business in 2006. At the winery, Perry and Penny—joined by helpful family and friends—make small batches of wine using grapes grown throughout eastern and western Washington. The type of wines they make changes frequently, but past bottles have included a dark and fruity syrah balanced by its bold tannic structure as well as an amber-hued roussane with hints of poached peaches and a pronounced nuttiness reminiscent of sherry. These wines appear on store shelves and restaurant menus throughout the region, but can also be sampled inside Stina's Cellars tasting room. Visitors are encouraged to stop in, try some samples, and attempt to guess which wine bottle contains a wish-granting genie.
