How're ya feelin'? I was born and raised right here in Yakima. Though I moved away for about 10 years I found my way back and glad I did. I love to cheerlead new restaurants and businesses coming to town. Also a fan of craft beer, being we live in the hop capital of the world. #ShopLocal #DrinkLocal I have three amazing kids, love breakfast cereal and am a huge retro gamer. I love new video games, too, but have a deep appreciation for the classics on systems like NES and Sega Genesis.

Spirit Halloween Brought Back the Old Plastic Costumes of the 70s/80s
Spirit Halloween is now open in Yakima in the old Bed, Bath and Beyond store at Valley Mall. Like with other Spirit Halloween stores they provide everything you need to have a happy Halloween with costumes, decorations and so much more. One thing that caught my eye were these boxed costumes I haven't seen in the 80s...
This New Bakery is a Hidden Gem and Within Driving Distance from Yakima
I'm a big fan of locally-sourced baked goods. There's a few places in Yakima and the Yakima Valley to grab something along those lines. For the past couple of months, I've heard about this amazing place seated in humble Prosser, Washington. I finally had a chance to stop by and I'm glad I did...
Sonic Drive-In in Yakima, Tri-Cites, Ellensburg and more — Temporarily Closed
If you happen to drive by Sonic Drive-In you'll see there are garbage cans blocking the entrance with bags covering the enter and exit signs. Not a good look for Sonic Drive-Thru, a convenient spot for a quick bite to eat or fun treat on the corner of 1st and Nob Hill. But what happened?
Today Marks Day One of the Disappointing Single Afternoon Flight Option in Yakima
It's a day I've been dreading since I first learned about Yakima dropping to one flight earlier this year. Today marks the first time for who-knows-how long that you can only fly out of Yakima once a day and it's not even that convenient of a flight if you're connecting to somewhere else.

Maybe some cake mixes, chocolate sauce, sprinkles, canned whipped cream, ice cream and more. You get up to the checkstand and are confused when the cashier asks to see your ID. What do you do?

Is the Captain Cod Food Truck Worth It?
When Captain Cod is in town, they're not hard to miss. Parked in a parking lot or corner of an intersection their vivid blue stands out like a sore thumb. I thought they just had fish and chips along with clam chowder but to my surprise, they had a lot more on the menu...
