Ballard’s electric bike destination, Electric and Folding Bikes Northwest

Commuting on his electric bike has been a game-changer, Johnson said. He’s been hooked on the mode of transportation since he started working at Electric and Folding Bikes Northwest, 4810 17th Ave NW in Ballard, in 2009.

Reuben’s creates ‘Good Hair Day’ brew for Rudy’s

Reuben’s will hold a Good Hair Day launch event at its taproom at 5010 14th Ave NW this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Rudy’s stylists will be on hand starting at noon “to serve up buzzcuts, bang trims and fresh fades” (hopefully while not drinking too much beer.)

    Reuben's creates 'Good Hair Day' brew for Rudy's
    Brewery collaborations are all the rage these days, and Reuben's Brews has a unique one in store: a 25th anniversary beer for Rudy's Barbershop called "Good Hair Day." "While a beer partnership might seem unlikely for a barbershop, we've never been ones to do what's expected and that's how we've stayed fresh," said Danny Segal, director of marketing and brand at Rudy's, which first opened in Capitol Hill back in 1993.

Pedestrian signal, crosswalk and bus-only lane coming to 15th Ave. NW

This stretch of 15th Ave. NW is becoming home to several apartment complexes, including a new development planned for 51st and 15th.

That busy stretch carries an estimated 50,000 vehicles and 15,000 bus passengers every day, SDOT says. For nearly half a mile — between Market and Leary — there are no crosswalks, which often results in some pedestrians making a mad dash across 15th.
