A very special tribute of good, for so many bad that happened yesterday. This goes out especially for a few folks...a staff member, whom was deeply affected by the terrible and horrific tragedy,  Enter the day...5 murders, 1 suicide, several wounded, a distraught and shaken community ending in utter sorrow, confusion, question and darkness. And...cool, kick-ass food being served up for some very special guests, celebrating life and happiness, passion, taste and all that is good. Bizarre...yes! My heart goes out to all the families, friends, patrons of Cafe Racer and community of Seattle who have been touched and scarred by this palette of death placed upon the canvas of those involved. Hopefully...this passion of cooking that I hold so close will in some small, minute way, bring a sliver of good feelings in the wake of all that has taken place. We will heal. We will push ahead. We will honor the people who have passed by doing good for those still with us. This tribute is is my own delicious dedication in hopes that it brings a smile at a time of need. God bless you all, both living and passed.
