Thanksgiving fans, delight: Capriotti's Sandwich Shop is opening its first Washington State branch at 17308 Southcenter Parkway in Tukwila this morning, and the first 100 guests in line at 10 a.m. will receive a free 9-inch Bobbie sandwich (turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mayo). The 39-year-old chain has outposts in 17 other states and is known for "its tradition of slow-roasting whole turkeys in house overnight and hand-shredding the meat off the bones the very next morning to make all their turkey subs."

Chuck's Hop Shop
Forget growlers. Local favorite Chuck's Hop Shop in the Central District now offers patrons of smaller appetites the chance to fill 32-oz cans ("crowlers") to order with anything the store has on tap. Per Capitol Hill Seattle, owner Chuck Shin "got the idea from Seattle's Timber City Ginger, which runs a small canning operation, and thought it was a good solution for customers who forget to bring in their growlers. The cans are also more mobile.
'It's good for somebody who's going camping or traveling who doesn't want to bring a growler,' Shin said."
The cans are priced the same as a half-growler plus $1 for the can, and are just sold at Chuck's Central District location for now. Shin tells Capitol Hill Seattle he's also planning to add ginger beers, a cucumber soda, a cold brew coffee nitro from Stumptown, and root beers to the program in coming weeks. [Capitol Hill Seattle]
