Today Intiman Theater announced big plans to relaunch its 40th season.

Actually, the theater just launched a pledge-drive in disguise.

The Intiman still has an unclear amount of debt to pay off (the Seattle Times reports it’s around a million). So the board has decided not to spend nor budget anything for future productions without raising those funds in advance. (Good call, dudes.) Read more »

Apples, pork, booze with character and baked goods with substance... I love the autumn calm before the holiday storm, when food is comforting and uber-seasonal without being too over the top. Here are a few of my favorite November eating events that tread the perfect line between reasonable human behavior and coming wonderfully unhinged.
