Poppy's on Broadway

Drinks and desserts at Poppy's on Capitol Hill plus some deep fried eggplant fries drizzled with honey and cumin. This is the restaurant of Jerry Traunfeld, former chef of the Herb Farm. Nice guy and awesome food from the sampling we had. A special thanks to Paul for hooking us up!

Dick's Drive-In: the Tradition

Less than 72 hours in Seattle and three runs to Dick's Drive-In. Yes, it is that good. Personal family traditions of Saturday lunch on Queen Anne with a movie at Uptown Theater (now closed).   
The same menu since 1950's. Hand cut fries with Tarter. Tasty and cheap burgers. Milkshakes spun in vintage mixers. Drive your ride right up to it and order from their simple and perfect menu.

Slow Foods, Nib, Boondockers Farm!


A Slow Food Eugene event at Nib: we met up with Evan Gregoire from Boondockers Farm, who specializes in heirloom breeds of vegetables and other fine products with a focus on organic practices. What a great treasure to the community. We are looking forward to using their goods soon! As usual the eating was extra scrumptious thanks to chef Shane.

hot Devour woodcut action!


Waffles and Redoux

Flea Market on Sunday down at the Fairgrounds! The Redoux Parlour had a satellite shop set up. Employee and designer Melissa was knocking out some very cozy fingerless fleece gloves which are an essential for gripping the wheel on the Devour buses in the winter. After some fine purchases we trotted down to Off the Waffle and enjoyed their fine work. Maybe we should pack some along with us when we get back to it in January? Let's hear some feedback on it.

The Overachiever!

Shopping at Deluxe

On a holiday shopping excursion to Deluxe I spotted these awesome cuff wallets. Mitra the owner / operator of Deluxe can whip these up as needed or you may pick from the on hand selection. For both the girls and the guys! I dig how there is snap in the center that serves as a little compartment and binds the bill pocket together for no lost presidents. Don't lose your George's or Abe's or . . .

Tour of the Pacori base!

Wood fired roaster for that delicious Pacori flavor!
Dropped in to see our homies Eric and Robert and Eric down at Pacori Coffee today and had a fun tour of the operations. Learned some very cool stuff about coffee roasting. Who knew that there is this crazy flammable skin (Chaff) that flakes off of the beans when roasted? Maybe a good camp fire starter? Definitely some cool compost action. Artistically labled sacks of beans were stacked up and ready to roast. It was the real deal for sure! Thanks for the back up Air Pot fellas. Hopefully no more KIA coffee dispensers.

One of dozens. Green beans ready to fire!

Roaster set up. Afterburner tank in the center to pick up that naturally burnable Chaff .
