Three times the past week, I've seen restaurant owners pop a squat to visit with guests. Last night, it happened to me.
The fam and I were checking out the new Ascada Bistro in Queen Anne when the owner came over to ask how dinner was. We asked him about his Jimi Hendrix connection and he took a chair and told some tales. The skeptical journalist side of me was thinking -- can this guy be for reals? While the Hendrix fan in me wanted him to keep dishing.
You decide. Go check out those gold records. They look pretty genuine to me. Not like the "award-winning Memphis ribs" which are baked in the oven, not barbecue!!
