Ballard. Thinking about Seattle as a whole it seems like Ballard is a neighborhood. But when you really start considering Ballard, there are actually lots of little neighborhoods, and what I think of as 4 main sections.

Beer and Seattle: two things that go together like, well, rain and Seattle. It started back in the mid-nineteenth century (1854) when a two-year-old Seattle was graced with its first brewery, Washington Brewery, to slake the thirst of the local population of loggers. Over the next 50 years or so, many of what we would […]
Green Lake has a special place called Tangletown that’s full of great places to eat, drink, and enjoy with your friends. Eva Restaurant may not be as famous as some Seattle spots but have dinner here and you’ll see a lot of dedicated neighborhood residents that return again and again for a very special experience […]
