Where to Celebrate Father’s Day

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on June 17, 2015

Let’s face it, Father’s Day is only a few days away and you’re still struggling with what to buy your dad to let him know you appreciate how much he has done for you. You know the classic tie or golf club isn’t going to do it and there’s no use asking for hints. He says he doesn’t want anything! So, rather than getting your dad another knick-knack or two that might just end up collecting dust, we’ve found some fun ways to spend some quality time with your father doing what he loves in Seattle.

Four Ways to Beat the Seattle Heat

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on July 2, 2014

The lazy days of summer have descended on Seattle, and while the Emerald City is fortunate enough to escape the scorching temperatures that hit much of the rest of the country, it doesn’t mean that we don’t experience the occasional heat wave. Here are some of the classic ways to stay cool during the hottest days of the year in Seattle.

Splish Splash

If there’s anything synonymous with summertime, it’s swimming pools, splash parks, beaches, and even the old fashioned slip n’ slide. Seattle has plenty of options when it comes to getting wet and staying cool during the hotter months. Spend an afternoon at one of the many wading pools and splash pads if you have little ones, or rent a kayak at the Northwest Outdoor Center and explore Puget Sound. Read the rest »

Five Gifts to Make With Your Kids for Father’s Day

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on June 9, 2014

Recent polls have shown that dads aren’t as excited about the traditional tie, socks, or power tools for Father’s Day as advertisers would have you believe.  In fact, what most dads want for Father’s Day is the chance to spend more time with their families.

Kids can make gifts for Dad with his help or with the help of another family member.  Here are five DIY gift ideas dads will love – because they come from the heart:

  1. Picture Puzzles
  2. Print out a photo of Dad and the kids.  Lay out a row of Popsicle sticks, glue the photo to the sticks, and cut the sticks apart.  Then, jumble up the sticks and put them in a decorated envelope.  The kids can help Dad solve his gift puzzle, or they can watch with excitement as he figures it out himself.

  3. Color a Mug
  4. A plain coffee mug and permanent markers allow kids to make great gifts for Father’s Day or other events.  Simply have kids write or draw a personalized design on the mug for Dad, then pop it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes to “set” the ink.  Hand-wash only! Read the rest »

Five Summer Destinations Even Seattle Residents Can’t Explain

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on May 29, 2014

Seattle TouristsSeattle is home to a number of tourist attractions, including the Pike Place Market, numerous museums, and the ever-present Space Needle.  But just as the city has a reputation for “weird” residents, it also has a reputation for “weird” tourist destinations – places and sights even Seattle residents can’t always explain.

Whether you’re looking to get off the beaten path this summer or to entertain some out-of-town visitors with more than just baseball tickets and a sculpture park, check out these five haunts:

Archie McPhee

Located on N. 45th Street, Archie McPhee might be the most “novel” novelty shop in the country, filled to the rafters with things you never knew you needed and can’t live without.  Does your cat need a unicorn horn?  Is your ordinary adhesive tape suffering a tragic shortage of bacon designs?  Archie McPhee has your kids – and the kid in all of us – covered.

10 Interesting and Strange Facts about Seattle

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on April 29, 2014

Seattle Personal InjuryIt’s safe to say that Seattleites are proud of the unique lifestyle and culture found here in the Emerald City. When many people think of Seattle, their mind inevitably goes to unending rain, abundant coffee shops, grunge music, and the Space Needle. And while these things are a part of our daily lives, there’s so much more that makes up the interesting and strange city of Seattle.

  1. One of the most photographed landmarks in Seattle is giant pink elephant-shaped sign advertising the Elephant Super Car Wash. This sign has been in use since 1956, rotating and illuminating the night sky at the corner of Battery Street and Denny Way.
  2. Next to Venice, Italy, Seattle has the second highest number of glassblowing studios in the entire world.
  3. We’ve turned litter into art with the gum wall in Post Alley. It’s exactly what it sounds like. People began sticking their chewing gum to the wall just outside a theatre and the next thing you know, the entire wall is covered. It may be gross, but over the years, with so many people participating, the wall has gained a kind of street art charm. Read the rest »
