Seattle World’s Fair is Cool Again (Thanks to Café Nordo)

Visiting the Space Needle was not on the top of my “must list” when I moved to Seattle six years ago.

To be honest, it seemed like one of the city's miscalculated impulseslike getting a lower back tattoo or a car phone.

Maybe that's because my vision of future worlds is more fired up by the likes of Back to the Future or Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure than that of the Jetsons. Read more »

An Exclusive Musical Tribute to the Viaduct

viaduct

Our offices are right next to Phase 1 of the Alaskan Way Viaduct demolition, so we've had a front row seat to all the machines pick-pick-picking away at the doomed highway. In a surge of nostalgia for the concrete disaster-waiting-to-happen, I wrote a little song about the Viaduct. My husband Daniel Spils, a music producer, added a bunch of layers to fill it out. Then our friend (and musician and animator) David Nixon added video. And "O, Viaduct" was born. Hold hands and sing along, everybody! Read more »

Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet, Part 6: Let the Turkey Rest

Remember that the turkey can sit, cooked, under foil on the counter for 45 minutes and be perfectly fine (actually better!) than if you're rushing it to the table and cutting into it right away.

Meat that is allowed to rest is juicier, so err on the side of having the turkey done early: just tent with foil and use the oven to rewarm or keep warm the green bean casserole and mashed potatoes. 

This also means you have plenty of time to get the gravy just right.  

Happy Thanksgiving!
