Editor’s note: Spring ahead

By Keegan Prosser on March 29, 2013 – No Comment

Dear reader,

Can I sleep in? Is it spring yet? Is the sun out?

These are just some of the questions I’ve been asking myself since losing that extra hour to daylight savings time.

I’m totally OK with the hour loss. It means longer days, right? And we’re an inch closer to that two week period we can wear sandals in Washington. True story: we have the most beautiful spring in the ENTIRE WORLD. Just don’t tell out-of-towners; traffic is crappy enough without them.

For this issue of the Scene we’re giving you a sneak peek of things to do around the Eastside this spring. Looking for an adventure? We’ve got all the scoop on geocaching. Or maybe fashion is more your thing? If so, stylist Kim Brooks has some tips for spring styling.

In the entertainment department we’ve got two big stories: Heart is being inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in May – and we caught up with Steve Fossen and Roger Fisher, who co-founded the group! We’ve also got a feature on the new exhibit at the Triple Door’s Musiquarium Lounge – which features work by some of the Northwest’s best rock photographers.

Now, let’s talk food. In addition to catching up with the owners of Kukai Ramen and Izakaya, the Scene spoke to Chef John Howie, who was recently nominated for a James Beard Foundation award.

The standards are here too: Rose Dennis updates us on charitable happenings on the Eastside, Heija Nunn reminisces about the thrift find that got away and Carmen Lynch hints at what to expect from her set at the Parlor Live! Oh and lotsssss of Nightlife. Because, well, we get it.

The sun is on its way – and the Eastside is ready to party.
