Dear Lord, so true! What I love about Fred Meyer is no matter how busy it is, I don't have to wait in line too long. No matter how SLOW it is at Safeway (and it's always slow), I have to wait forever!
I got married last summer and had four months to plan it. Insisted on making my own cake, which turned out great--if there are any home baker brides or grooms to be who'd like to give it a try, The Cake Bible is an excellent resource. I also recommend The Party Place for rentals. They didn't even MENTION crap like chair covers, and they were totally reliable.
I can also highly recommend Catering at Its Best--not only were they friendly and reasonably priced, and did a walkthrough with us and helped us choose what rentals we wanted (with no BS), but the food was awesome and I did not have to manage them or do anything during the wedding--they handled it all. And they made us a gift basket of goodies and wine to have AFTER the ceremony, when we were exhausted and hungry. :)
I loved Pix and I liked this place, but found the service wanting. It was a slow night. The server would only take our drink order. When we asked about the tapas, she told us she didn't know much about them and that we should go to the counter and talk to the person there, which we did. The food was great, but I wish they had menus at the tables with the items and prices, for both the tapas and the desserts.
Under The Big Egg: "How else could they generate an hour-long wait at their cart on a weekend morning?" The title of the article says no waiting! No fair!

Ate there with friends a couple of weeks ago, and it was fantastic! I highly recommend the Breakfast Board (pictured above) and the amazing French toast. Even better, with the five of us ordering coffee and six dishes (plus a couple of tasty chocolate-potato doughnuts), the bill came to about $55 total, and we were STUFFED.
