Chow Skillet Update #187
posted by March 24 at 11:53 AMon
The person who suggested in the comments of Skillet Update #186 (last week) that Skillet ought to put down the bong may have been onto something. Today’s news from the Skilleteers:
the story behind the truck caper is unfortunately a little embarrassing…basically, long story short, josh left the truck in a no parking area/towing area…came back to get the truck in the morning…and thought it had been stolen…called the cops, they said…ummmmmmm…it was impounded…josh felt dumb…end of story…
In other Skillet news: Coming soon, Skillet on Capitol Hill on Mondays. (Not today.)
we do have the capital hill location…it will be on 12th ave, in the fine folks of the photographic center nw parking lot on mondays
And, in the Dept. of Un-Skillet-Related Slight Corrections: The little bird that told me that Jerry Traunfeld’s new restaurant would be in the Jade Pagoda space on Broadway was a little off: Poppy will be a few doors north, where the Elite used to be. Before anyone freaks out about restaurants with overpriced food for yuppie d.-bags displacing venerable gay bars and ruining life as we know it, note that Traunfeld is the chef-genius of Herbfarm fame, that the Herbfarm is widely recognized as the region’s only premiere fine-dining experience, that Poppy will be moderately priced, that we will be damn lucky to have it, and that the Elite has been successfully transplanted just a few blocks away on Olive, where gentlemen who love gentlemen seem to be enjoying its charms now more than ever.
