The Craft Beer Passport is a Sudsy Perk for Attendees

There are lots of reasons to plan a gathering in Bellevue—beauty, hospitality, a mix of urban and outdoor adventures, terrific venues. For attendees who are beer aficionados, there’s a new perk that is certain to be highly appealing: the free Puget Sound Craft Beer Passport. Designed to celebrate the local world-class craft brewing scene, the exclusive mobile passport is a guide to a collection of curated craft brewery experiences at dozens of participating locations. Among the taprooms are Flying Lion, Jellyfish, Cloudburst, No Boat, Outer Planet and Old Stove—each as unique and colorful as its name. visitbellevuewa.com/things-to-do/puget-sound-craft-beer-passport

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career. Promoted to senior vice president and chief sales officer at Visit Seattle in September 2021, Saling pulls from this personal appreciation to plug people into the region’s array of venues, natural landscapes, and everything in between.


Comfortable, familiar, and adorned with the color tones and tapestries of Peru, Portland’s Andina restaurant, housed in a historic onetime abattoir and warehouse in the city’s Pearl District, serves up modern Peruvian cuisine. 


Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
