Thundering Hooves rides off into the sunset

By Iron Chef Leftovers

I am a regular customer of Thundering Hooves. I like their products (pastured, humanely raised livestock out near Spokane), their prices are good and one of their pickup locations was less than a mile from the Iron Chef homestead. Needless to say, I was sad when I read their newsletter today:


Should Seattle be jealous of Vancouver?

By Iron Chef Leftovers

About a month and a half ago, there was an article in The Stranger that contained the 10 reasons why Seattle should be jealous of Vancouver BC. I have spent a bunch of time in Vancouver and I love the city (and Mrs. Iron Chef is convinced that I am part […]

by A.J. Coltrane

UW Washington guard Venoy Overton has been suspended for the duration of the Pac-10 tournament as a result of criminal charges:

The gross-misdemeanor charge against Overton stems from a Jan. 8 incident in which Seattle police say he met with two 16-year-old girls and took them to his sister’s apartment in South […]

Paying Off the Safeco Field Debt

By Blaidd Drwg

Will someone please explain this to me – The Kingdome, which cost $67 million to build originally and another $51 million to fix when the roof fell in, and was blown up in 2000, won’t be paid off until sometime in the second half of this decade. Safeco Field, which cost $340 […]
