  1. We've been mainly staying locally on the Gulf Beaches area so far, but Rich & Peg are joining us in Tampa this weekend & Bern's is reserved for both Fri & Sat dinners. Yes, different cuts (& different wines) but at 7pm (still early enough). Wanna join us? I love Bern's. The last we went we had a 1964 Guigal Brunet et Blonde and about ten pounds of meat for four people. Say hi to Dean for me at the bar.
  2. Biwa has an amazing late night happy hour, discounted ramen and izakaya snacks! Rocky
  3. I went to the San Fernando on Rainier recently. You know how good the chicken is? I ate white meat and didn't bitch. Also, the tripe stew was killer. Rocky
  4. I would recommend the Max as a conveniently located hotel downtown, also the Westin has been having killer rates. Book now. Seattle is badly underserved for hotels and summer gets insanely expensive with 6 cruise ship sailings a week on top of normal convention, business, and tourist traffic. Ballard is great but not that central, I would go for Capitol Hill or Eastlake.
  5. China Mama and Yi Mei Champion Taiwan Deli are fantastic. Rocky
  6. I always love it. Killer wine list too. Rocky
  7. They for got Blue Ribbon with amazing deals on food and also $5 Fernet 24 hours a day at Vesper Bar. Rocky
  8. You and your Voula's. I'll take The Varsity Inn over Voula's any day. And Steve made me try Beth's and I actually liked some of it! The hashbrowns at Beth's are great. Rocky
  9. Chelan Cafe is one of my favourites for greasy spoon along with Voula's. Rocky
  10. I'm going to miss it as a nice getaway. Rocky
  11. I can't even recommend Portage Bay, but if you are just want a good breakfast go to Voula's.
  12. Portland is pretty compact and cabs are cheap. Use Radio Cab. There are no white tablecloth restaurants per se in Portland but within a few miles of the convention centre are le Pigeon, Nostrana, Laurelhurst Market, Woodsman Tavern, Castagna, Beaker and Flask, Biwa, Pok Pok, and Bunk Sandwiches. If you need a sports bar Spirit of 77 right across the street is excellent. Across the river and still not more than a $10 cab ride away are Andina, Irving Street Kitchen, Clyde Common, Park Kitchen, Gruner, and Oven and Shaker. Have fun. There are also some great cocktail sin Portland. Rocky
  13. . I'm gone until the 28th so my vote is yes. Since December fills up so quickly, I'm going to throw out some dates to see if we can get something on the books. 6th, 7th, 12th 13th, 14th, 19th, 28th, 29th are the only days I'm available in December. And of those dates, I'm only available the 7th, 28th or 29th. Of the dates that Jan is available, Eden says she'd prefer the 29th but could do the 7th. The 28th is out. I'm definitely in for the 7th, possibly for the 29th? While I'm talking dates, for those of you around for Xmas time, y'all should know that the 2
  14. I'm in charge of that very train trip. So glad you'll be coming! I'm probably going to run a crawl for all of the people coming to Seattle first on the 19th. Hit me up! Oh, and you should add Wafu, Pine St Biscuits, Beaker and Flask, Laurelhurst Market, Pambiche, and Nicholas to your list. Rocky
  15. He's a couple days a week right now at the Pan Pacific
  16. Two great meals so far at Revel, get thee hence, posthaste! Seif described the brunch menu as normal brunch meets dim sum meets Korean hangover food. The drinks from Quoin are pretty solid too. I can see myself spending a lot of time here. Rocky
  17. Andrew Bohrer was playing with the smoker gun and had a drink on the menu at Mistral Kitchen that was smoked, Evan Zimmerman used to play with smoked ice when he was at Teardrop Lounge. Rocky
  18. Definitely want to try ANYPP soon. I saw that they were "tied" with Topolino's in Seattle Magazine's pizza roundup. I have eaten at Topolino's, and I could barely comprehend how something so mediocre could warrant comparison to anything considered good, so I'm hoping ANYPP turns out to be much better. Incidentally, Giannoni's in West Seattle is totally decent NY-style pizza, way better than Topolino's and very comparable to the slices I've eaten in NYC. Just stick with the cheese slice or the Margherita and you'll be fine. I have also eaten at Fiamma in B-ham, but it's been years, so I nee
  19. A New York Pizza Place is ok. Have you tried Fiamma Pizza in Bellingham? Rocky
