Paseo, the very popular and seriously delicious, nationally renowned Caribbean sandwich shop in Fremont, is expanding to SoDo with the grand opening of its 1760 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA location (on the corner of Holgate St & 1st Ave S) today from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Located at the center of Seattle’s sports core by CenturyLink and Safeco Fields, the former diner space (Donna’s Diner & Mac’s Smokehouse…both listed on the current sign until Paseo’s new sign goes up), was leased from developer Chris Hansen.

A local furniture favorite makes the move from SoDo to First Avenue.

Jim Newsom, founder and owner of Urban Hardwoods, knows a thing or two about local timber. For the past 15 years, his company has created gorgeous furniture using native tree species native of the Pacific Northwest. Last month, the company’s new brick-and-mortar location – a 6,600-square-foot showroom located in the heart of Belltown – opened its doors, and Newsom couldn’t be more thrilled.
