INDULGE A SWEET TOOTH

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE

“Kurtwood Farms has a little herd of Jersey cows on Vashon Island and sells ice cream from Kurt Farm Shop on Capitol Hill. It’s a little microcosm of what Seattle means — local, organic, sustainable — but it’s also about pleasure!”

“I’m the unlikeliest snowboarder in the world. ... It’s such a dude-bro activity. My son insisted I learn when I was 40. Now I love the mountains! We go to Crystal (Mountain Resort) and Mt. Baker nearby.”

BEST PLACE FOR

A CUP OF COFFEE “I’d like to namecheck a few indies like Victrola, Zeitgeist and Caffè Vita. But I love (a) ... Starbucks where nobody wants to talk about my column, so I can write there.”

When I moved here and asked, ‘What’s awesome about this place?’ everyone said, ‘The mountains are beautiful.’ I was like, ‘They’re not in Seattle!’ I really resisted. It took 14 years, but now I can’t get out there enough.”

MUSIC VENUE “I’m a fan of Benaroya Hall because my husband is active with the Seattle Symphony orchestra as a volunteer and supporter. I like musicals and pretty music. So Terry takes me when it’s Strauss and leaves me home for Philip Glass.” 200 University St.; 206-215-4800; seattlesymphony.org
