One Door Closes, Another Door Bangs Opens

Bang Bang owners Kate & Alex Wood are taking over the former Cha Cha Cha! location on Fremont and opening a new restaurant called Wonderly. Since we already can't get enough of the cocktail creations at Bang Bang, we volunteer as tributes to help perfect the new drink recipes at Wonderly. Opening January 2019.

Two for One

Cha Cha Cha! owner Javier Hurtado may have closed his Fremont restaurant, but he is still going strong. In fact, he is in the midst of opening two new locations (Cascade Station and Lake Oswego); marketing a line of salsas; & working with Base Camp Brewing on a tropical IPA called Unapologetic. Best of all, he is expanding the catering kitchen behind his former Fremont location so we will still have him in the neighhood.

Season's Feedings

This month Green Dog Pet Supply is supporting the Feral Cat Coalition’s annual pet food drive for cats. Stop in and buy a 5 or 13 pound bag of First Mate's Grain Friendly Cat Food (Green Dog is selling them at cost for $8.16 or $16.99) and it will be donated to people who bring in feral cats to be spayed or neutered. For every 12 bags sold, First Mate and Green Dog will each donate 2 more bags. Meow do you like that?
