It’s that time of year again when locals flock to restaurants participating in the annual Dine Around Seattle event. This will be the 15th anniversary of it’s inception and 63 local restaurants are participating with three-course prix fixe meals. Karma points are earned this year by booking through OpenTable. Seattle Good Business Network is donating $.50 for every reservation made at participating restaurants to the Rainier Valley Food Bank – all of which will be matched by Umpqua Bank with a donation to Dine Around Seattle. This year’s lineup includes past favorites such as Poppy, Preservation Kitchen and Local 360 as well as some new entries including Tray Kitchen, Pomerol and Ravish. The event runs throughout March on Sundays through Thursdays.
Incredibly, someone has proclaimed today as National Cherry Pie Day and you can celebrate it with a Manhattan or a Caffe Vita brew at Lost Lake Cafe on Capitol Hill. Six bucks gets you pie ala mode with a ‘damned fine cup o’ coffee’. Perhaps you’ll even hear Warrant playing in the background.
The Capitol Hill Blog reports that Euro Pub and Bottle Shop will be opening on Broadway in mid-March. What was once a humble bodega will now become the latest option for your drinking pleasure. The spot will feature 10 rotating taps including growler service and Euro-centric bottles for sale to you and your posse on Broadway.
