The Blue Glass adds weekend brunch

The Blue Glass, which opened last month at 704 NW 65th St will now offer weekend brunch.

“We have our first 6 weeks open, have our chops down, or pork shanks as it were and have been warmly welcomed by the neighborhood,” owner Dan Cowan writes. Starting on Saturday, the new bar and restaurant (which is 21+) will open at 10 a.m. serving brunch favorites like Eggs Benedict with some flavorful twists, Huevos Rancheros and french toast.

Our news partners, The Seattle Times, recently published this article on the stretch of NW 65th St between 3rd Ave NW and 8th Ave NW, which is becoming quite the retail hub.

Wait a sec. They’re 21+ throughout, even for breakfast? Am I reading that right? Couldn’t be arsed to put a token barrier between the bar and the tables?

Too bad for new-parent me. For their sake, I hope they can fill those tables. Kid-free dining is a nice experience that I don’t begrudge anybody, but folks with kids are a huge part of the breakfast crowd.

Yay no obnoxious kids! Obnoxious kids are the main reason I don’t go to the hi-life for brunch (besides the eggshells in my food).

I’m glad Blue Glass realized that childless adults are the majority of the brunch crowd, as we can actually afford to eat out regularly (not have brood and all).

I’ll have to check out their brunch!

Actually, I think the Hi-Life works things out pretty well. Kids aren’t allowed in the bar area, and there’s a lot of seating over there. I’ve eaten there many times, pre-kid, and not had to deal with a single shriek or running brat. Now I’m on the other side….

The non-bar area is a kid zoo until about 10AM, I’ll grant you that. But after that it’s mostly a kid-free crowd. That’s about when the kidless roll out of bed, anyway, isn’t it? :)

Yada yada yada. Do they accept dogs? There are more of ’em in Seattle than there are kids. Hey, somebody has to cater to all the yupsters. Must be nice to be able to afford to go out/eat out often. Same people who feel under-taxed I guess.

It is nice to be able to afford to eat out–though college was hard work. How’s not going to college working out for you?

Don’t blame the kids for ruining your dining experience. Blame the parent who sits with a vacant stare, absorbed in their conversation, without concern for the way their child uses the restaurant as their personal play area.

Another parent chiming in to say they just lost about $50 a week from me.

Gurple, Salmon Bay Cafe is great for kids. It’s busy enough that they aren’t noticed, the portions are so huge (and the food is great) that you don’t need to get them their own plate and they have cheap ice cold Rainers for dad. I like two beers with my Sunday brunch.

Hi-Life sucks, imo. Overpriced and crap food.

I’ll have to check them out — haven’t made the trek down there yet.

Portage Bay is another good one. You have to get there before about 9AM or wait for a table. Before 9 it’s all kids, everywhere.

Ric, since this restaurant just started offering brunch, then it’s not likely that you were spending $50 week on brunch there. If your $50 wasn’t part of their revenue, then how could your continued lack of business be considered a “loss?”

“how could your continued lack of business be considered a “loss?” ”

Umm, because it’s $50 a week that I generally spend on brunch and it won’t be spent there. If kids were allowed, they’s be getting about $2600 a year from me. And probably from at least two dozen other families.

That’s a potential $62,400 they’re missing out on by not creating the simple partition gurple mentions. That’s a poor business decision.

But hey, what do I care? It’s their money to not make.

My best guess is that this is a liquor license related restriction. But buy all means let’s continue to flame this bar because the unlucky brood that scurried out from between Ric’s legs won’t get their virgin mimosas (orange juice) and eggs.

Maybe you should have thought about these restrictions before you forgot the condom, and if you weren’t prepared for them then you could have visited any planned parenthood and flushed your problem right out.

But by all means, since you’ve doomed our planet by contributing to the overpopulation problem, the rest of us should cater to your every whim and reform the laws so that you are benefited and never inconvenienced.

Yikes, robotspider, are you serious? Gurple didn’t deserve that.

Oops, didn’t read carefully. But Ric didn’t deserve it, either.

It is false that the restaurant is “losing” your business, since you never took your business there in the first place. That was my point. Furthermore, since you never went there in the first place, it makes your assertion that you would have gone every single week dubious. Finally, you claim to be happy at Salmonella Bay Cafe and not looking for a brunch place, anyway, so you’re entire argument seems petty.

I’ll do it right in front of your children. Though I imagine the sight of it would scar them less than your parenting.

Are you daft? Business isn’t static. They are in fact losing business by not gaining new business. Trying to bog down your opposition in semantics won’t make you right. It maks your stubborn and ignorant

And now you’ve libeled Salmon Bay. I’m emailing them this link. Hopefully they’ll subponea your ISP from the Swedes and you’ll be spending thousands defending your comment. Go Google “libel suits message board” and get back to us Buddy.

Robot is an angry 40 something dude, alone, broke, hated by women, and yelling at folks on the internet.

Seriously, no one will miss you. Do it.

You can email them this link, too…

Fact: The restaurant has been graded “unsatisfactory” by Seattle & King County Public Health inspectors every year for the past 5 years.

Is this the lesson you want to teach your children? I want you to read this thread to them (as with your parenting I doubt they can read). They can see how their mother spends her time telling other people on the internet to violently end their lives.

Wow. Now you’ve evolved to straight up lies.

Salmon Bay got a satisfactory reveiew as of June. Hi-Life, meanwhile, has had unsatisfactory results since 1998. That’s THIRTEEN YEARS of germy nastiness.Enjoy that funky omelette. Gross.

You gotta wonder whether Buddy and Spider have a financial interest in Blue Glass. If they do, they’re killing the place right now.

And why are the Swedes requiring mod approval of posts now? Becauae they allow false and defamatory reviews of local busineses?

What. The .Fuck?!

BTW Swedes- we can proxy hop and MAC spoof all night. You want me to email the Salmon Bay Cafe your name and address with a log of the libelous inof you’ve allowed? You allowed bogus health reports to be published while suppressing genuine King County records.

I know I wouldn’t sleep well knowing I tried to destroy a man’s business with lies.

I don’t have anything invested in this restaurant.

It’s not defamation if it’s true.

I don’t care enough about this argument anymore to continue it.

Have a great day!
