Welcome back to Eater News, a semi-regular round-up of mini news bites. Have info to share? Email intel to seattle@eater.com.

  • Deep Sea Sugar and Salt, the cake shop operating from an airstream trailer in the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, will open its new home around the corner in mid-May. Owner Charlie Dunmire is taking over the former Carleton Avenue Grocery to sell more cakes alongside grocery essentials, Sweet Lo’s ice cream, fresh flowers, drip coffee, and more.
  • Unified Brewing, the forthcoming White Center brewery with an all-star cast of owners, has been “more or less politely encouraged to relinquish its name in order to avoid potential conflict with another company,” according to Facebook. The brewery is now called Future Primitive Brewing, and it looks to open in June.
  • Chef Shota Nakajima, owner of Capitol Hill’s Adana and a former contestant on Iron Chef Gauntlet, competes on Food Network show Beat Bobby Flat May 11. Adana is hosting a viewing party with Nakajima’s favorite bar snacks and cocktails that night starting at 11 p.m.
  • Belltown Brewing’s head brewer, Adam Frantz, has moved on to lead the team at Snohomish’s Sound to Summit Brewing, which was recently sold to another Snohomish brewery, Lost Canoe Brewing. No word yet on how or if that will impact Sodo Brewing, the collaboration project between Frantz and Schooner Exact brewer Joel Stickney.
  • Bainbridge Island’s That’s A Some Pizza, in business for 34 years, won Best Northwest Pizza at the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas thanks to a pie topped with black olives and mushrooms.
