    Under new ownership, Cure a happy Capitol Hill story of exit - and entrance - across from Cal Anderson
    With success in Capitol Hill food and drink more and more dictated by the muscle and scale that comes with owning multiple locations, there aren't a lot of happy exit stories for owners of simpler ventures dedicated to simply giving the neighbors a nice place to hang out, eat, and drink.

CHS Pics | A Melrose Market feast

OK, so it was probably a lot less charming — but certainly less gory — that the prized birds were encased in cardboard boxes. There were no scenes of Scrooge having a boy pull a giant turkey through snowy London. But the preparations for a feast were in full swing Sunday at Melrose Market along with a jazz quartet, wine tasting, and plenty of trimmings for sale.

Capitol Hill Pets | Jeremy and Doctor on Broadway

Jeremy, a huge Dr. Who (David Tennant version) fan, was hanging out near Seattle Central with his pup Doctor when we stopped by to say hello. “He loves to run, play, and get into mischief. We are *his* companions. People think he’s a miniature Rottweiler, but you can’t do that,” Jeremy tells us. Doctor is a four-year-old Carlin Pinscher, which is a mix between a pug and a mini-Pinscher. “Our previous dog was a German Rottweiler, and after he passed away we had to downsize for the city,” Jeremy said. “The German Rott was a lot nicer, Doctor’s nice too, but he’s a little putz sometimes.”
