Here are five “pockets” that I thought you all might enjoy:
South Lake Union Block Party
Save the date for the South Lake Union Block party on Friday, August 12! Enjoy live music, “best burger in SLU” competition, Brave Horse Tavern beer garden and more. Facebook event page here.
Fashion trend: Geometric Jewelry!
We still have plenty of summer to enjoy, but fall fashion trends are coming out. I’m excited to see more geometric jewelry around—a look I can’t get enough of. Fashion trend forecasts expect to see more 80s comebacks, silvers and golds, and nautical overcoats (that reminds me, I need to find a good fall coat).
Chef Andy Ricker’s Pok Pok Vietnamese Wing Happy Hour
Legendary Portland chef (and two-time James Beard award winner) Andy Ricker (who I first was introduced to at Matt’s in the Market “Planes, Trains & Traveling Chefs” dinner) will be at Whole Foods in South Lake Union on August 5 from 5–7 pm. Enjoy Pok Pok’s sticky-sweet jumbo wings at $6 per order of three wings (first 250 orders will receive a free Pok Pok Som Soda.)
Summer beach playlist
This summer is all about beach days for me (mostly Madison Park Beach and Alki). Check out some great beach tunes here and add your own!
I thoroughly enjoyed “Harriet Wolf’s Seventh Book of Wonders,” a novel told from the perspective of different women in three generations of one family. What great books have you read lately? Check out my latest reads on Goodreads.
