White water

Washington’s Columbia Valley moves away from some American styles to produce white wines with an Old World sense of restraint.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Reason No. 1 to shop the Washington section of your favorite wine shop is probably price. According to Wine Spectator magazine’s Augustus Weed, “Exploring Washington’s white wines can be easy on the wallet, with most of the bottlings … priced at $20 or less.”

Adult ice cream

Ice cream cocktails sound brilliant, but it takes skill to keep a delicacy from turning into a sludge of cream and alcohol.

Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
Ice cream plus alcohol should equate a simple and sinfully indulgent dessert cocktail, but the frozen cocktails are rare delicacies in bars across the metro because they are trickier to concoct than one might assume.

Skinnier cocktails

Bars around the metro are starting to offer skinnier versions of sugary favorites, but some cocktails have always been skinny.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
You know “skinny” is a popular trend when Cheesecake Factory adds menu items under that category. The chain best known for massive portions and the signature dessert in its name added low(er) calorie cocktails at the beginning of 2011, most notably a skinny Mojito and a margarita, classic drinks with a week’s supply of sugar in the recipe.

An app for that

Local tech can help with navigating, drinking and, now, charitable giving.


Nicole Hill
Your smartphone can do a lot for you: stream movies and music, apply vintage filters to photos of your breakfast, occasionally take calls and — depending on your operating system — successfully navigate your travels. It’s life streamlined at the tap of a screen.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts

OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.
