  • Pipe + Row – from 1p to 8p – Check out the boho buds Winston White, and all the beachy vibes it offers, perfect for the sun that has finally emerged!  WW has just launched a stunning selection of swimwear, designed in its studio at Lake Tapps, and showcased at Pipe + Row.  Talk with swimwear experts while supporting small businesses, and listening to bumpin’ tunes!
  • El Camino Restaurant & Bar – Plan to have dinner (or a very happy hour) with their vibrant flavors of Oaxaca and Southern Mexico, and if the weather is fair, enjoy their back patio.  Show your May 18th receipt of purchase, from any local, Fremont business and get chips and guacamole free with purchase of any drink.
  • Portage Bay Goods – Enjoy a pop-up shop with Kelice Penney of Careful, It Bites!  Explore her selection of cuddly creatures from the deep wilds, severed yeti heads, cat balls and flasher bats galore, each one-of-a-kind and handmade in Seattle.
  • Bellefleur Lingerie – from 5p to 8p – May 18th marks this select shop’s signature spring event.  Participants will sip signature cocktails from St. Germaine liqueur while shopping from Ash + Ames Jewelry and learning about Lagree Fitness.  Of course, there will be plenty of gorgeous lingerie to check out as well.  RSVPs closed on May 14th, but contact to find out if space remains available.
