When Sauced broke the news that legendary barman Murray Stenson was leaving Zig Zag Café, “Zig Zag” became a trending item on Twitter, making the topic one of the 10 most talked about on the social media outlet—nationwide.
Nosh Pit hosted a fiery debate after a Capitol Hill Night Market vendor suggested that, compared to other cities, Seattle is tardy to the late-night game.
