The Veuve Cliquot Mail Truck Comes to Seattle...

There is never not a good time for champagne, especially for a good bottle. And Veuve Cliquot is my person go-to bubbly when a celebration is at hand. This weekend, if you have good taste like me, you’re in luck, because the Veuve Cliquot Mail Truck is travelling through Seattle with bubbly and bites for you and yours.

Northwest Tequila Fest is This Weekend

Northwest Tequila Fest is This Weekend...

Nothing says summer like a margarita. And margaritas simply don’t happen without tequila. Therefore, this weekend, if you love summer, you must say “Ole!” to Northwest Tequila Fest. It happens on Saturday, August 9 at Phinney Neighborhood Center. Photo credit: Flickr user Lindsey Turner Northwest Tequila Fest is nothing like the nights you only kind of remember from college – this is a change to sip...

Boozy Slushies at Artusi...

Summer in Seattle is more than just warm weather and Teva tan lines – it’s a celebration of cocktails that you only get to enjoy when it isn’t freezing cold outside. This summer we’ll celebrate some of our favorite Seattle summer cocktails. Today it’s the frozen slushy drinks at Artusi in Capitol Hill.   Flickr user JetAlone Artusi is more than a boozy waiting room for your table at...
Monday Movie Nights at Percy’s

Monday Movie Nights at Percy’s...

Mondays are a particularly trying time, so it’s always best to ease yourself back in whenever possible. This summer, all of your Mondays just got a little better, because Percy’s and Co., the apothecary-bar-delicious restaurant in Ballard is playing a Hitchcock film every Monday night until August 25, with the added bonus of all-night happy hours! Image from Percy's Facebook page Rather than slaving over a hot...
Join the Champagne Campaign at Rock Creek

Join the Champagne Campaign at Rock Creek...

You need more bubbly in your life. Good thing you have Rock Creek in your corner. This seafood-centric restaurant in Fremont’s upper corridor not only makes some of the most drool-worthy dishes in town (seriously, just order the black cod and tell me it doesn’t change your entire life. I dare you.), but they have a bar so good that I’ve kind of started a casual religion around Mike Duncan, their head...

Three Cheers for Seattle Beer Week...

courtesy of http://www.seattlebeerweek.com/ This Thursday, May 8th, marks the beginning of a ten day beer drinking stretch that may require using up a few sick days here or there.  Bearded brewski aficionados will be heading out to the local breweries in order to guzzle freshly brewed beers, clang frothy iced mugs and give each other high fives.  There are dozens of events to choose from this year.  Here are just a few of...
Happy Hour at Cafe Flora

Happy Hour at Cafe Flora...

Happy hour has a bit of a bad reputation, nutritionally speaking. Sure, it starts with a glass of wine or a cocktail to relax after a long day at work, but then suddenly you find yourself face down in a plate of pork belly sliders and cheesy nachos piled a foot high. But it doesn’t have to be that way- you just have to be smart about where you spend your happy hour. So let me tell you about a happy hour that’s...
$12 Cava Sundays at Cure

$12 Cava Sundays at Cure...

$12 Cava Sundays at Cure combine two of my favorite underrated things. First, Sunday happy hours do not get the love they deserve. There’s simply no better way to soften the ominous dread of knowing that the weekend is almost over than by enjoying a drink with a friend. Second, you aren’t drinking enough Cava. Sure, Champagne gets all the attention, like Kevin Arnold from The Wonder Years, but Cava is Karen, his...
