And the Space Needle’s Golden Anniversary Beer is…

At the Space Needle’s beer tasting event Tuesday night, 10 local breweries offered up free tastings of beer, brewed just for the evening’s competition. Attendees, a diverse crowd described as “foodies”, were asked to vote on each beer, judging on overall impact, appearance, aroma, “surprising flavors” and innovation. The votes would be tallied and a winner selected by the end of the evening. Read more »

Tackle the 4 Food Groups of Super Bowl Sunday

There's nothing worse than having to move during the Super Bowl. One should remain planted and copiously fed; that's basic Super Bowl protocol. (Exceptions will be made for pit stops and trips to the keg-erator, of course). Once I've claimed my spot on the couch there's no way I'm getting up unless a toddler is bleeding or the smoke alarm goes off. So I prepare ahead of time, which means dips, chips and the sandwiches of my youth, all of which are extremely easy to prepare at home, or buy locally, depending on your pregame energy level.

PBS' 'Check, Please!' Signs Excellent Local Host

KCTS 9 announced today that they have selected local food and gardening expert Amy Pennington to host the Seattle version of Check, Please!, a reality TV concept that lets everyday folks play food critic for a day.

From Cody Ellerd Bay's original post about the show:

If you’ve never seen the show, which also runs in Chicago, San Francisco, Phoenix, Kansas City and South Florida, it operates like this: One person nominates his or her favorite restaurant, and then two other people are sent there to review it. After their anonymous visits, the reviewers get together to discuss their meal and rate the restaurant. They cover everything from the latest hot spots with superstar chefs to the hole-in-the-wall that’s been serving you your favorite fish and chips for years.

I met Amy Pennington fairly recently at a memorable fundraiser for Seattle Central Culinary Academy (although, before my time, Seattle mag covered her gardening exploits in several issues).

She was responsible for mixing cocktails and preparing dessert at the party. Both were delicious, but what I remember most was her spunky personality and great sense of humor. I predict her presence on the show will ground the conversation of Check, Please! in territory local food lovers can really appreciate.

More about Amy, from the press release, after the jump:

Seattle Mag's Signature Cocktail: The SoDo Shaker

Preparing the February issue was more challenging than a typical press cycle, thanks to the incessant ear-splitting, nausea-inducing piledriving going on at the construction site across the street from Seattle mag's SoDo headquarters.

Just imagine someone three cubicles down from you banging a filing cabinet with a shovel nonstop for 8 hours, and perhaps you can see where we're coming from. Read more »
