As a first timer at an ARSC-fest and someone who always loves to chow 
down when I travel (well, even when I'm home), count me in. My 
experience with Asian food in Vancouver at last year's MLA conference 
was incredibly good, so I'm sure Seattle must at least come close in 
that area. Wonder if they have any Malaysian; that was my discovery 
there, though I guess Chinese does really lend itself to this sort of 

Just wonder if there are any other chile-heads in this group (wandering 
ever further off ARSC topic) that will be willing to heat things up the 
way I like it,
