Black Beauty Breed
Fantastic Films: Black Beauty Breed
Don’t Miss This Enlightening Documentary Screening on Thursday August 7th If Hollywood were any indication of what to expect in real life, we would believe boosting cars like Vin Diesel was cake, and having our vehicles morph into our best friend Optimus Prime at dusk was an average Tuesday night. If we know these cinematic dreams aren’t reality,  why is it that when we see an angry rottweiler attack the mailman on a sitcom, we laugh knowingly, and assume the bully breed got its name for a reason.

The Radar: Pure Barre Does Green Lake
I was looking at my calendar the other day and I realized I haven’t experienced the burn of Pure Barre for almost six months. Six months! The dismay! Blame it on being a first-time working nursing mom, I guess, since doesn’t seem to be a shortage of Pure Barre locations across western Washington, that’s for sure.   And now, my everyone’s favorite ballet-based total body workout is creeping even further westward with dynamic duo Sami and Brandon Sweeney’s fifth location in four years coming to Green Lake–the Sweeney’s own ‘hood.
