Urban Weeds closing its doors

December 31st, 2009 by master

Another Fremont business is closing up shop after a dismal year for small businesses nationwide.  This time Urban Weeds (4302 Fremont Ave N) takes the hit after opening in Upper Fremont two and a half years ago. 

UrbanWeeds

Owner Tim Halloran tells us a firm closing date has not been set and they have no plans to move to another location.  All inventory and equipment will be discounted until everything is gone.  At that point is when they’ll shut down.

We’re definitely sad to leave Upper Fremont. Our current lease is up in March, and we’re simply not profitable, so it just doesn’t make sense to renew.

In 2008, Seattle Magazine named Urban Weeds the “Best Shop for the Urban Gardener”.  The store is open Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. (but will be closed tomorrow for New Year’s Day).  Saturday and Sunday they’re open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  (Thanks to Faith for the tip!)

Paseo closed for extended vacation

December 30th, 2009 by master

In case you are craving a deliciously messy Caribbean sandwich from Paseo, you’ll have to wait until February to get your fix.

Signs on the popular restaurant at 4225 Fremont Ave N. indicate they are taking a long winter break through January 30.  The Ballard location is closed, as well, so you’ll have to find alternatives to satisfy your taste buds in the meantime.  If anyone has any suggestions, post them in the comments below.
