By Adam H. Callaghan Despite a five-day notice to pay rent or vacate the premises — dated October 2 but still hanging on the door of Little Big Burger’s Green Lake location — director of operations Adrian Oca told Eater not to worry: The Portland-born burger chain has settled its affairs and the notice should have been taken down by now.

Rowing Season Ends One Day Early at the Frostbite Regatta at Green Lake

By Sarah Low The fall rowing season, which is typically wrapped up at the University of Washington’s Head of the Lake regatta each November, ended one day early for the Vashon Island Rowing Club (and many others) this year as the annual event had to be canceled due to high winds and sleet.

Seattle Sues Skate Shop for Illegal Skatepark on Green Lake’s Duck Island

The project was a submission for a DIY challenge by Nike SB and TransWorld SKATEboarding, which charged fans to…

Green Lake’s Spud Fish & Chips to Close

We’re sad to say that Spud Fish & Chips at Green Lake will be closing in the near future to make way for development of a mixed-use residential and retail building on its current site. Luckily, the owners plan to lease space in the new building once completed, to bring Spud right back, but we’re probably looking at a couple of years without Spud Fish & Chips in the neighborhood.
