An interest in nutrition and healing through food led Tressa Yellig to her love of bone broth—one of the year’s buzziest food trends—which she extols as being “really powerful medicine” because of its high concentration of nutrients. A traditional food (one that has been consumed for centuries), bone broth is also known simply as stock, bouillon or broth, although they are not all exactly the same. “The biggest difference between them all is [that] the original intention of bone broth is not to be a flavor base, but to be a food supplement.”

Macefield Music Festival Rocks Ballard
(9/30 to 10/2, times vary) The Macefield Music Festival, named for Edith Macefield, the elderly Ballard resident who gained national notoriety for refusing to sell her modest home to developers and became an icon of resistance, features a slew of local performers including Mindie Lind, Shelby Earl and Industrial Revelation.

Opening in August after a remodel and revitalizing, the Smith Tower experience (including the Provisions general store on the first floor, tours and the Temperance bar) has already become a hit. So much so that it has expanded its hours, with the store now open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and 35th-floor Observatory Temperance cafe and bar from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. (The last elevator up leaves at 8 p.m., so don’t miss it.) We recently stopped by to enjoy the experience personally, and below are three impressions from the visit.

I first met Dave Lichterman of Windy City Pie nearly a year ago, when I was researching this story about a blitz of new pizza spots in Seattle. By now, you’ve probably tried one of his pies: beastly Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas with a signature burnt-cheese crust.

You’ve likely stumbled upon it, nearly concealed beneath the brush in Leschi Park, just south of Madrona, and dismissed it as another old, forgotten bridge.

Sure, you can do the typical haunted house thing, but why not check out some outdoor Halloween happenings away from town?
