Editor’s note: February funk

By Keegan Prosser on January 25, 2013 – No Comment

Dear reader,

To be completely honest, I kind of hate the month of February.

It’s cold and gray. It’s dark and gloomy. Football is over (for us, tear). AND it has that really silly holiday everybody seems to get all googley-eyed about.

Don’t worry, this is not my attempt at a dating profile. I’ve never been one to really date, and as such, having a “Valentine” has never been at the top of my “to-do” list.

Don’t get me wrong, I love buying “Pirates of The Caribbean” themed valentines – or making custom glittery hearts for my friends and family. And I love receiving flowers from someone that really means something to me.

But, when it comes down to it, I think we should be telling the people we love that we love them everyday – and not just when Hallmark tells us to.

For this issue of the Scene, we’re skipping the sap (for the most part) and taking a look at some of the more active, entertainment-oriented activities
happening on the Eastside this month. Among our stories? The Wintergrass Bluegrass Festival, which comes to town at the end of the month. And a look at show dogs on the Eastside – as we await this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Hungry for tasty treats? Bellevue Brewing Company has you covered.

Feeling slighted by the lack of sentiment? No fear! We’ve also got suggestions for the perfect date in Woodinville. Wine and chocolate? Now that’s the kind of match-made-in-heaven I can get behind.

See, I do have a heart. It’s just kind of selective. So share the love – and jump in!
