Okay, Reuben’s Brews’ brand new Wolfsburg Special isn’t really for goats, but it benefits them – $ 2 of each pack of four goes to Puget Sound Goat Rescue. The beer is available in a limited edition. So grab your backpack before it sells out!

They are open for takeout and limited dinner.

THURSDAY JULY 30th
New restrictions on personal eating
As reported by Rich Smith, Jay Inslee has several new personal meal orders. As of Thursday July 30th, indoor dining will be restricted to members of the same household seated at the same table. However, people can still dine outside with other people outside their household. In addition, all bars must be closed for indoor service and alcohol service in restaurants must end at 10:00 p.m. Finally, the districts currently in phase 3 must reduce the table size to no more than five people and the occupancy of the interior rooms to 50%.
College Inn Pub
That’s really bad. It’s easy for me to imagine a Seattle without Starbucks or Pike Place Market. But I can hardly imagine a Seattle without a College Inn pub. What kind of place is that? The wooden bar, the professors and students talking in the cubicles, the low ceiling. All of that rich wealth that resided in the basement of a university district hotel, the Tudor-style College Inn two stories above its lobby and street-level shops, did not survive the pandemic.
