Monday Briefs: Ballard power outage, Magnolia Bridge repairs, Ballard District Council meeting, and Fair Isle Brewing news

POWER OUTAGE IN CENTRAL BALLARD A short power outage last night affected parts of Central Ballard near NW 62nd St and 20th Ave NW. Scott Thomsen from Seattle City Light says it could have been a falling branch hitting a power line, causing it to short out. Power was restored shortly thereafter.

MAGNOLIA BRIDGE REPAIRS Crews will be out this week working on the expansion joints on the Magnolia Bridge. They plan to work in three places on the western side of the bridge, near Smith Cove Park. Expect to see crews working from Sept. 10 – 13, from 8:30am to 2:30pm daily.

BALLARD COMMUNITY CENTER CLOSED ON SEPT. 13 All Seattle Parks and Recreation community centers, pools and teen life centers will be closed on Sept. 13 for a staff training. That includes the Ballard and Loyal Heights Community Centers. Preschool and School Aged Care will still be operating, however.

BALLARD DISTRICT COUNCIL MEETING SEPT. 13 The Ballard District Council will meet on Wednesday, Sept. 13. On the agenda is a presentation from LEAD (Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion program), which is expanding to Seattle’s North Precinct. There will be a focus on public safety and homelessness outreach, with guest speakers from Ballard Alliance and LEAD who will describe new programs happening in Ballard. The meeting is at 7pm at the Sunset Hill Community Club (3003 NW 66th Street). The meeting is open to the public.

FAIR ISLE BREWING TO HOST POP-UP KITCHENS The newest brewery coming to Ballard, Fair Isle Brewing, has announced that they plan to host regular pop-up kitchens, featuring local chefs. “Once a month, we plan to invite a local chef to prepare a menu of their choice for just one night at our taproom,” the owners write in a blog update. The dinners could range from an intimate tasting menu for 20 guests to a single dish prepared for 100. And of course, the brewery will offer beer pairings to complement the menu. Fair Isle is set to open in Ballard in 2019.

Fair Isle probably wants to “complement” the menu rather than “compliment” it.

We need a special tax assessment on the property owners of Magnolia to replace the Magnolia bridge since they will benefit most from a new bridge. They can afford it, most of them are millionaires.

That’s pretty big talk from a brewery that hasn’t yet released a beer or announced their future location. I’m fully prepared to enjoy their beers, but their approach to hype is taking a big chunk out of my excitement.
