Press Release - Wayward Coffeehouse to Reopen in Seattle

posted August 19, 2011 by Jer


Any geek who was living in Seattle within the past two years knows about Wayward Coffeehouse. Some know it was forced to close do to fire damage. Well, after nine months without a haven, Seattle geekdom will soon have a home again. I got the following press release from The Captain. It sounds like it'll be a rocky road between here and there, but Wayward IS OFFICIALLY on it's way back!

To our beloved and much missed Wayward community,

After months of effort and exhaustive searching we have finally secured a new location for Wayward Coffeehouse!

The new site where we can once again gather over delicious coffee is in the Ravenna area at 65th and Roosevelt. We tried valiantly to find a suitable location in Greenwood, but although there are a few vacancies there, none met our needs for space and other criteria.

We are thrilled to finally have a new home and grateful that it is close by and we hope that many of you will still be able to come by as frequently as before. We are also excited to be able to spread the wonders of Wayward to a new neighborhood and expand the fabulous community of friends we built during our five years in Greenwood.

We hope to reopen by late October. There is a great deal of work to be done at our new space before we can once again greet all of you with a Muad'Dib Latte and Melbourne Sandwich. But we're gathering the crew and work is underway to transform our new space into our much missed coffee haven.

We have been so grateful to all those who contributed to the Wayward Phoenix Fund in the weeks and months after the fire and those donations helped the staff survive as they sought interim employment and helped with our ongoing legal costs.

... but we still need your help.

If you can, please help us get reopened by donating to the Wayward Phoenix Fund. All new donations will be used to help with the costs of rebuilding at our new home. For more information on how to donate, please go to: Wayward Phoenix Fund Donations and look for the Wayward logo to donate online or for information on donating by check. We again wish to thank Seattle Browncoats Charities for their support and assistance.

We have missed you all so much and are eager to open our doors again to the wonderful community of Wayward friends. Keep watching your inbox for updates on our rebuilding progress!

We aim to keep flyin' ...

Wayward Coffeehouse, it's better than a plan
