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.

The beloved wine (and tasty food) purveyors at Vif have launched their online wine shop, which features limited offerings that they hope to expand weekly. You can pick it up on their doorstep and browse some additional bottles displayed in their window, plus Olympia Coffee Roasters beans. If you're a member of their wine club, they're also offering a special "Quarantine Club" edition with six bottles of wine for $150 or less. Their brand-new Beacon Hill sister bar, Petite Soif, also has lots of good wine for sale on their website, which you can pick up on Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

Pickup schedule: Wednesday-Saturday, 12-5 p.m.

You could call Vif a cafe, a coffee shop, or a wine shop. It's all of these things, but it's also something more. Open for a little more than two years in Fremont, Vif offers a rare kind of nourishment in Seattle. And while it might be a stretch to call Vif a restaurant, its food is certainly restaurant quality.
