Over the air on NPR this morning was a report that the owner of Cafe Septieme fired the manager for not forcing the staff to work during yesterday's protest marches. The PI confirms the story.

The owner's name? Victor Santiago.

It seems the rapid decline in quality caught up to Bacchus, our once-beloved Capitol Hill destination for flaming cheese. The most recent issue of The Stranger has a review of its replacement, Fork. It sounds rather a lot more prissy than the previous tenant's Greek menu, but if nothing else, they kept the murals.

P.S. - They serve GOOSE!

Who wants to go with me next week to try Seattle's only Peruvian restaurant sometime next week? [livejournal.com profile] datavore is a big sissybritches who doesn't want to try new food.

Thursday: Excellent conversation over Ethiopian with [livejournal.com profile] ivolucien at Meskel in the Central District, half a block from the now-defunct La Louisiana. Similar menu to Queen Sheba on Capitol Hill, but much better food.

Friday: Hopped the Trolley to Pioneer Square after work to peruse the selection at Magic Mouse. Struggled to find educational toys both age-appropriate and not gender-biased, ended up with this. Also picked up this for the dog. Must remember to call it George, as Secret Service has no sense of humor for phrases such as 'kill the' p-word. Also snagged Devil Duckie and Pirate bandaids, arrr!

Saturday: Birthday party for [livejournal.com profile] divinemisso. Much amusement to be had watching the Bug open gifts and charm her favorite grown-ups. Had my turn holding the new baby, who was passed from person to person, and performed admirably under the circumstances. Kept trying to be polite and say my goodbyes at a reasonable hour, but got drawn into scintillating conversation with interesting people, and didn't head home until 8pm. High point of the day was Olivia Dress-Up Hour, in which she decided to wear all her new clothes at once - dress, Elmo t-shirt, sweatshirt, knee socks, two pairs of pajama sleepers, shoes from a dress-up doll, and rain hat from a bathtub toy. Quote of the day: "She's such a clothes horse." "She looks more like a clothes rack!"

Sunday: Lamed out on book-and-mathom-trading party at [livejournal.com profile] beaq's, as I am Lamey McLamerson of Lameville, Lameonia. Had a mountain-and-a-half of laundry to do, was feeling a bit socialled-out, and wanted to spend some time with the dog. Five loads later, still not done. Still to be done: three loads of sheets both old and new, two of towels, two of mattress pads, miscellaneous whites, some dry-clean-onlies, and a batch of too-delicate-for-the-delicate-cycles. Oh, and it's almost time to rewash the blankets that didn't make it into storage last year...

On the agenda this week: Monday night with [livejournal.com profile] datavore, Tuesday dinner at [livejournal.com profile] dreamingcrow and [livejournal.com profile] niac's, Wednesday at Cedars with the usual suspects, Friday opening-night Serenity outing with [livejournal.com profile] ivolucien and co.

In the meantime, autumn has Seattle firmly in its grip -- the weather is cooling, the trees are turning, and I'm remembering why this is my favorite time of year. Even the dog has been better behaved, adjusting quite well to being crated while we're at work. Other than some dishes overturned, and some minor digging at the crate door, no incidents so far.

One of my favorite restaurants, La Louisiana in the Central district, is going out of business. They close their doors on January 15th.

Bah. Looks like I'm going to have to sell my soul for decent gumbo, jambalaya, and etouffee. AGAIN.

I am in culinary heaven. La Louisiana in the Central District -- best Cajun food I've had in years. On par with Montage in Portland, but much more geographically accessible.

Damn, but that was a good etouffee...
