Madrona School

Almost anywhere you eat on 34th Avenue on April 8 will benefit Madrona K-8 School as part of its 6th annual Dine Out fundraiser.

All you need to do to participate is let the restaurant know you’re there for Dine Out, and enjoy your meal! Participating 34th Avenue restaurants are: Bistro Turkuaz, Bottlehouse, Cupcake Royale/Verite, Hi Spot, Madrona Eatery and Alehouse, Naam, Pritty Boys Family Pizzeria, and St. Cloud’s. Barrio, on 12th Avenue on Capitol Hill will also be participating. Reservations are recommended if you choose a restaurant that takes them.

Book Next Year’s Madrona Outdoor Movie on Your Calendar!

Although its only mid September, the sidewalks are damp and the sky is gloomy and we can’t help looking forward to next summer! Remember how fun this year’s Outdoor screening of the Avengers movie was for you and your family? We had a good turn out this year, and we can count on this to be an annual neighborhood event thanks to Lunar Productions, St Clouds, and Girlie Press. Two Movie Tickets In Front Of A Take Clapperboard And A Reel Of Movie Film

It’s never too early to plan ahead and mark next year’s outdoor movie screening on your calendar, which falls on the Thursday following the annual Neighborhood Night Out, which is always scheduled for the first Tuesday of August. If you didn’t get the chance to check out the outdoor movie experience this summer, we hope you pack a cooler, grab a blanket and join us next summer for a neighborhood night at the movies.

St Clouds Named Best Pancakes in Seattle

St Clouds

Seattle Weekly has released their Best of Seattle awards for 2013, and with the votes in and ballots cast, our Madrona favorite St Clouds was awarded best pancakes in Seattle! There are so many things on the St Clouds breakfast menu that deserve an award, (like Grandma Hazel’s delicious sour cream coffee cake made fresh daily!) their pancakes have clearly won the attention of early risers across town. They are perfectly fluffy yet dense, and can be ordered with chocolate chips in them or blueberries on top- YUM! Congrats to St Clouds, we’re so glad a neighborhood restaurant made the Best of Seattle list!
