But thanks to the incredible, scientific development of options like Darigold FIT, making the best choice for his health doesn’t always mean skipping what he wants. Nor does it mean sacrificing flavor.

I get it. Starbucks is a big-box chain. There’s one on every corner. They aren’t ‘unique.’ Howard Shultz let the Sonics leave Seattle.

I understand all the arguments against Starbucks. And, I love me some mom-and-pop local shopping.

But here’s the deal — I also really like Starbucks. Sure, I’m not going get some ultra-inspiring experience at the green mermaid. But it offers a few things that make it invaluable in my world.

1. Free Internet
2. Consistency
3. Holiday Panini
4. Mobile Office
5. Free (or Cheap) Refills
6. Rewards Program
7. Dog-Friendly

Which Starbucks do I like the absolute best? The on Lake Union! Follow the link in my profile to find out why.

Don’t just dream about Side Hustle Doughnuts. Don’t just think you’ll visit someday. Set your alarm. Get yourself out of bed. And get yourself down to Georgetown. You won’t be disappointed. In my humble opinion, these are the best doughnuts in Seattle.

Silky porters. Hoppy IPAs. Citrus loaded sours. Bend brewers know more than a thing or two about crafting exceptional microbrews. But as luck would have it, beer’s not the only tastebud satisfying game in town. Many a brewery and tap house are plating up savory treats that will rock your world (while also helping you stay sober enough for another round).

When his first restaurant, Sawyer, earned a James Beard Nomination for ‘Best New Restaurant,’ was Mitch Mayers surprised? Maybe. But after experiencing his eclectic menu loaded with Pacific Northwest ingredients and Mexican-South American flare, it’s clear no mistake was made.

It’s possible to buy pockets of love. Homer proved it one warm, puffy pitta at a time.

Even a blustery, wet sidewalk couldn’t deter a dozen-plus shuffling patrons from claiming their spot in line. Because while the former yoga-studio was anything but roomy, the promise of hand-rolled, wood-fired pita was just steps away.

I love Reubens! Have printed and will be giving this a try!

Heading north from Seattle for a long weekend getaway we decided we would grab a bite to eat in Everett. Our initial instinct was to find a place on the waterfront, but after reviewing our options we decided we wanted something different.

After some deliberation, we decided to chance The New Mexicans restaurant on Hewitt Ave. Admittedly, it didn’t have the waterfront view, but it certainly did have its own unique character and a staff that genuinely care about what they serve and whether you like what they serve.

We were both very hungry, but after hearing the portion size, decided to share a carne asada breakfast burrito and spinach salad. Both were delicious and more than enough to satisfy two hungry travelers. This was our first New Mexico style burrito which was different than what we’ve had in Mexican restaurants. The meal was very good – everything was well prepared and tasted like it was home cooked from secret recipes – spicy, tasty and filling. We will definitely be back!
