Farmer’s markets are the heavens to foodies. There’s nothing better than a dinner stewed from fresh veggies and meats, and if once a week isn’t enough to stave your cravings, fear not and look no further! For days like Mondays and right before the weekends on Thursday nights, Leslie Kelly from Seattle Mag brings you 5 days to mark your calendar. Are you ready to head out for culinary delights each week? (Question’s rhetorical, of course.)
1. Usually, we’re not a big fan of Mondays, but Madison Park Conservatory‘s new dinner series just might turn us around on the beginning of the work week. Every “Monday/Monday/Monday”, Cormac Mahoney and Zoi Antonitsas collaborate with a featured winery or/and farmer to create a four-course feast for $42. Stokesberry Farm and Local Roots produce launched this series last week. On July 16, the spotlight’s on El Corazon Wines from Walla Walla. And book your rezzie right now for July 23, when Cormac’s fellow Food & Wine Best New Chef, Jenn Louis from Lincoln Restaurant and Sunshine Tavern in Portland, is in da house. Don’t know about you, but we love it when cheffies from PDX come to SEA. Follow MPC on Facebook to get the Monday updates.
2. We never need an excuse to go hang at the fab-tastic Olympic Sculpture Park, but the Thursday series of free concerts and food trucks is an added bonus. It’s part of the Get Outsummer series. The music starts at 5:30, but the early birds start staking out their picnic spots much earlier. (What’s the dealie-o with those giant pillows?) The snack bar’s open inside during summer months, also selling beer and wine that can be enjoyed outside during the shows, but it’s hard to resist the fragrance beckoning from the Curry Now truck.
