Cupcubes and squones?
What’s three-dimensional, has four sides, and tastes delicious? Everything you’ll find at the newest bakery in Wallingford, Cubes Baking Co., where everything is square! It’s totally random and we’re so into it. You’ll find everything from iced cupcubes to square sqones and cubed cakes. But if you REALLY don’t want a square, you can request a different shape.
There's more to Costco than free samples
Are you getting the most out of your Costco membership? Bulk up with eight hidden benefits that come with your card. For instance, the Issaquah-based megastore offers deals on airfare, gyms, movies and that’s just the beginning. We’ve linked to the secret perks here, you can thank us later (perhaps with a jumbo dog and drink?)
Ruby Beach is a hidden gem
The Washington coast is lined with rugged beauty. Tucked away on the Olympic Peninsula sits Ruby Beach – a hidden gem with six miles of walkable shore. Explore the ancient forest, wander through stacks of dreamy driftwood or just gaze at the sea stacks off-shore. KING 5 Meteorologist Ben Dery shares the stunning footage in his ongoing nature series: “Ben There, Done That.”

It's basically a computer for dogs. The multilevel puzzle keeps them occupied so they have less time to chew up our shoes and create mischief.
