- Just in time for 4/20, the Saint, Capitol Hill’s newly hot-pink tequila bar, reinstates its taco menu tomorrow, including braised beef short rib with mole and chicken adobo with roasted tomato-chipotle salsa.
- Also apropos of the 4/20 crowd, excellent Ballard restaurant Porkchop and Co. celebrates its 4th anniversary tomorrow with a competition: $5 gets competitors a shot at a $50 gift certificate, with 5 minutes to eat as many biscuits as possible — served with butter and jam, though the Michael Scott school of speed-eating recommends diners simply dip their food in the water so it’ll slide down their gullets more easily.
- Things finally appear to be looking up for SLU’s Mollusk Brewing Company and Dexter Brewhouse, as the company — which has gone through major changes in chefs, tipping policies, and branding since it opened in 2015 — plans to expand to Magnuson Park in June with Magnuson Cafe and Brewery (7777 62nd Ave. NE).
- The bad news is the Wandering Goose owner Heather Earnhardt and her husband, Zac Young, aren’t opening a long-planned smoked seafood shop in Hillman City after all. The good news is they’re taking over the historic Tokeland Hotel on Washington’s southwest coast and renovating it to include a 60-seat restaurant, bar, and bakery.
- Fake Starbucks coupons promising free coffee for people of color are making the internet rounds, pushed by the online trash-fire that is 4chan. “This is completely false and in no way associated with Starbucks,” a company spokeswoman told CNBC.
