SEATTLE— As Copper River King salmon season fast approaches (May 16), Puget Sound Business Journal catches up with Jon Rowley, the man behind the fish frenzy.

REDMONDBJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse has opened in Redmond Town Center. The 8,500 square foot space seats approximately 260 people and, according to a press-release, "features BJ's extensive menu including BJ's signature deep-dish pizza, award-winning handcrafted beer and famous Pizookie dessert," which is really just a cookie topped with two scoops of ice cream and served in its own deep dish. Hours are 11 am to midnight Sun-Thurs and 11 am to 1 am on weekends. [EaterWire]
