The Killer Cocktails podcast marries true crime with adult libations—and makes you laugh while doing it
If you visit the Killer Cocktails website about now, one of the first photos you'll find will be of hosts Shawndreya "Dreya" Garliepp and Jackie DeGear, each of their hands duct-taped around 40-ounce bottles of beer.

A Community for Makers

Saturday Market in Redmond offers pop-up storefronts for crafters and entrepreneurs

Magical Additions

At the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, staging shows outdoors brings an element of the unknown
It's almost dark when a crow shoots across the sky, making its signature "caw" during a pause in the dialogue of "Macbeth."
