Here’s the latest from the bars and restaurants of Capitol Hill. Have a tip? Drop it in the can at email@example.com
The partners behind Capitol Hill’s shuttered Huiyona restaurant will launch a new venture — in the same 10th Ave East location — whenPau Hana opens for business Tuesday night. The news comes in via a comment on our post first noting that the Huiyona space was about to be reactivated:
Tomorrow at 4PM (11/16) you can have a taste of Hawaii. Pau Hana is open for dinner. The choices are mouthwatering. Mahalo
We haven’t learned much about what went on behind the scenes as the Huiyona concept was folded but the same partners are paired on this project as Mark Apuyan and Huiyon Chong are working together on Pau Hana.
CORRECTION: Boy did we flub this one. We misunderstood a September assumption of liquor license filing with the state. Thanks to the comment below for pointing out our error. Here is the company behind the new restaurant:
PNW HAWAIIAN SPIRITS L.L.C. (PETER DUANE, JENI A. DUANE, DERRICK ROWLAND and BRUCE WILSON)
This might make it easier to get in touch with somebody more eager to talk about the new joint, too. CHS regrets the error.
No details on hours or the menu yet but they do have a Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pauhanaseattle Its bio, we assume, belong to Apuyan:

Owner, Pau Hana Restaurant and Bar, Capitol Hill – Seattle.
Pau Hana is located at 2355 1/2 10th Ave East.
- Reminder that, next door, Easy Joe’s Diner is up and running in the old Tidbit Bistro Space.
- December 12th is the date for a special white truffle dinner at East Union’s Marjorie after a reschedule the restaurant says was caused by delays procuring the expensive ingredient. How expensive? Dinner costs $175. Per person.
- Note to Capitol Hill restaurants and bars. We mean you no ill will. If you’re trying to sell your business and you make information available, the word is going to get out. Talk with your employees early and often. Easy for us to say, no?
- Happy 1st birthday to CHS advertiser Po Dog. The celebrated Sunday by handing out hot dogs for $1.
- Cafe Metropolitain has left East Olive Way. CC Attle’s has been telling fans it hoped to be moved into its new home by the end of the month.
- Nagle Place karaoke fantasyland Rock Box is pushing to be open by the first week of December. You can get updates on their Facebook page. You can also weigh in on important things like song selections. We wrote about what Rock Box has in store here.
- Others pushing toward openings in coming weeks: Varro Cafe and Eltana Bagels in the Packard Building on 12th Ave. Oola Distillery on East Union? No word on status there.
- Also on 12th Ave in the Trace Lofts building, High 5 Pie is coming together but no firm opening date set yet. You can, however, order your Thanksgiving pie from them through Monday at http://www.high5pie.com/. High 5 is a CHS advertiser.
- More pie. First Hill’s Sugar Barkery is adorable and well worth a walk down or up or around Madison. They also are having a Thanksgiving pie sale.
- Yummm. Unicorn burger. East Pike’s Unicorn bar is proud of their new hamburger menu. We’re told the creations are an homage to the still-legendary In’N'Out burger offerings. Picture via @zombielolita
- Balance to any unicorn you consume. Smith and Oddfellows are starting a new Meatless Monday promotion. Begins 11/29.
- In the wake of the state liquor board causing a flap over porn at the Eagle, a group is looking at creating a “Nightlife Legal Defense Fund”
Could Seattle use a 501c3 “Nightlife Legal Defense Fund” to help protect our nightclub owners, managers, and workers from these continued lame (dare I say “family-values-induced”? / dare I say homophobic?) attacks on Seattle’s rights to party??
Video artwork continues to evolve, and will push and blur the boundaries between “pornography” and “artwork”….
- can video artwork projections played in bars/clubs include men’s nipples? women’s?
- how much of the nipple needs to be blurred out- just the tip or the entire areola?
- does showing pubic hair depend on where it’s growing?
- exactly what parts between the base of a man’s penis + his body can be shown?
- what about the area between a man’s ball’s + his rectum?
- can any of this be shown if put through a number of filters/etc?
- are there any time considerations (i.e. nipple can be shown but only for a maximum of 2 seconds out of every 30 second intervals)?
- what about stop-motion imagery -vs- video?
We realize this quickly becomes a very subjective matter, especially since the line will continue to blur, especially when “porn” is edited to the point beyond clear recognition.
Working Media would like to know specifically what the laws are for Washington State, especially since it appears as though the laws are being un-evenly applied between different bars/clubs in King County. Working Media has submitted an official inquiry to the Washington State Attorney General’s Office and will post their reply when received.
…Any thoughts from Seattle’s “straight but not narrow” nightlife aficionado neighbors??
- Secret Service now says Capitol Hill credit and bank card breach appears to involve only one restaurant.
