Honestly, there's only Canlis, that comes to mind, that actually has a dress code in Seattle. We're pretty informal in our dress. As long as you're clean and non-smelly you can go almost anywhere. I've worn jeans before to Lark.

He was sent up in the square. It was on a Sunday.

That be them. More sausage like than the typical American hot dog.

That would have been smart, eh? Alas, no. I think my gut, and you all are correct in the paella pan idea.

Street Food in Marais

We had a great hog dog looking thing with peppers and onions right outside the Republique metro stop. It was cooked in what seemed like a huge wok/paella pan. I'm looking to find out what the pan actually is called so I can hunt one down state side.

Where are you staying in West Seattle? It's not overly touristy over there and depending on day and time it can take over 30 minutes to get all the way back in to Seattle and up to Fremont.

I haven't seen any news other than he only started on April 13th and the word on the street was that they weren't going to make any menu changes for awhile after that so he could get his footing.

Have Seattle's Craft Brew Tasting Rooms Become Beer Raves?

No 6 cidery has decided to allow children also. Good or bad depending on your view :)

Thank you!

Over the Moon, Tacoma--What the F?

Oh goodness. That place has sucked since I was last living down there in like 2004! I had no idea it was still open and/or how in the world it survived this long.

Fantastic! Thanks.

We're going to be in town Easter Sunday, staying at the Pan Pacific. Will things be open that night for dinner or do most places close? We were thinking either Zakkushi or finding some good pizza. Thoughts?

University , Wallingford , Fremont , Ballard ?

Do a search.

College visit...first time in Seattle!

Hotel Murano is nice. There is also a Silver Cloud down on Ruston Way (aka the waterfront).

I'd head to the Museum of Flight on Friday instead of wasting time on our freeway battling traffic up to Everett and back.

You're still spending A LOT of time on the freeway positing yourself in Seattle instead of the Tacoma area. There's a lot to do down there and you could even take the train up to Seattle if you absolutely must on Friday.

Local knowledge needed: beer near University of Puget Sound, Tacoma

There's a Safeway on Proctor. Only like 6ish blocks away.

Coyle's Bakeshop

I hope it's just they don't have their stuff quite together. I would be hard pressed to make any bake shop a destination unless they can pretty much guarantee that certain things (or at least more than 3 things) be available.

Grocery Store Roasted Chicken - Who has the best?

I like the QFC chickens a lot better than the Fred Meyer chickens and they're both Kroger stores. I will not buy chickens from Safeway due to their texture and the last few I have gotten from Freddies (their Wholesome brand and their "normal" ones) have both had a really weird texture to them.
