Born and raised in Yakima, moved around for about 8 years and just recently moved back. Married with 3 kids and all of the responsibility that goes with it. I love being a dad, I think I know how to cook and love being back in Yakima.
Next to Elks Park on Hathaway in Yakima is the location for the new cider bar for Tieton Cider Works. They had a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday. I just had to make a casual appearance to check out the location and see what they had on tap, figuratively and literally. Here's what I saw.
Fast food restaurant, Chick-fil-A, has announced that they're finally bringing their food back to Washington State. They're set on opening three new restaurants that should be open by spring of next year.
This weekend is the time we set our clocks back an hour. That means it'll get dark earlier, but it also means we regain the hour we lost when Daylight Saving Time began back in the spring. Here are a few things to consider doing with that extra hour.
Comedian, actor and all-around swell guy Paul Rodriguez called me this afternoon to chat for a while. I was looking forward to his call as he's going to be live in Yakima at the Capitol Theatre this Saturday, Nov.1, with the Latin Kings of Comedy tour. We talked about how he's not supposed to be using his pool since California is under orders to conserve water, how 'Ebola' sounds too friendly and his memories of picking apples in Washington state. Here's the entire interview, unedited!
My wife came with me to work for a little bit this morning, but needed three bags. Not just her purse or anything, but it looked as if she were set to go on a weeklong vacation. Take a wild guess as to what you think is in that beige Hawaiian bag. You might be surprised.
The Ike Players are doing their presentation of 'Our Town' on Nov.13-14 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. This unique play is performed without sets or props. It's worth attending.
Our Town is a 1938 three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder
Driving down 72nd between Summitview Avenue and Tieton Drive, I noticed a sign I've never seen before. It said that there was a place called Westside Pizza. It's not open yet, but here's what you can expect.
In recent years, the hop industry has really taken off on a local level. I mean, we've always had a huge hop industry as the Yakima Valley accounts for 75 percent of the U.S. hop crop, but it's gained a much higher local profile with new breweries like Yakima Craft and Bale Breaker popping up.
Can you do more than just make beer with hops, though? Apparently, the answer is, "Yes!"
Introducing LolliHOPS from Yakima Hop Candy. Yes, it's a hop-flavored lollipop and you can help these become a reality.
Congratulations have to go to Selah Intermediate School. They raised the most food and donations in the recently completed 10 Deeds in 10 Days food and cash drive. In return, they will take over our radio station for one full day.
This past weekend was the Extra Life video game marathon.
It gave gamers a chance to play video games for 24 hours straight, requesting donations for the good of the cause. Players chose the local children's charity of their choice and started playing. This year, the national total came to $5,102,500.90!
