TMA'ed with Too Good at Goodbyes by Sam Smith on repeat

It's that time of the year, pumpkin flavored everything is filling the grocery store aisles. Cheesecake Factory re-released its pumpkin and pumpkin pecan cheesecakes and there are multiple articles on the joys, evils and experiments of pumpkin spice.

"We really think of ourselves as a technology company that happens to sell cheeseburgers." Those are the words of Cali Group CEO John Miller in response to the planned addition of burger flipping robot, Flippy, to 50 Caliburger restaurants. What that means for fast-food employees is unclear but jobs will definitely be replaced in the long-term.

Lastly, just in time for peak Netflix and chill season, Zeeks Pizza now delivers beer and cider with your pizza delivery.


Our Pick of the Week

Ba Bar, South Lake Union - Their chicken wings are on point and they have a fusion dish called Ramen Pho that has the lightness of Pho with the umami of Ramen. I highly recommend.

Pumpkin Bread - Start the season right with this recipe for pumpkin bread by My Baking Addiction.
