Friday Memo: Sloppy Bowl … Rumble-free ride … Cafe Juanita still top-notch

Good news? It was just a practice game: The Seahawks lost 21-16 to the Denver Broncos on Thursday night, but rather than a Super Bowl re-match, it was more of a Sloppy Bowl. “There are some guys on the second team that have been here three or four days,” coach Pete Carroll said. “We are not very sharp right now, and it all showed.’’

Riding without the rumble: Is a Harley a Harley if you can’t hear the rumble? The new electric motorcycle from Harley-Davidson sounds more like a jet engine than the classic street hog, according to columnist Brier Dudley. You can still check out the “Project LiveWire” bikes this weekend at the Eastside Harley-Davidson dealership.

Speaking of the Eastside: If you go check out the new Harley, stop at Cafe Juanita in Kirkland. Chef Holly Smith has owned the Northern Italian restaurant since 2000, and it remains 3.5-star worthy. Don’t miss the goat-cheese gnocchi.

Do you walk to work? We want to hear about it, especially if you’re an epic walker who marches miles back and forth to the office each day. Click here. Your comments might get used in a future story.

Get the AC going: We had a few days in the 70s, but Friday looks like it will be the last one for a while, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Temps are expected to climb back into the 80s with clear skies this weekend.
