According to SeattlePI.com, more than 850 stores in Washington have applied for a license to sell hard liquor under new rules put in place by the passage of Initiative 1183.
That initiative, passed by voters in November, gets the state out of the liquor sales business. Gone will be the state liquor stores. Now you'll be able to buy hard booze at stores that receive a spirits license from the state.
So far, the only store in Eastlake to apply for a spirits license is Pete's Super Market at E. Lynn and Fairview E. Pete's application is "pending," according to the Washington State Liquor Control Board's website. Pete's is known for its big wine selection.
Vanessa Ho, writing at SeattlePI.com, says I-1183 "allows stores at least 10,000 square feet to sell vodka, gin and other spirits. There’s an exception for smaller stores, if no other store sells liquor in its 'trade area.' The state still needs to define that term."
There's news about liquor licenses at two Eastlake restaurants:
Application has been made for a liquor license for a new restaurant at 2865 Eastlake Ave. E.: Little Water Cantina.
The restaurant would go into a commercial space in the Eastlake 2851 apartments.
An employee of the apartments said the restaurant was expected to open in a couple of months. She said that some of the people involved in the restaurant were from New York, although records in the Secretary of State's Office for Little Water Cantina LLC show that some of those involved in the business have addresses in Fremont.
The application says the type of liquor license would be for beer, wine, spirits and that the establishment will have a restaurant and lounge with half or more of the space devoted to dining.
A concept drawing of how the space at 2865 might be configured into a restaurant is on display inside the front door. The restaurant will get to use deck space on the west side of the building with views of Lake Union and Gas Works Park, the apartment employee said. See the photos for a better idea of what it looks like.
No other information is available on the new restaurant.
In other liquor application news, the 14 Carrot Cafe, 2305 Eastlake Ave. E., has applied for a license to serve beer and wine.
The Slog lauded the Zoo as:
What got people's attention was the next sentence in the Slog post where they noted that you could "drink a little whiskey" at the popular Eastlake tavern. What the ... ?!? Had the Zoo suddenly changed liquor licenses without anyone noticing?
Nope. A call to the Zoo (and a check of its Web site) confirms that it's still just beer and wine (and a few food items) at the Zoo's bar.
Not sure that I'd agree with the Slog that the Zoo has a "clammy" quality. What it does have is a comfortable air about it. It's a relaxed place where, like a certain TV show of a few years ago, "everybody knows your name." And there's no pressure to do anything but linger over a beer or a glass of wine and maybe chat with your neighbor, or not, as the mood strikes you.
Some things don't change much, or very quickly, as the years go by. And you have to admire that. Thanks, Eastlake Zoo, for being your reliable self. Carry on!
