Nordstrom’s New Cocktail Bar Habitant

photo cred | Downtown Bellevue

A couple of weeks ago, I stopped by the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in Bellevue Square only to find that they were constructing a cocktail bar right in the middle of the store. At first, I thought I might have been in the wrong place, but then I remembered that Nordstrom is probably the most innovative retailer right now and that this is really no surprise at all. Habitant looked cool. It was swanky, trendy, and the type of place I would probably want to go to. My friend Jodie who was with me at the time was a little shocked by the idea and nervous that drinking while shopping would lead to some serious damage to her wallet.

Habitant opened last Friday and is now serving up drinks and little bites! To read the full details, click here.

Microsoft Celebrates New Store Opening in Bellevue w/ Miley Cyrus Concert

If you’re trying to figure out what Microsoft and Miley Cyrus have in common, you may not be able to wrap your head around it. I’m still trying to figure out why these two things are even in the same headline together. On November 18, Microsoft will open their new store within Bellevue Square, but they don’t seem too concerned with making themselves the center of attention. At 10 AM when the store opens, the first 1,000 people to visit the store will receive a pair of passes to an exclusive in-store concert with teenage sensation Miley Cyrus.

What. How BIG is this store?

I’m not going to lie, I freaked out a little bit. I’m not a huge fan of Miley, but I am a fan of Hannah Montana. Did anyone happen to catch the newest episode Sunday night? Not embarrassed to say that I cried at the end of it. Just sayin’.
