Sears Is Closing 3 Stores in Washington: Is Yakima Valley on the List? (YES.)

Two Sears stores are closing up shop in Central Washington. Is Yakima Valley on the list? In a short answer, YES. It probably doesn't come as a surprise though. Some of us have seen the writing on the wall for a while now. It looks like the Sears & Roebuck Company of yesteryear is taking a new direction. I am old enough to remember being so excited getting my hands on a Sears Catalog when I was a kid! Did you get excited, too? I would always flip to the "Back to School" section for clothes. I never got any of them because my mom always did our clothes shopping at the Goodwill or gave me "new" stuff to wear from my friends' hand-me-down clothes, but still. I loved daydreaming about wearing those Sears catalog clothes!

I mean, sure, you can get a pedicure at any nail salon in town but I'm talking about a place that goes the extra mile. I'm talking about the foot spa experience.

Jump on The Tiki Train at These Two Bars in Downtown Yakima

Tiki Nights are the new 'It' thing in the downtown Yakima bar scene! Who knew!. I first saw the swanky downtown bar and restaurant, E.Z. Tiger (222 E Chestnut Ave), mentioned in Sip Magazine's online blurb about their tiki drinks. It turns out my friend, Christian, was highlighted in the Sip article for her recipe concoction for the Tiki Tiger beverage (get the delicious recipe here). Her drink has stuff in it that I've never heard of like, Suntory Whisky Toki and yuzu juice, among other ingredients like grapefruit and pomegranate juices mixed with a honey simple syrup.

Here comes the July 4th holiday and following right behind are high summer gas prices say officials from GasBuddy. They say drivers will be facing the most expensive gas ever this year during the upcoming holiday. However GasBuddy officials say the news isn't all that bad. They say U.S. gas prices are expected to drop "10 to 20 cents by Independence Day.
