The show kicked off with Margaret and Suzie testing out a new brand of gold panning kits. Inspired by the hit Discovery Channel series "Gold Rush," Pay Dirt Gold Company has developed a Gold Rush Panning Kit, designed to bring individuals a unique experience panning for gold in the comfort of their own homes. Each Gold Rush Panning kit includes:
- professional gold pan
- snuffer bottle for retrieving gold from the dirt
- classic vial to store the gold
- Certificat of Authenticity
Each bag of "pay dirt" is sold separately and contains up to $500 worth of real gold. For more information, visit Pay Dirt Gold Company's website.
After doing a little panning for gold, Margaret introduced a story from KING5.com contributor Caitlin Murphy, who took us on a tour of three breweries making a big splash in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, not just on St. Patrick's Day, but any time friends want to gather: Maritime Pacific Brewing Company, Hilliard's Beer & Stoup Brewing.
