Eye On | Integrity Piercing: Piercing parlor puts professionalism first

Integrity Piercing, tucked away from the main road at 1207 N. Wenatchee Ave., shirks a lot of piercing studio stereotypes. Bright, warm lights, jewelry displays, and neutral colors greet clients in the reception room. But it’s what goes on in the back that really sets Integrity apart.

Eye On | Family friendly and fresh fries at Gustav’s

If you go to Gustav’s, get the fries. There are a lot of things to like about Gustav’s, a lot of other popular dishes you can try, but at the very least you must get the fries. Hand-cut every morning, cooked fresh, and served in a generous mound, they’re worth braving the occasional floods of tourists.

Eye On | On a roll: Blue Flame takes a fresh approach

For Xiu Calvin Chen, co-owner at Blue Flame Asian Bistro, quality comes first. Homemade sauces and dressings, fresh vegetables and sushi-grade seafood come together in the little restaurant at 307 Valley Mall Parkway to offer dishes from anywhere from Korea to China to Japan.

Tiny hidden treasures: Chocolatiers fill tiny shop with bites of hand-made heaven

A rich brown color and perfectly round, the nine-piece box of bite-sized sweets looks like a chocolate itself — save for the dark brown bow perched neatly on top. A best-seller at Schocolat, the little box has an array of chocolates nestled inside, with flavors like earl gray and grapefruit and classics like coconut. Every single one has been handmade in the little kitchen at the back of the store at 843 Front St. in Leavenworth.

AdventureWenatchee: Our outdoor assets are their business

Living in North Central Washington, it’s easy to take for granted the landscape around us. From sloping sage-covered hills, to steep, snowy peaks and glistening lakes, to winding trails along the riverside.
Bella Bistro

Serving up only the best: Bistro makes ‘coffee that tastes like cofee’ and homemade eats

Bella Bistro has had a lot of different identities over the past four years. Before it turned into a bistro in 2011, the little building at 317 Orondo Ave. housed an auto repair shop. When Owner Flint Hartwig bought it, he intended to turn it into a drive-through coffee stand. But by the time its doors opened in the spring of 2011, it was decidedly a bistro, serving coffee, breakfast and lunch.

Distill, my heart: Former chef uses cooking knowledge and tricks of the trade to learn all about making hard alcohol

When you consider the family history of It’s 5 owner Colin Levi, and his wife and accounts manager Carol Levi, it’s not entirely surprising that they would find themselves managing a craft distillery. Both had great-grandparents that boot-legged spirits in the 1920s. In fact, it was boot-legging that brought Carol Levi’s family to the Wenatchee Valley.
