Here’s the complete list of neighborhood winners in KING 5’s Best of Western Washington contest, including first place winners Valentine’s Men’s Grooming for best barber, Slave to the Needle for best tattoo parlor, Whole Life Yoga for best yoga studio, Woodland Park Zoo for fun place for kids, Red Mill Burgers for their burgers and Gordito’s for best burrito. You can pretty much plan your whole day around just those six.
Full disclosure: In my day job, I work for KING5.com, but Phinneywood is a totally separate enterprise that I do on my own time. I’m writing this to give props to the many local favorites being rated so highly. It reminds me why Doree and I like this area so much.
