Green Lake Neighbors Concerned About Local Church’s Homeless Outreach

By Joel Moreno Perceptions that a church group planned to open another homeless shelter brought out riled neighbors in Green Lake on Tuesday night. As clergy members with Mosaic Community Church clarified their plans during a community meeting, residents who attended only seemed to have more questions.

What’s That Delicious Smell? Bongos Café

By Ryan Murray There’s an oasis in North Seattle, and it used to be a gas station. Now, it’s a faux-seaside resort complete with margaritas and a sandy beach, removing you nearly entirely from busy Aurora Avenue North just over the walls. Bongos Café serves up Caribbean sandwiches that are among the best in the city.

Latona Pub Celebrates 30 Years

By Tan Vinh Bars come and go; few make it to 30 years like Latona Pub. Through all the drinking trends and gastropubs, Latona Pub hasn’t so much adapted to the changing times as it has remained true to its calling: Microbrew is its thing.

Is a Public-Private Partnership Appropriate to Renovate the Green Lake Community Center?
