An early look at the Good Citizen (Images: CHS)
This might be the most CHS way to spend Election Night+Seattle Night Out… ever: gathering with the enthusiasts from the 1,500-member strong District 3 Facebook Group at a not-quite-opened yet bar/coffee shop from a maverick Capitol Hill business owner who doesn’t mind stirring in a little controversy with his hand-crafted cocktails.
Come meet your neighbors; enjoy hearty conversations about our neighborhoods, our district, and our city; and connect with people!
August 4 – 6PM – Good Citizen Bar
*Registered as an official Seattle Night Out event
Party! More about other area Seattle Night Out parties here — including the annual City Market BBQ. Meanwhile, it’s Primary Night with the first ballot counts expected around 8:15 PM. Your ballot, by the way, is due by 8 PM. Here is our CHS 2015 Primary Election coverage if you’re looking for any last minute guidance. We’re also conducting a non-scientific D3 poll here.
Capitol Hill will also be full of primary parties Tuesday night. Here is who will be celebrating where:
- Pamela Banks – 95 Slide
- Kshama Sawant – Melrose Market Studios
- Rod Hearne – Poco Wine + Sprits
- Morgan Beach/Jon Grant – Bar Sue
- John Roderick — Canterbury Ale House
After we jumped the gun apparently earlier this year, we can now tell you Good Citizen is planned to open for coffee only to start later this summer, owner Andrew Friedman tells CHS. In addition to meeting your neighbors, you’ll have a chance to check out the soon-to-be-really-open joint.
