    Isn’t this usually the weekend of the BBQ competition at Alki? Is that off for this year? Just wondering. My dog goes nuts for this. Her nose Hoovers the ground on Monday morning.

  • WSB September 11, 2009 (3:41 pm)

    On the Events calendar. They’ll be here NEXT weekend. Which is also a HUGELY busy weekend …

  • toniw September 12, 2009 (9:17 pm)

    I LOVE PCC. Allergen-free foods, great labeling, and a set of values by which it chooses its products. Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are nothing like it!

Sorry, comment time is over.
