Have you seen the April issue of Seattle magazine yet? Drool!!
Not only do Allison Austin Scheff and Sara Dickerman walk you through the ideal places to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in their fun-to-read Best Restaurants coverage, there’s also the second annual Food Establishment list to devour and debate about.
Lemme tell you, this list was mighty carefully considered.
The Seattle-Bellevue Metropolitan Fashion Week is happening April 6 through 13, with an opening night event at Pratt Fine Arts Center and a closing gala at Chihuly Garden and Glass. Produced by fashion show producer and director Eduardo Khawam, the week’s festivities also includes a VIP reception at The Finerie and a Lean Goddess party at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue.
Built for Man designer Francisco Hernandez put on an amazing show at the Seattle Asian Art Museum on Tuesday, March 19. The crowd was attractive and well-heeled and the whole event felt very luxe, thanks to the gorgeous building, intriguing art and beautiful male models dressed in sleek, modern and impeccably made clothing.
In case anyone was trapped under a rock and didn't notice, this equal sign meme went viral on social media yesterday as Facebook users replaced their profile pictures with it to show support for marriage equality.
Last month West Seattle's own Metropolitan Market grocery bagger Andrew Borracchini, 18, claimed the hotly contested title of “Best Bagger” in 23 states—along with $10,000—in a bagging competition held as part of the National Grocer’s Association convention in Las Vegas.
Tonight (Monday, March 25) at 11:35 pm,Borracchini has a chance to show off his gleaming trophy (the “Golden Grocery Bag”), and perhaps his giant novelty check, on David Letterman’s star-worn stage during an appearance on the Late Show.
I’m a proud Taste Washington veteran, an old salt, you might even say. I was at the very first Taste, held in the cozy confines of the Paramount Theater back in the 1990s.
The industry was just a whisper then, fewer than 100 wineries. Now, just two decades later, it’s well worth shouting: Washington state wines kick booty! We’re more than 700 wineries strong, a growing number of growers are growing world class fruit. Hello, Napa Valley! You all should be shaking in your over-priced Gucci loafers!!
Cody Morris's Sodo nanobrewery, Epic Ales, is a beer-lovers oasis. Tiny, with just a few stools front and center behind which Morris often stands, tasting folks on beer and talking shop, it's the sort of place you really want to succeed, but still don't want to tell anyone about.
Morris makes clever but always tasty brews, many infused with food and inspired by the seasons. Beets, tea, mushrooms, cinnamon, peppercorns, lemongrass; they've all been put to use.
While it’s been my motto for many things throughout my life, it never occurred to me to fake it until I made it with exercise. Aside from going through a phase of wearing ballet clothing in the ‘80s—leg warmers, wrap sweaters and leotards—when I was really into Fame, the original, it never occurred to me that dressing the part could help in acting the part as an actual athletic person.
Whether you’re the designated driver (always an honorable role), taking a break from drinking for a particular reason or no reason at all, or just don’t feel like cocktail-ing it up, it’s never bad to have a few un-alcoholic hits available. The following recipes don’t sacrifice any spirited flavor, even if they are lacking spirits.
Alongside our signature Best Restaurants story, which hones in on the most memorable meals of the year, you'll find something totally new in the April issue of Seattle magazine: an experiment in collaboration.
We teamed up with the editors at Crosscut.com (one of our favorite local sources for thoughtful political coverage and analysis) to co-produce a feature story on the cultural evolution of the Eastside.
Ok, my people, start spreading the news. It's time for Seamless in Seattle 2013. We've changed the rules and added two new categories, Established and Accessories, to the competition, joining Emerging and Students. We've removed the Bridal category, but if you are a bridal designer feel free to enter as either Established or Emerging.
Winners will be in the magazine and in our Seamless in Seattle runway show in late August, location TBD. More prizes will be announced as they are confirmed.
