Celebrate Pilgrim Coffeehouse's Grand Opening!

Grand opening sign

Today was the first day in over a year that I walked into a business without a mask. It was a surreal and joyful experience. Life feels, finally, to be on the verge of ordinary.

I entered Pilgrim Coffeehouse, which is celebrating its grand opening over the next few days. The coffeehouse is in Oak Tree Village, at the exact location that one of Starbuck's original North Seattle locations closed almost three years ago.

Even before its official Grand Opening, the coffeehouse has brought new life to the plaza, the freshly roasted coffee bringing me in almost every single day. This coffeehouse near the beautifully re-imagined Aurora Ave N Pedestrian bridge is in a way itself acting as Licton Spring's bridge to a post-pandemic world.

If you haven't been to Pilgrim Coffeehouse, or are just looking for something to do, or want to celebrate the return to some level of normalcy, now is a great time to go! Over the next few days, there will be some fun activities, give-aways, and food vendors. And, as always, a great cup of locally roasted coffee.

Check Out the New Art in Licton Springs!

Next time you're walking around the neighborhood, take a stroll down 92nd and 100th between Fremont and Wallingford to see all sorts of art exhibits!

We had a chance to check out, "One Time, One Meeting: A Community Shrine” by Erin Shigaki. The wooden placards bear words of hope and contemplation by and for the community during the global pandemic.

No 2020 Licton Springs Halloween Event This Year

We heard from the Licton Springs Community Council that the 2020 Licton Springs Halloween Trick ‘o Treat event is canceled due to Covid-19. The council discussed possible ways to try to navigate the safety issues, but given restrictions set by both King County and the city, they found there was no safe way to hold the event.

They hope to be back next year bigger and better than ever.

Stay safe!
