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.

Two things to do today...


First, go to and use the 70%-off code "PLATE" to get an already discounted gift certificant to a local restaurant of your liking. Tweet us where you end up going!

Then go read "Eat Lou Kohl" at Seattle Weekly. It's a pretty funny take on the current locavore/pop-up restaurant craze, and even includes a reference to former local singer, Kaylee Cole.
