Another Art Show at Retrofit Home

It's beautifully record-hot in Seattle this week. Today the temperature at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport hit 98 degrees at 5:30 p.m., surpassing the record of 95 degrees set in 1951, according to the National Weather Service.

Many are wilting, but I love it. Last night I walked up First Hill and Capitol Hill at 5:30 p.m.




I asked my husband if to meet me at Tango, where we first met seven years and nine days ago. We've been meaning to celebrate that anniversary there.

Unlike the night we met -- when our party of five ended up having to find another place that had a free table -- we were able to get seats. Cheers!


Then we headed up to Retrofit Home, where my friend Stephanie had an art opening. Her work looks amazing!


Great texture.


I'm really impressed.






Several pieces were red-dotted by the time we left last night, which made our subsequent trip to La Spiga feel especially celebratory.


Plus, it was just a gorgeous hot Seattle summer night.

Beautiful art.

La Spiga looks celebratorily post-industrial urban renewal.

What did you eat?

I had lasagna.

I had an even better meal at someone's house tonight, though. Tomato salad with buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. Rosemary roasted potatoes. Roasted corn on the cob. Barbecued wild salmon. Dark chocolate with crystallized ginger.

Are you a ginger lover too? I love ginger. The ginger slices and wasabi is by far my favorite part of going out for sushi.

The rosemary roasted potatoes would be the thing I'm craving most right now, sans kitchen. We had BBQ last weekend, which I love. But I haven't had anything *roasted* in what seems like forever.

Oh, yes. Ginger. Ginger plum pie. Ginger ale with vodka and lemon (a Moscow Mule). A Dark and Stormy. Ginger snaps. Ginger anything.
