Well I went to the Empty Bowls event at our community center, and Romeo got a new bowl! I had a great bowl of spicy Habanero Chili from the Elliot Bay Brewery, a local eatery that makes the best chili's and soups. And like I said, I got to keep the bowl, a handcrafted pottery dog bowl, that Romeo got to eat off of Friday night! The Event raised a whole lot of money for our two local food banks- over $8,000 for each food bank last year alone. I figure they did even better since I heard all 1150 bowls were gone, and a number of folks brought their bowls from last year or bypassed the ceramic bowl and had a paper one instead!
