Cookies Country Chicken practices fried chicken-based community outreach from Pioneer Square. by Meg van Huygen The Barn Burner and a fried catfish meal (Fridays only!) at Cookie's Country Chicken. Meg van HuygenIt's weird because at first you can’t tell if Quality Athletics is open. The smart metal letters spelling out the restaurant’s name still poke up from the awning on South King Street, and the patio still fills with people who look like they would hang out at Quality Athletics. Look again, though, because instead of yupgraded pub grub, they’re all chowing down on Southern fried chicken. I mean, you don’t even need to look—the smell hits you first. On a Mariners’ game day, I floated through the door on a cartoon aroma cloud to find that Quality Athletics was gone. Burb’s Burgers and Cookie’s Country Chicken now share the space. Most of the crowd, it seemed, had followed the...

Also included: A short dissertation on French ham. by Meg van Huygen Jambon de Paris with Brie on a baguette; a thing of butter, a thing of beauty. Meg van HuygenIf you ever go to France, you will meet the jambon-beurre. Like most French food, the sandwich is both simple and luxurious: A fresh baguette—usually the long, skinny ficelle—sliced lengthwise, spread with Euro butter on both sides, and dressed with a few thin slices of ham folded somewhat labially into the breadslot. Cheese options typically include Brie, Camembert, or Gruyère. Occasionally, there are cornichons. Very often, there’s no cheese or pickles, and it’s literally just butter and ham on bread. The dumbfuck American hamburger only recently “usurped” this classic peasant lunch in terms of its popularity in the country, but it still stands as France’s (other) answer to fast food. Delicious, fast, cheap, portable. If you go to a cafe...
Pretend you're a sea creature while you swim and watch Luca at the Evergreen Community Aquatic Center this Saturday. by Matt Baume Pretend you're a sea creature while you swim and watch Luca at the Evergreen Community Aquatic Center this Saturday. Pixar RUNNING THROUGH AUG 7: SUSANNA BLUHM'S THE MONKEY-ROPE AT J. RINEHART GALLERYSusanna Bluhm's "At the Beach (the Pequod Meets the Virgin)" feels like it's calling me to Florida..... Courtesy of J. Rinehart GalleryThe brushstrokes in Susanna Bluhm's paintings are thick—there's no delicacy about them. Not in the shrubs that cover her mountainscapes nor in the storm clouds that intimidate her beach scenes. Not even in her still life of cinnamon muffins that seem to occupy a light-filled room. But that thickness invites you to get lost in Bluhm's large, semi-abstract works that depict the corners of neighborhoods, restaurants, and beaches across the United States. In The Monkey-Rope at J....

It used to be that if you wanted ice cream in Paris, you went to Berthillon. While there were other notable places on my list (circa 2007), if you wanted a scoop of ice cream after dark in other parts of the cities, you were out of luck. Like bakeries, ice cream options tend to be few and far between in the evening, and there... ...
