At Pagliacci each pizza is hand-tossed. As you might imagine, one of the most heralded skills in our ranks is the ability to spin the dough into perfect circles of even thickness. Getting it just right requires serious skill. Getting it just right each time on a busy Friday night requires seriously wicked skill. And no one does it better than Luis-Bibiano-Lopez. [...]

The Fountains of George Tsutakawa

Hidden amongst Seattle's many public fountains are several treasures by a Seattle artist named George Tsutakawa, who gained international renown for his sculptural fountains.
