Seattle Art Museum, Taste & Kurt Cobain Seattle Art Museum, Taste & Kurt Cobain

Do you remember what you did during Memorial Day weekend? Sometimes when people ask me on Monday, “How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?” I totally blackout. Zilch. Nothing.

I am not a big fan of the kids menu provided by restaurants. After spending a week on vacation and eating out 1-3 times a day, I like it even less. (More about that coming soon). The common kids menu offers simple food for outrageous prices, mostly something cheesy, with a reward of cookie or […]
