The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.


This business has special options available during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Korean-born chef and entrepreneur Heong Soon Park split his Pike Place Market brunch spot Bacco Cafe into two parts to make Chan (pronounced "chahn," it means "all the food except for the rice," he says). He's making locally sourced Korean small plates both traditional (braised short ribs, poached black cod) and modern (kimchi pork belly, bulgogi sliders), all prettily presented; the Sojito, a soju mojito, sounds dangerously easy to drink. Chan opens onto the lovely courtyard of the Inn at the Market.
