Hellos …and Goodbyes


You may already have a relationship with this nonprofit banking institution. Originally Seattle-based, now you can find Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union (SMCU) locations from Lynwood to Tukwila, with the closest locations on Rainier Ave. S. and Georgetown. Until January 6th that is! If you haven’t already rsvp’d to their grand opening for the official opening of SMCU’s newest location—right here on Beacon Hill’s Roberto Maestas Festival Street—we hope you will wander by in the coming days to check out Beacon Hill’s newest business.

SMCU Announces Beacon Hill Branch to Serve Latino Community Jan 6 2017



We are already big fans of Luis and Leona’s coffee house but now we get to celebrate and support their new phase of operation as they expand into their new space, and revision the old. Read the news and stay close to the wire for updates as they make the move real.


GOODBYE (sort of)!

You likely know about the sad vacancy at 3201 Beacon Ave. South. It was a surprise for many, but the family-run business has been dealing with ongoing lease and tenant issues for months. Kusina Filipina served the Filipino and Beacon Hill community for more than a decade. From ROCKiT Space open mic night to BHMA Networking Luncheons, we are thankful for the many memories and yummy meals. For now, the family will continue making food available via Chebogz Filipino Food Truck. Follow their story here (I know we will!!):
