Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside.

Skelly and the Bean will start kicking out brunch in late April – just in time for Mother’s day.

Honest Biscuits, a local and organic biscuitry, will return to the Broadway Farmers Market this Sunday (don’t worry, biscuits will remain at the West Seattle Farmers Market as well). And because nothing goes with biscuits like a drag queen, “celebrity spokesmodel” DeeDee Royalis will be handing out samples both sweet and savory.

Rabidly adored Hawaiian-Korean joint Marination Station, lets loose at its brick-and-mortar location with $1 beers all day on Thursday, April 19 in observance of the brick-and-mortar’s one-year mark.

Vessel is set to open its second iteration in mid-May. With a rotating cast of local and not-so-local bartenders, drinkers can expect new experience upon each visit.

Sazerac celebrates the finish of tax season with a refund in the form of free food. Cash in on Friday, April 20 from 4 to 5.

Seattle stadiums have some new eats this season. Ethan Stowell has filled Safeco with burgers, barbecue and other sandwich creations, while Beecher’s Cheese offers its much-lauded mac and cheese to hungry Sounders and Seahawks supporters at the CLink.

Asparagus shoots turn woody. Go to your local grocer or farmers market and treat yourself to a bunch or two while the season is right. I top mine with a little almond gremolata.

As of yesterday, Starbucks now-house brand juice Evolution Fresh has replaced the Naked Juice bottles previously on sale at the counter. The new juice product’s cold-crafted, no-heat juicing process is meant to retain as much nutrition and actual produce flavor as possible.
