Shameless self-promotion: A while back, we launched a weekly newsletter, The Awesomeness Digest. Focused on food, restaurants, and culture, we have covered topics like eating Belizean rat; working as a cook in a Viking-themed park; the baffling concepts of Lørdagspizzaen and Fredagstacoen; other oddities. Feel free to read and/or subscribe over at Substack.

Notes from all over, a new spot and stuff edition


So, let's just dive into it, shall we?

First, Liquor License Stalker reveals Tamarack Public House will open in the old Nystrom+Olson downtown location at 921 W Sprague. For those not familiar with the building, it looks to be quite well suited for a restaurant.

Spiceologist -- formerly known as Savorx -- is running a «flash giveaway» today. Simply like and share their Facebook page, and you could be the winner of a Spiceologist Starter Block with spices. (Is this any better than the horrible Social Media Guru retweeting? Well, sort of, as at least you'll only see the link one time on Facebook.)

And, if you've been wanting to do another Abyss vertical -- '11-'13 -- you should check out the Elk's fifteen year birthday. Saturday, March 8th, 7pm. Fun will presumably be had by all.

Actually, Jones is doing the same tasting, too, tomorrow, 4pm.

There, short and sweet.
