Happy Weekend, Foster People!

Happy Friday, folks. We hope your St. Paddy’s Day hangovers are manageable and that you’re primed for the weekend. We get a sun and warmth tease for most of Friday and Saturday, but then it’s back to rain Sunday and beyond. A bit of something for everyone…just like Foster.

Here are your weekend tidbits…

– It just dawned on us how busy 2016 has been thus far. Since the new year, we’ve heard news of a taproom opening next door to SMART Collective, one of our new art galleries has opened an espresso bar, Euro Classic Furniture and all their lackeys have gone on an anti-Streetscape rampage, a third art gallery will soon be opening next to the already existing Latchkey Gallery, a 30-unit apartment building is being planned at (roughly) 58th and Foster, ROSE CDC is awaiting word on their proposed mixed-use development at 72nd and Foster, the old Softipper Dart space is being renovated into a market, and Foster just brought back a monthly art walk. Whoa!

– Oh, about that art walk…you can get a few pictures from the first Second Saturday here. And here’s a small blurb on the third and newest art gallery to be opening in the neighborhood.

– Just in time for the changing weather: Bar Maven is rebuilding its patio. An improved outdoor space for eating and drinking on Foster? Yes, please. Kudos to Bar Maven for improving an already rad spot.

– Get your “ecstatic dance” on at Performance Works NW this Friday evening.

– Fish and Chips? Clam Chowder? Say it ain’t so. The fallout from Division development frenzy, and the demise of A La Carts, has turned into a boon for Carts on Foster. Year of the Fish food cart recently opened at the cart pod, and they’ve joined Jurassic Cart for a one-two punch of rad food additions to the neighborhood. Swell.

– Here’s your weekend entertainment:
FoPo Tavern- Ferociously Funny Fridays (standup comedy) at 9 pm
Starday Tavern- Early Night Jams w/Pete Kartsounes (6 pm), St. Patrick’s Hangover w/Happy Fun Ball Band (9 pm), Friday; Deephaus feat. Kala & Semblance, Saturday at 9 pm
SMART Collective- Punk Rock, Math Rock, Hardcore and Sludge Metal with Akira, Pinnacles, Emim, and Saoloa, Friday (6 pm)

Enjoy the weekend, all. Let us know what we missed.

    I’m pretty sure Year of the Fish is also selling pints of Scoop ice-cream which is our favorite ice-cream. The salted caramel is top notch. Bummed that Scoop decided to leave SE

    I hate having to make this point again but many developers are waiting to hear back about the opportunity for development on 72nd and Foster. I encourage consideration of a variety of developers, ROSE does great work but there are lots of games in town that deserve credit for their work too
