Puyallup & Sumner Visit Olympia!
This summer BSC featured three classes with food and beverage establishments from the Puyallup and Sumner area. Two are completed and only one more chance remains to highlight this fun and interesting "neck-of-the-woods." After you've attended this final delicious event and it's a typical summer day in Olympia (the weather is so-so and you're wondering what to do), you'll want to hop in your car and take a day trip adventure to Puyallup and beyond!
