“World Of Tastes in Lake City” Returns

Pick Up Your “Passport” Starting June 8th And Start Enjoying Lake City

This program to support local establishments will run until September 22nd 2017. Passports with enough stamps to qualify for a prize should be returned to the Kaffeeklatsch by close of business on September 22nd.

Simply make a purchase at any of the participating establishments, present your passport and receive a stamp. Don’t forget to thank the business for taking part.

Passports will be available at the Kaffeeklatsch as well as other of the participating businesses. You can always pick one up at the Lake City Farmers Market and they will be made available at various public events throughout the program.

Please take part in this program to support some of our most treasured Lake City Businesses. You can partner with friends, family and neighbors to qualify for the drawing on whatever level is comfortable. We are hopeful that this  program helps to  demonstrate our community’s ability to support our local small businesses.

We are hopeful that you find a new favorite spot and have fun visiting the ones you already have come to love. These businesses provide Lake City with its “flavor” and it is up to us as a community to help keep them here.

We have three levels of prizes indicated on the passport so that more people can take part in the fun. Winners will be chosen at random and one winner from each of the three tiers of prizes will be awarded. Winners will be contacted via the contact information on the passport within 30 days of the closing of the program.

The First 20 participants to turn in a passport with 7 or more stamps will automatically receive a $10 Gift Card to the Farmers Market

A big thank you goes out to all the businesses taking part as well as our sponsoring businesses – Two Dog Yoga, Kaffeeklatsch, Manila Manila, Elliott Bay Brewery and the Lake City Farmers Market.

LCFF Director, Chris Leverson with Winner Candis Carlson
Congratulations to Matt and Candis Carlson for being the 1st Place Winners of our 2016 “World of Tastes in the Heart of Lake City” business promotion program.
Our third year of this program saw a bit of a re-design with the addition of more locations and three tiers of prizes to encourage more participation.
When I asked Matt how the process was for him, he said “I was surprised at how many great places that there are in Lake City. We really enjoyed the Beer Authority. It was actually our first stop. They had a fantastic drink selection and the owner was very helpful. I also like that they start and end their day on 12’s because of their love for the Hawks.”

As part of the City’s “Park(ing) Day” event this year LCFF teamed up with Annette and the Kaffeeklatsch to create a pop up park that was all about bee conservation and the importance of bee health to our world. Many thanks to Peter with Rainy Day Bees who had honey tasting and a live hive on display. Also a big thank you to Christine Ranegger, a local bee hobbyist who brought her observation hive on Saturday and to Laura Matter from Seattle Tilth (http://www.seattletilth.org/) who came out to discuss bee friendly gardening and give away free seed packets.Thanks to our wonderful Children’s librarian, Nancy Pew, for stocking our bee park with a ton of great books on bees for kids. Environment Washington was also on hand Friday with their initiative “No Bees No Food” answering questions and pulling people in for the cause. parking-day-1
