Hard to believe it's not even Spring Break yet, but Summer Camp sign-up is in full swing! Why do you need to sign-up now? So you (and the kiddos) don't miss out on some totally awesome summer camps, including soccer, ballet, swimming and science! Kinda makes you wish you were a kid again, doesn't it?

      Hunger Games cupcakes! Hunger Games cupcakes! They're chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream (unless you special order them with your favorite flavor; minimum order of a dozen), and they'll be available at all Trophy Cupcakes locations through Sunday. That is all. [Ed's note: And may the odds be ever in your flavor...I mean favor.]

As many know, an aperitif is a drink taken before dinner. It may have been invented by the Frenchman Joseph Dubonnet in 1846, as one story goes, or, if you travel farther south through Europe, by Antonio Benedetto Carpano in 1786 when he invented sweet vermouth. I believe, though, that the practice of having a slight sip to start those gastronomic juices flowing goes back even farther.

The beer-focused bar has taken over the former funeral home which until last year, housed the Chapel. Beer nerds like Kendall are sure to be in heaven: From Kendall's Washington Beer Blog:

At long last, the empty corner space that once housed Tilden (403 15th Ave. E) is being reborn as a Southern-tinged breakfast and lunch spot, The Wandering Goose. Owner Heather Earnhardt was co-owner (with Erika Burke) of the warm, inviting Volunteer Park Café from 2007 until last year; fans know how down-home yummy the food is there; I've got a special weakness for the figgy maple scones.

If you've ever dropped a tire into a spine-rattling pothole, you understand why SDOT's stated goal is to "repair potholes within three business days of receiving a report." The city's three roving "Pothole Ranger" crews fill about 10,000 potholes every year. To see if your favorite local pothole is slated for repair, visit SDOT's handy pothole map.

You could've knocked me over with a feather this morning when I opened my inbox and there was the news: Murray's Cheese opening seven mini Murray's stores inside local QFC stores. I had to check to make sure it wasn't an Onion headline.

Don't mind if I toot our own horn, but The Forecast fashion show at Benaroya Hall last night (a first-time endeavor for Seattle mag in theme and format) was a hoot. The crowd was lively (and impeccably dressed); the drinks were strong (sorry for Tweeting too much); and the concept delivered: the spectacle of high fashion met the practical needs of life in the Northwest, where we actually like to move around in the clothing we buy.

Nothing beats the winter blues like a dip in a pool. If a tropical getaway isn’t in your immediate future, you can still go for a swim at one of the many local indoor pools. With everything from movie nights to rope swings to indoor rivers, you might even forget it’s winter out there!
