Time is flying. This year's Strangercrombie Holiday Auction ends at 5 pm this Wednesday, December 15—and the big bucks, as you must already know, will go to Downtown Emergency Service Center and Childhaven.

Now, with all of the bad news coming out of Pioneer Square, here is a way you can show that bad news means nothing to you. It's a package for grub in the oldie and gloud part of town. You get 25 vouchers for free döner kebab sandwiches at the Berliner Döner Kebab, a 6-BuiltPack at BuiltBurger, and $50 to spend at F.X. McRory's. Also in this package is one hour of tattoo time at Hidden Hand Tattoo. Even I didn't know you could eat a tattoo.
