A few quick Ballard stories from our inbox and around the web…
DEADLIEST CATCH: The word in the My Ballard Facebook Group is the Deadliest Catch folks are filming today (Wednesday) inside The Market Arms, which has been closed for the event the last few days. “They are filming ‘The Bait’ to celebrate Deadliest Catch’s 200th episode,” Erin said. A new season of Deadliest Catch kicks off on April 10th.
TRAILBEND TAPROOM: We first reported on Trailbend Taproom back in January. Now after a few weeks of soft-launching (and working with the city to get the last permits lined up), the restaurant and its 42 taps are now officially open at 1118 NW 50th St.
SEATTLE BISCUIT COMPANY: Back in February, we told you about Seattle Biscuit Company’s plans to open a restaurant without wheels in Frelard. Now the restaurant is open for business, and it landed some airtime in KING 5’s Evening Magazine.
LARSEN’S BAKERY: We missed this great profile of Larsen’s Bakery in the Seattle Times a couple weeks ago: “Larsen’s Danish Bakery is still going after almost half a century.” Quick factoid: Larsen’s makes 80,000 kringle every year.
O’BRIEN VISIT: Last weekend the mayor dropped by Ballard for a community meeting, and now Seattle City Councilmember Mike O’Brien is on the agenda at the upcoming Ballard District Council meeting on April 11th, 7 p.m. at Merrill Gardens (5601 24th Ave NW). Details here.
NW PEAKS – The NW Peaks brewery in Ballard is reopening tomorrow afternoon (Thursday) with a newly refurbished patio and porch.
