Ladies, Bring Your Tramps To Skylark On Valentine's Day...and Valentine's Night

January 28, 2010

Seattle, WA - Sunday, February 14th, 2010 – Skylark Cafe & Club is hosting our third annual Valentine's evening with dinner, dessert, a bottle of wine and live music. This year we are also adding a romantic brunch to the offering...if "romantic" means a full carafe of mimosas to you. And doesn't it always?

Sunday brunch for two on 2/14 is just $30 and includes:

• two mixed-berry flapjacks
• an egg breakfast with two eggs, home fries, and your choice of meat (bacon, Black Forest ham, sausage links)
• a mimosa carafe (1 liter)

Dinner for two on 2/14 is just $40 and includes:

• starter salad
• spaghetti and meatballs family-style
• an amazing dessert from Shoofly Pie Company in West Seattle
• a bottle of Cycles Gladiator Syrah

Skylark’s regular menu and beverages will also be available all day and night. No reservation is necessary, just come on down and grab a table unless you have eight or more people in your party (then a phone call is appreciated). Weekend brunches are 9:00am to 3:00pm. Valentine's dinner will be seated from 5:00pm to 10:00pm while supplies last.

Live music in the evening will transport you with two excellent female vocalists:

8:00pm  Indie folk band LEMOLO
9:00pm    Down-tempo electroacoustic band THE DEEPSLEEP NARCOTICS COMPANY

This Sunday 1/24 100% of Brunch Profits Go To Haiti

Seattle Restaurants Support HAITI Disaster Relief on Sunday January 24, 2010

After hearing that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the island nation of Haiti on January 12th, local Seattle resident Monica Mendoza made her own personal donation to NetHope to support disaster relief efforts.  Yet, as she watched the constant updates of the unbelievable crisis the people of Haiti are facing on the news and on online she was moved to do more. 

She got to work quickly to begin organizing Dine Out Seattle for Haiti.  She made countless number of phone calls and wrote several emails reaching out to many of the local restaurants in Seattle and the surrounding area asking them to directly donate a percentage of that night's proceeds to NetHope or the organization of their choice.

Through her efforts she has proven that one person can make a difference and has pulled together the support of fourteen Seattle area restaurants so far which includes:
    •    Dinette
    •    Restaurant Zoe
    •    Quinn's Pub
    •    Le Gourmand
    •    La Rustica
    •    Skylark Café (donating 100% of Sunday brunch proceeds)
    •    La Isla - Puerto Rican food in Ballard
    •    Café Venus (donating a % of Brunch/Sunday night karaoke proceeds)
    •    Tavolata
    •    How To Cook A Wolf
    •    Barking Frog - in Woodinville
    •    Springhill
    •    Feedback Lounge
    •    Mission Bar

On her Facebook invite Monica states, “this is a devastating blow to a country that has already suffered a great deal for decades due to poverty, violence and unrest.”  She hopes that a great number of Seattle residents will make plans to dine out for Haiti at one of the participating restaurants on Sunday January 24 as well as make their own personal contribution to relief efforts in Haiti.

Here at Skylark, we hope you'll spend some time with us in between 9:00am and 3:00pm on Sunday January 24th for a delicious weekend brunch, and then perhaps head to another participating restaurant above for dinner. Double donations to a suffering nation!

Memphis Radio Kings Bring Their "Cow Punk Boogie" to Skylark Saturday January 9th

These westside favorites are finally performing on the Skylark stage, and it will be a fabulous party. Says a writer on Rhapsody Music Service:

"Fans of the Americana sound who feel betrayed by their heroes leaving the twang in the dust to pursue more radio-friendly music may now bow down to the Memphis Radio Kings, who fuse some of that Bo Diddley rhythm with dexterous Telecaster picking and melodies that stick like cactus candy. Oh, and their songs rule."
