Bicyclists To ‘Haul Ash’ Through Fremont May 15th

May 10th, 2011 by Sean Keeley

As a remembrance of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, Red Hook Brewery will hold the 16th annual “Haul Ash” Tour de Brew bicycle ride – a 42-mile, round-trip excursion between the current Red Hook Brewery (14300 NE 145th St) and Fremont, the birthplace of Red Hook, on Sunday, May 15th.

Fremont is expected to have heavier than usual bicycle traffic, especially on N 36th near LTD Bar and Grill, which is the half way stop point for the ride.

After departing Redhook riders will turn left, cross the bridge and head north on the Sammamish River Trail. Riders will meander along the Sammamish River Trail until it becomes the Burke-Gilman Trail. Views of Lake Washington, the University of Washington and Lake Union inspire riders to the midway point. Upon arriving in Fremont riders will turn right off of the Burke-Gilman trail onto Phinney Ave N. and continue North towards N. 36th Street. At the intersection of Phinney Ave and N. 36th Street,riders will take a left and continue halfway down the block to LTD Bar and Grill, the midway point, located on the left side of the street at 309 N. 36th Street.

Admission to the after-Party is included in the rider registration fee. The after-Party is also open to the public with a suggested entry donation of $5. Proceeds benefit Seattle’s Bike Works non-profit organization.

Kickoff time for new sports bar LTD

October 23rd, 2009 by Heidi

After several months of watching it come together, LTD Bar + Grill (309 N. 36th St) is finally opening it’s doors to the public on Saturday.  Co-owner Brian Parks describes it as the “only ‘true’ sports bar in Fremont”. 

LTD

The menu is “high-quality pub fare”, with prices ranging from around $3.25 for a pretzel to $11.25 for steak and fries or meatloaf.  There’s also lots of comfort food staples in between, like Tator Tots, Fried Pickles, Mac & Cheese Wedges and Pigs in a Blanket (all $4.95-$5.95). 

LTD bar

Eleven flat screen TVs line the walls around the bar and are viewable from virtually any spot inside.  There’s also a pool table, air hockey and 12 beers on tap.  That giant iPhone looking thing hanging on the wall (above) is a digital jukebox.  Gone are the days of discreet song selections here!

LTD will be open for lunch during the week at 11:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. on the weekend.  Happy Hour is from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday when several food items will be 4 to 5 bucks.  On Sundays, you can catch a game on TV and enjoy the Sunday Special – a burger and beer for $6.95.
