Local Artist Spotlight : Karrie O'Neill

When it comes to music...make mine LIVE. Sure a big concert with a light show and choreographed dancing can be exciting but to me, nothing compares to listening to a singer/songwriter perform at an intimate venue. There's no special effects to hide behind, so you better have talent. 

I first heard the talented Karrie O'Neill play at a downtown winery and was immediately smitten with her sound. Her honest and alluring originals were worthy of airplay and her covers incorporated her own style. More often than not, I liked her version better than the one from the artist who made it famous. After becoming a semi regular attendee at her gigs, I appreciated how she genuinely connected with each and every person and radiated gratitude for them coming out to listen to her. Fast forward 5 years and countless gigs later, Karrie has airplay on KPND Radio and is embarking on a National tour.  Yep, I called it. Okay, maybe we all did. 

Don't call it a farewell tour but you can catch her playing at the Bing Crosby Theater before she hits the road.

Karrie's story is about second chances, do-overs and having the courage to take them. 

The popular singer/songwriter proves that dreams don't have an expiration date. Karrie found her purpose by answering a calling to a fiery passion that time couldn't extinguish. 

Making it in the music industry takes strength and courage. It can be challenging to shut out naysayers, thoughts of probability or Vegas odds. It also takes encouragement from others to realize that you have something special to share. Because of those true believers she's gained the confidence to admit she's got something pretty darn good happening right now. We don't always know how things will play out but Karrie knows her supporters have been essential to her journey and is excited about what's next. 

At this moment Karrie is at the door to her destiny, discovering she's right where she's suppose to be. 

The Inland Northwest is cheering her on as she's ready to embark on a national tour. And hey, we get to say, we knew her when.

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage!" Used in the 1928 presidential campaign, and attributed to President Herbert Hoover, the idea of a car in every garage planted a seed that took root. Over the years, along with it came the idea of the spacious house with a yard, the white picket fence and the happy, quiet life in suburban America.
Fast forward to 2018, and nowadays trading in th…
