Signing off from Seattleite’s Corks+Forks for the final column, Erin Thomas — out.

It is the end of an era. No, I’m not talking about Monday’s Gossip Girl series finale, the Mayan calendar’s doomsday prediction or even the shuttering of Seattle restaurant icon Rover’s. I speak of this column with this writer — I am hanging my hat with SEATTLEITE. The pleasure has been all mine to drink and eat with you all for the past two years so I thank you for the company and not making me drink alone. Although I would do it anyway.
