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.

Experimentation drives Matt Bumpas, the former pastry chef of Poppy restaurant who now owns Sweet Bumpas. He currently sells his ice cream, which comes in unique flavors like rhubarb pineapple and chipotle peanut brittle, at outdoor markets around the city, as well as for private events and special orders—and, in July 2017, he opened a kitchen window that serves scoops and pints on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons. While he plays around a lot, Bumpas is a technically driven chef. "People think ice cream can't be elevated," he says. "It is a simple thing, but there is a complexity to it that people don't understand. And even people making ice cream don't understand." ANGELA GARBES
