Seafair Pirates invade Maple Leaf!

August 3rd, 2012 by master

We didn’t mean to get you down about Seafair by complaining about the traffic in our last post. In fact, the return of Seafair means the return of many a tradition, including this weekend’s annual Lake City Pioneer Days, which is a Seafair event that stars the infamous Seafair Pirates in the Grand Performance Parade starting at 7 p.m. Saturday.

And after that, the Seafair Pirates are coming to Maple Leaf!!!

That’s right, Dan Kerege, president of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie #1, tipped us off that the pirates are heading to the Eagles nest at 8201 Lake City Way N.E. at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

Maybe next year we can get them to come to the Maple Leaf Summer Ice Cream Social!

Free milk cartons today for upcoming Green Lake derby

May 27th, 2010 by master

Seafair’s Pirate’s Booty Milk Carton Derby may not be until July 10, but it’s time to start designing if you want to win the annual contest at Green Lake.

And the Roosevelt Square Whole Foods Market, 1026 N.E. 64th St., hopes to help you take home the prize by offering free Organic Valley milk cartons today from 2-6 p.m.

MyGreenlake has the scoop:

In addition to the milk carton melee happening outside, inside Organic Valley farmers will surprise two lucky shoppers by paying for their entire cart of groceries! A week’s worth of breakfasts, lunches, dinners and more! The only prerequisite: The shopper must already have an Organic Valley product in their cart. Timing of the two “shopping cart surprises” is a secret, but get “caught” at Whole Foods Market on the 27th with Organic Valley products in your cart and you could win! It’s a gift from the 27 Washington farmer-owners of Organic Valley to Whole Foods shoppers as thanks for their devotion to organic foods and for keeping organic farmers on the land.

Pirate’s Booty and Organic Valley will be sampling their delicious snacks in the store from 2:00-6:00pm. Join us for a day of fun and start designing those Spanish galleons!
