photo by Kristin Zwiers My eyes widened when I opened this recipe, submitted by one of my favorite Belltown spots, Spur Gastropub. Duck cooked in duck fat, topped with a bacon vinaigrette? Yes, please. Thanksgiving only comes once a year, so treat you and your guests to this highbrow take on the traditional fowl dinner. To cure the duck legs: 4 meaty duck legs

Last week, I sat down with pastry chef Dana Cree of Poppy in Capitol Hill, and asked her what she likes to bake during the holidays. She gave us this delicious, zesty gingersnap recipe--perfectly crisp around the edges, a chewy center, and a top flecked with coarse sugar for extra crunch. Need I tell you they are absolutely addictive?

On Saturday, Nov. 14th at 11am, Po Dog, a gourmet hot dog joint opens its doors on Capitol Hill.  On the menu? Look for adventurous bites like peanut butter and banana-topped hot dogs, and deep-fried egg roll wasabi dogs. (Local street food favorite, Josh Henderson of Skillet consulted on a number of the hot dog combinations, and will be guest-cheffing for the month of November.)

Yep, it's true. Bring in 25 wine corks to any of Ethan Stowell's restaurants (Anchovies & Olives; Union; How to Cook a Wolf; Travolata) to receive $25 off of your bill.

Capitol Hill's hip hop and dj standard, the War Room, is for sale, reports The Seattle Times music blogger Andrew Matson. Stress, the state's liquor tax increase (which takes about 40 cents from each drink sold at War Room, estimates owner Marcus Lalario) and new regulations requiring Seattle clubs to have sprinkler systems installed by December 1, all contributed to the decision to sell the venue, according to the piece.

I can't wait to make this Momofuku Ssam's recipe from David Chang's amazing new Momofuku cookbook. We caught up with him last week and he promised us this recipe. Cook's tip: take the printed recipe to an Asian foods store, since this guy isn't shy about using ingredients you may not have sitting on your counter. But that's the magic.

The Seattle Symphony is getting their spooky on tonight (and Friday and Saturday nights too), when they'll play the score from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho live while the film plays on the big screen. Apparently there's a way to remove the music but keep the dialogue in a film (who knew?), which is exactly what they've done. So you get the double benefit of experiencing a classic horror flick in large format while the soundtrack is played live before your very ears. So cool! Can't wait to hear those screeching violins in person.

Belltown got a new restaurant ten days ago, with creative food and huge views of Elliott Bay and Belltown’s passing parade. It’s headed by former Qube chef Joseph Conrad (he also cooked at Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago and is the executive chef at Twist) and the bar is manned by Armin Moloudzadeh who made a name for himself at Bastille and Black Bottle.

The 1st Annual Gregory Awards, presented by Theatre Puget Sound, took place last night in the packed and festive Intiman Theater lobby. This long overdue celebration of local theater started out modestly, with only six awards, plus a "Sustained Achievement Award" for theater photographer Chris Bennion. But the short list of awardees belied the gigantic feeling of camaraderie among this happy gathering of theater geeks.

Critics always struggle to describe what Reggie Watts does—at least when he's not doing straight up music (as with local band Maktub, or the recent, lovely short songs he created for the new Electric Company which you can watch here). His comedy isn't strictly improv (though he does a ton of improvising throughout) and it's not stand-up (though he is standing up, most of the time).
