Here's one way to pay for college.
La Bodega's marinated roast pork sandwich is quickly building a cult following around town. Your next chance to try one of chef Manu Alfau's Dominican-inspired sandwiches (alongside a heap of yucca and plantain fritters and other street food fare) is Sunday, February 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Unicorn at 1118 E Pike St.

Alfau is still searching out a Pioneer Square-based space for La Bodega's forthcoming brick-and-mortar restaurant. He plans to offer delivery and takeout to downtown-area customers after the shop is up-and-running.

In other news, Andrew Borracchini, an 18-year-old grocery bagger at West Seattle's Metropolitan Market, just nabbed top honors at the National Grocers Association-sponsored Best Bagger contest in Las Vegas. Borracchini crushed the competition, including 23 other best bagger state champions. In addition to $10,000, the teen carried home the coveted the "Golden Grocery Bag" trophy and just filmed an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. He practiced four days a week for months and every day in the weeks preceding the big event.
