Ballard SeafoodFest

July 11-12, 2015 – Our favorite neighborhood festival! Ballard kicked off Seafair with its annual SeafoodFest this weekend, and Our/Seattle enjoyed its busiest weekend since our grand opening! Revelers from all across the city descended upon Ballard for a smorgasbord of delicious Pacific Northwest seafood and great live local music.

SeafoodFest also marked the production of a new batch of Our/Seattle Vodka. Each batch is hand-bottled by our distiller Allison over 2-3 days, producing approximately 1,100 new bottles. When SeafoodFest came to a close on Sunday night, our stomachs were stuffed and the distillery was STOCKED.

Kudos to Seattle Mag for putting on a successful new event! Looking forward to next year.

The New Frontier

Come Check out this new show by a group of our talented friends.  The show is up from April 17-August 16 at the Bellevue Art Museum.

The New Frontier presents works by young, locally based designer-makers. Examining the materials, processes, and creative strategies that define their practices, the exhibition acts as a catalyst for the discussion of how objects and products are conceived and created here; who is making them; and how the field of local design is reflective of this unique region.
