It’s subtle, but it’s there, that chilly shift in the air, a few leaves starting to fall and thank heavens, racks and rack of sweaters are filling the shops: It’s fall people! (Apologies to you summer bunnies, but this here editor loves her jackets and jeans).

Beer! Cheese!
The serene gorgeousness of this photo (thanks, Hayley!) belies the lunacy of the scene the past few weeks here at Seattle mag World Headquarters. In the name of research, your hard-working editors have sampled dozens of local craft beers of late, and then actually eaten the cheese that goes with them. Brings a tear to my eye just to think of it. Imagine: A nibble of nutty Gouda, followed by a sip of brown ale. A blob of goat cheese chased by a swill of porter. A giant wedge of Beecher's cheddar washed down with a citrussy IPA.

Laura Olson is on fire: She's opened Po Dog and Grim's on Capitol Hill, and a bar called Detention (in what used to be the second Po Dog) in the U-District in just the last two years.

If the sun is shining in Seattle, you must take advantage of it! Ditch the stovetop in your stuffy kitchen and head out to one of these family restaurants in Seattle that have outdoor dining options.

The folks at The Perennial Plate are on a foraging kick, similar to our Cook's Adventures: Eat from the Sea piece in the August issue. They just released a new video on their website about three natural ingredients that can be (somewhat) easily found near the ocean on the West Coast: greens, giant clam and - why wasn't this obvious before? - salt.

Jamie Boudreau finally gets to eat his cake. A Canadian who escaped a far more sober life as a would-be physiotherapist, he has established himself as one of the Northwest's most respected bartenders, with stints at Tini Bigs, Vessel (now defunct), his own cocktail show on the Small Screen Network, and a standing reputation as one of the world's great molecular mixologists. All this, it seems, has been leading to this moment: the imminent opening of his own bar.

  We asked readers to share their favorite memories of Bumbershoots past – and their most vivid fantasies of future Bumbershoots. The most outstanding entry on our Facebook would receive a free pair of Platinum Passes to the 2011 festival. We had a fantastic response – and the editors had great fun reading the posts, so  we had to share. Here are the “runners up”  (and the winner) from our Bumbershoot giveaway: My favorite Bumbershoot memory was watching the sign language interpreter try to keep up with the Black Eyed Peas in 2009.  –Ally …the year I worked a friend’s food booth. I had two friends watch my then 8-year-old daughter while I worked. Expecting her to be returned to me at a certain hour, one friend came back empty-handed and told me, "Your daughter is busking to a crowd." She had seen a handmade stuffed rabbit she wanted in the Indie Market, and—having no $$$—she decided to earn it. She told stories until she earned the $28. She was then returned to me, happy and with her new stuffed bunny, and inspired by her experience.  –Sue

The glue to any good neighborhood is, of course, its neighborhood bar. Green Lake has The Latona, Phinney Ridge has The Park Pub, South Park would be lost without Loretta's, and the epicenter of Columbia City is Lottie's.

Two Frenchy-French spots open today, one of which is simply frosting on what's already a thoroughly convincing "Little Paris" in Seattle.Surely a croissant taste-test of the luxuriously buttery ones at Inez Patisserie and the flaky ones at the newly opened second location of Belle Epicurean needs to happen.

It’s been a big week around here: Our fall shopping and style-packed September issue has hit the newsstands. In case you missed it, earlier this week, I gave readers a little behind the scenes peek at pulling the issue together –and trying to fit in over 100 local finds–here.

Geez, was it something we said? Right on the heels of our article spotlighting Eric Boutin's groundbreaking work to improve student meals at Seattle Public Schools came news that Boutin was being transferred out of his job as director of nutrition services.

Sometimes I am my own worst enemy: Back in March when I first suggested to Editorial Director Rachel Hart that we feature only local products in our fall fashion and shopping issue, I had no idea what I was getting myself into (or that I would play stylist for a day!).

Today, as expected, the Federal Highway Administration signed off on the deep-bore tunnel project. The "record of decision" is an incremental stop on the tunnel project's journey, and essentially gives the state the go-ahead to start final design and construction of the project. According to the WSDOT, the decision also spells out certain measures intended to minimize impact—such as monitoring buildings and utilities while the tunnel's being bored and making up for lost parking (somehow).
