As a Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon has received countless accolades (see: 9 Tony Awards, including Best Musical), so little needs to be said about its quality: the tremendously catchy songs, funny writing and outrageous, South Park-style raunchy lines and lyrics. But the big question is: How does the touring show hold up to the New York production? Personally, I don't know. I didn't see the NYC show. But I can say the Seattle show makes for a genuinely fun evening.

I’m lazy. If I’m going to eat something that’s good for me, it’s got to be delicious, which is why I have a hard time eating right. I love vegetables, especially in cheesy gratins, which is counterproductive, and I’m a sugar and carb fiend with unpredictable blood sugar issues, which makes my cravings wicked mean when I try to fast.
No, Honoré Bakery's Franz Gilbertson isn't opening a new Spanish-inspired bakery (tears). However, the owner of one of Ballard's best bakeries is a partner in a new Spanish sandwich shop opening in early March on Capitol Hill.
It’s still new in the New Year, there’s time to re-up your follow through on your resolutions in case you feel yourself slipping. In that spirit, I’ll be posting about a different aspect of clean living each day this week—as much for myself as for you.
This week: Bar Method
Kelly Cline is making it pretty near impossible to stick to that New Year’s juice fast resolution. She’s the clever creator of Blue Moon Burger’s monthly specials and for January, she’s cooked up a sandwich that evokes crunchy, corny childhood memories. Especially if you spent some formative years shoveling Frito Pie into your gaping maw!
What? You’ve never heard of Frito Pie? Well, it’s kind of like poor man’s nachos, with chili and cheese plopped on top of a bag of those chips.
In a bid to take over the waxing world, The Wax Bar owner Karen Jahn has opened a new location in Laurelhurst this month, joining salons in West Seattle and Ballard.

In addition, The Wax Bar is the only spa in Washington state with a liquor license, for enjoyment and liquid courage.

By far one of my most fav stores in Seattle (one I sadly rarely get to visit because I've always got my kids with me) is Far4. I just love Jenny and Yuri's eye for sophisticated, but totally eccentric and unique, home decor, jewelry, accessories and of course, porcelain.
It's sale time at Far4 with all items in the store at least 10 percent off, including 15 percent off jewelry and 20 percent off 2-D art. The kids are with the nanny today—I'm so there.
