The Phoenix Party, in the empty lot between 84th and 85th streets where Mr. Gyros, Neptune Coffee and Greenwood Quick Stop used to be, featured Mr. Gyros’ food truck – with a very long line of neighbors hungry for their gyro fix.

Seattle Police officers Lt. Greg Sackman and Sgt. Dianne Newsom of the North Precinct talked with people about crime concerns, while DJ Nicfit spun music in the background. New local radio station KBFG interviewed folks and reported on the event.

KOMO 4 had a report from the event.
