  • Starting March 9, everything must go from Woodinville’s former Redhook Brewery. Who will win equipment up for auction like a 100-bbl brewhouse and fermentation and conditioning tanks equivalent to more than 800,000 gallons of production capacity?
  • Here’s the updated guide to the 38 essential restaurants in Vancouver, British Columbia.
  • Duke’s Chowder House is moving its longstanding South Lake Union location from 901 Fairview Ave N to 1111 Fairview Ave N, formerly occupied by Saltchuk.
  • Is anyone surprised billionaire Bill Gates has no idea how much junk food like pizza rolls and Rice-A-Roni costs at the grocery store?
  • The same tipster who wished into being a Seattle expansion of Korean fried-chicken chain Bonchon is working their magic on another popular Korean company, French-Asian bakery Paris Baguette. The company commented that it “just might” open a location here: “We’d love to serve in every community, hopefully soon!” No response yet to Eater’s follow-up, but if one previous example is any indication, diners should definitely get their hopes up.
