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).

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.
