As one of the holidays that tends to be celebrated with rollicking parties, St. Patrick’s Day sadly isn’t usually accompanied by delicious drinks. Rather, there’s usually some artificially colored beer sloshing about. But you can help change this trend, and show that you really appreciate the day, the saint and the Irish by serving some tastier Irish-inspired drinks.

In Seattle Magazine’s ongoing Many Faces of Seattle Neighborhoods, today we draw our attention to the zip code 98118. It’s a zip that encompasses the Rainier Valley, Seward Park and Columbia City.

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.
Starting today, Friday March 7 and running through the end of the month, West Seattle’s Clementine is hosting a pop-up consignment shoe shop-within-a-shop.

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).
