You’ll have to wait until August 5th for International Beer Day and the Saturday before Labor Day for International Bacon Day. But International Sushi Day? It’s tomorrow, and Blue Cis offering free sushi all the day long. Just say the word “blue” to your server to score a roll on the house. The offer is good at all locations of the conveyor belt sushi chainlet, including downtown, Fremont, University Village, Bellevue Square, Alderwood and Southcenter.
In other news, Hot Cakes is rolling out a new menu on summer solstice this Friday. Sweets, including bling-blings, brownies and layered s’mores will be added to the pastry case, alongside savories, like a charcuterie plate and kale chips. Weekend brunch also debuts this weekend, which begs the question: Can Autumn Martin’s homemade biscuits fill the hole left by Nook’s closure? The eatery at 5427 Ballard Ave. NW is also introducing new drinks, including horchata with espresso over ice and buckwheat and cocoa nib tea.
