Welcome to The Savory 6, a weekly column featuring six weekly questions for one of the guests on our show. Check, Please! Northwest is all about dining out, but that’s not the only thing that happens at the table. When you put three strangers together and encourage banter, anything can happen! It’s a happy byproduct of the show and it’s one of my favorite parts—getting to know all of these food-loving folks. In this weekly article, we get to dig a little deeper into one of our guest’s culinary quirks and preferences.

MUSIC VIDEO MONDAY featuring Rose Windows' "Wartime Lovers"



Self-described "Cascadian Rock band," Rose Windows' video for their song "Wartime Lovers" exudes that Cascadia flavor. Made as part of filmmaker/artist Jessi Southern's traveling music video collaboration Fool's Road, this video was planned and shot within only 8 days of Jessi and the band's first meeting. What do you think of the result?

Buy the DVD here, and don't forget to tune in to FIX on May 9 at 9p.

The Many Faces of Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch

Remember that years-long wait between Sherlock series 2 and 3? Turns out Benedict Cumberbatch was busy. Amie Simon reports on some of his many roles that may or may not be catalogued in his “mind palace.”

Sherlock fans know English actor Benedict Cumberbatch as the devastatingly smart, socially awkward, and very smug modern sleuth solving crimes in 21st century London, but on May 11 they’ll have a chance to see him in a totally different role: as bearded, red-headed painter Vincent Van Gogh.
