Try one of the best tacos in the US

Check out a course at UW

The University of Washington has just ranked as both one of the best schools in the world and also in the nation. And if you’re looking at university it might be looking more appealing than ever. Even more so because they have tons of free and low-cost programs that you can enroll in this fall.

Plan a fall date

Fall is probably the coziest season of the year and that means it’s a great time for dates! If you’re going to be planning some soon, we have a few ideas for you. Of course, we went ahead and made a whole list so you can pick and choose from your favorites.

Mindfulness Meditation at the Frye
