Bus wire down this morning...

You can't quite see it in this photo (taken with my phone) but there was a bus line down at Pine and Bellevue this morning. It was quite the mess, with lots of flashing lights and crew. I'm guessing it'll be fixed by the time I go home... King Country Metro is good like that.

Seattle Culinary Academy

"This is one of Broadway's best kept secrets," a customer informed me one day. It is true that many people are unaware of all that the Academy has to offer. You can buy artisan breads and European style pastries at the student operated bakery that is located near The Buzz espresso stand. Additionally, the Culinary Academy operates two restaurants and one express lunch option that features delicious cuisine prepared by the students Tuesday-Friday.

Two Late Night Food Options

Has anyone else had the predicament of finding food near Broadway late at night? I know that after a couple of beers at the Stumbling Monk, I want to get some food into my body in order to feel alright in the morning. There is always the Broadway Grill or Charlie's, but sometimes it is more convenient is to take something to-go. In an effort to be fair there is also Dick's or Jack In the Box, but I'd still rather find another option. On that note, I have discovered two fantastic late night options: Tacos Gringos, open Tu-Sa 8pm-2:30am and Amante Pizza and Pasta, which is open until 3am every night. Both are located on the 1500 block of E. Olive Way.

At Tacos Gringos there are three taco options at $2/ea, two meat and one veggie. (I tried goat for my first time and it was great.) The tacos are on the smaller side, but that makes them perfect for a late night snack. At Amante's they had four types of slices available and I was impressed by the quality of my late night slice. After all, even though it's the wee hours of the morning, it is still nice to eat something that's delicious.

Beautiful Stephanie @ Vivace

Something to try... The Beautiful Stephanie drink at Vivace on Broadway. The baristas recommend it instead of chai tea (which is what I usually go for when I'm in the mood for a caffeinated beverage made by someone other than me).

The Beautiful Stephanie has earl grey tea, a squeeze of carmel syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and steamed milk. It's much lighter than a chai tea. Loved it.

By the way, what an awesome day! I spent the afternoon strolling around Broadway with Carina. The sun was out. The people were out. It felt like a Sunday afternoon in late-May...

Caucus Info


Caucuses are happening at SCCC and the Capitol Hill Library Branch... to name a few.

Check here for your specific listing.

The Dems have this YouTube video out with more info.



You can figure out where to go here. Or just vote in the Primary... the WA Republicans allocate 49% of their delegates at the National Convention to the Primary winner.

No fancy YouTube video... but here's a PDF.
