The Counter has closed

Posted by Meghan Walker on March 16th, 2012

This week, Ballard burger joint The Counter shut its doors for good. The Counter, near the Ballard Bridge at 4609 14th Ave NW, opened  in 2009.

With failed attempts at reaching the restaurant owners, the reason for its closing is still unknown. We’ll update with any new information.

    I have come to understand that costs for internet degree pros tend to be an incredible value. For instance a full Bachelor’s Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration with a complete school feature of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560. Online learning has made taking your certification far more easy because you can easily earn your current degree from the comfort in your home and when you finish from work. Thanks for other tips I’ve learned through your website.

    Boa noite amigos, com certeza mandar um SMS grátis está cada vez mais trabalhoso devido falta de opções das operadoras de telefone. Há ainda os websites que prometem entregar meu SMS mas nem sempre chegam recepiente final. Alguns como o Mundo oi e o Oi Torpedo funcionam mas e para as outras operadoras? E os que dizem que enviam e nada chega. Para onde está indo as meus SMS? E para a Tim, Vivo? Alguma Idéia? Ou significa ter de comprar?. É só um desabafo, realmente está difícil achar serviços para mandar SMS barato.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Based on my research lotopyeer, after a in foreclosure process home is bought at an auction, it is common with the borrower in order to still have the remaining balance on the bank loan. There are many creditors who try and have all costs and liens paid off by the following buyer. Nevertheless, depending on specified programs, rules, and state laws there may be some loans that aren’t easily resolved through the transfer of loans. Therefore, the responsibility still lies on the borrower that has received his or her property in foreclosure. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this web site.
