Bill Fredericks, AKA the Chocolate Man, is a chocolate expert (his chocolate tasting class with more than 40 different kinds of chocolate to try was one of my first food events here in Seattle), and he offers classes in his Lake Forest Park shop. Check out the details for this class scheduled for Saturday, March 15 from 6-9pm.
This weekend might not have been entirely inspiring for those waiting to get out and garden, but here's hoping the arrival of Daylight Savings Time will also mean the arrival of a little more sunshine in our daylight.
If you want to get ready for spring and summer garden, there are many events happening around the Sound to help. Check out the below calendar of gardening classes, talks and other events. Many are free!
I mentioned earlier this week that I've been writing for Groupon. They've started a city guide (separate from their deal section), and I've been writing some resource guides on topics like things you might read about here. So on Groupon, you can see the venues and resources for some of these kinds of events and activities, and here you can see the actual schedule of any current events. Check out the list below if you're interested in birdwatching, going to museums or wine tastings for free, learning to make soaps and other crafts, finding great food bargains and more.
As mentioned yesterday, I've joined the Slow Food Seattle board, and am helping organize the Slow Food book club. We've got some great titles lined up for the next 3 meetings. Check out the details below and come join us at one or all! They are free to participate in and you do not need to be a member to come.
Location details for May and July yet to be determined, but this will give us all time to start reading the books!
I was doing so well. I entered 2014 with the plan to post every weekday, and I made it all the way through January. Then February started, I came down with a respiratory situation, and I haven't posted since February 4th.
Here's some other stuff I've been up to!
