Dine Around Seattle is a little bit more fun than Seattle Restaurant Week, in that the restaurant isn’t limited to the three-course prix-fixe format of appetizer, entree, and dessert. Instead, Dine Around Seattle allows a little bit more flexibility, so that the restaurants can show off the things that they specialize in. After all, Dine Around Seattle is intended to support local businesses and what better way to do that than by letting the restaurants show off their best?

According to the program’s website, “For fifteen years, Dine Around Seattle has connected tens of thousands of residents with the best of Seattle’s restaurants, contributing millions to our local economy and strengthening our community.”

Dinner at participating restaurants ranges from $22 or $33, to $44 depending on the restaurant and their offering. Chandler’s Crabhouse, Vestal and Flying Fish are all participating,

Dine Around Seattle continues Sunday to Thursday each week through March 23rd, so visit these SLU restaurants and enjoy a discounted meal, while supporting local businesses. Enjoy!

It’s almost time to lace up those running shoes and sign up for the annual Hot Chocolate 15/5k run! This year’s yummy and fun event kicks off on Sunday, March 5th at Seattle Center How’s that for a great way to spend the first Sunday-Funday of March, both for seasoned runners and first-timers who aren’t afraid of a challenge!

The fun begins bright and early at 6:45a.m. with the 5K and the 15k starts at 7:55a.m. Race participants can expect a fun, well organized and challenging race through the heart of beautiful Downtown Seattle (hills and all!), a fabulous SWAG bag of goodies to take home, of course, delicious chocolate. Talk about motivation to finish strong!

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend your Sunday while getting a great workout, consider signing up for this once-a-year event. The challenge is worth it to get to the Post Race Party where runners will enjoy music, a family friendly environment and a ‘finisher’s mug’ filled with hot chocolate, chocolate fondue and delightfully dippable treats. Don’t count the calories, you will have more than earned this chocolate indulgence!

The Hot Chocolate Run isn’t just a great way to spend a day off. The Hot Chocolate Run is partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities, helping to provide a home-away-from-home for children and the families of children being treated at Seattle Children’s’ Hospital, at little to no cost to the families. A portion of the proceeds from signing up for this race will go to this outstanding cause, helping to make a real difference in our community.

Not into running or chocolate? That’s fine! But be aware, this race will take place in Downtown Seattle and along many main roads and thoroughfares, so you will want to plan ahead for any travel on that day. Take a look at the map (left) to see the route and read the chart below for a street closure timeline, to help you plan your day.

This event is great to do with friends, family or even by yourself. You’ll probably leave with new friends after a little friendly competition! This event brings together people from all over the city and state, so get out there, mix, mingle and help build a wonderful feeling of community in our fair city. Sprint into Springtime at this fabulous annual event, get a good sweat on and maybe even make some new friends….oh and eat chocolate! Do we really need to sell you on this?

According to an American Psychological Association survey, 72 percent of Americans have felt stressed about money within the past month, with half reporting that the stress significantly impacted their quality of sleep.

In fact, another recent study found that four out of five Seattleites believe they would be happier if they felt more confident in their personal finances, over half of are not able to invest more in their passions because of a financial obstacle, and less than one-third feel confident when thinking about their personal finances.* With so many people in our nation, and even our own community, feeling this way, how can we go about mapping out the right path to personal finance success?

Enter Capital One. Through its innovative Capital One Cafés and the “Banking ReimaginedSM Tour” that will be making a stop in Westlake Park this weekend, Capital One is aiming to redesign the banking experience by making things simple, straightforward, and built around empowering people to feel more confident in their relationship with their money.

“Personal finance has evolved with our digital economy,” says Lia Dean, Head of Capital One Cafés. “We want to create experiences that fit more naturally into people’s lives. And that really comes to life in two ways–innovative products and digital tools, and also the human connection we know people still crave.”

Soon, two new Seattle-area Capital One Cafés will open to the public. The Cafes, one located in South Lake Union and another in Bellevue, will join Cafes across the country, including locations in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Richmond, San Francisco, and St. Cloud, with plans to open in South Florida later this year.

Located at 333 Westlake Avenue, the Capital One Café in South Lake Union will offer more than 12,000 square feet of space for banking, meeting and socializing—with three nooks, two meeting rooms, and four on-premise ATMs. The location at 418 Bellevue Way NE in Bellevue will be 7,800 square feet and also include three nooks, two meeting rooms, and four ATMs. The Capital One Café is a place where people can recharge their bank accounts, devices, and lives while learning new ways to manage their finances, try out new digital and financial tools, or simply grab a great cup of coffee or local pastry.

“Our Capital One Cafés are about solving our visitor’s financial problems and helping them reach their money goals,” Dean adds. “We started the journey two years ago talking to Americans about their money and we learned three big things. First, most of the time they’re banking digitally. Second, while technology makes their money lives easier, it hasn’t solved their stress over their financial lives. And lastly, they don’t know where to turn to relieve that money stress.”

The fact that Capital One has broadened its repertoire into this nontraditional space for banking should come as little surprise. The company has been at the forefront of digital banking since it entered the industry, and the Cafés are one way they are reimagining banking. At the Cafés, customers will be able to learn about award-winning accounts that offer no fees or minimums, while engaging with interactive screens that feature fun, helpful money content and demo bars that showcase the latest digital tools that can help you better manage your money. Capital One is even launching a first-of-its-kind Money Coaching program, a complimentary personalized service designed to connect your values to your money so you can better plan a path for your future financial goals to give you the confidence to make it happen.

Capital One is also launching a ten-market, consumer-facing tour starting this month.

 photo Facebook_Pre-Event_zpszugcbbg3.jpg

The “Banking ReimaginedSM Tour” gives a glimpse of one of the ways Capital One is changing how people think about their money and money goals. Like the Cafés, the tour is designed to connect with and guide consumers along their personal financial journey. The traveling tour will introduce consumers to innovative services and programs designed to deliver financial empowerment in compelling, nontraditional, and technology-forward ways. It features a state-of-the-art, 54-foot trailer housing a smart, personalized and digital experience open to the public, including:

  • Touchscreens that allow you to prioritize personal values and goals, demonstrating how your outlook shapes the way you view money.
  • An augmented reality experience with 3-D holograms in real space and time that brings your financial goals to life. Video selfie booths where you can record a message to your future self as a reminder of your money goals.

In the end, these efforts echo one of Capital One’s core beliefs: Personal finance doesn’t need to be stressful. Both the tour and the Capital One Cafés hope to make that goal a reality.

WHEN: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 17 and 18.

WHERE: Westlake Park 401 Pine St., Seattle.
