Celebrate Pink This Summer

In this issue of ShowCase Magazine we celebrate summer with a “pink inspired” issue.  Summer is here and that means longer days and pink accompaniments to celebrate the season.  Whether you plan to cruise to the car show, dine al fresco or enjoy a local travel, we invite you to celebrate the season in pink.

Speaking of outdoor pleasures, have you ever taken in a pink sunset from a sailboat – where the skyline is filled with rose color as it sets on the horizon?  We are pleased to feature the historic SSS Odyssey.  Known as Tacoma’s own Tall Ship, the 90-foot sailboat is recognized nationally as a premier youth sailing vessel.

Enjoy the pink color embodied in a regional favorite, the Pacific Northwest salmon.  Chefs Tom Douglas and Thierry Rautureau will present a tantalizing taste of our favorite fish at this year’s Gig Harbor Wine and Food Festival.  We share the dynamic culinary duo’s perspective on creating dishes that speak to our lifestyle and delight the most discerning palates.

Naturally, our story on local dining and shopping fresh produce at farmers markets inspires good health and the local economy.  As follows, our wellness feature is “flush” with approachable sustainable lifestyle tips to improve women’s health.

Check out our pink calendar for local entertainment and cultural events and don’t miss the scoop on our favorite summer destinations for local travel.  We wish you a summer abundant in purposeful living and memories, some of them pink influenced, to celebrate.
