To me, it means Nanas 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 Cant 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 museums 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. Tonights 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 Carnations 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.
