Sometimes our outings have so many people signing up that we need to start a waitlist, and sometimes it’s not about quantity of residents signed up, but quality of the trip.

At the beginning of every month, we put out a new batch of sign-up sheets for that month. While some offerings are less popular, many others are spilling over with residents clambering for a spot.

Howdy, Y’all! It’s Western Night!

Western Night

May 23rd brought us a GORGEOUS warm day here in rainy Seattle, so the best way we thought to celebrate was to have a pre-dinner social and themed dinner! These bandits, cowboys and cowgirls, and prospectors enjoyed playing dress-up for the evening together in our living room-turned-saloon. Even our wait staff got in on the fun […]
