Two bits of red meat for you, so to speak. First one is a reader recommendation request, second is more like a reader invitation.
READER RECOMMENDATION REQUEST: Someone who just moved back to West Seattle after 12 years away is hungering for a “good old-fashioned butcher shop” somewhere in the area. Is there one? Maybe even White Center or Georgetown?
READER INVITATION FOR OTHERS IN WSB-LAND: Reader Megan e-mailed us looking for others to join her in a meat-buying club:

Hi! We are starting up a West Seattle/White Center meat buying club.
Let me explain! My partner and I are trying to eat local and eat healthier. After doing some investigation we found a great meat source in Walla Walla that delivers all sorts of meats that are grass feed/ pasture finished. This company already delivers to many areas up North and in October will be delivering to Capitol Hill. In order to get a delivery a $1000 (total not individual) must be ordered. The delivery goes to the neighborhood coordinator(me) and everyone meets at that person’s house on the specified date and time with their coolers ready! If people are interested please check out the web site http://www.thunderinghooves.net/.
Our buying club name is West Seattle Meateaters and if we have enough orders our 1st delivery will be October 20th @ 8 AM. The plan is to get deliveries monthly but if we don’t get enough orders we will have to order quarterly.
