Holy smokes, Ballard is hot, hot, hot.

Earlier this week, we learned that Maria Hines is opening a new Mediterranean place in that humming 'hood soon.
And Justin Cline at Full Tilt just told me he's going to sign a lease next week at one of two spots he's looking at in the Market and Leary area. It's going to be similar to the spaces he's got in White Center, the U District, and Columbia City, but bigger.That means more vintage pinball machines and more room for music. Good deal.
I'm going to celebrate this good news by heading down to the White Center location this weekend, because Justin's making up a batch of Memphis King in honor of Elvis' birthday. That's the wicked good stuff that's got chocolate-covered bacon bits mixed in.
