Need an excuse to dress up, enjoy some bites and wine, enjoy a live performance, and all for a great cause? Then grab your friends (or a date) and make plans to attend the 2nd Annual Canciones Para Puerto Rico for what is sure to be an unforgettable night.
Ten years ago, West Seattle’s Jake Prendez fantasized of opening a cultural space devoted to the arts. Come this Saturday, February 2nd, his dream will become a reality.
May 11th marked the two-year anniversary when Seattleite.com first introduced the world to Deep Sea Sugar & Salt, then an up-and-coming, pop-up bakery serving cake with unmatched flavors like The Peach Bourbon, a bourbon soaked ricotta olive oil cake with a dark salted caramel and peach filling and cream cheese frosting. Now, this bakery’s Boss Lady, Charlie Dunmire, and baker extraordinaire, will open her very own market, Deep Sea Sugar, Cake, & Grocery, this Saturday, May 19th, with the help of Seattle and cake-lovers alike.
Together, the La Isla Foundation and Opera on Tap Seattle will co-sponsor a concert, Canciones para Puerto Rico (“Songs for Puerto Rico” in Spanish), taking place this Saturday, April 28th at 7:30 p.m. to sponsor and provide supplies for two patient rooms in a free clinic in Quebradillas, Puerto Rico.
Carrot Pineapple Brown Butter, Banana Rum, and S’mores. These are just some of Deep Sea Sugar & Salt’s delectable cake flavors you will find this Thursday, May 12th, at West Seattle’s Parliament Tavern. Gather your friends to enjoy a draft beer and munch on one (or two) cupcakes during the pub’s art exhibit, The Fancy Glovework: An Industrial Softball League (ISL) Artist Showcase, that will feature art in a variety of mediums by artists who participate in this league.
One of the many things this Misplaced Texan misses from the Lone Star State is some good ol’ barbeque. So it is no wonder that when I caught the smell of barbeque wafting through the air in my neighborhood, I followed it like a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon when he is physically compelled to float in midair toward a delicious meal. Then I saw it: a tiny log cabin of a trailer known as the “Campfire Chuck Wagon” parked adjacent to Lower Queen Anne’s Citizen Café and Bar on the corner of Taylor Avenue North and Roy Street, just north of Mercer Street.
When one thinks of Utah, the last thought that pops in one’s mind is “beer.” Well friends, having just visited this lovely state, I am pleased to debunk the myth that it is a dry state…er, meaning alcohol is not consumed. Dry in climate? Yes—ten times yes. Dry in alcohol? Definitely not.
