Seattle Restaurant Week Giveaway

Seattle Restaurant Week Giveaway...

In case you didn’t know (and how could you not if you are a regular reader of Yay-Today?), Seattle Restaurant Week is back. Yup, for the next two weeks (excluding Fridays and Saturdays), you can score a sweet deal ($28 for dinner, $15 for lunch) at some of Seattle’s snazziest restaurants. That’s a whole lot of reason to find excuses to eat out by itself, but if you absolutely need another one, you’re...
Weekend Round-Up: 10/14-10/16

Weekend Round-Up: 10/14-10/16...

Fall is in the air, but Seattle hasn’t retreated into hibernation mode just yet. (Thank god.) Nope, instead of succumbing to depression we’re about to welcome yet another weekend that is bursting at the seams with fun. I insist that you get out and enjoy the weekend (especially all the free food listed below). Sunday, October 16 officially kicks off Seattle Restaurant Week. We’ve got a whole big...
Dolce Vita: 33% off to NYC

Dolce Vita: 33% off to NYC...

Have you been to Dolce Vita in Ballard? Probably not. It’s that big store with all the windows and clothes that scream YOU CAN’T AFFORD ME. Except, you would be surprised. Some of their clothes are actually surprisingly reasonable. Don’t expect Value Village prices, but it’s a good place to buy one coveted piece that you can wear with everything – like a mini dress for the Summer that you could easily transition...

Enter to win: Goodreads gives you a book...

The idea for today’s article started with my favorite Yahoo Groups (quite possibly the only good thing going for Yahoo are their groups): Seattle Urban Farm Co-Op. I think I probably mentioned this to you and maybe to everyone I know, because I seriously love the little insights this group has to share. If you’ve ever grown anything in your backyard then you want to join this group. The conversations go from how...
Musical Plates: White Moustache Tours Keeps You (and Your Wallet) Full

Musical Plates: White Moustache Tours Keeps You (a...

As my pants know all too well, Seattle has a lot of good food. The city may be small (and yes, Mr. I-never-get-around-to-hanging-out-in-Columbia-City-because-it’s-9-miles-from-Ballard, Seattle is a pretty small city geographically), but almost every corner is hiding it’s own culinary delight. If you find yourself in a gastronomic rut, you’re doing yourself a disservice. It’s time to get out and do some...
Weekend Round-Up: October 7-9

Weekend Round-Up: October 7-9...

I’m waiting for those pretty Fall weekends I once remembered having in Seattle. Seems like the last year or two has taken a weather dump and it’s totally out of my composting control. All I want in life right now is to pick some friggin’ apples on a sunny Saturday or Sunday and the stupid weekend weather just won’t cooperate. Well, anyway, here’s some crap you can do while I sit in my bathroom and cry: -Arcade...
Best in Show at West Elm Seattle’s Grand Opening

Best in Show at West Elm Seattle’s Grand Ope...

In case you have been living under a rock for the past couple of months, let me tell you that West Elm has finally launched it’s first Seattle store. That’s right folks, no more wistfully staring at the catalog over a glass of wine trying to justify a quick day trip to Portland so you can get the new serving platter you’ve been lusting after. Say goodbye to evenings spent trying to justify the shipping...
Silent Reading Update: Free music while you read

Silent Reading Update: Free music while you read...

I keep kicking myself for not making it to more Silent Reading Parties. Why? Because the one time I went I really, truly, not just saying it for blog’s sake, enjoyed myself. So, if you haven’t read our love for these hush-hush evenings at Sorrento Hotel’s Fireside Room, here’s your chance to read all about it. Photo courtesy of Sorrento Hotel The party isn’t really so much a party, rather than a gathering of people...
GIVEAWAY: Try Poquitos New Brunch Service for FREE!

GIVEAWAY: Try Poquitos New Brunch Service for FREE...

I love everything about brunch. It’s a celebration of laziness (sliding into a booth hours after any respectable person has already eaten breakfast) and gluttony (when else can you essentially order bread pudding and call it toast?), and it’s an especially social communion over food- nobody eats brunch alone, and when you sit down with your eating companions, everybody starts out on the same playing field (key...
