Chile Dreams at Cursed Oak

I recently (and by this, I mean months ago, as magazine time is very different from regular time) rolled into the less-than-a-year-old Seattle bar Cursed Oak, sidled up to the bar, chatter with amiable bartender and owner Mike Carroll, and sipped on the Mule variation and refresher Chile Dreams. Then I wrote about Chile Dreams for Seattle magazine, a piece you should read right now. You deserve it.

Travel to Foreign National, Have the Osaka No. 1

I recently had the pleasure of checking out Seattle stellar new-ish (last summer I believe) cocktail bar Foreign National. It’s an amazing place. You must go there. You must! While there, I had the Osaka No. 1. It’s an amazing drink. You must have it. You must! Then I wrote about the whole bundle of must-ness and joy for in a Foreign National Seattle magazine article. You must read it. You must!

The Antivenom at Corvus and Co.

Not too long ago, I was able to track my way into the animal-tastic (and still sorta new) Corvus and Co. in Seattle, to chat with the neato staff, nibble on the Mediterranean delights, and most of all sample the cocktails, chief of which was the Antivenom. Then, I got to write about it for Seattle magazine. And now you can read all about the Antivenom and Corvus. Do it!
