Read on for four weekend dining and imbibing ideas.
Play bocce. Von Trapp's, the Bavarian "bier hall" at 912 12th Ave. is a Chuck E. Cheese's for hipsters: Five bocce courts take the place of ball pits, brats replace sausage pizza, and Viennese chandeliers hang instead of track lighting. Proust!
Bid adieu to Showa. Sadly, you only have two weekends left to eat at Japanese snack bar Showa at 701 N. 36th St. Owners Taichi Kitamura and Steve Tamura confirmed the sale via Facebook. The duo plans to focus on their other restaurant: Eastlake's Sushi Kappo Tamura. Showa officially closes Feburary 24, so now is the time to wish fond farewells to staff--and eat a bowl of steamy kotteri ramen.
Celebrate T?t. Food stars at the annual T?t in Seattle Festival in honor of Vietnamese New Year. Although the actual start of the lunar calendar was last Sunday, festivities and edibles will be featured at the Seattle Center this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
