6th Ave Facts…and Rumors?

6 Feb

FACT: The damned parking strip work next to us on Junette is FINALLY finishing up, and open to park. I didn’t say FINISHED, but at least we can use the space now. What bums me is it took 2 months to do 2 of the 3 strips, but 2 weeks to do the third. WTF? The impact made on us by that was big, but I cannot even fathom how the shitstorm construction on St. Helens is impacting PSP, The Mix, and that whole crew of businesses. I wish the city would think-out of how projects impact small businesses, and come up with some temporary solutions with them (notice WITH, and not FOR…) while they are undergoing nearby road construction. They can fund it with the insane B&O taxes they collect. Some of these projects, in the end, will only help the businesses, but the NOW part is the bitch. Gripe over. Go eat some PSP and drink it up at The Mix while they are dealing with that project.

RUMOR: Satellite Coffee to open in MASA? Hrmmm?

FACT: Doug Teide, Head brewer at Engine House #9, has left to be a sales rep with Click Distributing. Assistant Brewer, and guy who cleans my taps, Shane, now takes the helm. Yes, they hired a new assistant brewer, and he makes killer beer. Let’s see what happens.

RUMOR: 6th Ave Farmer’s Market starts in June this year, making for a longer market. Sweeeeet.

FACT: Seven Seas Brewing, new upstart brewer in Gig Harbor, set to start distributing their beer by NOW, has suffered a bummer of a deal. Fire in the building next to them scorched their new digs, forcing them to move…and worse…start all over. Look for their beer, and big ol’ fat release Par-Tay at The Red Hot, in about 6 months or so.

RUMOR: The Red Hot is coming up on serving their 200th flavor of beer from their taps. Just kidding, it’s FACT. We have a grip of cool beer-related shenanigans coming up soon. I can’t wait…

    Wasn’t that parking supposed to be angle-in, too? Went by on Monday and it looked suspiciously parallel.

    Yeah, I’m hoping they’re waiting on doing the striping.

    I say, lets park at an angle in the meantime and force the issue 😉

    Also, I heard the Masa-Satellite thing directly from Pat Brown after running into Jeff Paradise (Masa GM) at Satellite the other morning.
