There are dozens of holiday activities this month, but several should top your “to do” list this month.

Nightly at 7:00 PM Bellevue Way is closed between NE 4th and NE 8th Streets for Snowflake Lane featuring drummers, dancers, holiday characters and a parade complete with snow every night. Arrive early, sidewalks on both sides of the street fill up quickly, but it’s definitely worth the time and effort for this holiday tradition. Kids of all ages will love the event.

Another New Restaurant Downtown

Another new restaurant, Henry’s Tavern, is scheduled to open August 30th at Lincoln Square. Henry’s Tavern is best known for its wide selection of beers on tap, its frosted bar rail to keep beers cold and a vast menu. This will be the sixth Henry’s Tavern for Restaurants Unlimited, Inc.

Henry’s opened in Portland in 2004 and expanded to Seattle in 2013 with a Sodo location. This is the second Bellevue location for Restaurants Unlimited, Inc.  –  the other is Palomino. The restaurant will be 11,000+ SF with a 700 square foot patio and a keg wall  –  a two tiered glass cooler that has all kegs on display.

Henry’s Tavern will join several other restaurants that have already opened or are scheduled to open in the coming weeks at Lincoln Square expansion.
