After an overwhelming initial response to our new cupcakes we have decided to start taking orders on them. We will be selling them by the dozen at $20.00 dollars a dozen. Right now we are only doing vanilla cupcakes with assorted colored butter creams. These cupcakes as well as the icings are all made from scratch right here at Salt daily. Orders just need to be put in 24 hrs in advance. So think birthdays,summer barbeque's, holidays, Monday's, Thursday's....whatever the occassion, every day is a good cupcake day!! Enjoy!

Here is just something that happened a few weeks ago and thought I'd share because it really made all of us here almost pee our pants!
Well, let me start by saying we get quite a few salmon delivered here at Salt almost daily. That being said, we are left with quite a few salmon "heads" when we are done butchering them in the kitchen, and we're always looking for fun things to do with them. These fun things might include like finding a waiters keys and hiding one in one's car, or strategically placing one above a cracked door, or maybe putting one in the bottom of a dish-dawgs sink. Well, on said night, one of the kitchen staff thought it might be funny to tie one of the heads to the bumper of one of the waiters, whom will remain anonymous, (Erions)car. So after securely tieing the head with butchers twine to the car, with about 20' of extra length, the plan was hatched. So on a Sat night after work, said waiter pulled out of the parking lot and proceeded to drive about 20 mins home north on 206. Could you just imagine being behind this guy with a string attached to his car and dragging home a fish head?
Apparently he made it all the way home before realizing he had something attached to his car, and it was still intact.....Just one of those funny restaurant things....You're a good sport Mr. Erion!
I love this business.
Rogue "Dead Guy Ale".......Gratefully dedicated to the Rogue in each of us. In the early 1990s Dead Guy Ale was created as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved popular and was incorporated into a bottled product a few years later with Maierbock as the elixir. Strangely, the association with the Grateful Dead is pure coincidence.
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogues proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast. It is deep honey in color with a malty aroma, rich hearty flavor and a well balanced finish. Dead Guy is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan malts, along with Perle and Saaz Hops. Dead Guy Ale is available in 22-ounce bottles, 12-ounce 6-pack, and on draft.
