|Hot chocolate, cream and the creamy cup of yogurt at the back|
It wouldn't be a better place to spend a rainy and windy afternoon. The Café Presse knows to host hungry for good coffee or chocolat chaud. The cappuccino may not be the most impressive one but the chocolat chaud comes in two separate cups: one with the hot chocolate, the other has the cream. Blend them together or just take a bite of the cream, then dive it into the chocolate cup. Either way it's pure indulgence.

It was a fun, vibrant and well-organized event. Held at 220 2nd Avenue S, the 220&Change space hosted over hundred guests from the Pioneer Square neighborhood and elsewhere. Attendees had the opportunity to explore the building and what it has to offer.
On the fourth floor, the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, other known as BGI making a brand new debut that was well received with plenty of Finnriver Cider and Pinkabella Cupcakes.

On the third floor, daring guests could tailgate before the Big Game with Hilliard's Beer and Altstadt Pretzels while learning more about the Social Venture Partners.
On the second floor, the Impact Hub offered Sake and Intrigue Chocolates while explaining what their mission is: all about a community "hub" and shared work space for purpose-driven ventures.
The first floor, an Impact Hub space, was open to Proletariat Wine, Ninkasi Brewing and some cocktails together with tastes from local restaurants, La Bodega and also Dry Soda.
Between tailgating, touring the space and tasting sample foods, I can say with no doubt that the space is awesome with inspiring people, social-driven ideas and a lot more!

Happy 2014 dear friends and readers!
I celebrated the beginning of this year at my "locale", Feedback Lounge. This cool hang-out with the impressive bar that includes hundreds of well presented liquor bottles is a small oasis in West Seattle. The house cocktails are exclusive. I had a hard time to make my mind between a Dante's Shadow and a Terra Firma Stomp, both tequila libations, the first sour, the second spicy. I opted for the first and didn't regret it. It was maybe a little more sour than expected but still a festive way to usher in 2014.
|Yes, it's upside down! - The Dante's Shadow|
My dear friend and partner had the 1002 Injuries, made with scotch, cherry hooch and amontillado. Too strong for my taste and not for the faint. Worth mentioning all the same...
The Feedback Lounge has a full menu for nibbling and serious eating and a separate happy hour menu as well.
Those who want to learn more about the art of cocktail making can join the Cocktail Club, every Thursday at 6 PM. I plan to go soon. Updates will be posted here.
Feedback Lounge opens daily from 4 PM to 2 AM and at 11: 30 AM to 2 AM on the weekends.
Seattle Discoveries is born today. Each month Fully booked will explore interesting bars, cafes and restaurants in the Seattle area and report briefly about them. Some hot pho and North Western dungeness crab are coming soon next to you!
Happy New Year with lots of culinary explorations, tasty food and colorful cocktails!

Bocelli's Sparkling Brut Rosé Wine is pleasant, easy to drink and has the perfect color. Excellent as an aperitif but also with finger food and canapés, it may well be a nice selection to your festive cellar.
