Let me use this week's installment of the Ray Bradbury-inspired Pedestrian Chronicles as an excuse to broadcast some great news: The kitchen at Broadway's Highline, Seattle's death metal anarcho-punk hangout, has risen from the dead.

Last August, the Highline announced, suddenly, that they were no longer serving food; the vegan menu specialized in comfort food like sloppy joes and messy Philly steak sandwiches.

I cruised by last August to pay my respects. (Metal posters, as I've proclaimed before, are one of the best things about being a pedestrian in the city.)

And last night, the Highline, located at the corner of Broadway and John, announced on Facebook that they were optimistically bringing the kitchen back two nights a week (Mondays and Tuesdays), with the hope of getting back to serving food seven-days-a-week.

The black magic debuts Monday, February 24. And it will be—as they put it—"100% vegan and badass as usual."

Also at the Highline on February 24, math rock from Chung Antique.
