LaVassar Florist and Roaring Mouse Annual Holiday Open House details

Once again, northern Ravenna businesses LaVassar Florists and Roaring Mouse Creative Arts Studio (7530 20th Avenue NE) are holding their Annual Holiday Open House.

This year the event takes place on Saturday, December 3 from 10 AM-5 PM.

Thirteen artists and vendors will have their wares available for purchase (see the full list on the event flier below).

Raffle prizes include three fresh arrangements from LaVassar, and two $50 gift certificates for Roaring Mouse.

Santa himself will attend the event from noon until 2 PM — he’s a busy guy these days. Complimentary photos are available, or you can use your own camera.

Cookies and cider will be available. But if you’re still hungry, check out the bake sale — the proceeds of which benefit Hopelink Food Bank.

Are you crafty, and local? There’s a Ravenna holiday sale for that.

The Fourth Annual Ravenna Holiday Arts & Crafts Sale is looking for a few more local crafty types to sell their wares during the event on Saturday, December 10.

The deadline for artist applications has been extended to Tuesday, November 22.

The application and all the details about the sale — table sizes, advertising, artist responsibilities and more — can be found in this document (PDF).

Zaw Artisan Pizza coming to Wedgwood in the new year

Zaw's new home in Wedgwood

Where once there was a Domino’s there shall now be a place that makes take-home pizzas, like the Twice Baked Potato, Pig ‘n Pear, and Tailgate Feast.

Zaw Artisan Pizza is coming to Wedgwood (7320 35th Ave NE).

On or around January 10th is the rumored verified opening date. Exterior preparations due in the next few days are a paint job and new windows. (And a new sign, we’re guessin’.)

Along with a variety of take-and-bake pizzas (featuring many locally sourced and organic ingredients), you can choose from a variety of local beers, wines and sodas. Not sure what pairs with your pie? They’ve already done the research for you: Recommended pairings are listed on the menu.

Salads are offered as well. Among them is a Caesar salad wedge that looks like you could pick it up and eat out out of hand.

Wondering if Zaw will offer home delivery? The answer is YES. Once they’re open for business, from 4:30-9pm you can have your pizza delivered to your door…by BIKE.

Zaw’s other four locations are Capitol Hill, Ballard, Queen Anne and South Lake Union.

UPDATE: Their gluten-free crust will be available at this location as well (via twitter).
