Sunday Supper

Delectable dining, minus bugaboos

To me, it means Nana’s Irish stew, tipsy uncles, cousins and kids running around crazy in the basement putting on skits before conking out in front of the T.V. for Parker Lewis Can’t Lose and In Living Color (requisite viewing if you wanted to be able to have any semblance of conversation the next morning during first period). For Seattle Art Museum though, the quarterly Sunday Supper is a much classier affair. Held at TASTE, the museum’s commanding cafeteria-chic dining room, these dinners are, in the words of SAM, “about making connections, gathering the community around the table for great food and conversation.” Tonight’s five-course dinner (each paired with a different wine included in the price) includes treats such as a cumin-roasted squash salad, a chevre and polenta tart, and (mmm) carrot cake. Enjoy the meal, prepared with produce from Carnation’s organic Full Circle Farm, without being interrupted by shrieks from the kids table, or outbursts from in-laws over alcohol fueled political conflicts, as you dine side by side with strangers, family style. Well, not quite.
