Ernest Loves Agnes Turns One
It’s been over a year since the literary restaurant moved into the former Kingfish Cafe space and made a home on North Capitol Hill. Ernest Loves Agnes is celebrating with 50 percent off the entire menu. Yup, half off Bolognese pappardelle, Dungeness crab risotto, and Hemingway-inspired booze all day on September 21.

Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival
Dairy queens rejoice—Saturday brings 24 cheesemakers from across the state with over 90 cheeses and lactose-based goods in tow. From 1 to 5 at the Seattle Design Center, dig into locally made gruyeres, chevres, butters, yogurts, and everybody’s favorite milky treat, ice cream. And while you may be very tolerant of lactose, know that there will also be honey and jams to pair with cheeses, bread, as well as beer, wine, and cider. Tickets for the Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival are $35.

Rosé Wrap-Up at Bottlehouse
The leaves have turned and fallen...like our spirit. But thankfully you can say goodbye to summer through its unofficial seasonal beverage, rosé, at Bottlehouse from 3 to 6. The Madrona wine bar and shop is hosting Rosé Wrap-Up, which means live music in the garden and six tastes of wine all for a $16 ticket.

Portland’s Ox Take Over the Miller’s Guild Menu for a Night
Sharing an affinity for fire, chef-owners Gerg Denton and Gabi Quinonez-Denton of Portland’s Ox will be guest chefs at Miller’s Guild, feeling at home by the nine-foot-long, wood-fired grill. Chef Jason Wilson will cook alongside the Portland chefs, creating a tasting menu as well as an a la carte menu inspired by the Ox cookbook, Around the Fire. This means: grilled corn empanadas, smoked beef tongue, grilled lamb heart, grilled halibut on the bone, tres leches cake, and more. The a la carte menu will have decidedly less offal offerings. The eight-course tasting menu is $145 and includes a signed copy of the cookbook.

Cambodian Popup in Pioneer Square
Sharing similarities with Thai cuisine, expect a lot of interesting flavors and spices from the Kirirom popup at the Faerie Queene on Sunday, from 5 to 10. Start with green mango salad and prahok ktiss, a spicy pork dipping sauce, then get into entrees such as Khmer sour soup with beef, red fish curry, and lort cha, a rice noodle dish with prawns. The last Kirirom popup filled up at 7:30, so you may want to see yourself to the event page for reservations.
Ticket Alert: Oyster Dinner with Rowan Jacobsen at Bar Melusine
On October 5, bivalve buff and author Rowan Jacobsen will be at Renee Erickson’s latest oyster bar in Capitol Hill to eat and discuss a certain shellfish.
