Taste of Lynwood – I'm not talking about what we all know as Lynn-hood, I'm speaking of an event in the heart of Bainbridge Island at the Lynwood Center.  It's a day full of:  music, arts and crafts vendors, food and a beer garden.  There are plenty of options for kids as well in the kid zone.

Blend – This is the third annual event of "The World's Best Wine, Food and Places".  It showcases Washington's hottest blends from over 40 wineries.  There is a barrel blending station, a bubble lounge and gourmet cuisine, plus a whole lot more.  Did you read that?  A BUBBLE LOUNGE with sparkling wine, champagne and oysters.

  • 3-6PM @ Bell Harbor International Conference Center, Alaskan Way

I will be checking out the chocolate festival on Friday, a Husky game Saturday and Blend on Sunday.  An amazing, action packed, fun filled weekend.
