Hi from Seattle.

Good morning from gray but luscious Seattle. We're excitedly prepping for the first two screenings of our Girl Walk // All Day tour, and exploring with friends Scott + Jess. It's my first-ever trip here, so I'm learning my way around and eager to try what seems like 1,000 great restaurants and bars.

Saturday, February 11th: Our big Seattle Premiere at Neumo's on Capitol Hill with DJs Tigerbeat and RadJaw. Special performance by Anne Marsen. DANCING! $12 (adv) / 21+ [TICKETS]

Tuesday, February 14th: On Valentine’s Day we’ve got a one-night-only 20-person screening at the gorgeous restaurant, Delancey (owned by Molly Wizenberg of Orangette and her husband Brandon). Guest Chef Matt Costello will prepare an amazing 5+ course meal with wine and cocktail pairings, to be followed by a screening of the film. A pair of tickets just freed up and promise: this is going to be an incredibly special screening for a tiny audience. If you're still looking for V-day plans, I hope you'll join us. [TICKETS]

Currently looking at / reading / cooking from:
+ Jennilee Marigomen's series From the See
+ Polaroids of Ed Ruscha for Band of Outsiders
+ M.I.A. Shouldn't Have Apologized by Sascha Frere Jones
+ OEN interviews photographer Brian W. Ferry of The Blue Hour
+ PLENTY, Yotam Ottolenghi's cookbook about the beautiful possibilities of vegetables. I own a LOT of cookbooks and my brother gifted me this a few weeks ago and it is a real trophy in the pile. This is vegetarian, yes, but not about restriction, and entirely about possibility.
