Notes and tasty tidbits await below. Got a tip? Got two tips? Let me buy you a drink.

 The Terravita mixed use building with 108 apartment units and up to 8,000 sf of retail space available. Scheduled for completion April, 2012, tenant work can begin in December 2011. Located in the heart of the Pike/Pine corridor. Type I shafts located in each of the corner spaces. Available now. $28.00 – $30.00/sf/yr + NNN ($6.50/sf). 

Terravita, eh? Too bad Terra Plata already has a home. Opens this month, reportedly.

  • All Vivace locations will be closed Tuesday for the Brian Fairbrother memorial march and picnic in Volunteer Park.
  • “If Bako’s doors were open already, we’d have something to share with all guests who entered today…” Instead, they’ll be open in October.
  • Early reviews are pretty much glowing for the new Canon on 12th Ave. Here’s a look inside if you haven’t stopped by yet.
  • We love neighborhood shutterbug sea turtle for his frequent contributions to the CHS Flickr pool so we listen up when he tells us what he loves:

Seattlites, check out Kanapé on Capitol Hill! They have great crepes (sweet or savory!), and canapés of course. It’s at the north end of Broadway, where Broadway splits into 10th Ave, in the Kinko’s/FedEx building. It’s been here since February, but we just discovered it. Delicious!

  • Cure has a $12 bottle of cava special on Sundays.
  • We assume this has nothing to do with Capitol Hill pop-up Shophouse, right?
  • Like we said, B&O isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
  • Thomas Market & Deli (and its likely to be delicious sandwiches) is slightly delayed. You will sandwich in October.
  • Lots of buzz last week for the Dinegerous mapping of Seattle restaurant health inspections. Here’s the Capitol Hill area map. Suppose it could be useful but, honestly, the county’s inspection system seems most effective over time — we’d be more freaked out by restaurant’s that turn in consistently worse scores than a moderately bad score on one inspection. You can see trends for a specific restaurant if you click the map markers. Try not to freak out.

  • Lil’ Woody’s has some good American eating contest marketing going on. Witness:
