If you really consider yourself a Seattlite but haven't seen salmon spawning in local streams, now is your chance. For the next few weeks chum and coho salmon will continue to return to the gravel beds of their youth at Pipers Creek, Thornton Creek and Boeing Creek on the north side of town, as well as at Longfellow Creek and Fauntleroy Creek in West Seattle, among other riparian zones around town.

(The buck stops here) The perfect local, organic, nutirent-rich Thanksgiving side dish.  By massaging salt into kale, the bitterness disappears and the leaves become tender.

Our edit team (and a good chunk of our loyal readers) are still recovering from an epic evening of food, drinks, music and entertainment at last night's Best of 2010 Party. While I'd much rather recap the evening over a city-wide brunch with all of you, I thought it might be easier to put together a snap shot of the evening's convo via iPhone Storify, my new storytelling obsession.
