  1. I'm ready for some more dumplings - perhaps not Thai dumplings! Is anyone available this weekend?
  2. Here are a couple of places for your longer visit over the 4th of July. The are both on Lake Union, just North of downtown. One is on the East side of the lake (my favorite neighborhood) and one is on the West side. East side with a view to the West: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2516391?checkin=06%2F29%2F2015&checkout=07%2F08%2F2015&guests=2&locale=en West side houseboat with a view to the East http://www.vrbo.com/609189?CID=a_cj_7130284&utm_source=cj&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_content=7130284&utm_campaign=10859114_ Belltown is fine to stay in. It's jus
  3. I can do dinner on either March 6th or the 11th. Does anyone want to go for daytime dumplings before then? My schedule is pretty open these days
  4. I'm here and will post a more thorough and thoughtful response soon but I wanted to say, for your 9 night stay over the 4th of July, it would be really fun to find a place with a view of Lake Union so you can watch the fireworks. Try looking for places in these neighborhoods: Eastlake, Westlake, South Lake Union, Northlake or Northwest Capitol Hill. I'll poke around HomeAway, airbnb, etc and see if I can't find some examples. And can we get together while you are here?????
  5. I'm hooked on it. I tend to believe Adnan is innocent but I really have no idea. I assume we can talk spoilers here? If so, read on. The phone call where he gets really upset with the interviewer (Sarah?) because she says she might think he's innocent because he seems to nice to have done that was interesting. It tips me a bit to thinking he might actually be innocent. The only thing I believe for sure is that his attorney sounded crazy! If I was a juror listening to her, I'd tend to side with anyone who wasn't her. It's interesting that the Innocence Project team took an interest in H
  6. I did too. Unfortunately it got cancelled and there won't be a season 3.
  7. Those carrots were a game changer for me. How had I never thought to do this before? Carrots cooked in cast iron in a 500 degree oven is my new go-to menthod. And you can mix anything into Greek yogurt for the sauce - even worcestershire sauce if you are feeling lazy.
  8. What kind of crowd was at Radiator Whiskey when you were there? I've avoided going because the last couple of times it was full of high fiven', wooting, bro's. Each table trying to prove they had more testosterone than the other. How long are you in town?
  9. There's the Fancy menu at Staple and Fancy. You can do the entire menu at Blind Pig Bistro. Chef's menu at Art of the Table. What kind of feel are you going for?
  10. Caprial Pence is back in Seattle? That's great!
  11. 6:30 sounds good. See you there and hopefully we'll see da goose after!
  12. Let's plan for Sunday. Where to? Ping's? Fu Man? Din Tai Fung?
  13. When/Where are we going next? Any interest in going this weekend?
  14. Since October 10th no longer works, does anyone want to do this on October 13th or 14th?
  15. Paul and I are in for the 10th. Maybe we should try Damn the Weather or other new places in Pioneer Square after?
  16. Are we still doing lunch at the Peruvian place on the 10th? Regardless, either the 10th or the 11th works for me.
  17. I wish I was going to be in town for that. We really ought to get something on the books for October.
  18. Good point, thanks for bringing that up. My favorite things at Green Leaf are the bahn xeo and the fresh rolls. They have a piece of fried wonton running through the spring rolls that gives it a great crunch.
  19. 87 yesterday, 77 today and 70 on Thursday. I don't like where this is headed.
  20. Oh, and I forgot to add, yes the Hotel 1000 is downtown. Pioneer Square is just South of the hotel. It's one of Seattle's oldest, most crusty, neighborhoods and has been having quite the resurgence lately. There are tons of new places open and I've been to only a couple of them. The neighborhood can be a bit sketchy after hours so be sure to cab home if you decide to check out the area at night. Here's the Eater archives for the neighborhood.
  21. Absolutely you need to go to Walrus and the Carpenter. It's a short cab ride away in a neighborhood called Ballard. If you can, get there right when they open and sit at the bar. Even if you can't, as a solo, the wait shouldn't be too long. They have opened a bar next door called Barnacle so you can put your name in there and have a cocktail while you wait. When are you coming? If the weather is good, Westward is a great place too. It's also a short cab ride from downtown right on the shore of Lake Union. Seaplanes fly overhead, you can see the space needle and houseboats. It's very Seattl
  22. She really is gorgeous. Vlad and I send our condolences.
