It’s so often the question, “where should I take him or her on our date?”! Well here are a couple of great date night restaurant ideas for Saturday’s and Sunday’s that are sure to please both female or male!
Make reservations for the “Tommy Room” at “Yama at the Galleria” in Bellevue!!
This is going to be one of you & your dates most fun, exciting & unique dining experiences!
When you dine in the Tommy Room at Yama’s on the Eastside, you will literally be dining in a sunken floor, with bamboo mats and romantic chiffon room dividers and it will undoubtedly impress your date with your creativity in making the date fun and different – apart from the regular typical dining.
The sushi is fresh, succulant and creatively decorative, fun and exciting! You will be experiencing a true celebrity chef’s meal when you dine, because the incomparable
Mr. “Warren Seta” is the chef, and with restaurants in Las Vegas and Hawaii and soon one opening in Renton, called, “Blossom”, you will certainly want to get his autograph – his talent and status is beyond compare! Inspired by Chef Warren’s upbringing in Hawaii and his love of tapas they offer you the best Asian fusion cuisine and sushi. The combination of European cooking techniques with Asian flavors is sure to please and entice the palate while the sushi at Yama is made to emphasize the freshness of the fish. The sushi menu is filled with traditional offerings and the fish is paired with the finest boutique sushi rice. Happy Hour is offered daily in the Lounge and Sushi Bar where the menu features tapas and sushi items.
Benson Hill residents should be encouraged by this email we just received from Mayor Law. This was some really great police work!
Dear Council Members,
Renton Police Officer Eric Gordon did some great police work for our new
residents in the Benson Hill/Cascade neighborhood. He responded to a residential
burglary yesterday where thousands of dollars in jewelry and other items were
taken. Several hours later, he made a routine traffic stop on a van and noticed
items that were described in the earlier burglary. The victim of the burglary
was able to positively identify the merchandise, resulting in the arrest of two
suspects. And a follow-up interview by Sgt. Todd Frazier helped to recover more
stolen items that had been taken from a neighboring home.
Another huge benefit for our new residents who are now receiving quality police
Hope you have a nice weekend.
Fellow Disneyland-lovers may recall the familiar baritone voice that has welcomed monorail passengers with the words “You are riding aboard the NEW MARK FIVE Monorail” for over 20 years now.
So, I am glad to see that the old “New Mark V” is finally going to be updated.
Now, if Seattle Center could only find a way to replace its even-older monorail trains…
This was the scene on NE 16th Street in Upper Kennydale this morning, as firefighters and animal control officers tried to figure out how to wrangle a black bear that had meandered it’s way around the neighborhood.

The speed cameras are going in near three schools this week.
Here is a shot of the camera being installed on Edmonds Ave NE, next to McKnight Middle school. We are also installing red-light cameras at three intersections.
The Renton Reporter published a story in today’s edition. Click HERE for the story.
When the cameras get activated, please be prepared for other drivers to act a little erratically. for a while. These cameras are great at eliminating T-Bone car crashes, and preventing kids from getting hit in school zones, but they can actually increase the number of rear-end fender-benders due to people driving unpredictably (hitting the break abruptly when they first thought they would run the light, or slowing down fast). So be careful until the speed-demons out there learn some new habits.
