Dinette (home of many tasty takes on toast) is now open Mondays.

Skelly and the Bean’s unique chef incubator project began this week. Every Monday in March, Sarah Wong, instructor, chef, and member of the Butcher’s Guild, will be doing a meatless Monday menu, served up with a side of irony.

Eater Seattle reports that Dinette is now open Mondays. This means fancy toast is now available six days a week.

Ales from local brewery Two Beers will be available next week at CenturyLink Field. Starting March 17, some of the SoDo brewery’s most popular creations will be on tap during Seahawks and Sounders games.

Tom Douglas’ Brave Horse Tavern will serve breakfast from 8 to 11 on weekdays, starting March 28. More importantly: Breakfast includes pretzel breakfast sandwiches.

Big Al Brewing is just about to launch a third ‘hood-exclusive charity beer, and the organizers are leaving the naming up to you, says West Seattle Blog. (Maybe they are hoping to avoid another double entendre …) Whoever comes up with the winning name gets to choose a charity to receive a portion of the beer’s proceeds, as well as a stack of gift certificates from a variety of bars, and eternal fame.

Four intriguing meals are coming up at the Herbfarm: first Super Cattle, starting March 9, a meaty meal exalting Washington and Oregon–raised Wagyu. After that; Chambers of the Sea, Spring Forager’s Dinner, and Salmon Nation.

The Beard and Stache Fest will be bouncing around town all month, from bingo at Calamity Jane’s to a Skee Ball tournament at King’s Hardware.

MOD Pizza has just launched the Mini MOD, a pizza sized for kids (or not-so-hungry grown-ups) that costs just $3.88. The little pie will be available at four of the five locations: Alderwood, Bellevue, Capitol Hill, and the U District.

For those of you regretting not buying an entire case of Thin Mints, never fear. There’s an online cookie locator. Find cookies in your ‘hood (or just find a new cookie spot, so they don’t see you coming back for yet another case of Samoas).
