Another Public Service Announcement

Seattle diners, this one’s for you!

For the last 15 years I have enjoyed Muhammed Bhatti’s wonderful restaurant, Cedars on Brooklyn. When I heard Cedar’s was changing hands this spring and going to be Cedars in name only, I was dismayed! I needn’t have worried, because Mr. Muhammed is back and better than ever in [...]

Live from Vegas

Pramas and I spent the weekend in Las Vegas before the GAMA Trade Show officially kicked off. Gabe “Mondo” Vega is eve expanding his ConQuest gaming convention empire and this year he kicked off ConQuest Vegas. We came down to show our support. They had a lovely space up on the 26th floor of Bally’s [...]

Wine and Games

Setting up for gaming Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

Jess has a wine locker at a wine storage place here in Seattle. One of the benefits of this is that they have a room that members can use for private tastings or small gatherings. It was the perfect location for a little wine and gaming. [...]

Theo + Kawali Grill + Spiderwick

Busy day. I’ve got photos and whatnot to recap with over the weekend if I find time but I’m frankly exhausted. In addition to prepping for a gigantic shipment of individual orders related to Green Ronin’s Freelancer Fundraiser I had a pretty action packed day.

I went on a tour of Theo Chocolates in Freemont. [...]

Blade Runner

I fell for Harrison Ford as Han Solo when I was seven and never looked back. I had the Star Wars trilogy, the Indiana Jones films, and just when I was barely emotionally mature enough for it, Blade Runner to cement that. I love Blade Runner and I love Harrison Ford in it.

When I [...]

Jury Duty Observations

Spent two days in a room at the courthouse waiting for anything at all to happen. Nothing did. I was not called for anything.

I sat for the entire time in what I dubbed “the outlet corner” which had two outlets easily accessible by four chairs, a little away from everything. I sat in [...]

Food photos

Espresso Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

I’ve put up some food photos from this week. The GenCon 2007 photos are in another set, but this is how I ended my day of horrific travel: pizza at Tutta Bella in Columbia City (olive oil, fresh figs, proscuitto, and chevre is the “pizza of the day” this [...]
