On March 10th, the Brick held the 24th Annual Spittoon Races and Nautical Ball. Racers come from all around to share in the festivities and for the chance to take home the title. Below is a brief highlight video from this year’s event.
The snowfall that greeted Roslyn residents on Saturday morning wasn’t enough to damper the Second Annual ARRF Doggie Easter Egg hunt. About 20 dogs showed up to participate in the costume contest and hunt for treats in the field just off of Pennsylvania Avenue. The event is a fun way to drive awareness around animal adoption and to help raise money to support ARRF’s commitment to the care and welfare of companion animals in Upper Kittitas County.

It seems like anywhere you go in Roslyn, you can’t avoid hearing the name, “Stan the Man“. Perhaps it’s when someone has had one to many to drink and asks the barkeep to dial up Stan the Man. Or, when the community is holding an event that features music, and Stan the Man is called on to pull it together. Maybe it’s when you’re attending one of Roslyn or Cle Elum’s many open mic nights, where Stan the Man and his instruments take center stage. Whatever the case, you are sure to hear his name if you stick around long enough. As such, it was a real treat for us to catch up with him at Roslyn’s Sunday Market to find out more about his weekend designated driver services and his passion for music. If you wish to contact him, find him on Facebook, or just roll into one of Roslyn’s bars on a weekend and say “dial up Stan the Man!”
The Roslyn Brewing Company has been brewing quality German-style lagers since 1990. The Roslyn is a dark lager reminiscent of the original beers the Roslyn Brewery and Malting Company was brewing in the early 1900’s. The Brookside is a pale lager hopped predominantly with Yakima hops and tastes delicious on a hot summer day.
This memorial day weekend, we had the pleasure of meeting with Kent Larimer, Roslyn Brewing Company’s head brewer, to discuss the brewery and enjoy a beverage in the taphouse. We had a great time (as we always do) and enjoyed the beers and the conversations that accompanied them. The next time you’re in town for the weekend, be sure to stop the brewery to see the gang, enjoy a refreshing beer, or fill a growler to go (which is a popular option for Roslyn area campers).
On Saturday, March 12th, the Brick came alive for the 23rd Annual Water Spittoon Race & Nautical Ball. One hundred and eleven boats entered in all – with 73 boats filling out the wood category (other categories included paper, plastic, soap and experimental). The races kicked off at 1pm and continued into the early evening. Though competition was fierce and beer was flowing, good sportsmanship was a trait shared by all – ensuring that everyone had a great time regardless of how their boats were performing. A brief video of the event is available below:
It’s not uncommon to see dogs perform tricks for treats, but on Halloween day, the dogs get dressed to trick-or-treat in Roslyn. The weather was cooporative as the dogs of Roslyn showed off their costumes in this year’s Paws on Parade celebration. Check out the video to see a sample of the parades participating pooches.
