Sexy Feast: Columbia City Ale House’s Tuna Melt Lights Up Your Sex Life

Recently, I stopped in for a sandwich at the Columbia City Ale House. The menu is full of superlatives, including the best Chicken Sandwich, Caesar Salad, and Reuben Sandwich in Seattle, as well as the best Gumbo “anywhere.” How can a restaurant live up to…

Sexy Feast: Zippy’s Giant Sex Lesson Kicks Butt

Zippy’s Giant Burgers in White Center is Seattle’s hamburger mecca for many. Buns are good, as are the patties—made with chuck that’s ground daily and cooked to the point of an agreeably salty crust. I bypass the shakes for a pick from a cooler full…
