Seattle Beer Week is Here!

The 2011 Seattle Beer Week kicks off tomorrow May 19th, and the beer will be poured until May 29th.  The concept of Seattle Beer Week is similar to that off Seattle Restaurant Week wherein a number of local breweries and retailers will be offering drink specials, unique beers, tastings and other awesome treats.  Seattle Beer Week will have its official kick off at Maritime Brewery with the tapping of the first beer.  If you enjoy a good Happy Hour that lasts all day, then make sure to look at this schedule of events, which includes locations and times.  For more information on SBW, please visit the official website.

Pritty Boys Family Pizza Opening in Madrona

Madrona PizzaPritty Boys Family Pizza had a food booth at Madrona Mayfair this past Saturday – which was not only a good place to get pizza, but also a place to find the scuttlebutt about the restaurant.  First of all, the pizza was very good.  The peperoni were small (about half the size of peperoni on typical pizza) and flavorful.  I did pat it with a napkin to soak up some grease, but to me that is not a bad thing.

Since I have been anxiously awaiting their restaurant, I asked when they expected to open.  They told me that there was no official opening date because they have had some delays, but they were trying to open next weekend.  So whether it is this weekend or not, it is good news that Pritty Boy Family Pizzeria is coming soon to Madrona.

In addition, to speaking to the pizzeria employee at Mayfair, I walked by the restaurant this weekend.  The place is really shaping up.  In the northwest corner of the restaurant, they have a play area set up with a various toys for small kids to play with.  In the south end of the restaurant, they had a video game machine.  This portion of the restaurant is set up for young teenagers.  With about 20 tables, the Madrona pizzeria should be a popular place for Seattle families to hang out whether their kids are 2 or 14.
