Grog Opens Friday; Ba Bar Cronuts Named & More!

BALLARDBallard Annex Oyster House will be opening its new back bar to the public on Friday, November 15 at 9 pm. Grog, a sailor-inspired cocktail bar with its own separate entrance (on Market), will serve beer, wine, cocktails and a rotating list of punchbowls or "grog." There will also be a menu of small plates. To kick things off: crab "naraka" deviled eggs (hot & sour blue crab with rooster powder), duck bun pork tacos, Spice Market short ribs, and a pork belly and Sichuan peppercorn sandwich. Grog will be open Thursday-Sunday, 5 pm to close. [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILLBa Bar has named its version of the (trademarked) cronut. Some of the 140 suggestions included: Fauxssant, Croughbar, Pas Nom, Babette, Glazed and Confused, and Bronuts. But the winning name is...drumroll...Double Happiness! The name means doubling joy in Chinese, which is perfect for the croissant-doughnut hybrid. Since the name came from within the Ba Bar family, the hundred Double Happiness cakes promised to the winner will be donated to Seattle Children's Hospital. The pastries will be available for $3.50 every Saturday and Sunday beginning this weekend. [EaterWire]
