Destination Boston Harbor ♥ BeerBQ

hmmmm Beer…. hmmmm BBQ…. hmmmmm Boats! Sounds like a little taste of heaven at Boston Harbor Maria Friday night. This quaint little maria hasn’t changed much since it was built in the 1920s. #Oly360 #threemagnets #OlympiaWA #Beer

Gritty, Downtown, Fun, Dive Diner

When you come to #KingSolomonsOly, make sure to sit facing the window. Looking out onto 4th street I got the chance to see the edgy, gritty, downtown parade of local color and characters. It’s great viewing and fun to be safely on the inside looking out. Inside is still edgy but edgy in a young, beautiful, hipster kind of way; eyeliner, tattoos and piercings, vibrant, excited and ready to take on the world. #Oly360 #OlympiaWA #Divediner

Big Cajones = Great Steaks

The Yelp review drew me in. Kristyne M. had good things to say about the food at Ricardo’s in Lacey but a lot more to say about the fashion sense of the patrons and the host.

“Speaking of…what in the name of all things holy is the host doing wearing the chunky fake gold chain bling with Rolls Royce logo?  Jesus Vanilla Ice Christ, really? (Of curious note…no Rolls in the parking lot.  But a few lowered older model  Hondas with extra loud mufflers near the back)”

Normally I don’t see responses to statements like Kristyne’s in Yelp but in this case, there was a wonderful doozy.

Creamy French Fry Goodness

Ooey Gooey Cordon Who sauce dripping from my fingers. Clumps of Gorgonzola and prosciutto layered with stone-ground mustard, delicately balanced on two-wedge cut french fries. This is the perfect bite, truly a creamy delight. Is it rude to lick the plate? The Iron Rabbit’s Poutine Who is awesome!

Yes, we had dinner, yes it was great but NO I couldn’t get my mind off their Poutine! I really wanted to order a second helping and skip dinner altogether, but didn’t since after all I’m a lady. #Oly360 #IronRabbit #Poutine #OlympiaWA

Rhubarb Mohito

Ah the mojito. I rank it pretty high on the boozy summer refreshment list. Not to ignore a good margarita, but the mint in a mojito just cools you right off. Traditional mojitos are made with club soda, mint, lime and white rum. Add rhubarb and now the summer drink edges its way onto the […]

Aloha Lanai!

Thurston County is saying ‘aloha’ to Hawaiian flavors. The Lanai Café opened in downtown Olympia less than six months ago. Though the owners are from the Pacific Northwest, their business partners are from Maui and Oahu. The menu features items like a savory pulled pork that is slow cooked and shredded. It can be eaten […]

Foot stomping @ Rhythm & Rye

The place was packed. The drinks were cold and everyone was dancing! Hillstomp was in the house and they rocked the roof off. We’ll make sure you know next time they’re in town!

Sunday Funday!

Sunday Morning. The laziest of lazy mornings. After the drudgery of the working all week and the Saturday “gotta get sh*t” done mandate. Sunday is fun day. It’s the day you can have a refreshing cocktail and coffee while ordering breakfast. Now mind you, we are polite and respectable so ordering a fresh squeezed mimosa is the way to go.

Oly360 Jeremy's Farm to Table 7

Jeremy’s Farm to Table has excellent mimosas. They’re fresh squeezed, handmade to order and they are classic. I paired mine with Jeremy’s gluten free crepes stuffed with peaches then topped with whipped cream. It was breakfast dessert and I loved it!

If salad is your thing, Jeremy’s Caesar is crisp, refreshing with just the right tang of lemon.
