Taking in the sunset while cruising around the Puget Sound is a magicall experience on its own. But when you add a certain hint of mystery to the mix it becomes even more enjoyable. Now you can combine the best of both experiences by joining Argosy and their modern version of Murder Mystery Theatre. If you like to be a part of the show, then this is for you! Your evening of "who-done-it" intrigue is set in an interactive theater-type atmosphere, full of improvisational comedy and audience interaction.†It will always keep you guessing!† Their professional actors assimilate themselves with all of the guests as they help advance the plotline, and a detective leads the investigation to help you loosely tie clues together and solve the mystery during your cruise.

Deck the Halls


If you're like most of us...the urge to remodel or do some home decorating this time of year starts to come alive. Maybe it has something to do with all the dark and dreary days leading from fall into winter time.

Whatever your motivating factor may be - the range of change can vary from person to person. Sometimes we can just replace a rug or two, or maybe add a new window treatment or we can simply throw on a dab of paint here or there to calm the creative juices inside. Other times, we need major changes or home improvements to totally soothe the senses within. When the urge stikes, "seize the day" make that jolt of energy count. You'll find great ideas and a wonderful selection of our hand picked contractors, designers and specialty services by checking out our DESIGN SHOWCASE. To make it easy for you - we have included a list of companies providing outstanding services here in the Puget Sound area -as well as around the state. So, what are you waiting for, deck the halls and experience the new year in all its glory.
