Whose Work is That? Page Through the New York Times and Catch a Glimpse of Seattle Stair & Design's Work

It's not often that you open up the pages of the New York Times and out pops gorgeous photos by Stuart Issett of your work. That's just what happened with Seattle Stair & Design whose craftspeople had a hand in those breathtaking stairs at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

And the photo with that stool, that practically screams out "modern Northwest aesthetic"?  Indeed, it's one of theirs too.

Read Seattle Stair & Design's blog to learn more. In the meantime, we're toasting to the joys of happy little surprises like this.

March 22 is World Water Day: Watch and Share This Video Please

Think about it, the water in our toilets is cleaner than the drinking water of nearly one billion people.

And on average, women walk 3.7 miles a day for water around the globe.

Watch this video with Matt Damon and Gary White and lend your voice to the cause, being championed by the good people over at
Here locally, look for the blue lit arches of the Pacific Science Center in support of World Water Day.

World Water Day started in 1993 by the United Nations. While different groups use it to highlight different impacts of water on this day, uses the entire week to lift up their mission: sustainable safe water access for the nearly a billion people currently without it. Their goal is to make this a reality in our lifetime.

Dr. Richard Baxter Seattle DANCES Winner

Our favorite Renaissance doc proved once again that he’s a remarkable overachiever. Professionally Dr. Baxter is known as one of the leading plastic surgeon’s in the country, pioneering new techniques and technologies.

He’s an artist who sketches regularly, using his art education to inform the aesthetics of his surgery practice to achieve the natural look Northwesterners (and now others) prefer. He’s an anti-aging and beauty expert who travels the globe speaking about his book “Age Gets Better with Wine”, the go-to tome for those interested in the science behind the hype. He’s a foodie who was a finalist in Sunset Magazine’s recipe contest years ago for his turkey molĂ©. And earlier this month Dr. Baxter added Argentinean tango dancer to his resume after winning the coveted Cyber Choice mirror ball trophy in Seattle’s version of “Dancing With The Stars” as a celebrity raising funds for Seattle’s chronically homeless through the annual Seattle Dances event. What’s next? We hesitate to ask; but we’ll be excited to find out.

Read about the event in Patti Payne’s recent article “Executives Dancing Up a Storm” in the Puget Sound Business Journal

NBC Seattle KING 5 News Story on Juan Diego Academy Holy Rosary Tacoma, from Mild-Mayhem to Mellow. Quiet Lunches During Lent

We were delighted to have KING 5 reporter Eric Wilkinson join us in Tacoma at Juan Diego Academy this week. Wilkinson did lunch with us on Wednesday at this 120 year old school at the parish of Holy Rosary, for a day of indoor recess and a, let's just say "jovial buzz" of conversation.  Come Friday what this NBC reporter saw was an entirely different side of the entire student body.  Some might even call it... angelic.  Watch his report here.  It's pretty cute!

Imagine: quiet lunches on Fridays during Lent.  Parents of preschoolers who can't imagine their kids enjoying silent lunches during Lent 2013, but who are intrigued by the idea, should hop over to their website and get info on admissions for next year when the school officially rolls out its two way immersion, dual language program starting with pre-k and kindergarten learners.

Too Legit: Post Prohibition, Woodinville Whiskey Co. Bottles Delivered Legally to Above Ground Bar and a Seattle Icon

KOMO News snuck a snapshot of a deal going down this morning.  Their report: "In an event notable for its lack of Tommy guns, paddy wagons and Al Capone, the Space Needle received the state’s first private delivery of liquor since Prohibition.
The state's first private delivery of liquor since Prohibition goes down at the Space Needle

Thanks to November’s voter-approved initiative, Woodinville Whiskey Co’s distributor, Click Wholesale Distributing of Kent, was able to sell and deliver its shipment of the local distillery's Headlong White Dog Whiskey and Peabody Jones Vodka to the Needle at 9 a.m. this morning.

March 1 is the first day bars and restaurants in Washington can buy directly from distilleries since the state-run liquor system started in the 1930s.

But, the average drinker won’t be able to purchase alcohol from private retailers until June. So far, more than 800 stores have applied to sell liquor statewide."
