He also went to the Shell Station in Beacon Hill for some catfish, picked up his BBQ kit from Jack's BBQ for the Smoked Meats Master Class, and went to Woodinville to Bobae for a sneak peek of the Bobae X Macadons Macarons collaboration.
Meanwhile, Monica took advantage of Tutta Bella's Buy 3 get 1 free pizza deal, devoured a slice of cake from Cakes of Paradise, and had Dynamite Chicken at the Ethan Stowell pop-up. Also, she went on a massive food crawl in Renton over the weekend visiting Boon Boona, O'Cha Thai Kitchen and Bar, Melrose Grill, Dock and Drink at the Hyatt Lake Washington, Blossom, Fit Bar Cafe, and Chuck's Donuts. Now that's a lot of eating!
