Weekend Wanderings: Comox Valley, BC
We’ve always found British Columbia to be an alluring destination: The beautiful province is conveniently close to Seattle and offers an opportunity to use our passports when we’re feeling the itch. Perhaps most importantly, Canada happens to be home to some of the nicest people on the planet. (And right now, for obvious reasons, many of us feel an urge to migrate north more than ever before.)

Simply put, when it comes to drunk driving, cops have heard them all before and are actively looking for a reason to pull you over. It’s time to put these excuses to bed where they belong. (more…)

Nasty Women Roll Call: A Historic Day at the Seattle Womxn’s March
A peaceful, magnetic and hopeful crowd protests in Seattle Photo by Emily Stevenson Confession: I decided to join the march last minute. I had a long week leading up to inauguration day (shitty excuse) and fell into bed Friday evening hoping I’d wake up in an alternate universe. One where the defeat and angst worn by so many Seattleites and Americans around the country would be answered by the tiniest glimmer of hope. As it turns out, when I woke up on Saturday morning ready to roll out my protest (more…)
