I don't know if you remember me commenting last year with you about our church hosting a block party in Norkirk? We're at it again and would like to extend an open invite to anyone in the neighborhood to join us on Saturday, 6 Oct 07 between 11:30 am and 5:00 pm. We're having free food, live music (NW University's Synergy jazz ensemble) and fun stuff for kids (painting pumpkins, face painting and games). Anyone is welcome to come. Its our way of saying we appreciate our neighborhood. Thanks and keep up the great articles for the weblog! Vince


JANIS you are such a MILF. Be proud in what you are! No need to delete my comments:)


Thank you for posting information about Brix Wine Cafe. We currently open at 4PM Tuesday - Sunday and will be open for lunch in a few weeks. My business partner (Dave) and I are having a lot of fun, and really enjoy being part of the same community we live in.

Our website: www.brixwinecafe.com will have menus posted soon!

Please stop in for glass of wine or some great food. Our Executive Chef, Craig Stout has really impressed us all.

Thanks - Keith


So disappointed in this place. I waited with much anticipation for it to open- I thought finally a nice place to go in Juanita and bonus that it is right around the corner from my house. Hopefully, they are still working out the kinks, but I won't hold my breath. The food was bad (no flavor, no imagination- just overall no good) and the wait staff had no idea how to give advice on the wine they serve. Considering that this is a wine bar, I expected the staff to be knowledgable. I may give this another chance, but it will be awhile before I go back. I do hope that the owners can turn this around as I do believe that Juanita needs a place with this type of vibe- just a new menu, different chef (or maybe just a new menu would fix it) and more knowledgable wait staff.


LOVED Brix! Went there for dinner Saturday night and enjoyed the great atmosphere and delicious food! Split a salad with beets, goat cheese & toasted hazelnuts followed by a great burger with blue cheese and caramelized onions. Service was top notch and made us feel right at home. We will be back :)


We love Brix. We've probably been there 5 times since it opened. The scallop appetizer rocks and the steak is excellent and really well priced at $21. We've never had poor service or anything that didn't meet our expectations in the food department, nor do you get any weird looks if you don't order wine (we often pop in just for the food even if we're not in a drinking mood). The wine list is small, but reasonably priced and diverse.
