Going for Seconds is a blog whose mission is to bring the world of food and wine to you informally. It will be your pocket atlas for what to eat, what to drink, where to go, what to read, and what to know.

We’ll be spending most of our time in Seattle, yet keeping an eye on the greater Northwest and other stuff near and far. We’ll visit some restaurants and share my experiences there; I’m no critic, just a dude that really likes food.

I love to eat and drink. And I love sharing whatever little bit of information that I have. Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope to see you around the kitchen table ready to get full!

If you want to share food stories with me or have any suggestions, please email me. Hit me off at:

  2. i strongly feel that i should be added to “other people who like to eat and drink.” my blog may not be foodie-based, but i like to eat and drink like it’s my last day on earth, every day 🙂

  3. Hi Frank, Since you’re a fan of oysters I wanted to let you know we’re having a contest and giving away 4 dozen Puget Sound oysters to the person who best answers “What would you do with 48 free oysters?” (The winner will be voted on by our readers)

  5. Hi Frank,

    Just wanted to say it was great to meet you and your “muse” last Sunday at the Ballard Farmers Market.

    I hope you’re enjoying experimenting with the salt. Let me know if you have any questions about their applications.
