Love boozy confections? Then look no further than Copperworks Distilling Company located on Seattle’s waterfront.

In addition, visitors to the tasting room can sample a pre-release of the Copperworks Whiskey in a truffle. 5-piece collections are $13 and may make a great stocking stuffer for the craft distillery lover in your family.
You don’t really want to make Sheri LaVigne cry do you? Then head to the owner of Melrose Market’s Calf and Kid new entry on the food scene Culture Club when it opens early next year. With yet another spot on Capitol Hill, it’ll be all about the cheese here with flights, rotating mac n’ cheese creations and seasonal dishes. Cheese lovers will rejoice in the fact that LaVigne will be holding seminars in the space and dishing up what hopes to be the best plate of fromage in town. I can see Kim Jong Un licking his lips now…gross.
