TMA Mondays: Love and Hamilton
Happy new month! If you felt like January was super long, don't worry, you weren't the only one. Luckily for us, February is only 4 short weeks. but its filled with lots of food-related fun. First, Bonchon, the Korean fried chicken chain, will be opening a location in Seattle! They originally said they won't, now they said they will, they are toying with our emotions. Second, its Hamilton season! The super popular Broadway show will start its Seattle stint tomorrow, Feb 6th and Seattle restaurants are getting in the Hamilton spirit. Tavolata will be serving a special 3-course pre-show dinner the whole time the show is in town. The Carlile Room also has a Hamilton inspired drink and food menu. Check them out! Oh and last but not least, Seattle Met has your guide for your Valentine's day reservations. Make them early, a.k.a. now, because places are getting booked quick!
