For those of you planning to be the first in line to try out the new Linda Derschang-Volunteer Park Cafe joint venture Oddfellows, I have a date and time for you.
Friday, December 19th.
That’s the word. Here is what to expect from the partnership of the powerhouse behind Linda’s and Smith and Ericka Burke, part of the VPC “Always Fresh Goodness” duo. From the very wonderful blog of Seattle artist Joe Veltkamp (who somehow got the scoop [yeah, Seattlest, you too] on their opening date! but i got the time!):
I asked Linda what the most appreciable difference between this and her/Erica’s [sic] other establishments. She said, “Oddfellows opens really early which we certainly aren’t used to in my company! It is definitely a café + bar rather than a pub like Smith, King’s and Linda’s”.
Joey also says the joint is planning for 7a openings, early birds. Oddfellows will be located at 1525 10th Ave, between Pine and Pike.
