After the busy holiday season, things are slowing down for January, with fewer Lake Union events to attend. But these happenings are still notable things to do and add to your calendar as you plan your activities through January…
January 1: 13 Coins’ Last Day Open in SLU
All Day | 13 Coins
With all of the development of the area, longtime restaurant resident 13 Coins must relocate so that their current SLU location can be redeveloped. The restaurant will be moving to Pioneer Square and opening on January 13th, but January 1st will be their last day open in South Lake Union. The ownership will be rolling back several menu items to their 1967 pricing (when 13 Coins first opened in SLU), and guests can take their 13 Coins plates home with them as a commemorative memento, while supplies last.
