SEATTLE— Eater's new beer column Pints of Interest kicks off in The Yard, Greenwood's laid back pub with an ever-rotating roster of pilsners, IPAs, and ciders from the Northwest, Colorado, and Utah. Check out a recent taplist and take a photo tour of the popular neighborhood spot. [ESEA]

VANCOUVER— If you're planning a trip up the I-5 in the next few weeks, here are Vancouver's most anticipated openings to look out for, including a hot new restaurant from TV's Vikram Vij and a craft cocktail-slinging pizzeria from the award-winning nose-to-tail meat-forward team at Wildebeest — out in the 'burbs. It's also Heatmap Update time; here are the coolest new spots in town, from Southern-inspired comfort food to award-winning Chinese cuisine, it's all here. [EVAN]

BELLEVUE— Featuring weird and wonderful salvaged finds including church windows from Portland, lanterns from Coney Island, and the facade from a psychiatric hospital from New York State, Tavern Hall is headed for the downtown Bellevue. The ambitious new project from Marc and Bret Chatalas (Cactus) and Deming Maclise and James Weimann (Stoneburner, Von Trapp's, Bastille, Macleod's, Poquitos) will serve a dressed-up comfort food menu, including hearth-baked pretzels and braised brisket sandwiches. Eater Seattle has details. [ESEA]

VANCOUVER— Scandals in Vancouver this week as David Hawksworth, chef at the James Beard-nominated Hawksworth restaurant, caused a stir after the World's Top 50 Restaurants list was announced — with Canada shut out of the list. See what helpful advice he gave to the judges. Also: Lime crisis has hit town — lemon wedges with pho? We can't take this. [EVAN]
