While scrolling through Facebook over the weekend, a few posts caught my eye. It appeared that many of my Facebook friends were vacationing on a tropical island and jealousy hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought maybe I had missed the flash sale to fly to Acapulco and sip on a tropical drink out of a pineapple!

There were many pictures flooding Facebook, pictures of my friends holding a beautiful, exotic pineapple drink. A drink that is usually only found on tropical islands. I was green with envy and wanted to fly to an island and sip my pineapple drink!

I was sad, knowing a beach vacation was not in my near future, I knew I wouldn't be partaking in any umbrella, pineapple concoctions... That is until I found out I didn't have to fly away to enjoy one! That's right! I discovered that those crazy Coladas were made right here in Pasco!

"Pina Coladas Acapulco Style" is new to town and is turning heads! This past weekend they were set up at the Columbia Park Marina, where they were slinging their Acapulco-style Pina Coladas (all of their beverages are non-alcoholic). That was the reason my Facebook feed was spattered with so many intriguing tropical drink pictures.

This is a family-owned business who have done large events throughout Washington State. They recently settled in Pasco and have decided to bring a little tropic to the Pacific Northwest. Upcoming events will be the Mariachi & More Festival in Columbia Park, on June 26, from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. On July 4 they will be in Othello for their independence celebration and then they will be mixing it up for the Water Follies in July.  We wish them much luck in their new business adventure and I can't wait to get my pineapple drink and imagine I am on the sandy beach.

SEE INSIDE Abandoned Battery Russell at Fort Stevens

If you're a history buff, this is a must-see at Fort Stevens State Park in Oregon. Battery Russell, which was named after General David A. Russell, who was killed in action during the Civil War, took about a year to build in 1904. Fort Stevens came under attack when a Japanese submarine shot 17 shells near this site. There were no injuries or direct hits. Keep scrolling and take a tour and then plan a trip to see it for yourself.
