In what is hopefully a sign that hotels, at least the boutique variety, may start bagging traditional room service all together, Miller's Guild is using very non-traditional packaging to deliver order-in. About two weeks ago, chef Jason Wilson and the crew at Hotel Max unveiled a nifty new room service program without using a single silver domed tray in the process.

I sure know a lot more about Tom Dixon since his appearance last Saturday at Inform Interiors (as do the other 280 or so attendees). For instance, he’s noodling around on the guitar again (in his youth, he played bass in a rock band). The reasoning behind his sowing an underwater furniture farm in the Bahamas (to grow furniture, naturally).

Must Go EastKathy Venter’s Striking Nude Sculptures on View at Bellevue Arts Museum(3/7 to 6/15, times vary) — Based on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, ceramist Kathy Venter crafts life-size nudes out of terracotta, hand-pinching it from feet to head without a mold or interior framework.

A good new bar is always exciting, but a new bar from Bryn Lumsden is at least five levels above exciting! Not only was he past bar manager of the legendary Rob Roy (as well as making drinks at spots like the sadly departed Vessel and others during the last ten years), but he was also named one of Seattle magazine's Happiest Happy Hour bartenders.

It’s been a great run for Eli Dahlin. He’s been the chef de cuisine at Renee Erickson's The Walrus and the Carpenter since it opened back in August 2010 —part of an integral crew that helped catapult the Ballard oyster bar into a nationally recognized restaurant.

Demolition has officially begun to transform the tiny strip mall storefront into a 23 seat bar that's attached to Blind Pig. It’s been the plan since owners Charles Walpole and Rene Gutierrez took over the space last July.

The Comet Tavern wasn’t pretty when Jason Lajeunesse and Dave Meinert, the same team behind Lost Lake Cafe and Big Mario's Pizza, took it over last November. In fact, it was in extreme disarray.

In November, I moved from Wedgwood to Mount Baker, city-side near Massachusetts Ave. I moved for many reasons—to be closer to work and in a more urban setting, near better transit options and with great walkability, and, yes, for a more diverse experience. Among other things, I wanted to live somewhere where everyone did not look or live like me—and to be stretched and enriched by these new relationships.
