Fogón Cocina Mexicana, Welcome!

I’ve been eyeing that spot on Pine for years. You know, the one that seems to be a bit cursed. The one that used to be KiKi’s and a bar before that. It’s been three eateries within my 2 1/2 years of being here. It’s also a tough spot. There are already so many great … Continue reading

Five Minutes To Save a Life

Last week, a good friend of mine was visiting my lovely city. Okay.. OUR lovely city since I technically don’t own Seattle. Sunday was the last night of her visit and it was a good one. I took her down 5th ave and up Denny Way to break her into the city. I think she … Continue reading

A Cal Anderson Lesson

Yesterday, I learned something in Cal Anderson Park. I learned some soccer drills. Yep. My guy taught them to me. It’s pretty hilarious when you watch him run because you can tell he was a soccer player. He has this bouncing jog only soccer players seem to have. I never played on sports teams but … Continue reading

St. Marks Gregorian Chants on Sundays

Over the holidays,  my friend had an excellent suggestion. She told me on Sunday nights at church on Capitol Hill, there was a choir that performed Gregorian chant. My curiosity was stirred and everyone else in our group seemed to be into it too. We decided it would be a great way to kick off … Continue reading

B & O Espresso is Open for One More Year

It is confirmed, Seattle: B & O Espresso on Capitol Hill will not close for at least another year. For the last five years, B & O has teetered on closing due to the threat of the building owner wanting to open up a new project… because Capitol Hill needs more condos? Part of the … Continue reading

$800 Towing Fee in Cap Hill

Two weekends ago I completely  missed a friend’s hour of DJing because of the giant parking issue in Capitol Hill. I know, I know.. who doesn’t know it’s an issue? This isn’t what I’d call news by any means. I was very upset that I missed this friend’s performance because I was trying to find … Continue reading

Happy Birthday, Jai Ho!

This Saturday is a very special Saturday. Jai Ho Parties are special for me as it is (I met my boyfriend there and I’ve had nothing but awesome dance experiences every time I’ve gone). This Saturday marks the one-year-anniversary. I couldn’t get The Stranger to write about it (boo hiss!) so I figured I would … Continue reading

Admission will be $12 for adults, $6 for kiddos and will be open from 10am to 11pm in true … Continue reading

Disco Dandiya! Dy-no-mite!

“Bollywood.” “What? What’s Bollywood? What is this movie?” My sister has always kept me up to speed with the current trends. It was maybe five or six years ago when she was home on her break from University and I walked into the living room with the movie Bride and Prejudice blaring on the t.v. … Continue reading
