@1: Really? Granted, the details about staffing are insider baseball, but decor- and "concept"-wise, his place actually seems pretty restrained... which is a relief, as I said in the post. Click on that 8oz. Burger Bar link for something that really reads like satire.

@2: Joining Tommy Gun and Can[n]on and probably more I'm forgetting—apparently, it's a thing?

@3: I'm with you, but i'm also trying not to be glum about it and give some props to the new places that aren't just carbon copies of existing, slightly-less-new places... Also why I included a shout-out to the Summit, which is grubby and great. Let's hope some Capitol Hill nightlife conglomerate doesn't have to "rescue" it.
Oct 3, 2014 Bethany Jean Clement commented on Katsu Burger Is Open Again in Georgetown!.
@2 and 3: I quite liked the schnitzel at Feierabend when I had it, though it's been a while. (And @4, it's also bigger than your head, at least in circumference.)…
Oct 1, 2014 Bethany Jean Clement commented on Malay Satay Hut Is Closed! But Here Are Six New Seattle Spots.
@5/6/7: The Thai Curry Simple in the ID was the first one, I think; the one on Madison was always short-term, since it was in that former drive-up coffee stand that was destined for a tear-down (the new building there now is especially hideous). Then they opened one in South Lake Union for a while too; not sure when that closed.

The people at TCS are really nice, and at their place in the ID, you can buy their curry mixes to make at home, too—super-spicy and great.

@2: A bar/restaurant, not an actual hotel ("You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here!").

"Thrilled" is LIBEL. We're going to miss you so much. CRY.
Sep 17, 2014 Bethany Jean Clement commented on In Food News: Hello to Trove, Buh-Bye to Belltown Billiards, and More.
@1: I had just heard it was still open, but the nice people at the Tweedy & Popp hardware store next door say you're right. Thanks!
Sep 10, 2014 Bethany Jean Clement commented on In Food News: Four New Pioneer Square Places, Good-Bye to the Erotic Bakery, and Tons More.
@2 and 4: It closed way back in May, no real reason given... sad, right?…

@3: Thanks! Have you been in?

Point taken, Fnarf, but I mean "highbrow" in the context of other bro-trip comedies like The Hangover—you know, visiting Pompeii instead of Vegas. And they are actually talking about Byron and Shelley all the way through, and in British accents, so does that count?

I know about the series, haven't watched the whole of either, have you? Worthwhile?

Can I get crabs from you?! PLEASE?!?!?!
