CAPITOL HILL— Remember the Broadway Cafe Solstice coffee cart from the 90s? It's coming back home. CHS reports owners Joel Wood and Doug Sowers are opening a second Cafe Solstice to join their coffee shop on The Ave. It will be located inside the Lyric building at 10th and Thomas and could be open by year's end.

OLYMPIAHere's an interview with the owner of Frankie's Sports Bar and Grill in Olympia, where he lets his patrons smoke pot. Frankie Schnarr tells the LA Times, "You get used to the smell — it's like the mold at your Mom's house." While recreational marijuana use is legal in Washington, it's not allowed in public places such as bars. Schnarr's loophole? He's using a space in his bar he says is private. [Q13]

CAPITOL HILL— To mark the end of the NW Tequila Fest weekend, Ba Bar is hosting a "hangover brunch" this coming Sunday. Bar Manager Jon Christiansen has created a few special cocktails (all $6), such as The Ice Pack: a tequila slushy with blue curaçao, lime, coconut, and pineapple. In addition to the regular breakfast and lunch menus, Chef Eric Banh also has three brunch specials on the docket. Who wouldn't love a huge bowl of congee with pho beef bone marrow, shiitake mushroom, and a house made Chinese donut to shake the shakes? [EaterWire]
