Madrona Moves Up in Seattle Neighborhood Snackdown

Seattle is chalked full of amazing eateries, but which neighborhood has the BEST eats? Seattle Weeklyis determined to find out which neighborhoods are willing to back their local restaurants by competing in  the publication’s 2nd annual Snackdown contest, where neighborhoods are matched up Northeast vs. Southeast,  Ballard vs. Fremont, etc to determine once and for all who is the best eating district.

Last week the Southeast bloc, which consists of Madrona, Mt Baker, the Central District, Beacon Hill, Georgetown, Columbia City and the Rainier Valley will now advance to play in the competitive tournament this week after beating the best of the Northeast. Voting begins today and the Southeast will certainly need it this week, as they go up against last year’s reigning champ neighborhood White Center. If you think Madrona and the rest of the Southeast “hoods” have what it takes, cast your vote to help claim the bragging rights for the Snackdown title.

 

One Night Only Project Comes To Madrona

Last weekend, you may have heard about all the hype in Woodinville, when Skillet Founder Josh Henderson knocked the socks off of guests attending the first of the ultra private series of One Night Only dinners, created by Julien Perry and Melissa Peterman. They created the series to give diners an insider experience unlike anything they could experience outside of that evening; an experience that cannot, and will not ever be repeated. One Night only will run twice a month, matching a top notch local chef with a wine-maker brewer, or other alcohol extraordinaire, and the tickets certainly run a hefty price for this one of a kind experience, between $150-250 per person.

The next dinner will be held on August 26th at Madrona’s Bottlehouse, where Manu Alfau will host a Dominican Christmas feast, to help raise awareness for his new Caribbean sandwich shop in Pioneer Square, and Rob Roy’s Anu Apte will pair drinks. If you’re interested in tickets for this dinner, or want more information on upcoming nights, visit the One Night Only Project.
