Kirkland Views reports that the Redmond fire department will take on any foolhardy challengers in a three-on-three basketball tournament and canned-food drive at 3 p.m. this afternoon at the Old Fire House Teen Center at 16510 N.E. 79th St. The food will go to Redmond's Hopelink Food Bank, and last-minute teams can still participate by showing up an hour before the tournament with a minimum of three cans of food to donate.
In other news, the 5 Point Café at 415 Cedar St. in Belltown has opened their outdoor seating area for the summer and will serve their full menu from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Initially, nearby residents and the Tilikum Place Café resisted the addition, but after negotiations agreements were reached.
Finally, according to My Green Lake, since no boarder should be without their morning roast, the owners of Motion Boardshop are opening a coffee shop at 84th and Aurora. The shop is expected to open Sunday, June 26, and will feature freshly made sandwiches, soups, and salads, as well as Stumptown coffee and treats from Macrina Bakery.
