Just a reminder that a handful of food events and other newsworthy launches kick-off today. Both Kraken Congee and LloydMartin's Diversión debut this evening on upper Queen Anne — the former at Grub. Kraken starts serving at 5 pm, while Diversión opens its doors an hour earlier.
Maximum Minimus is back this season starting today. Forgoing its traditional 2nd and Pike perch, the pig will be parked at 2121 Westlake Avenue. You can find the barbecue truck's inaugural schedule on its Facebook page.
Speaking of meals on wheels, the Georgetown food truck pod is officially open. How Pickle Got Out of a Jam, Evolution Revolution, Skillet and Monte Cristo are just some of the trucks on-board for the lunchtime pod at 6100 Fourth Avenue South. The cluster will operate from 11 am to 2 pm on weekdays.
Last but not least, Madison Park Conservatory opens their upstairs bar every Monday starting tonight at 5 pm. And if you bring a framed photo of yourself during your awkward years, there's a good chance you'll get 50-percent off your bill.
