art-making at Full Tilt

I'm spreading the word about a wonderful drop-in art making opportunity. Every Saturday, from 12 - 2ish the Full Tilt ice cream shop in Columbia City hosts The Makery. This amazing roving studio has everything you and your kids need for creative inspiration.

This month the focus is on Joseph Cornell and making boxes filled with found objects. They have wonderful papers, vintage buttons, shells, fabric, and many little things that are of mysterious origin.

Bring it on down

A large segment of our food purchases at Rainier Valley Food Bank (4205 Rainier Ave S) are fresh fruits and vegetables. This is where you, dear neighbors, can get involved.

Got a garden with extra vegetables or herbs? Bring it on down! Got a fruit tree laden with more fruit than you could eat all year going ripe on the branch? Bring it on down! If you don't currently have surplus food in your yard or garden, consider planting an extra row for the food bank. We are always happy to accept fresh produce grown locally. You can always count on your donation going to a worthy belly, and feel great about feeding your own community. It could be the most important trip of your week!

Thanks to everyone who came down to our grand opening celebration — it was insane, and insanely fun!

We've also got a great menu of specialty cocktails, an extensive selection of bourbon (our front bar is the Bourbon Bar, after all), happy hour 4-7 Sunday through Thursday and we serve Tutta Bella's full menu. Karaoke on Wednesdays!

Shirley & Marvin attend Shirley Marvin Hotel opening

The Shirley Marvin Extended-Stay Hotel opened June 11th in the presence of the building's namesakes. The Shirley Marvin was built in 1935 by D.C. Brown, one of the founding fathers of Columbia City. He named the building after his grandchildren, Shirley and Marvin (who we all know as Buzz).

Shirley Perringer and Marvin (Buzz) Anderson and his wife Jo attended the open house of the hotel along with their extended family. They exchanged many memories and stories as children and grandchildren remembered visiting and playing at the building over the decades.
