4 Fun Things: Funko POP!s, Cider, and More

Published March 2018


Welcome to this month’s installment of Lamoureux’s Four Fun Things, a small compilation of fun things to do and see around Everett, WA.

Give your day a little sparkle with one (or all!) of these quirky things around Everett.


1. Make Your Own Funko Pop

Don’t know the difference between a Dorbz and a doorknob? That’s okay; we don’t either.

But if you’ve got a Funko fan or playful kid in your life that needs a dose of fun look no further than the Custom POP! Figure station at Funko HQ (2802 Wetmore Ave., Everett, WA 98201).

Not only is going inside this funky building a treat, building a personalized POP! of your own will leave you and your chums feeling like true creators.

Each POP! is $15, and includes all the accessories you can fit on its body. So go ahead, give your Funko some neon pink hair and a strawberry ice cream cone.




2. Savor a Cider at Toggle’s

Looking for some weeknight fun? Mix things up with some taste-test experimentation at one of downtown Everett’s newest haunts, Toggle’s Bottle Shop (1420 Hewitt Ave., Everett, WA 98201)

You’re sure to find some goodies between their 600+ options of bottled drinks in their hall of refrigerators and over 20 beers and ciders on tap.

Mix and match a six pack to go, or hunker down for a game of cards while you and your comrades sip some sweet cider.

Currently on tap: Passion Statement Cider - a fascinating passion fruit-meets apple and pear cider.

3. Feast on Fish at Ray’s

An Everett classic, fish n’ chips from Ray’s Drive-In (1401 Broadway, Everett, WA 98201) with a side of fried mushrooms makes any day of the week a Friday.

Picture it: parking in their lot, passing your order through the tiny window to an Everett High School teen, then dropping down on the bright red indoor picnic table with a brown bag filled with greasy goodness.

Don’t forget the ketchup and chunky tartar sauce. Fun fact: Barb Lamoureux used to work here!




4. African Baskets for a Cause at J. Matheson’s

 You can count on J. Matheson Gifts, Kitchen and Gourmet (2615 Colby Ave., Everett, WA 98201) to have the one-of-a-kind gift you need for everyone in your life, and right now you can buy a gift that keeps on giving.

Take a peek at these brightly woven baskets made by the Blessing Basket Project.

Each one comes with a tag featuring the woman who made it with a tidbit about them. With prices varying from $30 to $60, you’re sure to find a piece that fits your fancy.

Pretty basket? Check. Shopping local? Check. For a good cause? Check. It’s a win, win, win.
