National S’mores Day
August 10 is National S’mores Day, and you better believe we plan on partaking. There are many ways to s’more this weekend, and we’ve got our eyes on a few options.
Prefer to indulge the classic way? Pick up a bag of Smashmallows from your local grocery store and celebrate with a backyard fire. We love Smashmallows because they come in crave-able flavors, including mint, toasted coconut pineapple, and root beer.
Want to make a day of it? Cross Lake Washington and hit up Hot Cakes in Ballard or Capitol Hill for a s’mores-centric menu of desserts: s’mores molten cake, roasted ‘mallow milk, and s’mores cookies, to name a few. You can also pick up a take-and-bake smoked chocolate cake with house-made marshmallow, which sounds like heaven on a platter.
Bakery Nouveau in Burien and Seattle has crafted hand-held s’mores with its take on a graham cracker shortbread cookie holding together chocolate ganache and a vanilla marshmallow filled with salted caramel and topped with its house-made chocolate.
Don’t want to limit yourself to one day of s’moring? Every night this month, Alderbrook Resort & Spa is offering complimentary roast and toast s’mores for their hotel guests, with a special s’mores scavenger hunt every Thursday at 5 p.m.
However you get your s’more on this Saturday, tag us on social media!
Let’s Toast to RBG
In honor of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, BROVO Spirits is throwing a week-long party, through Aug. 11, with cocktails that pay homage to one of our favorite women’s rights advocates. Ginsburg founded the ACLU Women’s Rights Project in 1972, so BROVO also is donating funds to support the ACLU with every bottle of the Amaro 4 sold.

It’s Going to Be an Oyster Party
Whether you’re a die-hard oyster fan, or if you’ve been too timid to partake, we highly recommend heading over to Bar Ciudad in Seattle for an outdoor oyster party with Lil’ Woody’s and Taylor Shellfish. Dig into an oyster burger, smoked oyster dip, and more from 5-10 p.m. on Aug. 14.
