You can get cupcakes again. And pot? That has been essential. But we are also seeing other signs that Capitol Hill is snapping back to life — safely and maybe little more soberly — as COVID-19 infections slow and knowledge about the outbreak improves.
Down E Pine, Linda’s Tavern is back in business in a limited way. Its burger pop-ups started earlier this month with Thursday and Friday, 4 to 8 PM hours:
We’re ready for you today! Stop by from 4-8 and pick up one of our Margarita Kits or any of the other tasty snacks we’re offering today and tomorrow! Swipe left for our takeout menu and order in person, call us at (206) 325-1220, or head to the link in our bio to place your order through @tockhq
With takeout or delivery via Tock, you can do your best to recreate Linda’s dive good times in your own home. A Linda’s party via conference call? Go for it.
The menu includes a selection of Linda’s burgers, hot wings, plus onion rings, tots, fries, or, all three. On the booze end of things, you can buy beers by the bottle or can, or choose from a Linda’s worthy selection of “single” cocktail kits including margaritas and Rachel’s Ginger Beer mules. You also have to wonder if cocktail kits for 4 — $35 for the margarita set — might outlive COVID-19.
UPDATE: Adam Szafranski of The Derschang Group family of bars and restaurants tells CHS that there will also be Linda’s shirts and swag available for sale with all proceeds going to a fund set up to help the company’s workers. Szafranski said Linda’s brunch might also be a future pop-up option. The group’s Oddfellows is also doing limited service including Saturdays and Sundays with a brunch menu that Szafranski said could help inform what comes next at Linda’s. “Eggs are hard to do for takeout,” Szafranski said.
Linda’s is located at 707 E Pine. You can learn more and order online here.
