BALLARD— A new organic juice and smoothie bar is now open on Ballard Avenue (5443 Ballard Ave. NW). The owners of Blend Urban Juicery tell MyBallard they're dedicated to keeping their place uber local: "It's a community that is growing at a rapid pace, and we want to support local businesses, not only with the food we prepare, but also by partnering with local contractors, and artists, and using reclaimed materials for our buildout where possible." Blend is currently open with a limited menu (and hours) Monday-Friday from 11 am to 2 pm. [MyBallard]

SEATTLE— Wondering where to eat Chinese food on Thanksgiving? Jay Friedman over at The SunBreak recommends O'Asian (serving dim sum until 4pm), Ton Kiang B.B.Q. Noodle House (for the roasted and BBQ pig and duck, and the poached free-range chicken), Gourmet Noodle Bowl ("a great choice for hot pot dining and other dishes") and both locations of Henry's Taiwan (for the beef).
