Ah, November is here which brings us more fall leaves, clogged drains and holiday marketing opportunities. And who says the French are immune to marketing? Case in point – the Beaujolais Nouveau release which arrives every year on the third Thursday of November at the stroke of midnight. And since no wine really goes with turkey, why not try something new and head to Hommage for Chef Nico Borzee’s French take on dim sum on November 20th? How about rabbit terrine and cassoulet being wheeled around you on carts of culinary joy? I can’t imagine anything better. For tickets you can go to Sosh or call the restaurant directly at 206.283.2665.
Chippy’s Fish and Drink is now hosting happy hour from 5-6p Monday through Friday. Enjoy snacks from the sea such as smoked clam dip for $5 as well as fried oyster sandwiches and all selections of fish and chips for $8 apiece. Oh, and there’s the real reason for happy hour – cheap drinks: Rainier and Tecate for $2 as well as a selection of NW brews and ciders for $3. Ahoy matey!
Savor South Lake Union by coming to the SLU Discovery Center on November 12th to try fare from a variety of restaurants including Lunchbox Laboratory, Shanik, Osteria Rigoletto and Cuoco.

Oh, and all proceeds go to benefit Northwest Harvest. Go eat so others can eat too.
