The second annual Pike Place Market Cheese Festival is this May 18th through the 20th. Last year was the first and was terrific. A caution: Go well before noon as that's when the stroller crowd comes out and grid locks the event.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
