Well, we survived the nastiest winter blast most of us have ever experienced in the Puget Sound area. Let's pretend that's all behind us and spring is almost here. (I said, "let's pretend." Who knows? It'll probably snow again!) Anyway, there are outdoorsy events this weekend that'll get you psyched for spring, and there are several wine-and-chocolate-based events that'll provide the perfect antidote to the reality of February in the PNW. Have fun out there!
