Some Beaconians might be curious about what happened to former Culinary Communion operator Gabriel Claycamp and his pork emporium, The Swinery, after Claycamp decamped from Beacon Hill back to West Seattle last year. It turns out the road has not been entirely smooth (some of the comments on that post are interesting, to say the least), but Claycamp and the Swinery did get a positive write-up from the New York Times’ T Magazine Blog recently.

Elliott Jones of El Centro writes with more news about tasty tamales:
Have you been one of the lucky attendees of El Centro de la Raza’s tamale classes? Chances are, you haven’t – they have been wildly popular and have been selling out quick! Here’s a link to sign up for the next one, on May 15th (they are every 3rd Saturday, by the way).
Our April class is this Saturday, so that means that even though you might not be able to learn how to make them yourself, this month, you can still purchase some! Tamales are $12/dozen and you must order by Wednesday at 5pm.
To order, call Ashley Haugen at 206-957-4611 or e-mail email@example.com.

This looks like the pothole in a sidewalk on the east side of 12th Ave. S, between Judkins and Massachusetts, across the street from the Katy Black Garden. It’s been a hole for at least 12 years.
That’s the same hole alright
