Macklemore Will Sing "My Oh My," His Tribute to Dave Niehaus, at Mariner's Opener

Macklemore at last year's Seattle magazine Spotlight Award photo shoot.

My love for Capitol Hill rapper Macklemore (aka Ben Haggerty) is no secret--in fact I gave him a 2010 Spotlight Award last September. Since then he's only been gaining in acclaim, and tomorrow, he'll sing "My Oh My," his touching tribute to Dave Niehaus, at the Mariner's Opening Game. Go Ben! (Oh, and go Ms, too.)

If you want to learn more about this local superstar before he hits the field, read my profile from last year. Read more »

"Poquitos" is about as fitting a name for Capitol Hill's new Mexi-palace as “Tiny” is for a 300-pound man. I got the chance to soak it all in at the pre-opening party on Friday, and nothing owners Deming Maclise and James Weimann (the powerhouse duo behind Bastille Cafe & Bar) have done with their latest project is small.
