Lucky Envelope is excited to have very full brew schedule planned for this summer with quite a few rotating seasonals. Below are the details on the first two beer releases of June.

Beer: Northwest IPA (6.2% ABV)
Availability: Friday, June 4th Release on Draft and 4-Pack Cans ($17)
Description: We blended our favorite lots of Centennial and Cascade hops in this beer to pay respect to the classic west coast IPA but with a new school edge. These classic PNW hops mixed with a touch of Citra lend flavors of lime popsicle, pine, geraniums, and lychee.

Beer: South African Juicy IPA (6.3% ABV)
Availability: Friday, June 4th Release on Draft and 4-Pack Cans ($20)
Description: The South African Juicy IPA is hop-loaded with Southern Passion and backed with Citra, Mosaic, and Amarillo Cryo. A full juice-like mouthfeel highlights the red raspberry notes of the coveted Southern Passion hops grown in South Africa. The 2021 return of this ENIAC Series Juicy IPA will excite beer drinkers looking for a flavorful, hop-loaded IPA option this June.

After years of traveling overseas and experiencing wine bars in Europe, 15 year Phinney Ridge residents, Julie and Andrew Goldstein, decided to bring this casual and fun experience to their neighborhood. Chez Phinney, a wine bar,  is excited to join the bustling main street at 7400 Greenwood Ave N. with plans to open this Summer. The location housed Bluebird Ice Cream for 10 years before they moved across the street earlier this spring.

While Seattle has its fair share of breweries, there is an absence of neighborhood wine bars, Chez Phinney will be a self serve establishment offering 24 different wines by the ounce. This allows the guest to try a one ounce pour before buying a larger three or five ounce selection. Chez Phinney will focus on smaller Pacific Northwest wineries as well as Old World mainstays. They will also offer four local beers on draft with a small menu of tidbits to cleanse the palette. 

Stay tuned to Phinneywood for updates!

On June 5th, 3-5p, Rainbow Hoppers can stop and refuel at Morrow Lane (behind Bartell’s and Snapdoodle Toys) with ice cream, music, and info on our summer programming. There will be an ice-cream pop-up by Bluebird Ice Cream, informal acoustic jam sessions led by School of Rock volunteers, gym tours and discounted day-use passes at Half Moon Bouldering, and raffles to win exciting prizes from School of Rock, Title Boxing, Bluebird Ice Cream, and Half Moon Bouldering. Be sure to stop by!

Join your neighbors this weekend (June 5-6) for a huge Buy Nothing Free Day. Hosted by 5 Buy Nothing groups: Lower Phinney, Whittier Heights, Loyal Heights, Greenwood (85th-95th/Greenwood Ave-Aurora), and Greenwood West (85th-105th/8th Ave-Greenwood Ave).

Over 100 households will have items outside for free between 9 am and 3 pm each day. You can access the full map here. Have fun!

After taking a year’s hiatus from their popular and well-attended WildBites event series, The Woodland Park Zoo announced today they are returning later this year as the pandemic starts to subside. Rather than a single event that matches restaurants with bars, this year’s iteration will be a 4-part after hours series matching Seattle’s best chefs with local whisky distillaries.

Proceeds from the event go to furthering the Zoo’s mission of actively fighting species extinction globally: “As if it could get any sweeter, every bite you take helps ensure a brighter future for our planet. This adults-only event is inspired by the zoo’s mission to save species—each ticket sold raises funds to help save wildlife in the Pacific Northwest and around the world.”

Each Thursday night in August, attendeed will be able to wander through the zoo after houes and taste the fare of four different chefs and different distilleries per night. The entire zoo will remain open so patrons can visit all of thier favorite animals while sampling and sipping.

Whiskey & WildBites tickets are $95 and include complimentary bites crafted by some of Seattle’s premier chefs, six tasting tickets to sample whiskey expressions offered by premier distilleries, two beverage tickets to be redeemed for a full pour of beer or wine, animal experiences located on the zoo’s North Meadow, and uncrowded access to all zoo exhibits.

Specialty desserts will be prepared nightly by Executive Chef David VanGelder of Levy Restaurants and Woodland Park Zoo

While we normally kick off Pride month with face painting, arts and crafts, and other exciting community activities, these are unusual times. While we cannot gather together to celebrate Pride, it is important that we let the world know that Phinney-Greenwood is safe, inclusive, and committed to equity. There is no appointed time or place this year, just a walking tour of the business community.

Businesses all along Greenwood will be participating in the “Hop Route” and will decorate their windows and sidewalks with rainbow images to promote inclusiveness and fun. This year there is a record 45 businesses that are decorating and showing their support for Pride Month – can you see them all? Put on your hiking shoes and venture out, rain or shine, this Saturday. You can download the map of participating businesses and organizations here.

This year the PNA is proud to be teaming up with the Robert Eagle Staff Middle School Queer-Straight Alliance and the Whitman Middle School Pride Club. We are and donating half of all sponsorship proceeds to benefit those clubs and their missions of inclusivity and understanding. A HUGE thank you to our 19 generous sponsors!
