Email us at if your costume's not on the list.

Jeff wrote in to suggest Leif Bearickson (is that a naked Viking?) and the Discovery Park Cougar. We're not technically old enough to be considered a Cougar, but we like ho

Holy Sheet, It's Almost Halloween!

Ballardites - where are you going to party on Halloween? We want to know! Mostly because we haven't been invited to any good parties. Actually we haven't been invited to any at all and haven't heard of any huge events happening in our hood.

Let us know what are you dressing up as this Saturday and tell us where you're going. We're trying to decide if we're just old and lame or if Ballard is wimping out on this spectacular dress up holiday.

Encanto in Ballard

We were intrigued to see that the lovely Encanto Barcelona is opening up shop in Ballard. We adore their store on First Avenue downtown! This weekend we were able to take a sneak peak in the store to see what they're setting up. It looks great people.

The shop owner said they'll be opening in a few weeks. And he mentioned a discount code but we're not giving it up! Go talk to him to get it. The new store is on Old Ballard Ave where Kavu was located. (Kavu moved next door.)

Ballard Barkeep Stabbed

The Seattle Times is reporting that the manager of a bar on the 2200 block of Market Street was stabbed after he and a patron got into an argument last night. Shocking! The manager was treated and released from Harborview.

What bar is it? Anyone know? I'm thinking it's either Lombardi's or Matador. We'll have to chalk up another stabby bar - you know, like Goofy's and Golden City. If it was Matador, we were there hours before. Freaky. I thought the manager was a woman as well. That sucks.
