New Home for MOHIA

Lots going on in Seattle this winter season!- not the least of which is the fabulous new venue for the Museum of History and Industry ( MOHAI) which moved last month to Lake Union.  The much larger, beautiful new location is on the south side of Lake Union in the former Naval Reserve Armory.

MOHAI showcases Seattle and the Pacific Northwest’s cultural, social and economic history in a playful, yet informative manner.  Some of the more famous artifacts at the museum include the first commercial airplane built by Boeing in 1919 and the original wooden Starbucks sign from 1973.

Permanent exhibits highlight Seattle’s past including “Maritime Seattle”. Don’t miss the interactive exhibit “Celluloid Seattle-a City at the Movies” on now thru September 8th, 2013.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for students and seniors. Children under 14 are free.  Visit for more information.

February is the sweetest month of the year!  Following are just a few suggestions where you can treat your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day and beyond:

Icon Grill- downtown (441-6330) has the biggest hot fudge sundae ever!- served in a bowl made of cookie dough, topped with hot fudge and treats like crumbled sugar cookies, m&m’s, slivered almonds and whipped cream. Serving for two is $12.

Try something fun and familiar- sure to bring back good memories – “S’mores” at Hot Cakes in Ballard (420-3431).  This inexpensive treat at just $4 consists of a square of chocolate ganache and a hand-toasted homemade marshmallow between two homemade graham crackers. Fun!

Or,,, how about a  tray for two at Poppy restaurant on Capitol Hill ( 324-1108) ? Six different treats make up the dish such as toasted rice pudding ice cream or chocolate truffle torte.  Delectable!

February in Seattle-delicious and entertaining!  Join us today- we look forward to seeing you!
