Our Sunday will be a little more exciting than usual this weekend. The Pike Place Market Foundation is hosting an event featuring Seattle Rock Icons performing live on the roof of the Pike Place Market. Rawpower: A Tribute to Iggy and The Stooges includes food and drinks, VIP access to the performers after the show and of course an up close and personal concert featuring former members of Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses, Screaming Trees and Mudhoney. Check out the details here, tickets are still available. Proceeds benefit the Pike Place Market Expansion Project.
Pike Place Market Sunday, August 23rd 6:00pm
We’ve been watching with bated breath as we see items going in and out of the Sushi Kashiba kitchen. With windows wrapped in plastic, it’s been hard to spy on what’s happening inside. We are all eagerly anticipating the opening of Sushi Kashiba this fall and Seattle Eater posted yesterday that end of October the wait may be over! We’ve seen the plans, as seen in the photo here and looking forward to all the “sushi power” Kashiba will bring to the courtyard of the Inn at the Market and the Pike Place Market.
We’re enjoying Fleet Week in Seattle! It’s been fun seeing the sailors around town and watching the ships in the bay. The next few days you can tour some of the ships as part of the Boeing Maritime Celebration on Piers 66, 69 and 90. The Inn at the Market is just a short walk down to the water front. We’ve also been seeing the Blue Angels practicing up above preparing for their daily show this weekend for Seafair Weekend. Looking forward to all the water fun on Lake Washington that is part of this annual Seattle tradition.
Their slogan is “honest to goodness, kick-ass biscuits” and we kind of have to agree. This great new addition to the Pike Place Market, Honest Biscuits, features mouth-watering biscuit goodness straight up and gluten free. The menu offers butter/jam biscuits, sandwiches, two different kinds of gravy and grits! We recently tried “The MacGregor” which features bacon from Bavarian Meats, caramelized onions and Beecher’s Flagship Cheese. Many of the menu items feature local favorites from the Market. Honest Biscuits is located in the Atrium of the Economy Building (just upstairs across from the giant squid). We recommend giving them a try as soon as possible!
Honest Biscuits is open daily 8am-5pm
