Seriously, Who Goes There?

Dish D'Lish

It's time for a new post dear readers. This is the first in what we expect to be a long running series called "Seriously, Who Goes There?" This week we'll start out with one of the biggest curiosities on Ballard Avenue - Dish D'lish.

With it's cutesy apostrophized name and pricey sauces, we just can't help but wonder....seriously, who goes there?!

Hello Dear Readers! We're Back!

We missed you and we're sorry we were away. We were having a fight with our mortal enemy, DNS. You know, Domain Name Servers, those evil persnickety bastards that control web sites.

While we were away, we really wanted to tell you about the Haitiwood event this week. We hope you went. They raised $2,567! We're so proud. If you did miss it, and you want to show your support, you can attend Lovin' Haiti at the Tractor. This even will feature Tripwires, Cute Lepers, Whalebones and Demon Rind. It's on Sunday, January 31st at 8 p.m. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross for relief for Haiti. Click here for more.

We also wanted to tell you about the Magnolia Coyote. A State Fish and Wildlife agent killed the male coyote today. We're kind of sad the coyote and his bride couldn't live in peace amongst the people of Magnolia. We know one of them attacked a dog, but that still makes us sad.

And we wanted to talk about the Sunset Bowl being torn down. There have been many a night recently when we though we really wish we could head to the Sunset Bowl and belt out a few songs or roll some balls. Alas, our bowling days, much like Kingpin's hand, are in the past. Pour one out for the Sunset this weekend, folks! Keep her forever in your hearts.

It's Beard and Moustache Time Again!

Throw out your Razors!

We're so very excited to let you know that the Beard & Stache Fest is once again getting underway next month. It's a hairy contest that raises money to help out foster kids.

If you have a beardtastic face and want to compete in this wonderful non-profit event, you have one last chance. Take your hair filled face over to the Beard & Stache Web site's registration form. The photography session is TOMORROW, January 6th, in the U-District, so hurry up.

For those of you who don't have beards or groovy staches, you can participate as well by supporting the beardy contestants at a series of events in February. We have to say that we went to some of these events last year and they were tons of fun. I don't know if it's just because we happen to know last year's winner or what, but we found these stachetastic events are filled with big-drinking fun-having friendly folks. And it doesn't hurt that mustaches really tickle our fancy!
