Lake City’s First Annual Pub Crawl
Thank you so much to all the people that came out to support North Helpline and take part in a really fun evening. A huge thank you to Nikki with NHL for inviting us to partner on this event and to Hellbent, Elliott Bay, Beer Authority and Korochka for hosting. Games, prizes, drink specials, t-shirts and great conversation made for a really special Lake City experience. We look forward to more opportunities to partner with North Helpline in the coming months and, as always, with our wonderful local businesses.
Brent Norton, owner of Elloptt Bay Brewing was on hand to greet the crowd of about 60. Lake City’s own Mark Mendez took the opportunity to talk to the crowd and thank Brent for the mural project completed on the north wall of EBB by the Lake City Youth Leaders. Mark announced that artist Andrew Miller, who volunteered his time to work with the youth on the project, is the recipient of a Denny Award (Denny Award) from the Seattle Parks Department specific to his work and dedication on the project. Hellbent was a great starting point for the evening to get the low down on the games, pass out SWAG and start meeting new people. Burc, at the Beer Authority , as always was a supreme host with a most generous first round. Finishing off at Korochka Tavern was awesome. With most everyone who started the journey still in tow the place was packed. Piroshki and Dumplings, a perfect way to end the evening. While there were many Lake City residents taking part who were excited about something like this happening in the neighborhood there were even people from out of town who just enjoy a good pub crawl. First timers to Lake City! We even ended up bringing a private birthday party along with us halfway through the evening. 2nd Annual next year for sure!
