LANA DEL REY Born to Die

JUVENILE Rejuvenation

January 31

January 17

Lana Del Rey is by far the most original pop artist in the business. With her sexy Nancy Sinatra voice and clear hip-hop influences, her music pulls from both the classics and the new age.

Made popular by his 1999 hit “Back that Ass Up,” Juvenile has long provided us with club-banging and car-blasting hits that make us get low at the drop of a hat. With more than eight studio albums in his repertoire, Juvenile has been on the scene long enough to know what the people want.

Match.com is one of the longest running online dating services and continues to be a popular choice for people looking to find that special someone to spend their life with. The application is free, but is really only useful if you have a paid profile to begin with, so anyone looking for a free ride must go elsewhere. Match.com offers an easy-to-use interface and is available for all Android devices, since Apple has currently removed the app from its App Store.

So if the idea of Match.com is to find a life partner who is compatible on all levels, Zoosk is the complete opposite. It offers more of a service for young individuals to send and receive flirtatious messages in order to find a special buddy in their area. Zoosk takes the structure of a traditional dating Web site, but makes it easy enough for most anyone and focuses on looks and attraction, while not trying to find your “perfect match.”

Available: Android, Android Tablet Get your freak on this New Year’s with the iKarmasutra Sex Positions app for Android. Featuring hundreds of positions, accompanied by visual images and instructional videos, couples can always find something new to experience. Currently there is an abundance of similar applications available on mobile devices, but due to the frequency of updates and sheer amount of content, iKarmasutra takes the cake for any app in the category.

Bringing social circles together one amazing dish at a time. www.thecoterieroom.com 2137 2nd Avenue Seattle 98121

Ernie Sapiro

Dana Tough and Brian McCracken, the brilliant minds behind Belltown’s Spur Gastropub and Capitol Hill’s Prohibition-era inspired cocktail bar Tavern Law, have done it again. The dynamic duo, with a growing list of accomplishments, has gained recognition as some of the nation's Top Five Chefs (by Gayot) as Rising Star Chefs and a nomination for The People’s Best New Chef awards by Food & Wine Magazine. They seem to have the Midas touch, turning all their ventures into gold, with their latest success being The Coterie Room. Inside the 1920s brick building on the corner of Second and Blanchard, The Coterie Room’s sparkling crystal chandelier twinkles over an elegant dining room where simplistic beauty serves as a backdrop to the chefs’ modernly elevated take on American classics with a French influence. Although using many of the forward-thinking cooking techniques utilized at Spur and Tavern Law, the resulting fare at The Coterie Room is equally as intriguing and also just as highly approachable. Weekend brunch includes crave-worthy dishes like the corned duck hash ($16). Those simply in the mood for drinks can take a seat at the bar to enjoy great cocktails such as the Trump Card ($11), a concoction of Martin Miller’s gin, Dolin Blanc Vermouth and Scrappy’s grapefruit and cardamom bitters, while admiring the interestingly pleasant wall of greenery nearby. For dinner, an option of small plates, entrée sizes and family style dishes allows something appropriate for every occasion whether enjoying solo or to share with each other. A glimpse at what’s on the menu: The baby lettuce salad ($8) was dressed just right with bright notes of citrus, chevre and sumac almonds. Their version of poutine ($12) brought together thick-cut fries with braised pork shoulder gravy, addicting fried Beecher’s cheese curds and fresh sprigs of parsley. Perfectly pan roasted striped bass (market price) was carefully placed on a bed of parsnip puree, surrounded by bacon vinaigrette and topped with roasted brussel sprouts. The Wagyu beef cap sirloin ($55) was like butter. Each bite melted ever so pleasingly in the mouth, making it impossible to consume without moans and groans of contentment and bliss. The flawless sirloin was prepared through a process that involved brining and being cooked sous vide, before being caramelized, seared, coated in demi-glace and nestled atop smooth ricotta whipped potatoes with braised endive and carrots and a balsamic vinegar reduction. The large family-style portion was too much to finish, but the thought of leaving any bit of something so beautifully prepared behind brought on such a wave of guilt that I couldn’t resist having it packed up for later. As though dinner itself was not enough of a treat, the apple galette ($9) wowed with warm, spiced apples in an ultra-flaky crust served with vanilla ice cream and caramel. The rich and lovely chocolate caramel tort ($9) was composed of steamed chocolate pudding cake and caramel custard covered in a decadent orange blossom ganache with candied hazelnuts. At The Coterie Room, the sophistication and warmth of the ambiance may romance you, the enthusiasm and kindness of the servers may charm you, but it’s the food. The food that will captivate you, make you fall in love and have you coming back for more. - JACKLYN TRAN

Nice Buns

For a food to qualify as a drinking snack, it must have a few characteristics in particular. Salt is a priority. No utensils should be required. Affordability is important. Availability is key. Lately, Asian-style buns have been filling these requirements all around town. One might go so far as to say they’re the new slider. Gua bao, soft buns filled with pork belly, are traditional Taiwanese food, but many Seattle chefs have taken liberties to make them their own. - KATE OPATZ

The King Lets face it. LOUIS XIII de RĂŠmy Martin has mystified cocktail connoisseurs for decades with it's imposing presence amongst the highest of top-shelves at fine bars and restaurants world wide. Knowledge is power and DList is here to help enlighten you on some of the things that make LOUIS XIII the "King of Cognacs."

The Decanter When it comes to bottles, all pale in comparison to LOUIS XIII. The 100% Baccarat Crystal hand blown decanter has become as iconic as its contents. With the 24k gold collar and individually made air-tight fleur-de-lis stopper, its easy to see why a bottle of LOUIS XIII fetches upwards of $2000.00.

Money can buy you happiness (in a bottle!) Most admirers usually save their LOUIS XIII indulgences for special occasions, but many bars now offer a tasting menu that can be as affordable as $55 (usually per 1/2 oz. pour.)

The Liquid The Price

LOUIS XIII is made from over 1200 eaux-de-vies (different grape varietals), all from Grande Champagne region of Cognac, France. They are aged in centrury-old casks made from Limousin oak. The palette of those who sip LOUIS XIII pick up multiple flavors after each taste. Floral notes, candied fruits and spices hit your tongue first followed by jasmine, ginger, nutmeg and passion fruit on the second go. The third taste will open up a final swirling of figs, prunes, honey and sandalwood.

The Sexton A new, yet familiar, addition to Ballard's bar scene.

Anne Cho

Walking into a place for the first time shouldn’t feel this comfortable. There is something about The Sexton that makes you feel like you are at your neighborhood bar. To many Ballardians, this IS their local bar. Even though some believe Ballard is becoming the “locals only” hangout, The Sexton is worth traveling to. There is heart and soul put into this project that honors Amber Sexton’s family making due through the dustbowl years. “People from the dustbowl era had to recreate everything,” co-owner Amber Sexton said. “That’s what we did inside.” The theme is comfort, home-style and friends, making use of everything.

DRINK

So many details and insinuations to the hand-crafted and scratch-made, it will take you numerous times to grasp every reference. Everything was created by hand. Hand cut, hand nailed. The thought and care put into a venue comes through in the final product and The Sexton did not cut any corners. The place already has so much character and it just opened. It feels like it’s been a staple on Ballard Ave for years. “If you come in angry, you will leave happy,” said co-owner and head chef Ryan Davidson. “That’s all I care about.” The menu consists of southern comfort home cooking while the bar is focused on whiskey-based cocktails. They also create their own infused vodka, tequila and house-made syrups and grenadine. The cocktail menu is a spinoff of the classics with a Sexton twist. “We love Ballard,” Davidson stated. “And we wanted to create something that Ballard didn’t have.” - EVAN CARTER

SEXTON JULEP - Sexton re-created this bourbon classic with the addition of their house made Apricot Brandy. It becomes that refreshing cocktail you are looking for after a hard dry days work in the dustbowl… or a rainy day in Ballard.

THE GIRLS OF THE GRIDIRON

What many thought as the next "fad" in football has produced some of the northwest's newest sports superstars. - SHEENA NGUYEN

Dana Jonas at Studio 3. Inc. Makeup by Jessica Nees, Teryl Hawk & Yessie Libby Hair by Kaycie Baker & Teryl Hawk As of date, two of Seattle’s football teams have a fighting chance at making the playoffs this year, but only one plays in a league that strives to blend action, impact and beauty. The Seattle Mist, a member of the Western Conference of the Lingerie Football League, is one of Seattle’s newest and most promising teams. With a current record of 1-2 and four games total for the entire season, the Mist is on the brink of continuing play into postseason. “Sometimes your record doesn’t reflect just how good you are,” defensive coordinator Jeremiah Captain stated. “We’re a very good team.”

The LFL should not be confused for a slightly amped-up form of powder puff football and skeptics can see for themselves with games televised on MTV2 showing the level these girls can compete at. “These girls are real tough,” Captain said. In fact many are actually ex-college athletes. “There aren’t a lot of professional women’s leagues out there after college so this is a chance for women to break through and do something different,” he added. It’s apparent there’s a certain level of sex appeal to the LFL as well, but it takes a little more than being easy on the eyes to make the team. According to

28 WWW.DLISTMAGAZINE.COM


PRODUCT DINE

Captain, during tryouts the coaches don’t just look at a girl’s appearance, but it’s a given that the girl has to be fit and look good in the uniform that does not happen to be terribly forgiving. “For me personally, I look more at athletic ability and whether or not the player can pick things up quickly,” he commented. With a solid group of girls this season, the team is steadily progressing and looking forward. “Our goal is to make playoffs this year and to win the championship since we still have a small chance at that,” Captain said. “We just want to be a real good team both on and off the field, carrying ourselves in a good manner,

supporting the community and also empowering these women. I want them to be known as football players and they should be respected for their craft. Yes, they are wearing lingerie to lure people in, but once people are in they’re hooked not because of the lingerie, but because of the quality of play.” The Seattle Mist’s next game will be on Jan. 6 and will determine their postseason fate.

DISCOVERED

Captain Midnite Get familiar with January's "Discovered" artist.

Chuck Larpenteur

Vocalist and producer Captain Midnite is an astute practitioner of reverse psychology. Though he compels the listener to “drown me out” on the single of the same name, the song’s epic doomsday urgency begs the opposite, creating an even greater attraction to the music. See how that works? Midnite is branching out as an electronic/dubstep solo act after years of making beats for rappers including Kyle Lucas of Vonnegutt, signed to Big Boi’s Purple Ribbon Records. That collaboration took him to Lollapalooza this past August. Read on to see where Captain Midnite’s going on his own and with others as the fourth Northwest artist to be Discovered. Know an act deserving? You know what to do: @DListMagazine #Discovered - JOE GUSTAV

Name: Captain Midnite Age: 23 From: Seattle, WA Sounds Like: Love. Positivity. Betrayal. Victory. Loss. Overcoming. My music is a combo of styles that I love: hip-hop, rock, electro, soul. I started out making hip-hop beats for artists around the Seattle area such as Grieves, SOL and my old group, The Let Go. For fun, I've also been releasing dubstep/electro tracks and remixes for free download before my EP drops. When I'm Not Making Music I'm: Living positive. Watching Coen Brothers and Chan-wook Park films. Laughing at comedians. Laughing at people who don't know they're comedians. Accidentally writing songs in my head. Enjoying Seattle because it's a beautiful area we live in.

34 WWW.DLISTMAGAZINE.COM

What's Next: Recording a brand new EP to be released early next year! This EP is an adventure into a realm and level I've never been. It's addicting. Also, Kyle Lucas and I are working on brand new material branching off our last EP, “The Sky Is Falling” and “I'm Fine.” Absolutely stoked with how these projects are sounding! Catch Me At: Facebook.com/CaptainMidniteMusic or tweet @CapnMidnite. All my projects are on iTunes, just search “Captain Midnite.” And I can't forget to mention that I have such an INTENSE new music video dropping for my song "Drown Me Out" very soon! Calling it INTENSE is an understatement.

DECIBEL DJ

Avicii

Our very first "Decibel DJ" feature shows that good music can feed the soul and the stomach.

provided by At Night Mgmt

#6 DJ in the world. Winner of Pete Tong’s Fast Trax. Props from the biggest names in electronic music. His own radio show on SiriusXM. A Grammy nomination for his song “Sunshine” with David Guetta. Yes, Swedish DJ prodigy Avicii has accomplished a lot at 22. But he’s looking to do a whole lot more -- namely, end hunger, starting with its termination in the United States. He is currently on the House For Hunger Tour, an idea started by his manager, Ash Pournouri, to increase awareness of a surprisingly widespread affliction in one of the world’s most prosperous countries. Pournouri and Avicii plan to donate $1 million in gig fees to Feeding America, with every dollar able to provide 8 meals to hungry Americans. DList chatted with Avicii while busy on tour. To see him for yourself at the historic Paramount and help him end hunger in the US; visit www.houseforhunger.org for more. - JOE GUSTAV

Congratulations on your Grammy nomination. It seems like for the first time, the Grammys are t r y i ng t o give due recognition to electronic music. What does this mean to the genre and to you as an artist?: The amount of EDM (Electronic Dance Music) Grammy nominees this year is definitely huge for the industry. It shows how much the scene has grown, even from when I started a couple years back. For me personally it’s a huge honor and one of those things that I never in my wildest dreams would have thought could happen when I first started playing around with synths on my computer 5 years ago. You’ll be coming to Seattle as part of the House for Hunger Tour, a tour with proceeds going to Feeding America. Why is this a cause near to your heart? Why do you want to help end hunger in the US and the world?: Well when I first found out how big the hunger problem in the US actually was I couldn’t really believe it at first. I’ve always pictured it as a third

world problem and when I heard that in a country where I’ve spent so much time in, 1 out of 6 people struggle with hunger, it really was a no-brainer that I wanted to help out when my manager Ash came to me with the idea for the tour! Is part of the reason for doing an EDM charity tour to combat some mainstream stereotypes toward the music (apathy, lack of a political/social conscience, drugs?): For me it’s not really about combating anything, even though I think EDM music has been getting a lot of unfair criticism and still is. I’m doing this for the cause and hopefully start something that will eventually involve more artists and companies within the EDM industry. Its also a way for me to give something back to a country that has given me so much. To hear what Avicii has planned for the new year, read our full interview at the DList blog.

Safe Design

Starting off slowly, working with anyone to get her name out, and with support from the Wing Luke Museum, Anne, along with her current teammates Jeremy Protacio and Carmel Laurino have built Rock.Paper.Sketch humbly to be a design boutique that takes branding and design a step further than most designers and agencies. With a combination of excellent usage of space, uplifting hues of color, and hints of fashionable inspiration, Rock. Paper.Sketch creates some of the most unique and memorable logos and designs for their clients. This is shown as their budgets have increased from $50 to now $15,000 just for creative and design purposes. Their intuitiveness and skills have brought them amazing clientele and projects over the past year-and-a-half ranging from local musicians, apparel lines in LA, T-Mobile, Tesla Motor Company, Pantone and recently doing designs on bronze inlays for public art that will grace the city of Seattle's sidewalks by spring time that will set the standards for the next 100 years. Rock.Paper.Sketch wants to be your ambassador to design your idea and we couldn't agree more that getting up close and personal with Rock.Paper.Sketch would be an experience that you'll never forget.

Use A Concept An intimate look at design firm Rock.Paper.Sketch.

Danielle Bortone-Holt The creative process for a graphic designer can be likened to a passionate night of great sex. There is passion, there is climax, and there is definitely a consequence for such an act of love. Weather it is immediate or 9 months, the birth of an amazingly designed piece becomes the manifest love child between the material and the spiritual. At Seattle based design boutique Rock.Paper.Sketch, this passion for design runs deep and is quite evident in all that they do. Creative director and founder Anne Milan Alo first started her career as a designer in Los Angeles fresh out of college. Inspired by the Jennifer Lopez movie, The Wedding Planner she established a wedding studio and blossomed with it for four successful years. Her next move was with Neiman Marcus designing award winning window displays on famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. This opened her to visual merchandising and she quickly found herself at Nordstrom. Once there, she quickly realized that putting together pre-designed window displays was not for her and in 10 months was promoted and made the move to Seattle to be on the more influential design side of Nordstrom. Anne brought her creative vision to No rdstrom for two-and-a-half years and soon realized a new beginning was on her horizon.

SALON - BOUTIQUE

Wild at Heart Satisfying your every desire.

Seven Salon

Seattle's iconic salon isn't just settling with it's domination of the northwest.

Michael Walmsley

SEVEN Salon is not the place to be pampered or to receive a haircut in the hopes of being a celebrity lookalike. The Seattle-bred business places more importance on the energy of the environment and providing customers with cuts and colors that best suit them. Upon entering the Seattle location, music spun by a live DJ welcomes potential clients into the salon’s atmosphere of vitality. A complimentary barista bar is also on hand. The lights over the cutting stations provide the feeling of “being on stage,” suggested Nathan Demarre, the salon’s marketing manager. Fittingly, the spotlight is placed on the client during consultations, not trends or celebrities. SEVEN’s consultations focus on what will suit the client’s distinctive facial structure and features best. “We prescribe haircuts,” asserted Demarre, also acknowledging consultations are mutual discussions. He additionally emphasized the value of originality at SEVEN. “We’re not trying to cre-

ate clones; we’re trying to create individuals.” SEVEN has provided a luxury salon experience since 2003. Education is of great importance, as training after beauty school and continuing education inform the styling staff. SEVEN will spread its expertise in light of the new year. A line of products, simply named 7, was launched five years ago. Now the company plans to take it national. With 25 products total, Demarre suggested it’s a more complete line than others on the market. Demarre also acknowledged how important it was for SEVEN to create a high quality product that left hair feeling light and natural. “It’s not about the product, it’s about the hair,” he said. The business philosophy of individuality remained intact with original product launch. “We didn’t want to just make money,” Demarre said. “We wanted to make a mark.” If the distinctive precision cuts leaving the salon are any indication, it will be no problem. - STEVEN DOLAN
