Summertime, and the sippin’ is easy. It’s July, which means Drink Up Week is right around the corner. From July 25-31, we’re collaborating with Intentionalist to celebrate the best drinks around town + partner with local companies to give you special deals. It’s definitely a glass half-full kind of situation.

Thirsty to know where to go? We’ll release the full list of collabs ahead of Drink Up Week — but for now, here are a few of the participating locations we’re excited about.

We’ll also be pouring into the Seattle beverage scene with cheers-worthy newsletter content (we know you already subscribe, but if you don’t — here you go). Get ready for:

  • A happy hour guide
  • History of local dive bars
  • Seattle coffee crawl

We like to think this is a two-way street. That’s why we want you to help us celebrate. If you own, run, or work for a place with great drinks, get things shaking by filling out this form. You can even choose your destiny with any or all of these ideas, and we’ll send readers your way.

  • Create a cocktail
  • Name a latte
  • Release a special or discount

Business participants (and readers) are encouraged to donate to the local food bank of their choice, since many are in great need of resources right now. Suggestions include Ballard Food Bank, White Center Food Bank, U District Food Bank, and Rainier Valley Food Bank.

Last call. We want to hear from you — as a consumer. What’s your go-to beverage? Which drink is best buds with your credit card? You can help inform our writing (and maybe another deal or two) by taking this survey. Choose up to three of these 10 categories:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Smoothies + Juices
  • Kombucha
  • Milkshakes
  • Seltzer
  • Wine
  • Beer
  • Cocktails
  • Mocktails

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #DrinkUpWeek on social media, and tag @ourSEAtoday and @intentionalist_ for a chance to get featured. We can’t wait to see what you’re slurpin’.
