As much as I hope to check visiting all the great new craft breweries that Kendall Jones wrote about in our current Beer issue off my beer bucket list over the next several months, it’s unlikely to happen. This is why I am especially grateful for the most recent trend in the evolution of the convenience store: the craft beer convenience store.

beer!
Occupational hazard: I love beer. Didn't used to, but that was in the dark days before Seattle mag's epic 24-page beer extravaganza, which could make a beerdo out of anyone. Neophyte that I am, I enjoy sidling up to Washington Beer Blog's Kendall Jones at beer events and asking him stupid questions, like I did last night at the Triple Door's big Elysian Brewing Company's brewlaunch of their new Triple Door Backstage Ale.

*Updated 10/14 with new information (below) Japanese firm Hitatchi Zosen signed a contract today to build the behemouth boring machine that will blaze the trail for the waterfront tunnel. Read cool details about this sci-fi creation here; then picture what $80 million gets you. My fave highlights from the always-fascinating DOT press release:

The boys of Seattle band My Goodness are currently sitting in our office lobby, posing for pictures shot by our staff photographer Hayley Young. She's making them do all sorts of funny screaming and heavy breathing for the pictures. It's quite amusing - but they are great sports about it. Don't know who My Goodness is? Take a moment to rock out with them here:

Pleased as punch to be sprung from SoDo on this rare sunny day, Seattle mag staffers were treated to a tour of what's next for the 50-year-old Seattle Center.

Last night's X Factor episode was bumped to a delayed baseball game (woe!), so we have to wait until tonight to really deliberate over which Seattle contestant is the best. In the meantime, to respond to Brangien Davis' challenge of my preferred X Factor candidate, I submit new evidence: a video diary of Phillip Lomax, filmed as he was leaving Seattle to attend the next round of auditions.

This band, Little Scream, is coming to the Sunset Tavern on November 9. If you haven't heard them yet, check out this lovely tune:

Saxon! How can you not fall in love with such a goofy, blissful redhead (shown above and below)? In case you missed it: we asked readers to share pictures of their own dogs to complement our October story about "Seattle's Dog Obsession." We then decided to choose the cutest dog from those submissions. Settling on this totally biased and arbitrary decision was very difficult. Seattle mag readers posted so many wonderful pictures of adorable pups on our Facebook wall, we could barely breathe, let alone make a rational decision. Thanks to all who played along and submitted your lovely pictures. They certainly helped brighten up a grey day. Scroll down to enjoy a small selection of the "runners up." Or visit our Facebook wall for a raw and uncut cuteness overload.

Cake versus pie? Judging from the responses I've gotten since finding out that I would have the privilege of judging the epic rematch of last year's Cake vs. Pie competition last night, people are not wishy-washy on this matter. I've heard many a definitive statement to the effect of “Pie. Duh”; or “Clearly pie.” And truth be told, most folks who have weighed in to me have come out loud and clear on the side of Team Pie.

The Book Larder, a new cookbook store and events space (and the only store between San Francisco and Vancouver, BC to sell cookbooks exclusively), opened this week to much fanfare.

Say a tearful goodbye to the south end of this behemouth next Saturday
I was driving into Seattle mag's SoDo world HQ this morning, gazing up at the Viaduct in all its splendor, when it hit me with a jolt: A huge chunk of that hulking concrete leviathan that has framed my view of Elliot Bay since birth will cease to exist in less than two weeks. Like many of my co-workers who work in the shadow of the thing, I've been in an agony of logistical contortions of late, getting ready for ViaPocolypse 2011. But it never occurred to me until today that the whole thing could be a big party. To wit, this item from the DOT website:
