WHEN ROVING TV SHOW Drinking Made Easy announced plans to shoot in Seattle, Sauced tapped tipplers to suggest bars deserving of a cameo. At the top of the list: Rob Roy and—35 miles away—Tacoma’s 1022 South.

Culture Fiend also recruited readers to report on Sean Penn’s whereabouts while in Seattle. They spied the actor running around Green Lake and at Cherry Street Coffee House in Belltown.

Meanwhile, What Where When attended Nordstrom’s preview of collections from top designers, where combat boots, slouchy sweaters, and knit caps led us to observe, “Grunge would seem to be the gift that keeps on giving.” And Nosh Pit tracked another trend: late-night food on Capitol Hill. Among the new night-owl hangouts is Eltana, also a victor in a Nosh Pit taste test of Seattle bagels, though not all readers bought the buzz over the bakery’s Canadian-style rounds. One commenter carped: “Things from Montreal [should] just stay in Montreal.”
