2014 Clark County Fair

This summer has been turning out to be one hot and amazing season. I’ve been trying to spend most of it tanning next to a body of water and have succeeded thus far. I hope you have been enjoying the outdoors as much as I have. Unless, of course, you’re not into the whole “getting in touch with nature” thing – then I hope you’ve been at the cinema because this summer has seen some pretty good movies drop in the box office. I just hope, whatever you’ve been doing, you’ve been having fun.

clarkcountyribbonJuly is wrapping up quick and next month promises to be much hotter. First thing me and my family are going to – The Clark County Fair. From rodeos, to concerts, to demo derbys and monster trucks, rides, games and food for days, there’s no reason you shouldn’t head out to Clark County Event Center and Fairgrounds in Ridgefield, Washington. Starting Augusts 1st there will 10 full days of crazy. If you don’t like kids, crowds, smell of deep fried yumminess, or carnival rides, please stay away from this fair. If you are still in touch with the kid inside you, or have kids, then please come on down! There’s a whole lot of fun to be had!

Cinetopia: The perfect movie experience

Going to the movies used to be about just watching a movie but a few years ago I discovered Cinetopia.  It has changed the way I feel about the whole movie experience.

Before I would first plan where I was going to have dinner and have to take in consideration how long it would take to eat and then drive to make it to the movie on time.  Now, I have Cinetopia.

Cinetopia-Saveology-Offer-May-2012

Cinetopia is a movie theatre with it’s own restaurant and bar/wine tasting room depending on which location you go to.  The Cinetopia at the Westfield Mall has a bar/dining area and the Cinetopia off of Mill Plain has a wine tasting room/dining area. Their food is pretty decent and their drinks are delicious. One of the many perks is that they have certain movie parlors that only cater to over 21, which is really nice when it’s date night.  The last thing you want to hear is someone’s kid fussing when you left yours at home.

Also, if you don’t finish eating when it’s time for your movie, you don’t have to shove all your food in your mouth because in certain movie parlors they will bring your food and drinks into the theater! You can finish your food and even enjoy a glass of beer or a glass of wine while you are watching your movie.  You can even order dessert to be brought to your seat.  Oh! and at the Cinetopia off of Mill Plain, if you are there just for the movie, you can be seated early and enjoy a variety of soloists playing live music from the balcony. It’s really quite fancy! There’s comfortable seating, foot benches that you and a friend/honey can share and, if you are in a romantic mood, you can sit in one of their “love seats”!

So if you haven’t been to Cinetopia, I recommend you check Groupon first because they run a lot of deals.  You can get in for less than $25 and get a free small gourmet popcorn.  I have to admit that once you try Cinetopia you will not want to watch movies anywhere else.  It’s the complete package.  Go to http://www.cinetopia.com and check it out.

 

Spring Break Polynesian Style

What better way to kick off Spring Break than with a Polynesian dinner show?!

Add a little color and heat to this grey weather with a whole lot of hip shaking and deep rhythmic beats. This Sunday, at Main Event Sports Grill located in East Vancouver, Ora Nui Tahitian Dance Troupe will be putting on a sneak peek performance of their summer show “Hina & The Eel: Tahiti’s Beauty & The Beast.”

This small group is the only authentic Tahitian dance group in Vancouver so don’t miss out on enjoying a little bit of Tahiti right here in the Northwest. Come for the show, stay for the food, and get a chance at winning some sweet Ora Nui Tahitian swag. The group is fundraising for their show in June so bring a friend, or a whole group of friends, and help out these ladies and little ladies keep doing what they love.

Let’s kick off Spring Break Polynesian style this Sunday at Main Event!

All I want to do is get NAKED!!

Did I catch your attention or at least your curiosity? I hope that you won’t be disappointed to know that I’m talking about wine.   First let me start off by saying that I am far from a wine connoisseur  but I sure know what tastes good and drinking wines with names like Foreplay, Cougar, Tease, Fling and many more catchy names makes it even more intriguing.

The Naked Winery located in Hood River Oregon has an assortment of red and white wines that you can try in their assorted flights if you want to stop in for a taste.  Their wine tasting room is small but very comfortable. You can either stand by the bar or relax at one of the comfortable sitting areas around the room.  If you are like me and you can’t sit still, you can walk around and check out their risque’ merchandise. It’s sure to put a smile on your face and they have a lot of great gift ideas for all your open minded friends and family.

At Naked Winery we are on a mission to produce premium class Oregon and Washington wines, with exotic brands and provocative back labels that are just a bit risqué.  We strive to change the conversation and encourage you to set the mood of fun and romance.  Try opening a bottle of Foreplay with your Lover and see where the night takes you or give your friend a bottle of Bombshell Sweet Red to start off a fun girls night! There are so many wines to choose from for many different occasions.  If visiting wasn’t enough time for you to try all the wines you wanted to taste then you can always join Club Naked and get wines shipped to you every few months.  So ladies and gentlemen “Get Naked” and  grab a bottle of Sure Thing or Booty Call and let the adventure begin. Cheers!
