Britt Thorson
Managing Editor
Britt is Seattle Refined's Editor and writes mainly for the Lifestyle section, though she dabbles from time to time in Travel, Eat & Drink and Fashion (when she's feeling daring).

Britt is a passionate Seattleite who loves to write, talk, eat and sleep (among some other things). She left this wonderful city for college at USC, and quickly moved back to the Pacific NorthBest as soon as she graduated. She’s a little obsessed and will defend this city to the death (it doesn't actually rain that much here! Chicago and NYC get more than us each year! Geez).

An all around communications junkie, Britt’s dabbled in broadcast journalism, radio, talent publicity, weeklies, and strategic planning firms. Outside of writing, her passions are kids and animals - she volunteers with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and spends ridiculous amounts of time with her dog Bella. She is also a bit of a wanderlust, loves to travel and bring stories back with her to Seattle Refined.

When Britt isn’t talking or typing, she’s probably watching Law and Order: SVU, trying to get friends to go out dancing, or hauling away on the elliptical.

Lifestyle This is why we climb This is why we climb

This morning, we join hundreds of other locals to climb the Space Needle for Base 2 Space: Seattle’s Most Iconic Stair Climb to benefit Fred Hutch.

We joked a lot about the climb; how crazy we are to participate, how hard it’s going to be, and how sore we will be tomorrow.

Eat & Drink Sweet Week is back! Sweet Week is back!

You may remember last year when we covered “Sweet Week”, local sweet makers’ response to Seattle’s ever popular Restaurant Week and Dine Around Seattle.
