TMA Mondays: Memorial Day

TMA'ed while listening to Get Free by Major Lazer

It feels like yesterday when I wrote this years first May TMA Monday post, and now I'm already writing the last. Don’t get me wrong, I'm pumped for the end of May. Pools open today, but even better Bok a Bok the Korean fried chicken restaurant I've been waiting for opens tomorrow June 1st.

Just in time for June, the large restaurant chains suing Seattle for their enforcement of $15 minimum wage either realized they were fighting a losing battle or just realized they didn’t want to waste their summer fighting over a little more dough.

Our Pick of the Week

Delfinos, U District - What is more patriotic than BBQ on Memorial Day? Pizza, and not just any pizza but the stuffed spinach deep dish pizza from Delfinos. It's the best deep dish I've had in Seattle.

Huckleberries - On my drive back from Columbia River Gorge, I came across a berry farm selling Huckleberry milkshakes. It was so good, I had to find what else I could use Huckleberry and found a few tempting options on MarxFoods.


New Sh*t in Town

Corvus and Co., Capitol Hill - Already open and dishing out middle eastern food like latkes and shawarmas at 4pm daily. Oh and if you have a killer hangover tomorrow, they claim to have the best cure.

Cinque Terre Ristorante, South Lake Union - I say SLU, but what I really mean is Amazon's Doppler building. I've lost count of the number of restaurants Amazonian's get easy access to. This time they get a taste of Italian Rivera that’s perfect for halal foodies because it's seafood focused.

L' Oursin, Central District -  This is where a veteran chef of Il Corvo will mingle the fabulous produce PNW has to offer with France's nouvelle cuisine. Too bad we will be have to wait until Fall.


Seattle, What's Happening?

National Doughnut Day, 6/3 - Want a free donut and a chance to win free flights or tickets to Bumbershoot? Head to any of Top Pot in Seattle, grab a donut, make a donation of cash or non-perishable food, and enter the raffle drawing.

Feast Portland 2016, 9/15 -9/18 - Yes, I know this months away but tickets are on sale now. I have every reason to believe they will be sold out before June ends because considering the lines I encountered this weekend, Portland does food very very well.
