See You Later Ballard!

In case you noticed, we haven't published much lately. It's because Ballard Gossip Girl left Ballard. In fact, she moved out of the state. While her heart is still firmly rooted in Ballard, her pocketbook and career took her away. We attempted to get some of the other contributors to step up but that didn't work. So we ditched our domain, packed our bags and closed up shop in the middle of the night.  We'll miss you dearly and thank you all for reading our silly little blog. We hope it entertained you, because we certainly thought it was a kick in the pants.  Skål!

Has Anyone Stayed at the Hotel Ballard?

This Ballard Gossip Girl has a friend coming into town in September and is looking for a room. I know the restored Hotel Ballard is now open but has anyone stayed there yet?

I would love to hear your comments or recommendations. I am so excited that we have a hotel in our hometown now.

Have a great weekend readers!

Syttende Mai 2011

Our favorite day at BGG is almost here. We are in the final countdown to Syttende Mai and we hope to see you out on the streets of Ballard tomorrow.

The committee this year has events lined up all day long! The parade starts at 6 so there is plenty of time for you to get off work (leave early, we will be) get to Ballard and grab your first shot of aquavit.

Hip Hip Hurrah!

Harlow's Is Open For Business

It's open folks!  Come and get it.

Harlow's opened late last week and is ready to meet your drinking needs.  We dropped in (twice in fact) and love it.  Congratulations to Kevin and Tracy.  It's on the corner of Ballard Ave and 20th Ave NW.  Go get some tots and some beer!

Dude. Art.

Blowing Sands Glass Studio is showing some fantastic sculpture by Dan Klennert.  You can see a number of his works outside the studio like this one above.   We think they appeal to the mechanic in all of us, not only inspiring us to see the animal and human forms but to identify the individual parts.  Well done, dudes!

The studio is located on 14th Ave NW and NW 58th St a little north of Ballard Market near St. Alphonsus.  Go check it out art fans!

This Horse is Awesome.
