Salumi is closed on Monday.

Good Looking out! Ill note that - we were gonna go pick up our large order of stuff to take home on Monday before we fly home.

Does anyone know of a good bakery/chocolate shop in the downtown area?

Belle Epicurean in the Fairmont is a fantastic bakery. Chocolate Box on Pine St carries a variety of local and not so local chocolates.

Most women don't seem to know how much flour to use so it gets so thick you have to chop it off the plate with a knife and it tastes like wallpaper paste....Just why cream sauce is bitched up so often is an all-time mytery to me, because it's so easy to make and can be used as the basis for such a variety of really delicious food.

If anyone happens to be at these places around these times - look for the young (under 30) Hispanic couple that is REALLY scrutinizing a menu/enjoying the food.  Come up and say Hi!

Cant Wait to experience the PNW!!  :biggrin:

I would switch out Spur for Quinn's on Capital Hill. :wink: But that's just me!

Quinn's it is! checked out the website and the menu looks FANTASTIC! Might have to do both (Quinn and Spur) as the whole Gastopub idea is something that really catches my attention.

I cant even begin to say how much help you guys have been! And I realize that my description earlier might not help you single us out in a crowd and I would like to say Hi to any eGulleteers that may happen past so:

Me - Danny - 28 yo Hispanic - probably wearing a dark charcoal trench coat. 5ft 9, brn/brn with beard and goatee (full chinstrap beard and long goatee, no mustache)

She - Liz - 28 yo hisp - 5 ft 8, long wavy brown hair past shoulders and brown eyes.

Both of us sometimes wear glasses, one of the two of us will have a backpack and camera bag (looking like tourists who are having way too much fun with our food selection). Please stop us if you see us and say Hi! Maybe we can catch a drink and a bite.
