150 Local restaurants. One day. All Day.

Here is the Participating Restaurants

Dine at a participating Dining Out For Life restaurant on Thursday, April 29 and 30% of your bill will be donated back to Lifelong AIDS Alliance and the fight against illness and hunger in our community. There has never been a better time to plan a big dinner party with your friends and family! Join Lifelong and thousands of supporters throughout the region for the biggest dining event of the year!

I recommend all of you to go dine out & Save a Life!

Just a heads up…

Mariposa at Neiman Marcus – The Bravern – 3rd floor

will be adding a haute flair to their menu in 2 days.

Trust me, we got our hands on the new menu too.

Wait & See

If you already visited Mariposa & seen their menu,
I am letting you know that there will be 3-4 items added to the new Menu and a few removed!

I’m getting hungry now. I guess, I’ll make another reservation for Friday!


According to a recent response on Chance to Win a $50 GC to Nordstroms, a reader asked to list my recommendations or my favorite places to go… [Maybe it’s about where to shop] but today, I would like to list my FAVORITE RESTAURANT of the MONTH!! [drum roll please….]

I mentioned about John Howie Steak & Seastar in a post back in October, [Best Places to Eat in Bellevue] were my favorite at the time… Now GUESS WHAT?! It still is!! John Howie Steak is the place to be whether its for lunch with your fellow co-workers or having a romantic dinner with your partner.

After a exhausting day of shopping at the Bravern, I find myself constantly wanting to go back to John Howie Steak. Everyone at Seastar [Bellevue or Seattle] and at John Howie Steak strive for perfection & excellence in fine dining. Even though I have some issues at other places [which I will not list], I will always come back for more to John Howie Steak.

My recent entrees:

– Garlic Shrimp Farfelle & Tanqueray 10 + Tonic
– Bay Shrimp Salad + a glass of Riesling [can’t remember but it’s amazing].

Oh by the way, they will be adding/removing a few items on their Menu tomorrow. I have not been disappointed with John Howie Steak at all.

If I was allowed, I give them 5/5 stars! [ I’ll see you all soon! ] Excited for another lunch @ John Howie on Thursday at noon with great friends! 😀

Mario Cupcakes = delicious.
If I got this for my 23rd birthday…
I’d put this in an airtight/waterproof container
… to reserve these cupcakes for the entire year!

that’s a serious “OoOh La LA LA!!!”

Whew! What a long weekend. It seemed like FOREVER!!! Since Black Friday is over, now it’s Cyber Monday. Do you live on the Eastside? How about some “shopping for thought”.
