New, 1 comment

VITAL UPDATE—Babirusa, the bar next door to Blind Pig Bistro, opens this Tuesday at noon. Expect the menu to cost in the $3 to $8 dollar range and include "finger-friendly fare" like fish and chips and croquettes. Lunch will run from noon to 3 p.m. and dinner from 5 p.m. to midnight daily. [EaterWire]

BEER ME—After analyzing a million beer-related tweets, a pair of geographers uncovered some interesting drinking patterns: Seattle tweets more about beer than wine; Seattle prefers Olympia over other "high-selling" beer and (like the whole West Coast) drinks more Coors Light than Bud Light. Plus, Seattle tweets more about beer than church. Vox has the full breakdown. [Vox]

CANLIS WIRE—Saveur just posted a recipe for the famous Canlis Salad; The New York Times has published a totally different version. Eater broke down the salad's components last year and asked Canlis chef Jason Franey about the iconic restaurant's signature dish. He says, "I think it's a perfect balance between textures, acids, salt and fat." [Saveur]
