If you live here, or are visiting soon, and have not yet been to the Boat Street Cafe,
it is an absolute must. It is a lovely place, with an AMAZING menu, focusing
on locally grown gems, with very simple, delicious preparations. Last night I attended
a fundraiser for a person who is a friend and employee of the restaurant,
who's family was severely affected by the Tsunami, losing there home,
and all of their belongings. Some fantastic restaurants, shops, and artists
donated items and gift certificates to be auctioned off.
It seemed to be a huge success....
Fresh oysters being shucked before your very eyes...
FRESH local clams in this delicious clam chowder, (that I could NOT stop eating)...
I was finally able to meet Molly Wizenberg, from the fabulous blog, Orangette,
(she is also the author of the wonderful book, A Homemade Life).
It was a fun night, and it reminded me of the importance of community and how much
I love being a part of the one in Seattle...
