Heaven visits earth every week at Pike Place Market's the Tasting Room, courtesy of Mac 'n' Cheese Monday, where $12 gets you three half-glasses of Washington State artisan wine and a bowl of bubbling mac 'n' cheese made with the legendary wares of the nearby Beecher's. Unsurprisingly, everyone loves a thrifty gourmet mac 'n' cheese/artisan wine pairing, so get there early and hope for the best. (The Tasting Room, 1924 Post Alley, 770-9463. 5–7 pm, $12.)
