How're ya feelin'? I was born and raised right here in Yakima. Though I moved away for about 10 years I found my way back and glad I did. I love to cheerlead new restaurants and businesses coming to town. Also a fan of craft beer, being we live in the hop capital of the world. #ShopLocal #DrinkLocal I have three amazing kids, love breakfast cereal and am a huge retro gamer. I love new video games, too, but have a deep appreciation for the classics on systems like NES and Sega Genesis.

If You Think the Drunkest City in Washington is Yakima, You’re Wrong
Every so often we get lists for worst drivers, best buildings, craziest schools, or whatever, all listed state by state. We have a lot of hops in the Yakima valley. 75% of the hops used for beer in the US come from our backyard so I was wondering what the drunkest city in Washington state might be. I didn't really think it'd be Yakima but if it was I wouldn't've been surprised. As it turns out, no

Dear Alaska Air, I love to travel. I find myself flying out of YKM several times a year. Yes, the flight is early but landing in Seattle gives me enough time to catch any connecting flight I need.
