Head for these six great alfresco options, each just opened or opening this month atop a killer Chicago hotel.

Another "in case you missed it" link ...
Seattle has a lonely, outdated soda machine that has been spitting out canned beverages for upwards of 15 years—but no one seems to know who restocks, maintains, or collects money from the thing. It also births a random selection of sodas from its "mystery" button. WTF?

This lady has game!  Many of you will know of her articulate nature and put on your resume Spanglish or some derivative of what is proper.  Good for you.

https://www.ted.com/talks/jamila_lyiscott_3_ways_to_speak_english?language=en
Jamila Lyiscott is a “tri-tongued orator;” in her powerful spoken-word essay “Broken English,” she celebrates — and challenges — the three distinct flavors of English she speaks with her friends, in the classroom and with her parents. As she explores the complicated history and present-day identity that each language represents, she unpacks what it means to be “articulate.”

You MUST read the comments!!  Epicurious accidentally spun this off from a real recipe.

Hummingbird water, or simple syrup, but don't let the humble uses of this basic product fool you. It is the simplest concepts that have the greatest degree of hidden subtlety. Only the most accomplished kitchen habituates, and masters of the equally deceptive salted boiling water, should attempt to move to this higher level.

Those who want to know Marshawn Lynch should see this short film.  Incredible, in cool and human way.  Peace and good luck to the man on Sunday.

Ok on a more shallow note ... First you have to love that this Cubs' fan caught the ball in her beer cup. But you have to really love that she looked at the cup, saw the bill spilling out and began to guzzle before any more beer was lost!

Political humor at the expense of the politicians.

How do you feel about facts? Science? Are you frightened of communists, Muslims, and vaginas? Good news! This month, America is inaugurating a new class of elected representatives, and while some of them are bright, able politicians, a few of them are seriously crazy

Another example of climate change.  Thundersnow, requiring the energy of warmer air, occurring near the Arctic Circle must have been startling.

http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2015/03/climate_change_is_already_affecting_alaska_s_weather.html
Earlier this winter, Monica Zappa packed up her crew of Alaskan sled dogs and headed south, in search of snow. “We haven’t been able to train where we live for two months,” she told me. Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, which Zappa calls home, has been practically tropical this winter. Rick Thoman,...

Liability lawyer and former professional bike racer Megan Hottman spends her working hours representing cyclists who've been injured by reckless drivers. She spends her leisure time riding and telling people something they don't always want to hear: in the perpetual, complicated conflict between two wheels and four, bike riders are part of the problem, and they have to be a big part of the solution.

Pictures from the edge of the world.  Okay, it was Cape Flattery.  It was a part of an amazing MLK weekend.  That Friday, before heading out to Neah Bay, I went hiking in the Hoh rain forest and ran into Roosevelt Elk on th trail.  Saturday, an early hike to Cape Flattery and then a visit to the amazing Makah Museum.  Sunday, a hike to Shi Shi Beach.  The photos here are of Cape Flattery.

1.  I love my doctor because she does take the time to talk.  I, in an aggressive move, told my doctor from day one that she is my adviser not my boss, and she accepted it, embraced it and maybe that was her style to begin with.
2.  The article throws out stats like a bad sports announcer.  You know the kind of stats that say things like, "those are the most walks by a pitcher in the first 4 innings of a day game west of the Rockies" shit.  Example: "Of 4,493 people studied, the researchers concluded, mean survival after three years was actually 29 days longer for hospice patients than for non-hospice patients."  What if I wanted to survive long enough to witness an event, lets say 2 years, how would this stat hold up or convey any meaning?

We often state that we have one life so we should live it fully.  We also have one death.  Embrace it, make it meaningful in the context of who you are and who you want to be.  Because as the article points it, if you don't others will pin, poke and prod you down the path.

I am not necessarily a "regular" but I do frequent this fine establishment. The food and service has always been excellent!! I have met with or brought over clients, prospective clients, friends and family to FF during happy hour. The options are fantastic, with good wines, great beer and food that is delicious and a good value at the happy hour price points. It is not unusual for those I meet for the happy hour to hear them express a desire to stay for dinner or insist on meeting again at FF at a later date for dinner. I won't go over the menu items, as they change regularly, but the food never disappoints. Oyster lovers should show up when oysters are on the happy hour menu as the oysters, served on the half shell, are delicious. The various sliders served are also always a treat for a hungry group that wants to share libations. My favorite 2 dishes (I am restricting myself to two) are the miso black cod and the fish tacos. If you are not a seafood fan, then FF has some great options for you. The buttermilk chicken would make a southerner cry with joy. The steak isn't just thrown on the menu but is truly a tender piece of juicy meat that would do any east coast joint proud. To conclude, if you are looking for great food at a good value, then Flying Fish has to be part of the conversation. If you don't believe me, then try their happy hour, but be ready because odds are you're going to have dinner as well.

Unique topping combinations on a crisp and buttery flavored crust (from using high quality olive oil) make this ID pizza joint a must do. My favorite is a roasted red pepper, basil, feta that is a slice so delicious it provokes optimism in the worst Seattle pizza cynics. Oh and the prices are wallet friendly, especially during happy hour.

Eugenio, the chef/owner is thought by some to be quirky, charming, and sometimes even called rude (not my experience) but he definitely can cook. I was born and raised in a great pizza city and have often wondered what is so tough about making pizza here in Washington. Trinacria makes a great pizza, the best in Washington, while mixing their own sausage. The pasta dishes are tasty, in a simple way but definitely NOT chef-boy-ar-dee like. The lasagna is a 4 star version, with quality cheeses and the sauce must be made from San Marzano tomatoes. If you want delicious, uncomplicated Italian at a great value, then Trinacria is your spot!

The West Side of Olympia has many things going for it but it lacked a place where people could gather, or just sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee with a real "cafe" environment. Welcome to Dino's! The coffee is excellent. This is important since it is what most people will be stopping in for. If you are looking for a place to enjoy the good cup of Joe,Dino's offers a comfortable place, with plenty of natural light and a very reliable wifi setup. The food may be basic but it is well executed, providing good food at a good value. The "Left Bank" breakfast consists of eggs (2 eggs) cooked any way you want, served on top of a croissant, top with a generous portion of meat (ham, bacon ...) and then cheese, for $7. There are about a dozen options from burritos to hash available, at similar values and all leading to a delicious meal with your coffee. Of course they offer smaller bites, from mini-quiches to sweets, all to provide visitors with a nice nosh. There also are several vegetarian and vegan options. The service has always been excellent and the owner, Joel, is often found on the premises. All the employees are dedicated to assuring that the customer experience is one that keep us coming back. In short, come to the west side and converse, read, work on your laptop, eat, or just kick back, all with good cup of joe at what will surely become an Olympia institution, Dino's. FYI ... there is plenty of parking in the back.

Dr. Wolfe is a great doctor. If you are looking for a doctor who cares about their patients, who is knowledgeable, who doesn't intimidate but instead works with you to keep you healthy, then Dr. Wolfe is your doctor. The staff is excellent as well.

I have been here several times and the food has always been delicious. The fish is fresh with no "fishy" odors. The rolls are all well made, my favorite being the Miami roll. The staff get 5 stars from me. Everything from the preparation to the service is excellent. The prices are more than reasonable, for sushi. This is the best value play for sushi with Manecki in Seattle giving Fujiya value competition.
