Plus: Beth's Cafe closes again...this time with no reopening in sight.
By Grace Madigan
Welcome back to your regularly scheduled Evergrey programming.
Before we get to the news of the day, I wanted to make sure you saw that we have a very exciting contest going on with the small business champion — the Intentionalist.
To enter the Heart of Seattle photo contest, all you need to do is submit a photo taken at Downtown, Belltown, or South Lake Union business. Photos can be entered into one of three categories depending on the subject of the pic: people (centers customers, staff, or anyone else at the business), place (centers the space the business is in, interior or exterior), and things (centers a business’ product like a dish or ingredient). Submit as many photos as you’d like in each category; from there, we will pick the top finalists and have the public vote on a winner in each group. We will also pick a fourth winner whose shot also has the best story.
The prize? A pack of gift certificates to local businesses worth $400. The reward, in our humble opinion, is definitely worth the small effort of submitting a photo.
You have until Sunday, September 19 to enter. Just post your photo on Instagram, tag us via @the_evergrey and @intentionalist_, and include the hashtag #WelcomeBackSeattle.
Have any questions? Concerns? Ask ‘em by hitting reply to this email. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
Now, on to the headlines...
