Friday Memo: Seahawks domination … Boutique coffee … Get your Fair on

FriWeather05Go Hawks: It was the Percy Harvin and Marshawn Lynch show Thursday night as the Seahawks rolled the Green Bay Packers in a 36-16 victory in the NFL season opener at CenturyLink Field. As Harvin himself gushed, “We have so many weapons, man.” We’ve got so many stories about the game, you can bask in the glow for hours. Go to the Sports page or check out the special Seahawks section in the print paper. We’ll be doing one after every game. Soundgarden and Pharrell Williams kicked off the celebration with a pre-game concert.

Looks like we need a fancier cup: Starbucks is trying out new store formats including “express stores” and coffee boutiques for the highbrow Reserve brand.  A Capitol Hill roastery, opening in December, will showcase Starbucks’ priciest beans, which often sell out quickly online and are in about 800 stores worldwide.

Fair time! Get your yearly dose of  baby pigs, carnival rides and elephant ears at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. If you like country music, this year’s fair lineup will knock your socks off: Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Jennifer Nettles and Florida Georgia Line. Clay Walker gets the party started tonight.

Summer reprieve: Sunny skies and highs in the mid-80s are expected this weekend in the Seattle area, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Perfect weather for a trip to the fair.
