Food Events Around Town

ON THE PLATE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE The good people at Pesos have some advice for you: In case of hangover, wake up to cheddar and chive biscuits with jalapeño sausage gravy. They're unveiling their Hangover Breakfast, which may go down like a lead sock but can purportedly cure what ails you. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings only! 605 Queen Anne Ave. N., 206-283-9353. LOWER QUEEN ANNE THROUGH THE SUMMER Beer at breakfast, omelets from Oaxaca, and something called "square dancin' squid."
