Hey, Blue Angels!
Yep – we said it. They're here! It's another sure sign of summer in Seattle: the Blue Angels and Seafair ! Remember, they need to get some practice in before the big weekend, which will impact traffic on I-90. Other traffic delays are expected through the weekend, so plan ahead and ENJOY!

Frosé has FINALLY made its way to Seattle!
Is it just us or does it feel like all the fun food and drinks we see on social media are never here in the Pacific Northwest?
