Where are the dollar a piece tooth picks?

the toothpicks are right next to the 5 dollar napkins. Excuse me, the 5 dollar artisanal napkins.

Maybe you can use some of that cash to keep Elliot Bay open after 10.

But it's hand-harvested!

What if it's hand-harvested from the tears of Lon Mabon supporters?

copy on their product page (where it's $3.50/tin):

"Perfect for your bag, chest pocket, or purse. Take your favorite finishing salt with you wherever you go and make each bite of food that much better – wherever you are."

More copy from their site:

"Quickly becoming the finishing salt of choice for chefs across the country. Our flake finishing salt is a delicate flake, with a very clean, briny taste, with no bitter or astringent aftertaste. The delicate flake allows for a controlled application so that chefs can distribute the salt evenly, rather than getting one bite of food with massive amounts of salt, and the next bite with little to no salt."

Even distribution? Does the tin have tiny holes for distributing salt, or is it pretty much that it pops open and all the salt falls out?

I admire your minimalist keys

The fuck finishing salt? Is it a genuine culinary article that Jacobsen is trying to cash in on, or is it a neologism they made up whole cloth?
11
Finishing salt hand harvested from Douche Valley, OR.
12
Do they do mail order?

uh oh Dominic you are going to be in so much trouble! Oddfellows is a Linda Derchang joint (of Linda's)!!! You can't criticize her biz under slog or the Stranger!

Seems like SLOG is dashing off posts today faster than commenters are hence the broken English. Or did I miss a running joke from early on?

I bet I could get super-pure NaCl (s) cheaper from fucking SIGMA ALDRICH.

I'm guessing those fancy tins cost ten times as much to produce as the salt within. Maybe the idea is to dump the salt and put your weed in it?

But surely it's illegal to sell a food product without a net weight statement, even it's under a gram?

Add an L to the link - fleur de sel - makes all of the difference

@16 That was my guess. Guys! Lookit the sign! They're selling slide-tins, not salt.

I think it fits right in with Capitol Hill's demographic.

Best thing about Lost Lake? That I don't have to feel bad about getting coffee and a pastry at Oddfellows. I was seriously hurting there emoindiehipster creed :-(

Hand-harvested finishing dope makes each bite of food that much better.

@15, yes, but that's a chemical. So it would be toxic.
