The macaron maven has reprised their popular "bomb pop" flavor, which takes inspiration from the iconic red, white, and blue-striped popsicle and features blue raspberry, cherry, and lime flavors.

Alternatively, create your own red, white, and blue macaron pack by choosing from the brand's red (raspberry Chardonnay), white (vanilla bean or salted caramel), and blue (toffee or toasted coconut) cookies.

Since fireworks are a no-go in Seattle this year due to wildfires, University District's Northwest-themed rooftop bar is going all out with a "Red, White, and Views" bash featuring live DJs and cocktails garnished with real sparklers, flaming citrus, and even incense. Not only that, but they'll also have a bar dedicated to "all things sparkling," from champagne cocktail slushies to magnum bottles to bottle sparklers. Oyster specials, including raw oysters and "camp-cooked" oysters with spiced brown butter, lemon and aioli, round out the special menu.
