Local Deals

79130_large

Today’s Spotted Fox deal is fantastic: Buy a voucher for $20 worth of food and drinks at Uncle Sam’s Saloon for just $10!  The best part about this deal is that half of all proceeds go to a local charity, After School Matters!

Uncle Sam’s Saloon is my favorite, favorite bar in the entire Tri-Cities. It is just a little hole in the wall across from Costco, but they have super cheap beer and the BEST bar food in the entire world. Their nachos are seriously the size of a small car and could feed an entire baseball team! Before we had kids, my husband and I use to go there all the time and watch baseball or football and have dinner. They have a zillion TV’s and just about every sporting event in the world can be watched there.

This bar will always be near and dear to my heart.  I went in there one day before my husband and I got married, sat and had a beer and wrote my wedding vows.  Perfect environment for such an occasion, don’t you think?

Click here to get started.

The fine print:
* Limit 2 per person, may buy 1 additional as gift
* Food must be purchased with drinks
* Expires 12/31/2014
* Full amount of voucher must be used in one visit

Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, WA is hosting their Apple & Pumpkin Festival starting Saturday September 27th.  The festival runs Saturday the 27th and Fridays and Saturdays for the entire month of October.  Hours are 9 AM to 5 PM and admission is free.

Bring the whole family out to pick apples or pumpkins, ride the Barnyard Train, visit the petting zoo, enjoy a BBQ lunch, press your own apple cider and more.  They have the corn maze, which is shaped like a barnyard complete with tractor and silo, with a smaller maze just for young kids.

Our family LOVES Bill’s.  We attended the festival last year and had a wonderful time.  Ate some outrageously delicious (and addicting) homemade donuts, played on the swings and picked several pumpkins at a very reasonable price per pound.  We can’t wait to go back this year!

For more information and directions, check out Bill’s Berry Farm website.

If you haven’t heard of Goldstar yet, they are an awesome site that offers discount tickets to events, concerts and performances nationwide.  They have a HUGE selection of venues and events to choose from and this is a great way to have a night or afternoon out without breaking the bank.

These unforgettable songs by master composer Marvin Hamlisch, combined with stunning dancing and powerful storylines, make for an unforgettable theatrical experience.

There are 11 dates and times to choose from and tickets are as low as $42, with regular prices ranging from $80 to $90!

This past weekend, my husband and I and some friends attended the Tri-Cities Parade of Homes put on by the Home Builders Association of the Tri-Cities and had a blast!  If you have never been, the Parade is a collection of 25 homes around West Richland, Richland, Pasco and Kennewick done by different builders in the area.  The ticket you purchase has a space for each home that you get stamped at each visit.

The Parade ran all last weekend, this Wednesday September 10th from 1 PM – 7 PM and next weekend, September 13th and 14th from 9 AM to 5 PM.  You can visit the homes anytime during these windows and you are welcome to poke around anywhere in the house, ask questions, take pictures and just enjoy the amazing features and design. The houses range in size and are broken up by square foot category.

We spent all of Saturday morning running up and down Tri-Cities, checking out as many houses as possible but still trying to enjoy them.  We didn’t even make it to half!  They varied so much in design, color, layout, landscaping and size and it was really fascinating to see how different builders envision a home.  My husband and I love to dream and talk about what the future holds, so we really enjoyed this time we got to spend together.  Going with friends this year was really interesting as well, hearing others’ ideas and feedback and opinions opened my eyes to really see a lot more of what was going on in the houses.  It was so fun to talk about possible upgrades we could make to our house or what we would love in a future house.

Just a few of our favorite rooms and ideas:

10637893_10203963099472142_1647005739_n

I LOVE the mix of modern materials with basic and clean cupboards and drawers.  The back splash really gives everything a homey feel and makes the space far more interesting.

10656124_10203963099272137_1001389552_n

I just love the simplicity of this room.  And apparently I really like white cupboards.

For some reason, this bathtub made me want to jump in and swim around.  So much light coming in through the window and I LOVE the walls.  They give it a very farmhouse feel.

A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of touring the amazing Carousel of Dreams in the Southridge Sports Complex in Kennewick.  The carousel has been a work in progress for quite some time and it is close to completion!

The carousel itself was built in 1910 and started out in Silver Beach Park in Michigan through 1972.  After sitting with a collector for several years, the 45 horses and three chariots were purchased and transported to Tri-Cities, where they went through a full restoration for their new home.   The carousel chassis is new, but there are small touches from the original, like the wood on the benches surrounding the carousel.

The inside of the carousel is completely open, so all the inner workings are visible.  All the lights are LED so they can stay on indefinitely and the carousel will be very visible at night.

10477095_10203421474851865_609629918_n

My kids were huge fans of the carousel and put it through the ringer.  I promise, if these two can’t destroy it, it’s pretty solid.

The attention to detail on these horses is amazing and they are so beautiful!

WFM_PN_ODS_Cherries_7-11_US_social-2

 

Whole Foods Market is having a one-day sale on Washington-grown cherries this Friday, July 11 only for just $1.99 per pound—a 60% discount

Here are a few ideas for using all those cherries:

  • Pick ‘em. Pick your cherries with green stems without brown patches or bruising.Cherries should be plump and firm and not wrinkled or shrunken.
  • Pit ‘em. Hack it old school and use a glass bottle with an opening smaller than thecherry and a chopstick. Simply place the cherry stem side down in the glass bottle and punch the chopstick through the middle. Learn more ways here.
  • Bake ‘em. There is nothing like a pie with peak-of-the-season cherries. Try making scones or cake as well!
  • Freeze ‘em. To freeze cherries, remove pits and stems, and then spread in a single layer on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Once they are frozen solid, transfer to a freezer-safe storage container. Perfect for smoothies!
  • Preserve ‘emCherries can last up to a week after purchase; make some jam after that!
  • Dry ‘em. To dry cherries, remove pits and stems, and then spread on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, or on an oiled rack fitted into a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 200°F oven for several hours (possibly 6-8), until cherries are dried and wrinkly. This makes an easy lunchbox snack or granola addition.

Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, WA is hosting their Blueberry Daze Festival on Friday July 4th and Saturday July 5th.  The festival runs from 9 AM to 5 PM each day and admission is free.

267945_2037059860428_2130148_n1-225x300

Bring the whole family out to pick blueberries or cherries, listen to live music, enjoy a BBQ lunch or freshly made blueberry donuts, stroll through tons of different antique vendors or take the kids to the petting zoo.  My kids LOVE Bill’s.  When I told them we were going this year, all they talked about were the donuts.

Their blueberries are just $2.50 per pound.  Per ounce, this would make the regular grocery store size (6 oz) just $.94 each.  Fantastic price!  Cherries are $1.75/lb to $2.75/lb, depending on variety.

For more information and directions, check out Bill’s Berry Farm website.
