Tomorrow at Sole Repair there will be a neighborhood get together for people to learn more about 12th Avenue Arts. This project of Capitol Hill Housing will transform an East District police parking lot (pictured below) into a mixed-use development with affordable housing, community meeting space, retail, arts space, and underground parking for police vehicles. For years, Capitol Hill Housing has been working to make this project real, and back in June it was officially announced. We’re excited to hear the latest updates.
We hope to see you at Sole Repair tomorrow. And, it will be a chance to have a drink with Tim Keck
and Jerry Everard

Eat Out on Capitol Hill, Sept 14, 2011
Save the afternoon of Sunday, August 14, 12pm-6pm, and your appetite, for the 12th Avenue Neighborhood Festival on Seattle’s Capitol Hill between E. Madison and E. Pike Streets. Now in its second year, the festival features affordable plates (priced at $5 or less) from more than 30 neighborhood vendors.
Taste your way down restaurant row and discover favorite dishes from 12th Avenue and nearby eateries such as Café Presse, Osteria La Spiga, Barrio, Zobel Ethiopian Restaurant, High 5 Pie, Bluebird Microcreamery, Poquitos, Ambassel Ethiopian Restaurant, Via Tribunali, and many more. There will be music, activities for kiddos, and so much ice cream. Caffe Vita will be there with cold brew!

“Hold the phone! They’re doing what??!!”
Like peanut butter and jelly, strawberries and cream, and whiskey and ginger ale before it; combining Caffe Vita espresso with frozen custard had to have been an idea placed by some sort of divine intervention.
On Sunday, August 8th, Old School Frozen Custard will feature Caffe Vita Espresso as their flavor-of-the-day. If you’ve never had frozen custard, well, it’s kind of bizarre it never really took off on the West Coast. Do we not, out here, enjoy the finer things in life? Frozen custard is like the best ice-cream you’ve ever had, only creamier. Think ice-cream crossed with gelato. Frozen custard is huge in the Midwest. Custard joints are like McDonald’s in Wisconsin (a land known for appreciation of fine beer and cheese), if that tells you anything.
Caffe Vita Espresso flavor Old School Frozen custard will be available at their Capitol Hill and Bonney Lake locations Sunday from noon until late night (so, you know, enough time for a couple visits. Hey, it’s Sunday. Indulge a bit.).
Vita’s having a cupping tonight of the rare Kopi Luwak, the infamous by-product of the large Indonesian weasel, called a luwak. It likes to eat coffee beans when they’re ripe and juicy. After the beans are digested, they are harvested and roasted. Tonight at 6pm we’re having an invite-only cupping (complete with a Theo Chocolate tasting) at the Capitol Hill roasteria for our customers and friends.
Vita roaster Mason Sager and Bob Prince stopped by the KOMO News Radio studio this morning at 7:15 to cup the coffee, which is from East Java.
