Casco Antiguo

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — Have you heard? The Seahawks are playing the Green Bay Packers on Sunday for the NFC Championship. And now, Bainbridge Island City Manager Douglas Schulze issued a decree banning cheese in City Hall on "Blue Friday." "Due to the relationship between the Green Bay Packers, their fans, and cheese, the possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products shall be banned in Bainbridge Island City Hall on Friday, January 16, 2015," it reads.

HANGRY WIRE — When an employee at a restaurant in North Seattle started shouting and wielding a pot of tea on Sunday evening, staff phoned police. The man, reports SPD Blotter, stumbled into a table and collapsed. When officers arrived and asked the man if he needed medical treatment, he "responded by swinging and kicking at police, missing them by a distance of several feet." He then attempted to bite the officers. The culprit, according to medics? Low blood sugar. The man calmed down after receiving an IV, and, looking confused, was unable to remember the incident. He was served, "a bowl of noodles to further aid his return to equilibrium" as officials left the scene.

PIONEER SQUARE — Casco Antiguo quietly opened Monday night in the former Calozzi's space on Occidental Ave. S. and Eater has a preview of the menu. A dining room sits in front of the space with a bar pouring mezcal and margaritas on tap in back. The restaurant serves chorizo sopes and fish tacos with mango salsa till 10 p.m. Enter through an alley entrance behind the restaurant after 10 and stay till midnight.
