“One local blogger has made it her mission to help the rest of us discover the hidden gems of Western Washington.”  – New Day Northwest

As a recap, my five picks for this appearance included:

SANCA – The School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts in Georgetown! Take a Flying Trapeze class or drop in on Friday’s for their Pay-Per-Flight sessions. This fantastic school also offers series and one time classes in tumbling, aerial work, gymnastics, strength training, and more for kids and adults.

The Electric Boat Company – be captain for a day! These cute duffy boats in South Lake Union fit up to 10 people. You can bring your own picnic and wine with you for a gorgeous ride on the lake with family and friends.

Olympus Spa – One of my happy places. Their Lynnwood location features different temperature hot tubs, a cold plunge, sauna, steam room, and (my favorite)  multiple silent heated rooms. Don’t forget to try the bibimbap in stone pots in their Korean restaurant.

Seattle Chocolates – these are my favorite chocolates! Their “Here’s to You” flavor is Dark Chocolate Truffle with natural Turkish popping candy. Let it melt in your mouth for a delicious experience akin to pop rocks. Available at Bartell Drugs, PCC, and other shops around town.

Big Picture Theater – perfect for a date night or a fun experience with friends. This place has a total speakeasy feel to it, with comfortable little nooks to sit and chat before the show. This is a 21+ theatre. It has a fantastic bar AND you can pre-order a drink to be delivered to you during the movie. Be sure to order popcorn with white cheddar or truffle butter, served in swanky champagne buckets.

These fabulous businesses have provided gifts for me to giveaway to my readers in the coming days and weeks:

  • A Gift Card to SANCA good for tuition or merchandise.
  • A certificate to Olympus Spa in Lynnwood that includes a day pass, a body scrub, and a body moisturizing service. (Giveaway is now live on my blog!)
  • Treats from Seattle Chocolates – perfect gifts for Valentine’s Day.
  • A Movies & Martinis gift certificate from The Big Picture – includes movie passes and cocktails for two and a bucket of popcorn.
