Grand Opening: The Green Coconut Tree celebrates its grand opening today from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. serving samples of its Jamaican, Chinese, and Vietnamese specialties.  Oh yes, all three. Read our review of the Lakewood restaurant here.

Washington State Represent: Today through Oct. 11 The Red Hot pairs up with their beer buddies at The Parkway, both pledging to serve nothing but Washington State beers on every handle, which is nice.

Future Things Are Coming: The Stadium District Art and Wine Walk will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2 throughout the district. Tickets are $25, and that money will go toward the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. This event will feature local artists, original artwork, Washington wines, tasty hors d'oeuvres and desserts and music at select locations. For more information, click here.

Food Matters: "Naturally, hotness will secure you a better table." Oh, no.
