The 100% natural limoncello and vodka from Seattle-based Letterpress Distilling is unlike you've ever had. They're using sustainable distilling practices to create liqueurs that you can feel good about and that taste amazing. We sat down with owner Skip Tornetti to find out how they do it.

You know that feeling when you have a revelatory culinary experience?

That happened to me when I tried the limoncello from a small distillery in Seattle that makes a limited-selection of spirits and Italian liqueurs using mostly locally-sourced raw ingredients. It’s subtly sweet and doesn’t have that typical burn on the way down. I would go as far to say that it should win an award for the best limoncello ever, but let’s just say it’s definitely the best in the Pacific Northwest.

I sat down with the owner and his partner to learn how they make such damn good spirits and what fuels their commitment to sustainable distilling.

Shopping and sipping events in Seattle this weekend, April 15-17.

April is proving to be super busy. I explored Victoria the first weekend of April, went to Hamma Hamma Oysters farm day and the Mariner’s Game this past weekend, and will be in San Francisco next weekend.

But that doesn’t stop me from fitting in some awesome events happening right here this weekend. And I’m super excited it will include mellow activities like craft fairs and, you know, vodka. Just what I need for a relaxing weekend to recharge while I’m still in Seattle. 🙂

This bauble statement necklace adds a ton of texture interest to the marled sweater, plaid collard shirt, and leather jacket.

I took a quick trip to Victoria, B.C. the weekend before last and I needed some comfy travel style to get me through the trip. We left at 8 am on Saturday and started sightseeing immediately upon arrival. Since we were sitting for about three hours, I needed something that would let me relax but also wouldn’t make me look like a total slob when we landed.

This is the look I decided on: a lot of lounge with a little bit of class.

Weekend wanderings lists the best things happening in Seattle over the weekend. This week it's all about the Taste Washington food festival, a popup shop, and a craft fair's storefront opening.

I’m going to Victoria, B.C. this weekend and am super bummed because I’m missing some great events. One of the best foodie events of the year is happening this weekend. Two of my favorite Seattle bloggers are hosting a popup. My favorite craft fair opened up a permanent storefront.

Luckily, me missing these events doesn’t mean you have to. Here are the three best events going on this weekend in Seattle.

A list of the best outdoor decor for your urban garden balcony.

I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I lived with a bare balcony for two years. I only started slowly creating my balcony’s urban garden last year. I started with an outdoor rug and Adirondack chair. Then I tested growing basil, mint, and thyme on a covered balcony with little direct sunlight (which met with varied success).

Though small, my investments made me realize just how rejuvenating it is to sit on your balcony during a Seattle summer. Now that the blooms are budding and the weather is getting warmer, I’m itching to finish what I started and create the urban garden oasis I’ve been envisioning for a few years. Read on for my plans and the items I need to make it happen.
