According to this MyBallard article, Reuben’s Brewery (located in downtown Ballard) has raised over $7,000 for different local charities. Beginning last May, Reuben’s hosts a different charity or non-profit organization each Thursday and then donates $1 of every pint or growler that is sold that night to the featured organization.
Another aspect that is unique, is that Reuben’s encourages representatives from that nights featured organization to attend and raise awareness for their cause by talking about what they do. Tonight from 3pm to 8pm MEOW Cat Rescue will be the featured organization. For more information about this great weekly event, please visit Reuben’s website.
Thanks to this tip from MyBallard.com it looks like the popular and delicious 5 Guys Burger chain will be expanding into Ballard. While some details have yet to be released it appears that they will move into the retail space of one of the new apartment buildings being built at 15th Ave NW and Market St.
5 Guys offers a limited menu with few burger options but they offset that with what feels like unlimited toppings that you can add as well as large portions of hand cut fries. Ballard already has its fair share of burger restaurants most notably Red Mill, so we will have to watch how 5 Guys fits in. As you drive by the new construction on Market St. keep your eyes open for the grand opening!
