Arcade Lights at Pike Place Market is on April 24 this year, and will bring over 70 purveyors of food and drink with wineries, breweries, sweet and savory food makers, and even some hard-core booze distillers. Prices start at $60 for general admission and go up to $120 for a VIP pass which gets you in an hour early, with some exclusive tastings and a few extra tokens to burn.

The ladies behind food-truck fascination Marination have announced they’ll open a new location in Columbia City, to be housed in the former Esmay Auto Rebuild garage built in 1947. The menu will feature primarily new items in the same Asian-Hawaiian fusion vein as Marination, with a couple of classics thrown in. Fall is the target opening date, but we can all cross our fingers and hope the buildout is completed sooner. It’s all about the southside, y’all!

Chef Ethan Stowell will open a new restaurant in Seattle’s Four Seasons Hotel in late spring, to replace ART Restaurant & Lounge. Chef Joe Ritchie, who currently heads the kitchen at Stowell’s mkt. in Tangletown, will helm the new spot, which will be open for lunch and dinner and “offer a gorgeous selection of shellfish from the region, a top-notch burger, and a smattering of classic appetizers among modern Pacific Northwest dishes.” E
