There are so many new places and events swirling in my head that I can no longer remember which ones I've told you about. But I'm not complaining. This is a way better problem to have than this time last year when we were all locked down in our houses and I was scouring this city for any uplifting content at all. This week someone flipped the switch on summer it seems- pumpkins everywhere, chilly mornings, colorful leaves, bring it on....here we go..
Kirkland Harvest Festival- Oct 16th 10 am-4 pm at Juanita Beach Park. This FREE event features food trucks, live music (music vendors still needed!), artisan food, crafts, apple cider pressing, tractor-pulled wagons, photo booths, outdoor games, contests (pie eating and corn shucking, sign me up!). There is a Kid's Korral with faux cow milking and bull roping, ring toss, horseshoes, pumpkin bowling, cookie walk, crafts, and 4-H. Don't forget your mask! Everyone is required to wear one regardless of vaccination status. Parking is across the street.
Zombie Wine Crawl- Oct 22nd @6pm Heathman Hotel- Ahhh, Kirklanders...we love our wine and local businesses and friends, so what better way to stumble around than to hit the beloved local Zombie Wine Crawl? You need to think ahead for this one though, tickets typically sell out. They are on sale now for guests 21+ years plus for $25-35, depending on your VIP preference.
Kirkland Fall Market- Oct 9, Nov 13, Dec 11 10am-2pm. Shop local goodies and gifts this fall at the monthly market at Park Lane East.
Still Spa October Specials- I attended the Woodmark's Still Spa Passport Event last week (their first in-person event they've had since COVID) and it was PURE loveliness. The Express treatments were a 30-minute teaser to let you know what a full treatment might be like. It was like if someone pours you a 2oz taste of wine that is delicious and you're grateful but, man, you really just want the full pour. I may have fallen in love with Yasuko that did my facial. Their product lines include Eminence, Circadian, and also custom blends from The Bubblery in Leavenworth. Go check out their October Spa Specials where there are great deals on full treatments such as Apple & Spice 2 hr package and a 60-minute Spiced Pumpkin Mocha Facial.
And not necessarily fall-related but things you may want to know...
I ate at Soi and it's a really cool space in there on the second floor of Kirkland Urban. I was pleasantly surprised. And I think they have some cool small event spaces. Good food too, check it out!
Totem Village just made another restaurant announcement that they are super excited about. hanoon is part of the mama restaurant group (anar, mamnoon, mamnoon street and mbar). Construction begins soon with an opening set for late 2021/early 2022.
