Retirement party for Real Change vendor Bob is Thursday morning in front of Phinney Starbucks

Bob, who has been selling the Real Change newspaper in front of the Phinney Ridge Starbucks for more than a decade, is retiring. Some of his regular customers want to send him out in style with a special retirement party from 6-8:30 a.m. Thursday (his usual shift) at the Starbucks at the corner of Phinney Avenue North and North 67th Street.

There will be free coffee and cookies, and a jar to contribute to Bob’s “401k” if you can. Just look for the purple and gold balloons, in honor of his love for the Huskies.
Update: Bob wrote a farewell poem to all his customers:

And here he is with some of his loyal customers at his retirement party. Thanks to Mike V for the photo.
