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.

Tin Umbrella Coffee

5600 Rainier Ave S (Rainier Valley)
Seattle, WA 98118
Built in the '20s, the space that houses Hillman City cafe Tin Umbrella was formerly a furniture shop, then a gambling den. One of the giant, weathered carpentry tables from the space's early days now serves as a cream and sugar station. The cafe offers boozy miniature pies from It's Pie Life (you will want seven of them) and soft biscotti from Chilelli Foods. They're also sponsoring a storm drain through the city's Adopt-a-Drain program, which they've named Dwayne the Drain (awesome owner Joya Iverson has a sense of humor).
Mon-Fri 7 am-2 pm, Sat-Sun 8 am-2 pm
