Wayward Coffeehouse at 8570 Greenwood Ave. N. is still closed after the accidental Nov. 22 fire at neighboring Rite Zone discount store caused water and smoke damage. Wayward staff members are still assessing the damage and don’t have a reopening date. They have set up the online “Wayward Phoenix Fund,” with the help of Seattle Browncoats Charities.
From their latest email update to supporters:
We are doing everything we can to get Wayward Coffeehouse reopened as soon as possible but there are still many challenges to overcome. Some of those things are beyond our control and we are anxiously waiting for those issues to be resolved. Your donations will help us during the closure and with all we have to do to reopen.
One of the hardest parts of being shut down by the fire is not being able to see all of you each day. We miss you all!
We are very grateful for the support and assistance of Seattle Browncoats Charities for making donations to the Wayward Phoenix Fund possible. Wayward has been the coffee haven of the Seattle Browncoats since we opened our doors over 5 years ago (a “Browncoat” is a fan of the sci-fi show Firefly and its follow-up film Serenity). As Browncoats ourselves, we are especially heartened by their ongoing support of Wayward Coffeehouse. There’s a reason we’re proud to be the geek coffeehouse and home to all the fandom, social, gaming, writing, charity, etc. groups that share our love of sci-fi/fantasy and all things geeky! Your support makes us mighty!
