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.

Korochka Tavern

2317 N 45th St (Wallingford)
Seattle, WA 98103
This beloved Russian bar, which Stranger contributor Meg van Huygen praised for its "cozy, unpretentious chill," closed without warning in Lake City in October. Happily, after a successful crowdfunding campaign, it will now be re-opening in a new spot in Wallingford (the former space of the neighborhood bar The Grizzled Wizard), hopefully by February 2020.
