With big acts like funk/R&B legend Charles Bradley and Seattle indie rock folk hero Damien Jurado on the bill, it's hard to believe that this is only Timber! Outdoor Music Festival's second year. Though, to be fair, the lineup announced this morning -- which is just half of the acts that have been confirmed -- is technically their third.

Rooting for the Hawks is enough to make even the most hardcore Hawks fan work up a powerful appetite -- and Northwest companies are getting creative and cashing in on the region's collective hunger for gridiron glory (and food) by dishing out specialty, limited-time offers, ranging from blue-and-green chips to Skittles-laced sausage.

If you're ready to spring into Feast Mode this weekend, here's where:

In previous years, it might have been easy, though inaccurate, to lump Cataldo creator and frontman Eric Anderson into the broad category of "Seattle musicians with guitars who play music about feelings." But with Cataldo's forthcoming fourth album, "Gilded Oldies," Anderson breaks far from that archetype to create a record that is more mature, both in substance and style.
