Seattle's baby giraffe finally has a name! Woodland Park Zoo announced the little girl's name on Thursday—and Lulu it is. The baby giraffe was born one month ago and was named by Al Buckingham, who attended the Jungle Party fundraiser and made a generous donation.

Angel on two wheels
Scary turn of events when a cyclist on the Seattle to Portland bike ride suffered cardiac arrest. A stranger stopped to aid him, which likely saved his life. Now the cyclist is searching for the woman who helped to deliver a heartfelt thank you. Can you help?
Beer & the beach
What more could we ask for? The Pourhouse in Port Townsend has 250 bottles and 12 rotating taps of pure deliciousness. But what really sets this place apart is its beach, ferry view, and seating area. Dogs are welcome, and some guests have even arrived on their horses. Cheers!
