Meet Meat (and Produce and Cake)

I've not been yet, but Derek Young '96 writes on Exit133 that Dave's Meat and Produce is now open, located between campus and the Stadium District just off of 21st. A good alternative to Metropolitan Market.

Sadly, I see that Dad's Bakery on Sixth has already folded. I think it must be hard to run an old-style donut shop these days. However, we've got Corina's just down Sixth, and if you haven't had one of their desserts...well, I have two words for you: Chocolate Cheesecake. Here's a fascinating article on the owners, Walter and Jessica Gaya, and Walter's path from Argentina to fighting and photographing in Iraq to baking in Tacoma.
