Grateful Not So Dead

Grateful not-so-dead

For a band that hasn’t played in nearly 30 years, Grateful Dead seems to still have a big following today, especially in Bellingham and along the West Coast.  

Beer for a cause

Buy a beer for a good cause

Bellingham’s largest beer festival, April Brews Day, brings over 4,000 people to the area to enjoy brews from the Pacific Northwest. This year, the one-day festival is being held on April 29. This is the first time the festival has taken place since 2019.  Throughout the years, April Brews Day has continued to grow. Katie Gray, the event planner,  said they are expecting around 5,000 attendees, 50 breweries and food vendors this year.  There will be gluten-free, vegan and non-alcoholic options available. The event is for ages 21 and over and dogs are not allowed.

Since the first Earth Day in 1970, events around environmental protection have evolved. Originally, more than 20 million participants were involved — to some degree — in protests, marches and other events across the nation, fighting to create political change.

The latest exhibit at the Whatcom Museum showcases one of Japan’s many textile-dyeing methods for the public to view until June 11. “Katazome Today: Migrations of a Japanese Art” features works from nine different artists across the world, including Japan, Germany, Australia and right here on the West Coast.

Mind over batter

On Feb. 27, I attempted the Alpha-Bet Challenge at AB Crepes in downtown Bellingham. The challenge requires participants to eat 26 plain crepes with a partner in the span of one hour. This is easier said than done.
