Bainbridge getting its own glossy magazine

A local start-up magazine aims to celebrate all the good things about island living.

This summer, Bainbridge entrepreneur Michael Cyger is planning to unveil Bainbridge Island Magazine, a glossy lifestyle quarterly that was inspired, in part, by all the “bad news” the island generates.

Here’s what Cyger has to say about the mag at another of his properties, bainbridgeisland.com:

“We all moved to Bainbridge Island for one or more reasons: the top-rated schools, the quaint downtown, the educated community, the welcoming people, the arts, the rural appeal, the list goes on and on…it’s a great place to getaway from the hectic city or raise a family. Whatever your reason, it is tarnished by bad news that has been rampant in our community. What we need is a way to celebrate what we have.”

Bainbridge magazine, he adds, will “focus on the positive. Only good news.”

It’ll have stories about island homes, gardens, arts, restaurants, organically grown food and “of course – a focus on sustainability.”

“All of the reasons we moved here,” Cyger says.

“This will be the magazine you are proud to show your family that live in a different state, your friends that come to visit in the summer, and that you will be proud to leave out on your coffee table or in your business waiting room….”

The magazine will be mailed to every household and business on the island. On newsstands, it’ll cost about $5.
