Truly- as in Eureka! Why is it taking you so long to open? It sounds like they may be re-thinking their Kirkland debut on Park Lane. After a few scheduled pushes on re-modeling the old Mi Mexico space, their PR dept has confirmed that the Kirkland project is currently 'on hold,' whatever that means. Rumor has it there's a 'For Lease' sign out front. Bummer. We got ditched.
In other kind-of sad news, it's time to un-decorate downtown Kirkland from all of its holiday glory. Bring your wire cutters/scissors and a ladder if you have it to Hallmark Realty on Sat Jan 21st from 9am-1pm to help take the lights down from all of the storefronts. You can sign up here. There is a pizza reward for all of those who lend a hand! (hello students looking for volunteer hours..)
