This is NOT a Meat Blog

Bryce Digdug recently misnamed this blog Junk Meat in a public place and, needless to say, turned a bright shade of red as he realized his gaff. Perhaps that is why pork and other mammal meat products just can’t seem to stop chasing poor Junk Thief, even in the land of salmon and blueberry pie, as you can see from the slide show below.

Many people who’ve been to Seattle’s Capital Hill know of the famed Dick’s on Broadway that has even been featured in a Sir Mix-a-Lot tune. However, how many of you have been driven there at midnight on a Wednesday night by Dick himself, owner of all five landmark Dick's Drive-Ins.

Kiss Junkster’s ring finger for being offered such an honor. He can’t go into too many details here but will offer that Dick proved to be a real gentleman and an intellectual dedicated to social change, ending homelessness and addressing racism. Those who really want details can email Junk Thief if you can’t wait to hear more.

Another meeting of a Seattle entrepreneur was with Allan, proprieter of The Great Wind Up in Pike Place Market, a really cool store with nothing but wind up toys, especially some great robots. He was introduced to Junk Thief by Salty Miss Jill, who far across the Rockies managed to unwittingly facilitate this convergence of two Pacific Coast bloggers.

Ain’t this internet thang just too much?

I'm so glad you and Alan got to meet! How funny that I introduced two people I've never met before. What a world we live in.

OH! And the meat! So much of it! The Porkwatch radar is off the charts!

Mmmm...meat. Meat!

Sorry, that's all I can manage on a Friday as noon approaches.

Jill - For a salmon town, Seattle sure has its share of pork. Don't the pigs swim upstream there?

Huntington - My energy level is at the same spot, especially with all this damp, wet weather. I want to be back in sunny Seattle!

truer words were never written!

I do hope allan gave you a bacon vs tofu set - though it would be a treasure - but one man's junk is another man's treasure...

methinks you are gonna love the west side market - just make sure I come along as your guide!!

Kim - Does the west side market have anything that can compete with those hot fish Pike Place Market guys throwing monkfish and salmon around? I could watch them all day.
