Oh, boy. Snagging an open table at Glo’s felt a little like winning the breakfast lottery. The Capitol Hill diner is tiny and there’s almost always a line out the door brimming with hungover hipsters and senior citizens and everyone else in between willing to wait for one of the best damn morning meals in Seattle.
And, sure enough, almost as soon as I sat down, the dozen tables were filled again, a lone server taking care of the whole room with utter efficiency.
I don’t need to try to convince you to shop consignment. Either you do or you don’t. Personally, I love it, mostly because I can get high-quality goods for less money and currently I’m in a more-is-more phase of wardrobe building. Which is why I’m excited to check out Mary-Bridget Pehl’s online consignment shop, MB’s Finds, and shop her upcoming pop-up on June 7 and 8 (at 1930 First Ave., right next to Baby & Co., like her Facebook page for more details).
The Spring/Summer issue of Seattle Health is here! Check out the digital edition to read about weight management for better health, new oral treatments for MS and new research on early addiction intervention—plus local companies that are making doctor consultations easier than ever, allergists' most unusual patient cases, and much more.
Back in January, we wrote a story about Dr. Mary-Claire King, the pioneering Seattle geneticist who discovered the breast cancer gene, a groundbreaking finding that garnered some serious Hollywood attention. King is the subject of the new movie, Decoding Annie Parker, a Steven Bernstein film starring actress Helen Hunt as King and Samantha Morton as cancer-stricken Annie Parker.
Must DrinkRevelry on Red MountainHead east for a wine-drinking adventure at the Col Solare Winery atop Red Mountain. This fifth annual tasting event will feature the latest wine releases from 24 Washington winemakers, plus bites and spectacular panoramic views of the valley below the winery.
Cruises of all kinds scare me: Caribbean cruises, Mediterranean cruises, European cruises, Tom and Suri Cruise. I did a quick search on Carnival Cruise Lines' website and found you can take a "Cruise to Nowhere" for a mere $329. To nowhere. Sorry, but that sounds just plain terrifying.
When my dad had cancer eleven years ago, Gilda’s Club was there for him and that support made him happy. It was that simple. When we were there, he was happy, and that was all that mattered, so I’m forever grateful to this organization for that and those memories and like to do whatever I can to support them.
Gary Manuel salons have been beautifying the people of Seattle since 1979 and on May 30, you’re invited to check out their newest Studio concept space, in South Lake Union, on Thursday, May 30 at 6 p.m. for their grand opening and Earth Month celebration.
With the long weekend almost upon us, we’re thinking it’s time to party! However, having a party isn’t much fun if you spend its entirety as the most stressed out host or hostess in the world. Luckily, serving good drinks for a big group isn’t hard.
This month's TEDxSeattle Talk is centered around the theme Degrees of Impact and will feature a slew of speakers who will discuss and share ideas on personal, community and global influence. Most notably, Matika Wilbur, photographer and founder of Project 562 (and subject of an extensive profile in our June 2013 issue), is slated to speak at the event.
If you are a middle school girl, the Seattle Rainmakers' home game in West Seattle was the place to be last weekend, seeing as the Mother’s Day crowd was made up primarily of middle school boys. It’s not a surprising fan base for Seattle’s first Major League Ultimate (MLU) team considering the growing popularity of the sport at the youth level and the fact that many of the Rainmakers themselves coach at schools throughout the city.
You just never know who you’ll bump into at the massive Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, the 36th annual food-focused event held last weekend on a mile-long stretch of the Mississippi. This heated competition is also known as the Super Bowl of Swine and calling it EPIC would be an gross understatement.
It’s true: There are few things that could motivate a Seattleite to leave her cozy apartment in the U District at 5 p.m. on a Friday evening, hop onto the glorified parking lot that is I-5 at that hour and head for Puyallup.
Last weekend, however, I did just that—and I did it for Bigfoot.
