Pike Brewing Company, the go-to spot for Pike Place Market visitors looking to experience a little Pacific Northwest beer culture with its brewery tours and microbrewery museum, recently opened a new restaurant serving fish and chips, oysters, and other seafood-focused bar snacks inside its brewery.

Pike Fish Bar is located in the former space of Tankard and Tun, another seafood restaurant that closed during the pandemic. Compared to its predecessor, Pike Fish Bar has a narrower, more casual menu that’s mainly focused on panko-crusted fish and chips — with options for fried rockfish, cod, salmon, shrimp, and oysters. It’s also serving salads (with an option to add fish), pretzels, po’ boys, burgers, and clam and crab chowder, with a daily selection of oysters on the half shell.

St Demetrios Greek Festival Returns After Two Years

St. Demetrios Greek Festival, a tradition since 1960, is returning to Montlake’s St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church after a two year hiatus for the pandemic on October 7, 9, and 9.

Though this is a cultural festival, with live Greek music and dance troupes, the main event is the food with gyros, souvlaki, lamb, roasted chicken, spanakopita, and more for snacks, a variety of Greek pastries for dessert, made by church members, Greek wine and beer offerings, and Greek coffee.

More information is available on the festival’s website.

Behold Seattle’s first Dick’s-a-Thon

Want to compete in the ultimate Seattle test of physical endurance? Behold the Dick’s-a-thon, a 22-mile footrace and Dick’s hamburger-eating challenge, starting and ending at Meadowbrook Playfield park in North Seattle on October 22 at 10 a.m.. It’s a fundraiser for Washington Search and Rescue, in honor of organizer Kenneth McNeill’s fallen friend, Ian Cox.

“The Dick’s-A-Thon is a circumnavigation of Seattle via the classic hamburger drive-in, Dick’s, making a 22 mile loop of the city while eating their famed menu items along the way,” McNeil said in a press statement. “It is a grueling test of 3 areas of fitness: physical, mental, and gastrointestinal.”

Tickets to participate (with burgers included) are $50. A GoFundMe fundraiser has raised over $2,500 so far.
